Ardmhòr is a tiny, picture postcard perfect village on the Isle of Barra in the stunning Scottish Outer Hebrides.
Since 2003 there has been a ferry port here which links Barra to Eriskay (another island in the Outer Hebrides). The crossing takes 40 minutes. Before the ferry crossing there had been a causeway linking the islands.
The island of Barra may not be the first place a tourist would head to, but that is a shame as there is plenty to do there. Visiting Ardmhòr is one thing, and you’ll immediately fall in love with this picturesque village. It really is the ideal spot. As well as that, you can explore Kisimul Castle, which is a fascinating building only accessible by a slipway.
There is also the Barra Heritage and Cultural Centre where you can learn about the history of the island as well as see exhibitions and photographic displays. Perhaps surprisingly, there is also a chance to go snorkelling on the coast, and, unlike much of the UK where snorkelling gets you nothing but a muddy, murky view of nothing, on Barra the water is clear and there is plenty to see.
