Land at Castlebay to visit Kisimul Castle and the Isle of Barra, the southernmost of the Outer Hebrides, separated at a distance of 8 km (5 miles) from South Uist by the Sound of Barra and the small island of Eriskay. Measuring about 13 km by 8 km (8 miles by 5 miles) it is joined to the adjacent island of Vatersay by a causeway built in 1990. The island was named after St Barr of Ireland, who converted the inhabitants to Christianity and its main economic activities are crofting and fishing. It is the ancient seat of the MacNeil Clan, whose splendid castle, Kisamul stands isolated in the entrance to Castlebay, Barra's main town. The island is the site of Viking and Celtic remains and a statue of the Virgin and Child, erected in 1954 on Heaval, the highest point on the island at 1260ft.
