Berneray lies in the Sound of Harris in the Western Isles of Scotland. It is a small island (roughly 2 miles by 3), rich in wildlife and history, with a long sweep of white sand on the west coast, backed by high dunes and machair.
Berneray has approximately 130 inhabitants, forming an active and friendly community. Crofting and fishing are mainstays of the economy, although tourism, Calmac, local schools, garages, fish farming and other forms of employment also provide income to island households.
Amongst the array of services and facilities, Berneray has a shop, tea room, post office, church, fishing harbour and community hall. During the summer months, an information centre containing historical and contemporary information is manned by local volunteers.
This website brings together information for the Berneray community and visitors to the island. Residents can find out what's happening locally, obtain information about local groups, advertise their businesses from one, easy-to-use resource. Visitors can discover how to get to Berneray, where to stay and what to do and see. Find out about Berneray's history and learn about its abundant flora and fauna.
