A beautiful evening on the even more beautiful Isle of Barra. The commonwealth cemetery is at the north of the island and is accessed from the main road then through a field down towards the beach. It’s uncertain as to who owns the land but from what I have read it is looked after by the Parish Priest of Barra.
A note of caution should you decide to try this walk, COWS and BULLS, yup everywhere and a little too friendly for my liking especially with 4 huskies, we came back round the coast climbing and passing the dogs over barbed wire fences to avoid the interest shown on our approach……a little unnerving.
The cemetery is only about a quarter of a mile from the camp site as taking a car here is a definite no no, there isn’t any parking and the main road is single track, at worst you could park a little further down the road at the hotel.
