The Islands of the Hebrides - Innse Gall
Isle of Benbecula - Beinn Na Faoghla
Bridges and causeways link North and South Uist, to Benbecula, the island of fords. With its airport, college, golf course, grocery and gift shops, hotels and cafes, Benbecula holds the administrative centre of the Southern Isles, and is the most built-up area of the Outer Hebrides outside Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. However, if take time to explore the island, or perhaps even run around it for the brilliant Benbecula Half Marathon, you'll appreciate that it is a really beautiful island, with a landscape of small islands and islets, well spaced out cottages, interesting monuments and historic remains, machair lands and fantastic expanses of shallow sandy bays, which when the light is right and the waters still, make for an unforgettable scene.
