The Arran Belles take on Hebridean challenge

Earlier this month 10 Arran Belles travelled to the Outer Hebrides to cycle the 145 miles from Castlebay on Barra to Stornoway on Lewis staying in hostels, bunkhouses and even a tractor shed along the way.

On a beautiful, calm morning the seven hour ferry trip from Oban to Barra, calling in at Coll and Tiree, passed very quickly before a quick eight-mile cycle through Barra took them to their next ferry to Eriskay then South Uist for their first night stop. On Eriskay they detoured to the bar SS Politician, well known for its association with the film Whisky Galore! and where they were shown a bottle of whisky from the sunken ship. The following day they headed north through the Uists and Benbecula, stopping at the birthplace monument of Flora MacDonald, a bleak, remote spot but one full of atmosphere.
