Vatersay is the westernmost permanently inhabited place in Scotland. It is linked to the larger neighbouring island of Barra by a causeway that was completed in 1991. Vatersay is also linked at low tide to the small island of Uineasan. The highest point is Heishival Mor at 190m. From there the views out to The Minch, nearby Barra and south to Mingulay are stunning.
Vatersay was a quick stop on our way from Mingulay back north to Skye. The chance of topping this remote islands was too much to miss. Anchored in the wide and open Vatersay bay we scuttled up Heishival Mor in double quick time. In only 40 minutes of so we were back down to our yacht Pegasus in the bay. So, not much to say but will have to go back.
