Sandray

 

This small, uninhabited, island, rising to a height of 171metres, lies between Vatersay and Pabbay some 8 kilometres to the south of Barra. There are several beautiful beaches on the island and two hills that form the backbone. The eastern hill offering a great ridge and gnarly rock outcrops including a summit ‘wart’. The biggest beaches lie on the east side, one to the north and one to the south. These areas offer the best campsites with some fresh water. Better fresh water can be had on the south coast. There are no huge crags on this island but it does offer a few smaller ones of particularly immaculate rock. These are concentrated on the west coast towards the south west tip with a few smaller ones on the south coast.
