Benbecula - Passing Through

Benbecula is a small island between islands. The North Ford connects it to North Uist, and South Ford connects to South Uist. Now that modern causeways cross the fords, travellers no longer have to wait for low tide or take a boat from Benbecula. At first sight, the island is a place between more interesting ones.

This would be unfair. Benbecula has silver sands as fine as any in the Uists, as well as the Uists largest village, Balivanich. The fords also look like great places to watch for wildlife - but we didn't hang around to find out. We were just passing through.
