A888 (Barra Ring Road)

A888 (Barra Ring Road) is a 13 mile sealed one-way circular drive in Barra, an island in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.

The road is asphalted. It is very narrow in some sections. There is little room for error on this road. The journey forms a circular road around the Island and is the only classified road on the island. The road is single-track with passing places and it does not take much more than half an hour to travel along.

The journey offers an exhilarating driving experience, with superb views. The island's circular main road gives relatively easy access to almost all parts of the island. It can be joined at any point. The highest point of the road, at 100m above the sea level, is located a kilometre north-east of Castlebay. The 13 mile road encircling much of this beautiful island makes it easy to explore. The shoreline has rocky bays and stunning beaches surrounding a largely inaccessible and mountainous interior.
