Barra Islands Outer Hebrides 26th June – 2nd July 2021recording
The meeting will be based on the MV Cuma, a converted fisheries vessel (see www.island-cruising.com) with pickup and setdown at Castlebay, Barra (tbc). We will visit a range of islands and islets around Barra, including some of the islands to the south which have a variety of habitats including machair and moorland. The larger islands have reasonable lists, but have not been recorded in tetrads or monads, and this meeting will provide detailed records for a new flora. Several smaller islands are completely unrecorded. The terrain is generally rough, but there should be a variety of easier and more strenuous options each day. The cost is £865 per person full board, sleeping on the boat, which takes 12 people, so please book early, preferably by the end of February. For further details and to book, contact Paul Smith.
