It's easy to get to the Isle of Harris! You have a choice of ferries, you can also fly.
Many journeys involve using more than one mode of transport. Take care when planning your journey – especially if you're intending to catch the last connecting service of the day. Be realistic about how much time you leave to make connections allowing for unexpected delays. Make sure that you have booked well in advance and have your tickets or booking reference to hand.
