Buses

Visitors wishing to explore the Outer Hebrides by public transport can take advantage of a range of bus routes in the Western Isles.

Buses in the Outer Hebrides run during the day from Monday to Saturday. Some buses in the principal settlement of Stornoway operate into the evening.

If you are arriving by ferry or aeroplane, you will normally be able to access onward Outer Hebrides bus travel to your destination as timetables are generally tailored to ensure that arriving visitors are accounted for, however travellers are advised to check Western Isles bus timetables in advance of arrival.

Travelling by bus in the Outer Hebrides is inexpensive, however visitors are asked to check all bus timetables for the Western Isles carefully before embarking on a bus journey as some services do not operate every day and certain sections on some Outer Hebrides bus routes are covered on a request only basis (meaning that the driver needs to be informed of passengers intended destinations in advance.

Western Isles bus passengers using the service for days out are also advised to check return journey pick up points and timetables with their driver on arrival to avoid confusion.

For independent travellers it is possible to undertake an end to end island hopping holiday in the Outer Hebrides using Western Isles buses as the main form of transport – following the “Overland Route” from Lewis to Barra (or vice versa)
