Description

From Daliburgh the route remains on the main road and then at Bornish the route once again turns west towards the machair through the vilage of Stoneybridge and rejoins the main road at Peninerine. The route then follows the main road across the causeway to Benbecula and follows the stunning and very flat west coast of Benbecula, through the main administrative centre of Balivanich and then over the causeway to Grimsay. The route from the causeway at Grimsay follows the main road to Clachan, North Uist.
