Heading to Uig ferry tomorrow, and across to Tarbert. Looking to gently tour Harris, Lewis and then down to North South Uist and back across to Oban.

Any ideas on what to see, or avoid appreciated. Taking into account van size is 7.3m.

Am Politician Pub across the causeway on Eriskay. SS Politician sank with the Whisky .... Whisky galore film. Beautiful Beach too and shower for 1 quid in ferry Hut. Can you fit in Barra by any chance ? Castlebay and beach airport plus you can also drive over to Vatersay ? Free wifi at airport but soon 100% Calmac boats will be wifi if not already. Don'the forget to Otter spot on way to Berneray and at Lochmaddy (sure there'llll be other opportunities as well). Free sockets for charging phones etc in ferry Hut at Berneray (and on boats take yur plug on board) in case you need a top up.
HTH😊
