Great Bernera-  

Although it is considered to be part of the Isle of Lewis, Great Bernera is actually an island in its own right. Since 1953 Bernera has been connected to mainland Lewis by a road bridge. This road bridge is one of the few bridges crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Nevertheless, Bernera is typical of a small island community (population of approx. 300) with a strong and passionate community spirit.

Bernera's landscape is low and rolling, dotted with lochs and varied shores on to the sea. It is famous for its expansive white sandy beach at Bosta, with a reconstructed Iron Age house alongside.
