Bicycle Hire on the Isle of Barra

Hire bikes & advice for families & individuals to explore our island paradise

Welcome to Barra Bike Hire

Based on the magnificent Isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides - the 'Islands on the Edge' as they are often referred to. We are privileged to live in an amazingly beautiful place where every day one feels to be close to, part of and surrounded on all sides by the landscape ... A landscape of hills and moorland, sea and surf and the some of the most fantastic beaches in the world. The island is encircled by a very quiet single-track road, ideal for cycling, with spur roads that give you access to some really wonderful spots to explore. A top quality hire bicycle from Barra Bike Hire is very much the best way to explore our island ‘Barradise’. Read more about the Isle of Barra »

Bike Repairs, Servicing, & Advice

As well as hire bikes we offer a comprehensive bicycle repair and maintenance service. We keep a stock of essential spare parts to keep your bike rolling, and can order in parts should that be required. Being based at the southern end of the 180-mile (292km) cycle route known as the Hebridean Way we are also well placed to offer support and guidance to cyclists visiting the Outer Hebrides who are looking to explore beyond Barra. Do please call or email if we can help in any respect. More repairs & servicing »

Family Run

We are a small but growing business. We originally set up in 2013 / 2014 when we invested in half a dozen rental bikes to provide for guests staying in our self-catering apartment and the self-catering holiday let 'across the road'. At that time bike hire on Barra was difficult to source and at times simply not available. Since then, due to growing demand, we invested in more bicycles and  now have a varied and diverse rental fleet to cater for most needs. Read more about us »

Our clients say...

With a broken dérailleur in Oban (on a Sunday), we thought our long awaited cycling trip was in jeopardy. That was until we contacted Tony at Barra Bike Hire. We explained our problem over the the phone, and Tony arranged to meet us at the ferry wharf. Arriving in picturesque Castlebay, Tony greeted us and soon my bike was on his portable mechanic stand. It didn't take long to realize we had found the right man for the job. Tony sacrificed his Sunday evening (with a planned dinner to attend) to graciously help us out. With a bit of luck, he had the exact part needed, and within an hour we were happily cycling south to Vatersay. You will not find better customers service in Scotland, or even in the entire United Kingdom. Thanks again Tony, we had a wonderful time cycling north to the Butt of Lewis and hope to return to Scotland soon. 5/5
