We aim to keep our bike hire prices as competetive as possible. For 2022 we have left our standard bike hire fees the same as 2020/21 fees. The e-bike hire fee has had to go up a little for next season ...... need to cover running costs.
We offer full day hires and half day hire periods. A half day is up to 4 hrs in duration and is generally regarded as a 'morning session' or an 'afternoon session'. [I.e. 9.30am - 1.30pm or 2.00pm - 6.00pm].
For multiple day hires the hire rate for each day after your first day decreases.

If you are requesting full day and multi day bike hires we offer a delivery and pick up service to wherever you are staying on the Isle of Barra. There will be a nominal cost to cover time and fuel. In many cases during busy times, we may deliver your bikes the evening before the day of hire or very early in the morning so that you can get on your bike adventure as early as you like on your actual hire day(s). Note delivery is available only when our transport is on Barra. We will advise on availability on bike hire booking.
For part-day hires we normally ask customers to collect from our bike hire outlet at the Buth Bharraigh (Barra Community Shop) in Castlebay. Find us at the bottom of the steps that lead up to the main entrance of The Castlebay Hotel.
