Barra Island Lifeboat Station
For nearly 75 years, an all-weather lifeboat has launched from Castlebay on the Outer Hebrides island, often into ‘diabolical’ seas (see 1979). Today the station operates the largest class of lifeboat, a Severn class.
Latest lifeboat launch
While our lifeboat stations remain operational and are continuing to launch to those at peril at sea, they are not currently open to visitors.
