There are plans to create a virtual tour of the seabed of the Sound of Barra in order to ascertain whether it should become an area of special conservation. There is disquiet in some quarters as to whether fishing could become restricted by legislation protecting the environment. The image above is of the old jetty at Eoligarry at the north end of Barra. A passenger service used to operate to South Uist before the building of the causeway to Eriskay and the establishment of a vehicular ferry from there to Barra. The disused quay is a symbol of changing trends which may, in this case, affect the sea-bed.
