Bharpa Langass & Pobull Fhinn

Outer Hebrides

A waymarked path from a car park off the A867, 6 miles southwest of Lochmaddy, leads to the chambered Neolithic burial tomb of Bharpa Langass and the stone circle of Pobull Fhinn (Finn’s People); both are reckoned to be around 5000 years old. There are lovely views over the loch, where you may be able to spot seals and otters.
