      Stephanie, thank you for taking the time to leave a message. It’s made me so happy to know that you’re enjoying this post. Have you been to Barra before? This post might be useful: We went to Barra a few years ago and loved it. We’re booked for Barra this autumn but we’ll have to wait and see whether we make it or not. Have a great holiday next year!
