Berneray is a small island in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. Berneray is the only populated island in the sound of Harris apart from Boreray with just one person living on the island. Berneray has an area of about 10 square kilometres in total. Berneray is still one of the many calm and unspoilt islands due to lack of industrialisation and settlement.

There is a free local authority car park just 10 metres from the terminal. The port is unattended however there is a waiting room which can seat up to 24 people. The nearest shops and cash machines are located in the town centre, which is just 300 metres from the ferry terminal.
Berneray's latitude is very much similar to the Scandinavian latitude where summer months have exceptionally long days and tend to be warmer, warm air flows through Berneray due to its location and temperature rarely goes below freezing.
