Vatersay Causeway

Connecting two of the southernmost islands in the Outer Hebrides, the Vatersay Causeway connects that island to Barra to the north. Begun in 1989, the causeway is 250m (273 yard) in length, cost some £3.7 million and required 220,000 tonnes of rock. It was fully operational by mid-1991, although this causeway has never been declared officially open.
