Baleshare Causeway

A single-lane causeway over the shallow channel between the islands of Baleshare and North Uist, the Baleshare Causeway is one of a network of bridges and causeways which connect the islands in the Outer Hebrides. Built in 1962, this 350m (382 yard) causeway was constructed by William Tawse Ltd for Inverness-shire County Council, with Sir Alexander Gibb acting as consulting engineers. The link has undoubtedly helped maintain a population on Baleshare when so many of the other smaller Hebridean islands have become uninhabited.
