Located in the Sound of Harris and linked via a causeway from North Uist or a ferry to Leverburgh/Harris. Berneray is famed for its tranquillity and abundance of birdlife and wildlife. It has numerous beautiful sandy beaches to enjoy. It has a busy tourist trade and Ty Cymro is in the perfect location to be suited as a family home or a business. The island has three hotels, a community centre, a bistro/general store, a local shop/post office and a primary school. There is a fortnightly doctors surgery. Berneray is only 11 miles from the ferry terminal at Lochmaddy and 30 miles from the airport at Balivanich.

From Lochmaddy Ferry Terminal take the only road out of the village. At the junction take the right hand turn signposted Berneray and Sound of Harris Ferry. Follow this road for about four miles until you see a further sign turn right again. In about three miles you come to Port nan Long turn right again as before and in about two miles turn left over the cattle grid, again signed as before. Go over the causeway, past the ferry and continue until you come to a T junction. Turn right signed Borve. Follow this road through the village (past the harbour and Post Office) and after two miles take the right hand turn, up a small incline, and continue until you reach the end of the road. Ty Cymro is the last property on the right (the one closest to the sea) in front of the Old School House.
