Overall :

Landscape : 10/10 Barra is from the most beautiful islands I have seen. The route goes around the island. The only places you need to visit apart from the half marathon to visit the full island is Vatersay and the airport
Non Repeating Route : 10/10Only a few meters are being run twice.
Difficulty : 8/10 Virtually no flat parts. Either uphill or downhill. Mile 11 is one to remember. Difficult not to be tempted to walk it
Easy to visit : 5/10 Ferry once a day from Oban. Ferry from Eriskay. There is the airport as well.
Easy to participate : 2/10 200 places and you have to be very fast to register.
Facilities/Organization : 10/10 Really I can not thing of anything negative.
Good for personal best: 4/10 No because of mile 11. The rest is easier than it looks but that part will slow you down a lot.
Will do it again  : yes.
