[edit] Information

Kerry and Kirsty: Turbines to Lewis. Sisters Kerry and Kirsty MacPhee embark on a mountain bike trip through the Western Isles. Kerry is the first Hebridean woman to compete at the Commonwealth Games, and younger sister Kirsty is hot on her heels. Despite hailing from the islands, the girls know little about mountain biking there. 1. Aisgerbheinn The sisters make their way across the Vatersay causeway to Barra, cycling north with a stop for lunch at Barra airport on Tràigh Mhòr. A ferry ride takes them to Eriskay, where family and friends accompany them home to South Uist. Rain and high winds set in as they cycle through South Uist on machair tracks and corn fields before tackling the steep ascent of Aisgerbheinn. In North Uist, they discover white beaches and catch a glimpse of the Monach Isles before crossing over to the tidal island of Vallay. Their final stop is Berneray at a converted black house turned hostel. 2. Cliseam They experience the tracks and trails of mountainous Harris, and the weather and terrain on the Cliseam push Kirsty to her limit. 3. Uig Peninsula The girls are in Lewis. Starting at high speed, they take a rib through the sound of Scarp before battling gales and rain as they cycle through the hills of the Uig peninsula. They carry on up the west coast, where the long ascents begin to take their toll on already tired legs. Sunshine greets them at the Callanish stones, and they stop for some sustenance. Their strength restored, they carry on through Lewis, crossing the Barvas Moor to the east coast. Flooded bogs and rough terrain stop them in their tracks, and the girls have to retrace their route back to the west coast before reaching their final destination, the lighthouse at the Butt of Ness.
