Important please read!

If you are arriving by bus (Shuttle or Coach service) you may arrive in Barrington in the evening (6:00 pm - 11:00pm).  This is too late to make a crossing to the island.  Therefore you will need place for the night.  I have provided a list of B&Bs below.  We will make arrangements to pick you up the following day or you will need to take a cab to Shag Harbour from Barrington and meet us at the wharf.
