“I’m the only rocker on the island. I’m in a band called the Lack Pack with my dad. My favourite band is AC/DC. I want to leave the island one day and be in a famous rock band. I have my own style and I’m developing it all the time.”

Sarah Louise MacNeil

: “The Glasgow Herald did a bad article about us, totally dissing Barra. They said we all drink underage. I suppose some of us do but not everybody. After the article came we nearly had the youth club taken off us because they thought we were all drinking.”

Danielle MacLeod

: “I’ve lived here since I was a week old. It’s a brilliant place to live. I’m going to bring my kids up here. There’s not really enough to do but it’s not like there’s was a lot to do in the start and they took it away.”

Karen Taylor & Donnie MacNeil

: “Barra is very small and quiet. I get bored quite a lot of the time. I wish there were places to go and things to see. Here there’s nothing apart from going to the bus stop or the youth club that we have at the community hall.”

: “I’m going to sea to join the Merchant Navy. My Gen (grandfather) did that. In the MN there’s lots of different jobs to do. If you’re a deck officer you can stand on the deck and boss everybody about.”
