"The superb beaches of western Berneray are unparalleled in Scotland."
And they're right. Here's the location; three miles of unspoilt, unpolluted beach:
There's plenty of places for the media to stay on Berneray and in the Uists (there's usually media here for some programme or other much of the time anyway). Accommodation would need to be built for the competitors, but that would solve the problem with lack of housing in the area (joined-up). Some other facilities that can be used are already here e.g. the community hall:
It's a safe environment; there's an airport (Balivanich) less than 40 miles away which takes smaller planes, and this would provide an opportunity (joined-up again) for the runway to be upgraded to take international flights.
The world seeing a hebridean beach on TV (or, more likely by then, Internet-based media) would raise the profile of the archipelago; show what it is really like; encourage tourism; encourage people to move here (sustaining communities); and show that these are not isolationist islands (and other negative stereotypes),
An event such as this would be the perfect showcase for the Outer Hebrides and its beaches to the world. And why not - doesn't the Outer Hebrides have the organisation and capability to hold just one event, in an international showcase that isn't happening for another seven years?
Afterthought - what is the Gaelic for "Beach Volleyball"? Think about it - making the event bilingual through all media would be the greatest international promotion of Gaelic ever.
