Pabbay an oval island in the Sound of Harris some 7 miles due west from Leverburgh while it may be reached by boat once supported nearly 400 people and had probably the ﬁrst ‘industry' in the area, the production of whisky. But the people, and the whisky gave way to sheep, and now it is one farm, there are also some red deer.
Just north of Pabbay is the tiny island of Shillay, an important breeding ground for the grey Atlantic seal where large numbers, with their calves, may be seen in September and October.
The more sheltered and attractive islands ofEnsay and Killegray, just off Harris, have been visited
several times by the Royal Family while on passage in the former royal yacht to their summer holiday at Balmoral.
