A2: Migration: Causes, Streams and Impacts (iv)
  1. Small-scale case study of OUT-MIGRATION: Barra & Vatersay
    1. Factfile
      1. Located on Outer Hebrides, off the West coast of Scotland
        1. Has a mountainous centre - most settlements are found along the coast
          1. Total pop. of 1172
            1. Remote Island - transport links are few
              1. Flights from Glasgow
                1. 5 hour ferry from Oban
                  1. 40 min crossing from Eriskay to Barra
                  2. Main road around coast - 12km
                    1. An airport on north of island - beach serves as a runway
                    2. Implications on Service Provision
                      1. Small pop. - services are limited
                        1. Most services are low order + concentrated in Castlebay - "capital"
                          1. A primary school
                            1. 3 small hotels
                              1. convenience store

                                    1. doctors and dentist but no hospital
                                    2. Gov. funding established the Barra community co-operative which setup a shop in Castlebay
                                    3. Economic Activity
                                      1. Few opps. for economically active age groups
                                        1. Tourism generates seasonal jobs
                                          1. Traditional opps. e.g. crofting + fishing employ an ever decreasing number of people
                                            1. Jan>June 2001 unemployment fell in Barra from 5 - 3.4% due to the building of the Eroskay causeway Unemployment grew again after it was completed.
                                              1. Gross weekly earnings are 12% lower then the Scottish average, whilst costs of fuel, food and transport can be up to 20% higher than the mainland

                                              2. Social Stability
                                                1. Small working pop. and those who left are unlikely to return with their families
                                                  1. Many 15+ year olds will leave when they reach working age
                                                  2. European Commission > critical threshold pop. of 4-5 1000 required for the island to be sustainable
