WHO CAN WRITE ME ABOUT THE SCOTTISH ISLAND OF BARRA IN SCOTLAND ?
THE ONE WITH THE MOST IMFORMATION WILL GET THE BEST ANSWER!!!
Barra is located in Outer Hebrides
Gaelic name About this sound Barraigh, Eilean Bharraigh (help·info)
Norse name Barr-oy
Meaning of name Barr's island, after St Barr
Area 5,875 hectares (22.7 sq mi)
Main settlement Castlebay
Island group Uists and Barra
The island of Barra (Scottish Gaelic: Barraigh, Eilean Bharraigh, pronounced [ˈparˠaj, ˈelan ˈvarˠaj]) is a predominantly Gaelic-speaking island, and apart from the adjacent island of Vatersay, to which it is connected by a causeway, is the southernmost inhabited island of the Outer Hebrides (Na h-Eileanan Siar) in Scotland.
The 2001 census showed that the resident population was 1,078 (1,172 including Vatersay). The area of Barra is roughly 60 square kilometres (23 sq mi), the main village being Castlebay (Bàgh a' Chaisteil).
The west of the island has white sandy beaches backed by shell-sand, machair and the east has numerous rocky inlets.
Kisimul Castle at Castlebay is located on a rock in the bay, so giving the village its name. A smaller castle can be found in the middle of Loch St Clare on the west side of the Island in Tangasdale.
The highest elevation on the island is Heaval, halfway up which is "Our Lady of the Sea" a prominent white marble statue of the Madonna and Child which was erected in during the [Marian year] of 1956.
Other places of interest on the island include a ruined church and museum at Cille Bharra, a number of Iron Age brochs such as those at Dùn Chuidhir and An Dùn Bàn and a range of other Iron Age and later structures which have recently been excavated and recorded.
Barrafest generally takes place on the last full weekend of July. Barrafest 2012 will take place on Friday 27 July, and Saturday 28 July.
The 1949 Ealing Studios comedy Whisky Galore! was filmed on Barra. The film is based on the novel Whisky Galore by Sir Compton Mackenzie, itself a fictionalised telling of the story of the SS Politician, which ran aground with a cargo of some 50,000 cases of whisky on board in 1941. Mackenzie, who lived near the airport and died in 1972, is buried in a grave marked by a simple cross at Cille Bharra cemetery, which is situated a little way up the hillside overlooking Eoligarry jetty. The sequel movie Rockets Galore! was also filmed in and around the island.
Barra was also featured on the recent Channel 5 programme "Extraordinary people: The Boy Who Lived Before", where a young boy named Cameron, who lived in Glasgow, had memories of a past life on the island. In early 2011 the island was one of those featured in the new series of An Island Parish.
In 2008 the Barra RNLI Life Boat, Edna Windsor was featured on a series of stamps.The first class stamp shows the 17 metres (56 ft) Severn class lifeboat in action in the Sound of Berneray 20 kilometres (12 mi) south west of Barra in 3.5 metres (11 ft) swell with 30 kilometres per hour (16 kn) of wind.
Barra's tiny airport, near Northbay, uses the beach called An Tràigh Mhòr (English: The Big Beach) as a runway. Planes can only land and take off at low tide meaning that the timetable varies. Voted the world's most stunning landing spot, Barra's airport is the only airport in the world to have scheduled flights landing on a beach. The aircraft currently in operation on Barra is the de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter, flown by Loganair on services to Glasgow and Benbecula from where connections to Stornoway are also available. There are usually flights every day of the week in the summer. The beach is also a source of cockles.
Ferries to Oban, Lochboisdale, Tiree and Eriskay are run by Caledonian MacBrayne. Castlebay is the main port from which ferries sail to Oban on the Scottish mainland, Tiree and Lochboisdale (Loch Baghasdail) in South Uist. The mainland crossing takes about 5 hours. A vehicular ferry travels between Ardmore (An Àird Mhòr) and Ceann a' Gharaidh in Eriskay (Èirisgeigh). The crossing takes around 40 minutes.
Industry & tourism
The fish factory, Barratlantic, in Northbay is a major contributor to the island's economy and the Hebridean Toffee Factory in Castlebay is one of the few manufacturers on Barra.
Tourism provides the main income for the majority of islanders, the high season lasting from May to September. Thousands of people visit the island every year, the busiest times being during Fèis Bharraigh & BarraFest in July. Boat trips to the neighbouring island of Mingulay are available during the summer season and island hopping plane trips are also available.

What are some romance animes?
Something that is along the lines like Peach Girl, Bokura Ga Ita, Lovely Complex, Skip Beat etc. Preferably if it's english dubbed and completed series though...it's okay if it does has english subtitles. Nothing with fantasy...though.
I've already seen the above mention and Fruits Baskets and Ouran High School Host Club. I'm looking for more suggestions! TV rating doesn't matter to me.
Here you go.. A huge list of Romantic Comedy Anime/Movies
Zero No Tsukaima Season 1 to Season 3 - I recommend ya this if you're into Shakugan no Shana and Toradora! They will be probably releasing Season 4 in 2012, As the humor says
Shakugan No Shana Season 1 to Season 2 - No kissing scenes yet, but there's quite sweet moments going on around here, Season 3 will be released in October 2011
Summer Wars - A Sci Fi --MOVIE--, made by the producer of Digimon. Yeah, it is Romance and it's quite dramatic at the climax of the story, though at the end, it'll make you giggle!
Seto No Hanayome - Mhm... Quite a Very Romantic Story, Though I've never seen them have a kissing scene. A very interesting Anime it is.
Hanbun No Tsuki ga Noboru Sora - Another Romantic Anime --MOVIE--. Though it has a lot of Dramatic moments in it where in you're almost gonna cry. I recommend you to watch this.
Okami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi - Are you into Toradora? Perhaps you watch this weird, cool *** anime. The main heroine here resembles Taiga from Toradora. There's quite a lot of features in this anime, quite romantic but not very satisfying at the end.
Infinite Stratos - Uh yeah, Somehow another Fictional story. Though I haven't really minded watching this but yeah, Try watching it. It's a Romantic Comedy anime.
Nogizaka Haruka No Himitsu - It'll teach you not to judge a semi perfect book by it's cover. Teached me quite a few lessons and guess what, It worked! I've admired this mysterious lady so much, since she's pretty, intelligent and most of all, really suits it for me. But behind it, I never knew she liked MMORPG games so much and anime
Tayutama Kiss on my Deity - You're gonna love this :P. I'm quite speechless but yeah, I recommend you to watch it! This is a Romantic Comedy Anime.
Kanokon - A bit of an ecchi but yeah, It's quite Romantic in some ways.
Mayoi Neko Overrun! - A very weird heroine contains in this anime, though I like her so much <3. I recommend you to watch this :P. Romantic Comedy anime.
Otome Yokai Zakuro - Lool, this is a good anime but it doesnt satisfy me in some way, It really is a Romantic Comedy anime and the protagonist here resembles someone from Ouran Highschool Host Club lol
Mamoru-kun ni Megami - 24-26 episode anime. Quite very romantic from the first Episode. This sure is romantic. Though, I recommend you to watch this!
Rosario + Vampire - Meh, I haven't finished it yet but yeah, try to give it a shot. It's going good so far for me. Romantic Comedy Anime
Aria The Scarlett Ammo - Some random cool Anime. The anime season has just been recently finished. What makes it more cooler is because it's a Slice of Life, Action, Romantic comedy anime.
Maid Sama – I’m not really into this but yeah, it’s quite romantic in some weird unique way, show offs. Gives you giggles. And also contains 25 episodes. There’s a similar anime series like this. Which is called Special A
Special A – As mentioned earlier, up for Maid Sama? Then try watching this! It’s quite good also. Very romantic at the end.
So yeah, basically. This list that I will be giving is all something about Romance. So yeah, enjoy!
