The cemetery at Barvas can be reached by car from the A857 road to Ness. About half a mile north of the village a sign for Cladh Bharabhais points to the graveyard, which is half a mile from the main road. Carparking is provided - please close any gates behind you.

The cemetery is located on gently sloping dunes; the oldest part is strewn with broken stones which can make walking difficult if the grass is uncut.
