About North Uist:

North Uist is an island community in the Outer Hebrides, found off Scotland’s northwest coast.

Like most islands in this part of the world, North Uist is rich with prehistoric landmarks and awe-inspiring monuments, most notably the enormous chambered burial cairn of Barpa Langais.

Although there is a high concentration of peat bogs and lochs on North Uist, the coastline is blessed with some beautiful beaches where you can relax with nothing but the sound of birds in the air. The shoreline is also home to many grey seals and, in fact, each year almost 10,000 seal pups are born on the Monach Islands just off the west coast - the largest breeding colony in Europe.

The island’s main port is in Lochmaddy on the northeast coast, just off the A867 road, where you can choose from numerous sailings to the Scottish mainland.
