There is something magical about the Uists and its environment.
Maybe it's the sense of romance as you walk along the many white sand beaches or paddle by the edge of a turquoise ocean.
Could it be the sense of adventure you feel as you view endless horizons that beckon to be explored? Whatever it is that makes the Uists feel so special, these islands will more than satisfy your wanderlust.
Here you will find the oldest rocks in the world, dating back more than 3000 million years, ancient relics scoured by the last ice age more than 10,000 years ago.
The environment of the Uists has a rich bio-diversity where nature thrives on land, the shorelines and offshore islands. With 3 nature reserves and the Lochmaddy Special Area of conservation, to name but a few, there is plenty of wildlife to see and enjoy.
The surrounding Atlantic and the Minch are home to many migrating whales and dolphins which feed in these rich waters during the summer, and where the fisherman catches lobster, prawn and crab for the table and foreign markets of Europe.
Each island in the Uists has its own distinctive character which shapes the nature of the people, animals and plants that make it their home, but every island shares the quality and magic that makes the Uists such a wonderful place to visit.
We hope you enjoy your stay.
