Uig, a Haven of Tranquility
While Uig is the largest geographical district on Lewis, it is also the most sparsely populated, so for a break that’s far from the madding crowd, it’s the ideal location. From the Isle of Lewis’ highest peak, Mealasbhal (574m), to the deepest offshore lake in the British Isles, Loch Suaineabhat (67m), and over 20 picture-perfect beaches, there are terrains and landscapes to suit everyone.
For whisky lovers, the Abhainn Dearg Red River Distillery is at Carnish, and is open for tours and tastings; while for history buffs, Uig has a whole host of archaeological sites to explore. Uig Beach itself, for instance, is most famously known as the location of the discovery of the Lewis Chessmen. Now in the Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, replicas with an interpretative display can be viewed in the Uig Heritage Centre in nearby Tuimisgearraidh.
Bird watchers too are amply catered for, with species in the region including the golden eagle, merlins, herons and buzzards, alongside a host of other coastal birds. And the lucky few who venture out in the early mornings may even catch a glimpse of the otters who live up river…
