Isle of Skye
village of Uig is located on Skye's stunning Trotternish peninsular.
We are in a beautiful protected bay. There are
lovely walks around the village taking in waterfalls, woodlands and
cliff-tops. We are lucky to have amazing land and seascapes on our
doorstep including the Fairy Glen which is an unusual miniature
landscape of grassy, cone-shaped hills and the turret
shaped rock called Ewen's castle.
We have good restaurants, a lively bar, hotels, bed and
breakfast accommodation, a campsite, shops, a petrol
station, a pottery, brewery, bike hire, boat trips, ferry service to the
Western Isles and a local and mainland bus service.
Uig hosts lots of wildlife including buzzards, herons,
oyster catchers and a resident sea otter and seal in varied habitats that
include mature woodland, open moors and coasts.
Uig is a great base from which to explore Skye. On the Trotternish peninsula we have the spectacular
rock formations of the Quiraing, the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and the
Trotternish ridge. There are plenty of historic structures including
castles, forts and standing stones. There is a beautiful beach with
The ferry in Uig runs to the Outer Hebrides.
Uig is Norse for a sheltered bay and is often warm and dry when there is
rain further south. The 300-400 people who live
in Uig make their livings from fishing, crofting (usually part-time),
tourism and the ferry. Around the bay are several
crofting townships including Cuil, Rha and Idrgill. The surrounding
townships include Glenconon, Sheader, Earlish, Cuidreach and Glenhinnisdal. The rivers Rha
and Conon flow into the bay through wooded gorges. The
woodland is managed by the Woodland Trust and is one of the few areas of
ancient woodland left in Skye.
