Situated on the western shore of the Trotternish peninsula, this spectacular coastal town and ferry terminal offers sea-crossings to the Isle of Harris. The magic of Scotland is symbolised in the nearby Faerie Glen which contains a stone circle.

North of Uig is the fascinating village of Kilmuir which plays host to the must-see Museum of Island life, housed in a series of thatched cottages. Kilmuir is also the burial place of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s serving woman Flora McDonald. Beyond the village are the romantic ruins of Duntulum Castle, built by the McDonald clan on the site of an old Celtic fort.

The islands of Canna, Rum, Eigg and Muck are usually reached by the ferry the MV Lochnevis which operates a pattern of services from Mallaig calling at two, three or all four of the islands on six days of the week.
