Ferries to Lochmaddy, Scotland

Found in the beautiful Outer Hebrides, Lochmaddy on North Uist is a haven for artists and nature lovers alike (otters abound here).

Once you disembark from the ferry that brings you directly to Lochmaddy you will find yourself immediately immersed in the beauty and tranquillity that surrounds you; there are even mountains overlooking the entire village – and island.

For many people, the first stop on their tour of Lochmaddy is Taigh Chearsabhagh. Taigh Chearsabhagh is a museum and community arts centre housing a shop and café. It’s the artistic and cultural hub of the village, and the island of North Uist itself. It’s also part of the Uist Sculpture Trail. This trail is a path that, if followed, will lead you to seven different and fascinating sculptures by seven different artists.

Although today Lochmaddy is a serene and picturesque village, its first mention in history describes it as being full of ‘piracie and murder’! This is where pirates used to congregate before setting sail, and it was an ideal hiding place for fugitives. Other history on the island dates back to prehistoric times, and it’s possible to visit the Barpa Langais, an enormous burial cairn, and Na Fir Bhreige, three huge stones whose name means ‘the three false men’.
