Ferries to Uig, Scotland

Uig (Norse for ‘sheltered bay’) has an impressive position; part of Skye (Uig is the largest settlement on Trotternish, the northernmost peninsula of Skye) and yet also the gateway to the Western Isles, there are ferries here that will take you to Lochmaddy, Uist, and Tarbert.

The natural bay of Uig makes for the perfect harbour – and it looks gorgeous too.

The port is the busiest area in Uig, and the rest of the village is much more tranquil. Consisting of two pubs, two churches, two shops, a brewery, a petrol station and café, and a pottery, Uig is small but perfectly formed.

Uig Pottery is open to visitors, and from here you can purchase one of a kind pots and trinkets made before your eyes.

Wandering on Uig is encouraged. There are many footpaths and circular routes and it is difficult to get lost, but exciting and exhilarating to breathe in some of the freshest air there is. Whilst exploring, be on the look out for Captain Fraser’s Folly, a circular tower that looks like a castle. Other things to spot are the standing stones, forts, castle, and the ancient rock formations known as the Quiraing, the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, and the Trotternish Ridge. On the beach there are dinosaur footprints to find!
