The Isle of North Uist is in the centre of the group of Islands in the Outer Hebrides. North Uist is a landscape of fresh and salt water lochs bordered on its western side by miles of sandy beaches, and cultivated crofts. Very popular with walkers, bird watchers, motor homers and cyclists alike. On the west side of the island the road follows the machair, (the fertile coastal grassland bordering the sand dunes), whilst the eastern side is mainly water. This area is a fisherman’s and bird watchers paradise. The island was recently featured in the BBC TV program Monty Halls’ Great Hebridean Escape.
