About this location

The Hebrides region

Uig is on the Atlantic West Coast of the Hebridean Island of Lewis. An unspoilt area of quiet crofting villages, where visitors are welcome. Steeped in history and mystery, it is where the famous Lewis Chessmen were discovered. The Brahan Seer was born and Vikings settled.

There is a small fishing harbour, you can go on sea safaris, whale and dolphin spotting, or take a trip to the remote isle of Saint Kilda.

There is a local museum, restaurant and cafe's. Uig Carnival is an annual celebration for locals and visitors alike. Abhainn Dearg Distillery, the only Outer Hebridean distillery is located in Uig, a must for whisky enthusiasts.

It is an ideal base to discover other Hebridean Islands. Bernera isn't far away, or take a drive down to Harris and Scalpay. There's the Callanish Stones, The Brock and a plethora of archeological sites to visit. Need some retail therapy, visit the main town of Stornoway, all this and still be home for tea!

A community shop offers all you need to stock up on essentials, call in for coffee, or even leave your laundry. Contact them direct and they will stock up the cottage in advance of your arrival!


From early spring into late summer Uig is a carpet of colour that even the sheep are hard pressed to crop. Uig is home to Sea and Golden Eagles as well as many other species of rare birds. Corncrakes are still to be found in Uig, their grating call far removed from the song of the Skylarks that soar high overhead. Red Deer, Otters and Seals are commonplace and guided tours are available if you fancy a bit of wildlife spotting.

Uig is traditionally a crofting area where villages tend their sheep, fish and still weave Tweed. Although known as Harris Tweed, this famous cloth is weaved on crofts throughout the islands. Weaving demonstrations are available.

The beaches on Uig are famous for their beauty, turquoise waves crashing against miles of white sand, unspoilt, often empty, timeless and waiting for you.

"Excellent cottage and fabulous location"

Arrived just after the rain and the sun came out making the colours spectacular. The cottage was about 10 yards above the perfect beach (Cliff Bay). It was really comfortable and well-equipped. Never … More

So please you enjoyed your stay.

"A small corner of paradise"

The cottage is set in an idylic quiet spot off the 'main' road, with views to die for. Walk through the gate in the garden and you're on the white beach, surrounded by cliffs. All day could be spent watching the waves roll in, and the surfers in action on a breezy day!
The cottage is a dream, clean, tidy with lovely decor, and absolutely everything you could possibly need is provided. The central heating was easy to operate, and we were very warm and cosy. The beach and sea can be seen from the dining table, so eating in was perfect, there certainly weren't many eating places in the vacinity! The local shop was less than 10 mins away. Wi-fi there for a small fee!
Before we arrived, we did a 'big' shop at Tesco in Stornoway, so would recommend that.
Some basic food was provided which was a nice touch.
Plenty of crockery , cutlery and cooking equipment, and dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier.
Plenty of places to visit in the area, Bosta Beach on Bernera is amazing, Callanish stones, and the broch at Carloway, also the Blackhouses, and the Norse Mill and Kiln and up to the Butt of Lewis.
If weather permits, a nice decking area to sit on, and bench on the lawn
Plenty of lovely walks near to the cottage, especially behind the cottage looking down on to the beautiful coastline and turquoise water.
This was our dream holiday cottage, and we will be returning next year.

So pleased you had a great time.
