South Uist


    South Uist is a relatively large island lying between Barra and Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides.

    The east side of South Uist is mountainous, the highest point being 2034ft Beinn Mhor. The west is characterised by some of the best beaches anywhere - a long line of sandy stretches backed by dunes and flower-filled machair.

    On the island you will find the oldest golf course in the Outer Hebrides at Askernish - with stunning views to be enjoyed while playing a round on the course.

    Don't miss a visit to the island's main settlement, and port, Lochboisdale on the east coast. It is the main gateway to South Uist, so on the way look out for the island of Calvay which is home to an automatic lighthouse and the remains of a castle from the 1200s.
