Directions

Road Directions

This is an area of striking contrasts. The colourful flowery machair grassland on the Atlantic coast gradually gives way to the moorland of the interior with the persistent rasping call of the corncrake. Quiet lochans provide a haven for the distinctive plants and birds of the Uists.

As well as its SSSI status, Loch Druidibeg is also a Special Protection Area and a Special Area of Conservation. Look out for herons, graylag geese, golden eagles and peregrines.

The best time to visit is between May and June for breeding wildfowl, waders and corncrakes, and July for flowers.
