South Uist is a stunningly beautiful island of crystal clear waters with white powder beaches to the west and heather uplands dominated by Beinn Mhor to the east. The 20 miles of machair that runs alongside the sand dunes provides a marvellous habitat for the rare Corncrake, and Golden Eagles, Red Grouse and Red Deer can be seen on the mountains slopes to the east.
The hidden gem of the Outer Hebrides
South Uist can be reached by ferry from Mallaig in Summer or Oban in Winter, or via North Uist from Tarbert (Harris) or Uig (Skye).
You can also fly to Benbecula from Stornoway, or Glasgow which has worldwide connections - you're never too far to come and stay!
