South Uist – East side
The East Side of South Uist is the perfect place to explore, with a wide range of walks and routes providing the perfect opportunity to uncover all that area has to offer.
Locheynort, Lochboisdale, South Lochboisdale, and Lasiger all provide great starts to your East North Uist journey of discovery with a range of Hebridean highlights on offer within easy reach of each location.
Challenge yourself with hillwalk on Hecla, Beinn Corrodale and Beinn Mhor - whose summits offer breathtaking panoramas over the inlets and bays that characterise the island’s east coast , or climb to the top of Ben Kenneth and look out over Lochboisdale.
From Lochboisdale, which also serves as the island’s ferry terminus, take the circular path via Laisger before returning to your starting point where you can find all your creature comforts including shops, banking, post office and cafe – as well as a community garden and kids play park. There are regular sailings from here to and from Castlebay on Barra or Oban on the mainland.
Alternatively head for South Lochboisdale with its traditional thatched cottages providing an appealing aesthetic that is only enhanced by the nearby Listening Place a Road Ends project sculpture that forms part of the Uist Sculpture Trail.
This intriguing installation by Valerie Pragnell celebrates the links between the area’s crofting and lyrical traditions, with verses from celebrated local poets engraved in the stone built structure which also incorporates tractor seats for visitors to stop and listen to the story of the land.
