About

HISTORY

Neil MacEachain's Narrative of the Wanderings of Prince Charles in the Hebrides:

After a detatchment of MacLeod militia from Skye land on the island Neil and the Prince head back for South Uist.

"Next morning at sunrise at the mouth of Loch Eynort , in South-Uist; they had not so much as one mouthful to eat that night of any kind, and having made up a tent of the oars and sail of the boat, he laid himself down upon a kind of a heather bed that was made for him, while Neil stood sentry upon the rock before the tent door the whole night, after he had placed two of the crew whom he could trust most to about a mile off as an advanced guard".

WALK

There is a great woodland walk at the end of the road at North Loch Eynort.
