Lochboisdale is the ideal port of entry for visitors to the Hebrides, and a stunning location to enjoy the recreational and sailing facilities. Around Lochboisdale you can cruise the Minch and the more sheltered east coast of South Uist as well as the more open west side.

Mooring Licences are available for day visiting, monthly and seasonal berths.

Car and Bike Hire are available nearby, giving access to local attractions including Askernish Golf Course and the Kildonan Museum and craft centre. Fishing, wildlife walks and archaeological visits provide popular local activities. Visit www.visitouterhebrides.co.uk/see-and-do  for contact details.

Local musicians often play at the Lochboisdale Hotel, which also provides meals and shower and laundry services for sailors. You can’t miss the pink roofed Lochboisdale Post Office café which has home baking, gifts and souvenirs. The local shops are happy to deliver groceries to the quayside.

Whether arriving after a day’s sail or by plane from Glasgow and Inverness for berthed boats, Lochboisdale harbour makes the pristine waters of the Minch and the Atlantic accessible for a weekend getaway.
