Walking is probably the most popular. Although mainly flat, the terrain of North Uist is deceiving with a good variety of hill, coastal, moor & hill walks. On the east side, there is almost as much water as land! Take the opportunity to ascend the Lees above Lochmaddy and look down on the stunning lace-work of lochans and moor – there is nowhere else like it in the UK! On the west side the beautiful white sand beaches stretch for miles and meet the moors at The Machair – a fertile area, often traditionally farmed and with a unique ecosystem and a profusion of wild-flowers in spring and summer.
Wherever you go you will be infused with the peace and tranquillity of this unspoilt place.
