North Uist has a fascinating history and many signs of a rich heritage dating back thousands of years – a blend of Gaelic and Norse influences. Ancient Brochs and Cairns are too numerous to name, whilst the 13th century Teampull na Trionaid at Carinish is a prime site for those interested in the growth of Christianity in the islands. Many thatched cottages remain today and the Gaelic tongue is commonplace, a testament to island traditions and values. Scenery and relaxation are the order of the day for many visitors, beautiful unspoilt sandy beaches, rocky coves and dramatic headlands setting the scene.
The island is a favourite with both the naturalists and ornithologist alike. It is host to a large red deer herd and otters amongst many animals and boasts an important RSPB reserve at Balranald. There are few areas where birdwatchers can see so many prestigious species in one place, such as the rare corncrake, golden eagle, great northern diver and long tailed skua.
The island is most definitely a paradise for fly fishers with countless hill lochs where guests can pursue trout, sea-trout and salmon in complete solitude if they so desire. Sea angling is another popular alternative.
