South Uist is a special island, and if you want to have a peaceful and relaxing holiday, then this is the place to be. With miles and miles of empty beaches and machair to the west, quiet roads and an eastern wilderness of hills and moorland, the feeling of space from the wide open skies will relax, rejuvenate and feed your soul.
The Gaelic language and Culture thrives here unlike any other hebridean island. You will hear folk chatting in Gaelic in shops, and in the summer months there are all sorts of local ceilidhs and events that welcome visitors to come along and join in the fun.
The island has a strong and proud musical tradition, with many young accomplished players of both the Highland Bagpipe and Accordian and fantastic singers of traditional Gaelic songs. If possible, try and make it to a ceilidh. where all of the above is on show as well as some raucous dancing!
