Uig Bay, Skye, Scotland

Uig Bay, Skye, Scotland.

This evening, I am reporting on Uig and Uig Bay which are located on the N.W. tip of the Isle of Skye in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides.

The name Uig translates from Gaelic and means ‘bay’.

Uig is primarily a ferry port providing important links to Lochmaddy and Tarbert in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides. Image of a ferry is provided below.

In addition to its port function, Uig has a working pottery and craft brewery. There is also a shop, bar with restaurant and accommodation for travellers.

For visitors touring the island, Uig is well positioned as a refreshment stop being relatively close to the Quiraing and Fairy Glen.
