Uig, a ferry port and useful tour refreshment stop on Isle of Skye, Scotland

                                         (Above image is a capture of Uig with ferry boat.)

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 which lie off the country's west coast.

The name has morphed from Old Norse into Gaelic and translates as ‘bay’.

Uig is primarily a ferry port providing important links to Lochmaddy and Tarbert in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides. Images of the ferries can be seen in this post.

 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 at about the half-way mark of a one -day tour of Skye. About five minutes away is the Fairy Glen whilst further on (about one hour) is Dunvegan Castle.
