Isle of Skye
Highlands and Islands
The Uig Lodge has been fully refurbished before it re-opened in April 2016. It is situated just behind the Uig Hotel and offers room only accommodation breakfast is available at the hotel and all the other hotel facilities are open to residents of Uig Lodge.
The lodge is situated just behind the Uig Hotel and the rooms in it enjoy spectacular views across Uig bay to the Ascrib Isles and Waternish beyond. The daily ferry service to both Harris and North Uist leaves from the bay. The ferry terminal is just three minutes drive from the Uig Lodge.
There are opportunities for sightseeing watching wildlife walking fishing or just taking it easy in a corner of Scotland where life seems to move at an easier pace! It is little known that during summer months the Ascrib Isles in Uig bay becomes home to hundreds of puffins. Taking a trip to see them will often include close encounters with whales dolphins and even the mighty basking shark. The restaurant at The Uig Hotel uses locally sourced ingredients wherever possible it is known for its excellent freshly cooked seafood.
To avoid disappointment tables for dinner should be reserved in advance. The Uig Hotel has a lounge bar with sun lounge and serves a full range of drinks including over 100 wonderful single malts draught beers and the locally brewed Isle of Skye Brewery cask conditioned ales - it is an ideal place to relax over a drink after a hard day's sightseeing and watch the sun go down over the bay.
