About the local area

Lochside is on the Isle of North Uist, which is situated in the Outer Hebrides, a cluster of islands to the west of Scotland’s mainland. North Uist is a popular location for walkers, bird watchers and cyclists with stunning beaches, salt water lochs and fertile coastal grasslands harbouring a host of wildlife. Lochmaddy is the main town where you can catch the ferry to Uig on the Isle of Skye.
Otter spotting is a popular pastime on the island with sea lochs and inlets providing the perfect habitat for these fascinating creatures. Anglers will feel at home with the opportunity to catch brown trout, sea trout and salmon from a number of locations. The RSPB nature reserve at Balranald is famous for its corncrakes, one of Europe’s most endangered species. The stunning sweeping sandy beaches and rocky foreshore is the perfect place for the corncrakes to thrive.
If you wish to travel further afield you can catch the ferry to the Isle of Skye where you can explore the rest of the Outer Hebrides, most notably the Isles of Lewis, Harris and Eriskay. A holiday on North Uist provides a look at Hebridean life with its range of natural and historical attractions.
