Uig is the main ferry terminus with regular sailings to the outer isles of Harris & Lewis via Tarbert and the Uists’ via Lochmaddy. Local services include a general store, petrol station, pub, bakery and the local Skye Brewery. The nearest primary school is in Kilmuir and secondary education is provided in Portree, some 18 miles to the south, together with all the facilities you would expect of a modern town (although known as ‘the village’) including supermarkets, shops, banks, cottage hospital, swimming pool and library. With its ferry links, Uig benefits from a daily bus service to Portree with onward links to the mainland. It is also only a short distance to the heart of the Quiraing and the Trotternish Ridge and a short drive to the north you have the ruins of Duntulm Castle.


Follow the A87 from Portree to Uig. On entering Uig turn left to Cuil and the cottage is on the left hand side.
