Uig Hostel offers fantastic views over the bay, good facilities, including private rooms and a warm welcome. Uig is the gateway to the Outer Hebridean Islands and ferries leave daily.

The eerie pinnacles of the Quiraing, the famous Old Man of Storr, and the magical fairy Glen are not far from Uig. Locally, you can hire bikes and canoes or try pony trekking. Get away from the tourist hoards, our relaxed and friendly hostel is an ideal base for exploring the wild and magical north of the Island.
