Uig Hotel

Uig Hotel on Uig Bay

is found on the Trotternish Peninsula and has relaxing views of Uig Bay and Loch Snizort and surrounding area. Start with the crocodile and scallops, a bit unusual, but worth the risk, move on to the Springbok fillet, and be sure to leave room for the lovely pudding and perhaps a Scottish coffee. The Uig Hotel has 15 rooms which face Uig Bay and makes this property a good selection for those wanting an authentic Scottish accommodation at a Skye hotel.

At one time this was a coaching inn with former steading, Sobhraig House, above the hotel. Ferry connections between Lochmaddy on North Uist and Tarbert on Harris make this accessible, yet the perfect place to get away from it all.  Have a beverage in front of one of the warm fires, or in the sun-lounge which overlooks the bay. Sobhraig House has been converted to lodging with a very high standard, and its rooms have lovely views as well.

There’s no hustle and bustle that you get at the large properties in Sleat or Portree, and serves as a good stop for a night as you plan a multi-day tour of the Isle of Skye. Address: Uig Hotel, Uig, Isle of Skye, IV51 9YE Telephone: 01470542205 Website:  Uig Hotel Website
