Uig,Isle of Skye to Lochmaddy,Isle of North Uist

Oban to Lochboisdale ,Isle of South Uist

Our favourite way is to go from Glasgow via Loch Lomond and then drive across Glencoe and take the short ferry at Corran and stay on the Ardnamurchan peninsular for a stop over. In the morning drive to Mallaig and take the ferry to Skye and then across the Island to Uig. Fantastic scenic journey and a very relaxing start to your holiday.

Otherwise you can get up to North Uist in one day from most UK places via the road link to Skye and the ferry from Uig.
