If you take a ferry on your way north through the Outer Hebrides, you will arrive at South Uist, another island of the Outer Hebrides. The crossing itself is truly picturesque, taking in eye-catching white houses perched on the cliffs.
The Uists are also connected to the island of Benbecula by road, and taking a bus from the habour is easy. Despite their fantastic scenery and attractions, South Uist, North Uist, and Benbecula remain insiders' secrets, enjoyed by a number of savvy travellers.
South Uist is renowned for its excellent golfing, while surfers adore the conditions of the coast of North Uist. From here you can also organise a boat trip to one of the most fascinating forgotten regions, the uninhabited UNESCO protected islands of St. Kilda. Even if the population never exceeded 180 people there, this archipelago was continuously inhabited for two millennia until 1930, when the last locals left.
