Not far from the north end of the Isle of Skye lies the Trotternish Peninsula. At the head of the inlet, you’ll find the village of Uig, whose name comes from the Norse for sheltered bay.

Uig is home to 300 – 400 people, and offers ferry access to places such as Harris and Uist in the Outer Hebrides. I’ll be staying in the Uig Hotel, which began its life in 1831 as a coaching inn.

I’m looking forward to exploring landmarks such as the nearby Fairy Glen and more – including the Old Man of Stor, Kilt Rock and Quiraing.
