"Uig Sands" Lewis Things to Do Tip by travelmad478

Lewis Things to Do: 13 reviews and 12 photos


It's not easy to reach the Uig Sands--you'll have to drive over single-track roads for about 45 minutes to get there from the main part of Lewis--but it's well worth a visit. The landscape is truly amazing, with rocky hills overlooking a massive area of sand flats. The flats are essentially a huge tidal pool, and you can watch the whole area slowly fill with seawater each day. When there's no water, you can walk right across from one side to the other. The fishing in this area is legendary.
