Askernish Golf Course

Situated on the West side of South Uist, Askernish Golf Course is a unique test for any grade of golfer. Originally designed by Old Tom Morris, four times winner of the Open Askernish Golf Course is at present undergoing extensive restoration work to bring it back to its original 18 hole status.

This is a great location to stay and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of a totally different way of life. Fishing, golfing, diving, birdwatching and walking are what attracts many of our visitors to the area. deer

beach The Hebrides are famed for their long and usually empty, white sandy beaches which stretch along the west coast of the islands, running alongside the flowering machair.

For those interested in history, you will be spoilt for choice. Just a short drive away is Flora MacDonald's birthplace at Milton and the ruins of Ormacleit Castle which burned down on the eve of the Battle of Sherriffmuir. Scattered throughout South Uist you will see many of the traditional thatched cottages such as this one (pictured left) which overlooks Lochboisdale. cottage

Finn's People Travel further back in time and you can visit a wealth of archaeolgical sites of interest throughout the Uists including the huge prehistoric burial chamber at Barpa Langass with the nearby standing stone circle known as Finn's People.

The neighbouring islands of Eriskay and Barra are well worth a visit and day trips on the ferry are easily arranged. You are quite likely to spot dolphins along the way and you can see the location of the shipwreck which inspired Compton Mackenzie to write his novel Whisky Galore which was later turned into a film shot on Barra.

To the north you can also visit Harris and Lewis on a day trip by ferry from North Uist. There's certainly plenty to do and see wherever you go on these islands!
