Taigh Chearsabhadh

Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre is a place where people can meet, share ideas, learn new skills and experience cultural interpretation that is imaginative and stimulating.

Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre is a partnership between Comann Eachdraidh Uibhist a Tuath and the Uist Art Association. More

Trinity Temple

Trinity Temple is a historic ruin, listed as of European significance and possibly Scotland’s oldest University. The

building is the remains of a medieval monastery and college, founded by Beathag, daughter of Somerled. The building has been extended up to the 16th Century, but destroyed after the reformation. Again restored in the 19th Century by Dotair Ban. More

This beautiful Hebridean reserve has sandy beaches, rocky foreshore, marshes and sand-dunes.
