Uig Bay is a sheltered inlet of on the west coast of the Trotternish peninsula on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

How to get there:

Ferry from mainland to Stornaway.

Facilities:

Toilets and changing at Reef beach nearby, local community shop in Uig.

Hazards:

Be aware of tides and weather subject to change at will.

Ins and Outs:

Little harbour in the lovely village of Cnip (English – Kneep) or just launch off any white sandy beach.

Overview:

The stunning beaches and little harbours are an ideal place to launch for a bit of island exploring or maybe a little bit of surf action, my personal favourite is the little island of Pabbay Mor, uninhabited with it’s own special lagoon and even a giant stone arch. Takes a bit of effort to paddle to the lagoon but well worth the effort, you may see seals porpoises and maybe the odd basking shark along the way.
