Across the Uists you will encounter wildlife and nature wherever you go. Whether you are taking a walk on the biodiverse moorland or stroll along the endless beaches, a vast variety of plants and animals will be there to greet you every step of the way.


You want to get close to nature in one of the world’s most unspoilt environments? With three nature reserves, the Uists are home to countless species and therefore the perfect place to visit. Thousands of birds make these beautiful islands a must-see destination not only for passionate birdwatchers.
