Travel guide to Lochboisdale
Lochboisdale is easily the biggest place in the Hebridean island of South Uist, although with only some 1100 people. South Uist is now connected by causeway to Benbecula, itself connected by causeway to the North with some tiny islands, Grimsay and North Uist. Until the 20th century communication with the island was entirely by boat. This is a partial explanation of Lochboisdale and South uist being able to preserve a different religion [RC] from that of the rest of the Western Isles [Free Presbyterian].
As in the rest of the Outer Hebrides, however, there is a complete division in the nature of the island between its east and west coasts, which are not far apart. The west coast has fine sandy beaches and the flowers of the machair on a flat piece of land behind the sand, extending all the way from south to north. The east coast is much less hospitable, cliffs and coves.
However the Highland Clearances of the 18th century mean that there are virtually no settlements on the west! [edit text]  [editors]
