New tourism guide available

21st May 2019

Ceòlas has produced a bilingual heritage & archaeological gazetteer for the area covered by the South Uist Estate (Eriskay to Benbecula), which includes information on the area’s unique cultural characteristics.

This tourism guide draws together a range of information concerning the culture, heritage and archaeology of the area within the Parish of South Uist.

The guidebook has been written and proofed by a number of members of the South Uist community and draws on sources including archaeological reports, folkloric publications and anecdotes from contemporary life and culture.

It provides an easily accessible, rough-and-ready guide to some of the most unique and compelling attributes of these islands, covering topics from the SS Politician, MacMhuirich and the Beast, piping, standing stones, Norse settlement and more.
