Eaval (Eabhal), North Uist

Eaval is the highest hill on North Uist. Though only 347m in height its steep cone dominates the low-lying island and provides unique, stunning views of the amazing land-and-waterscape around it.


Faint, boggy path to foot of Eaval, then pathless steep ascent. Rugged going throughout. The stepping stones at the outflow of Loch Obasaraigh can be covered at very high tide, check tide times before setting out.

Public Transport

None. Traveline Scotland.


End of minor road along Loch Euphort. Map and directions.
