Lochmaddy and the Hut of the Shadows

A enjoyable exploration of the coastline of Lochmaddy, visiting a hidden camera obscura before heading through crofting land typical of North Uist. The footbridge on this route is currently closed so it is not possible to reach the hut unless you go the other way round using the road first and heading to the hut from Sponish.


Good path and track with return on the single track main road which is usually quiet.

Public Transport
