Become Acquainted

There are about 1,600 residents in North Uist, including the islands of Baleshare, Berneray and Grimsay. This is a decline of 35% since the 1950s and attempts are being made to revive the effectiveness of the local economy. Become acquainted with what is happening through a West Highland Free Press interview with Robert Fraser, Chairman of the North Uist Development Company, and what has happened geographically and historically through Undiscovered Scotland. The view across Loch Euphort (above) shows a construction designed to attract; the beginning of the ford to Vallay marks the start of a road that leads to a deserted settlement.
