The Uig Hub
The road curves down the hill, around the bay and ends at Uig Pier, Skye. It appears peaceful enough here in this image - particularly with no ships in sight - but from 22 February - 7 April Uig will become something of a hub. Owing to improvement work on docking facilities at Ullapool, there will be a passenger-only service to and from there and Stornoway. Vehicle and freight carrying will be on two separate services on the Stornoway - Uig route. The crossings from Uig to Lochmaddy and Tarbert will continue unaffected. The Stornoway Gazette has the details of this six-week amendment to CalMac's changes.
