Uig is a crofting and fishing village in north-west Skye, attractively set round a sheltered bay where currently a ferry service runs to Harris and North Uist. Rows of herring barrels lie on the pier ready for transportation. The pier was extended in 1894 at a cost of £9000. En route to Stornoway, on 1 September 1902, King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra stopped at Uig, where the King performed the 'official opening'. There is a memorial to commemorate this event at the head of the pier
