Uig Bay, Isle of Skye

Uig on the west of the Trotternish peninsula has one of the most sheltered bays on the Isle of Skye. A crofting township and important fishing port, it is also a major link with the Western Isles with a terminal for ferries to North Uist and the Isle of Harris. The pier was greatly extended in 1894 at a cost of £9000. King Edward Vll and Queen Alexandra visited Uig on 1 September 1902 and he performed the 'official ' opening of the pier. A commemorative memorial to the event stands at the head of the pier
