Uig, 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. In 1880 an elder of the Free Church brought what was probably the last charge of witchcraft, against a mother and her daughters. They all survived! Duncan Macpherson used this photograph as one of the illustrations in his book 'Lure of the West', published in 1950
