Situated in a raised location above the roadside as it slopes down into Uig village, Uig Hotel overlooks Uig Bay with views to hills across Loch Snizort, plus there’s the chance of a walk up the narrow road behind the hotel to the mysterious Fairy Glen, which featured extensively in the Hollywood film Stardust.
But the best views are from the bedrooms of the separate lodge higher on the hill behind the hotel...and this accommodation has now been modernised to the highest standards.
These are the latest changes wrought by owners Billy and Anne Harley who took over the Uig Hotel in August 2013. Since then, they have made many improvements, especially to the hotel’s menu aiming to provide “Scottish food with a classical twist. We have a passion for sourcing local produce wherever we can from seafood fresh from Loch Snizort to venison direct from the local gamekeeper.”
And similar attention to detail has gone into all the work over the winter on the lodge accommodation including modernising the overall look by cladding the exterior in larch.
Inside there are all new furnishings; all new bath and shower rooms; a fabulous family suite over two rooms sleeping up to five people; high speed fibre internet access in all bedrooms; and new windows and heating as well.
But even Billy and Anne cannot improve on the view of Uig Bay and Loch Snizort from all the bedroom windows!
