About Lochmaddy

Lochmaddy is the island's main village and the administrative centre of North Uist in the outer Hebrides. The original name of the settlement was Cearsabhagh or Kersivay, probably given by Norse residents.

The town's main attraction is Taigh Chearsabhagh, a community arts centre and museum where you can also find a shop and cafe. Overlooked by picturesque mountains, the wild and beautiful landscape of the place is sure to take your breath away as you arrive by ferry. North Uist is perfect for fishing, walking and taking in the stunning natural landscape.
