Uig district on the west of Lewis, is reached by the B8011, which branches off south west from the A858 at Garynahine. It is a twisting but spectacularly scenic road leading to several places of interest.
Balnakil was the birthplace of Coinneaeh Odhar. the Brahan Seer, and the Selaro is a reniarkable chasm in the moor, deep enough to take the Butt of Lewis lighthouse and connected underground with the sea. There are ﬁne views of Great Ber and its satellite islands, the lsle of Berisay, retreat off the outlawed Neil MacLeod, and Loch Roag.
Round on the Atlantic coast there is a beautiful sandy bay at Ardroil, past the village of Uig. and little side roads lead to other beaches at Valtos, Reef, Carnish and Mangersta, while interesting freshwater lochs dot the area.
