Accommodation Info
The township of Howmore lies on the west coast of South Uist in an area widely covered with machair (shell sand) forming a rich soil for grass and colourful wild flowers in the summer season. There is also easy access to the long sandy beaches nearby. The hostel overlooks a ruined chapel and a burial ground of the Clan Ranald chiefs. A wonderful setting full of history. Operated by the Gatliff Trust. No advance booking, sheet sleeping bags required: Senior 10 / Junior 6.
