South Uist


In 2006 South Uist orchestrated the largest community buyout in Scoltand. Since then Stòras Uibhist has managed the majority of land on the island for the benefit of the local community, in addition to land on Eriskay and Benbecula.



SS Politician was a cargo ship that ran aground off the coast of the Hebridean island of Eriskay in 1941. Her cargo included 22,000 cases of malt whisky and £3 million worth of Jamaican banknotes.
