The Tigh Dearg
in Lochmaddy village is well worth the attention of visiting yachts. There are showers, a gym, a sauna, a steam room (not operating during our visit), and laundry facilities (after 2.00pm each day).
The bar sells its own Tigh Dearg house ale from the Isle of Skye Brewing Company
, and the meals range from upmarket bar meals to some really nice dishes, perhaps a bit pricier than the usual west coast fare, but well worth it. The wine list is also pretty decent.
Very friendly, professional approach. It seems to be a fairly new business, and has won some impressive accolades. You can see why.
As their website says,
Lochmaddy bay with its 300 miles of coastline, which is overlooked by most rooms in the hotel, provide our kitchen with scallops, fresh salmon, mussels, langoustines, lobsters, crab and a vast variety of sea fish. Our spectacular beaches provide many species such as cockles, razor fish and oysters and our thousand freshwater lochs provide wild salmon, sea trout and wild brown trout.
The hills surrounding the village are abundant with deer and game as well as heather fed lamb which is a must.
The machair land to the west of North Uist provide us with potatoes and purely organic vegetables (a meal in their right) and the cattle that graze amongst them provide us with world class beef.
No connection, just a satisfied customer. Enjoy!
