Uig Lodge


Uig Lodge was built in 1876 by James Matheson and later given by Lord Leverhulme to his niece as a wedding present.

It was the first concrete dwelling house in Scotland; the sand came from the northwest shore of Loch Stacsavat, carried there by women in kists on their backs at 3d a trip. The house is currently let as a fishing lodge.


We will be digitaising all of our archives soon…

The archives we have are currently in the Museum. Most of the known genealogy of Uig Lodge has been documented on Hebridean Connections.
