A selection of images from South Uist. There was a Viking settlement, the Viking Settlement of Bornaus Machhair. There is the “Uist Unearthed” App which shows how settlements and other archaeological areas might have looked, definitely would recommend downloading it.
The remains of Ormacleit Castle – built in the early 18th century.
Flora MacDonald´s Birthplace
Flora (1722-1790), a Jacobite heroine, assisted Bonnie Prince Charlie and helped him escape the government army in 1746, after he fled the mainland following the Jacobite defeat at Culloden. She was later arrested and taken to the Tower of London, but was released after the Act of Indemnity was passed in 1747. (Visit Outer Hebrides)
