Discussion: Debating whether to move to South Uist, or the North Coast mainland.

I currently live in Inverness with my Hubby & three dogs. We are both practically just about retired, although still in our early 40s, looking for a place to settled down, & have some chill out time.

So far, we have never been to any of the Uists, but planning a trip in the next few weeks to try to get a feel for the place.

My question is, how would the locals accept us, as we do like to keep ourselves to ourselves, although we dont want to live in complete issolation ?

I shall look forward to hearing your replies :-)

Hi there - I moved here with my family 8 years ago. The Uists are a fantastic place to relax, cldar you head and get stuck into some proper rural living. The locals are friendly. It's quite amazing how mch we have here - it's just "not in your face" all the time - you have to go to it.

If you fancy getting in touch to chat more then mail me.

Hi Mary.

I am coming over next week to view a property for rent with Uist property, so fingers crossed that it will suit our needs.

Yes I have heard about the many sheep on the island, thankfully my dogs are well trained & are always leaded up if there are any livestock around.

Thanks for the reply.
