It is told in myths that the creator tired of labouring to make the world, yet still held a handful of jewels to place upon the Earth. Wearily they
were cast forth, to fall where they may.
The emerald, the largest, fell first. It became known as Eire, or Ireland, but to this day is still better known as the Emerald Isle. The others,
smaller but no less precious, fell further afield and were to become known for all time as The Hebrides.
The Isle of Benbecula is one of these jewels, and lies in the centre of the chain of islands known as The Uists.
It is to these islands that we would like to welcome you.
