Moving on to South Uist, I wanted to check out Lochboisdale. The roads are mostly single track, with passing places. It can get pretty frustrating having to keep pulling over, but that's what must be done. It's a much slower and leisurely way of life on the islands. I didn't see any signs of aggressive or impatient driving. I was on holiday, the locals must get a tad miffed by slow coaches like me getting in the way. I endeavoured to pull in and let someone pass if they came rushing up behind me.
Two vehicles coming towards each other might both pull into a passing place, then wait to see which one makes a move first. That's ok if neither of them are in a particular hurry. Mostly there is lots of hand waving and smiling as you pass each other.
Boats come into Lochboisdale from Tobermory and Castlebay on Barra. None came when I was there.
The gift shop was not open. It is coming towards the end of the season, and it was a Sunday.
