A foodie road trip in the Outer Hebrides | Olive Magazine

Our trip to the Outer Hebrides a few years ago has made us incredibly wistful to return at some point, so this list of great food spots is perfect:

  • North Uist Distillery now produces Downpour gin (love the name ♥) and are working on a whisky using the oldest barley breed in the UK: bere
  • Hebridean Smokehouse in Clachan for smoked scallops and pâté
  • Namara Café in Grimsay for seafood (at the back of the Kallin Shellfish shop); the bacon and scallop rolls are a speciality, crab rolls are exceptional
  • Uist Scandi Bakery in Lochboisdale (South Uist) has great cinnamon buns and sourdough
  • Scallop Shack, Uig on Lewis for cheap local scallops (honesty box system so need cash or can be preordered via Facebook)
  • Flavour chocolates include a Harris Gin variety (Harris Gin also getting a mention, obviously)
  • Sam's Seafood Shack, a blue caravan near Clements Church in Rodel, has a daily menu depending on the catch

Also, Tigharry Schoolhouse sounds like a great holiday rental in the Uists. Plus, the Euston to Glasgow sleeper gets you within striking distance and Car Hire Hebrides is a useful company to remember.
