Welcome to Benbecula (Beinn Na Faoghla)
Benbecula, which sits between North Uist and South Uist, and is connected to both by causeways, is a low-lying island with a flat, lochan-studded landscape that's best appreciated from the summit of Rueval (124m), the island’s highest point. There’s a path around the southern side of the hill (signposted from the main road; park beside the landfill site) that is said to be the route taken to the coast by Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald during the prince’s escape in 1746.
The main village is Balivanich, which has a bank with an ATM, a post office, a couple of supermarkets and a petrol station (open on Sunday). It is also the location of Benbecula airport.
