- The Ross
Uisken Beach is very picturesque and is accessible by car with a small car park right on the beach. It is very popular with families as there are rocky coves for the children to explore and the shallow beach is considered one of the safest for paddling, swimming and boating. To reach Uisken beach pass the turnoff for Ardalanish continue until the road ends at Uisken, which is a crofting township with houses dotted around the lovely sandy bay. The ruins of the abandoned township of Am Fam can be seen in the fields behind the beach. The lazybeds and terraces for the growing of crops can be seen, indicating a much larger community in the days before the clearances. At the east end of the beach there is small hill which can be reached by a short path. At the top is a cairn called “The Last Look Back” because it was a traditional stopping point for funerals in the past. From the cairn there are expansive views out over the sea to the islands of Colonsay, Jura and Islay.
