Lochboisdale

Lochboisdale is a community and the main population centre on the island of South Uist, Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Lochboisdale is within the parish of South Uist. Lochboisdale is situated at the southern end of the A865.HistoryThe town profited from the herring boom in the 19th century, and a steamer pier was built in 1880. In 1905, a mission church was built, and by 1953, steamers were connecting Lochboisdale with Oban, Castlebay, Mallaig and Lochmaddy.EconomyLochboisdale is the ferry terminal for the island of South Uist. The pier area has undergone a transformation as the old shop and surrounding buildings were either renovated or removed to provide new housing and commercial units for rent.Lochboisdale Hotel, built in the late 19th century as a fishing hotel, is adjacent to the ferry terminal.Lochboisdale has a Post Office and Police Station within walking distance of the pier. There is a Free Church of Scotland in the village although most of the inhabitants are Catholic. A Coffee Shop/Internet Cafe is situated in the Post Office in Kenneth Drive at the entrance to the village of Lochboisdale. A tourist information centre and a bank are located opposite the ferry queue. By the pier is an all purpose store called Failte (meaning welcome in the local Gaelic language).Lochboisdale Development Limited have recently opened a new harbour on Gaasay providing many facilities.
