Local Area

The location of Polochar Inn makes it an ideal base for exploring the Uists, Eriskay and Barra.

South Uist is a beautiful island with mile after mile of white powder beaches to the west and hills to the east, dominated by Beinn Mhor.  The machair that borders the beaches provides a marvellous habitat for flora and fauna and is home to the rare Corncrake.  Machair is a Gaelic word meaning fertile low lying grassy plain.

Sporting enthusiasts can have a round of golf at Askernish Golf Course.  The course was designed by the famous Old Tom Morris.  Transport can be arranged between the hotel and the course.

Fishing is also popular in the area, the Uists rank among the top destinations in the world for trout and salmon fishing.  We also have a large shed which guests can use to store fishing rods.
