January 2016. Congratulations to the Christie family, expecting a double duty of nappy changing this coming summer. Alas the abundance of maternal joy is not easily combined with the rigours of holidays with an extended family, so they’ve reluctantly decided that this year they must forego their regular fortnight’s family holiday at Eight Askernish. Thus two weeks in July have been freed for others to enjoy the delights of Uist in high summer. If you don’t want the full two weeks, that’s fine – you can book as little as three nights. But if you do want the full fourteen days, you’d better get a move on!
