Fodor's Review

At Newtonferry (Port nan Long) stands the remains of what was reputed to be the last inhabited broch in North Uist, Dun an Sticar. This defensive tower, reached by a causeway over the loch, was abandoned when the Vikings arrived in the 9th century and then reoccupied by Hugh Macdonald, a descendant of Macdonald of Sleat, until he reached an unpleasant end in 1602.
