Update: There’s an eleventh event: a Santa’s Grotto starting at 3 pm at Uist Community Riding School, East Camp, Balivanich.
Uist will hit critical mass for Christmas on Saturday (December 10), with at least ten different community events competing for attention from Grimsay to South Uist.
The fun-filled day starts at 10 am with a wreath-making workshop at Ceann na h-Airigh and Grimsay Boat Haven, a Christmas Fair at Sgoil Uibhist a Tuath in Paible, and the path works for the Loch Druidibeg Volunteer Day.
Starting an hour later, at 11 am, there is a Christmas Fair at Sgoil Dhalabroig, a festive open studio trail at Sollas Bookbinding and Shoreline Pottery, and Berneray Shop and Bistro’s Winter Exhibition, both of which run until 3 pm.
At noon, a Christmas Market opens at Carinish Hall.
There’s a lull in the afternoon before it all kicks off again with the Women in Business cocktail and mocktail networking event in Nunton Steadings and a Christmas Party Night at Langass Lodge, starting at 7 pm.
The day then gets rounded off from 10 pm with a Party Night at Southend Community Hall.
