Uig Gala Day

Usually held on the first Saturday of July, this is a fantastic day out for all the family.  All the usual attractions plus some that have only be thought up by people of a strange disposition during long dark winter nights, such as the world famous 'Sheep Race' including a man in a sheepdog costume. You need to be there.
