Sponish Peninsula


(Sp˛nais)

A finger of land which lies between Loch Houram and Loch Maddy in the northeast of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides, the Sponish Peninsula (Gael: Sp˛nais) lies a half-mile (1 km) north of the settlement of Lochmaddy. The peninsula is 1¼ miles (2 km) in length and is almost an island, with Loch an Strumore cutting across much of its western end. The settlement of Sponish, which is located at its eastern extremity, is accessed by a track from the west or a foot-bridge across the channel from Lochmaddy.
