271 - North Uist


“I would like to know if the Crown Estate Scotland assumes ownership of the foreshore in North Uist, particularly the Cheesebay area.”

“Could you please provide me with any relevant information regarding the Crown Estate Scotland’s ownership of the foreshore in North Uist? This includes any documents, reports or correspondence related to the matter”.


Enclosed is a For Your Information Only map that shows the foreshore ownership in North Uist.

The legend on the map indicates that the foreshore in North Uist is non-crown (therefore not managed by Crown Estate Scotland).

Except for the island of Ruisigearraidh where Crown Estate Scotland has undergone Voluntary Registration by way of Registers of Scotland Land Registration program.

Registers of Scotland ( would have information with regards to who manages non-crown foreshore.
