Consider these changes that have occurred. First there was William Bald’s survey of the potential main routes through South Uist. This distinguished road engineer opted for the shoreline while eventually traffic was carried on the present one towards the middle of the plain. There are plans to reinvigorate the older route as the Machair Path as part of the Hebridean Way. Then the photograph of Howmore Hostel, taken in 1970, which is of a place offering the most basic of accommodation to travellers. Its improvements have been considerable and the current Appeal will once again upgrade its many attractive features. These changes are featured on the Heritage Paths Project from Scotways, the Scottish Rights of Way and Access Society.
