This is easily missed but is a fun short stop nonetheless. At the end of the day this is a hole in a mound of earth covered by grass which unless your under 5 foot in height you will struggle to enter. If you can enter there isn't much to see, it is dark and cramped with no natural light (so you will need a torch). The main attraction for me was actually the fascination of seeing the entrance and the interpretation.

The interpretation of the site is interesting and tells you what this would have been used for, apparently there are quite a few of these on Skye which I didn't know. I understand this is the easiest to access though. It is a very short walk from the car park, maybe three minutes over fairly dry ground. Accessibility isn't the worst but there is no path.

The car park is sufficiently spacious, there are no other facilities though.

The souterrain was only discovered back in the early 2000s when a hole developed in a field, and some excavation was done. It was found to be an iron age underground passage, that apparently links the passage to a round house a distance away. The passage is about 17m long, 3/4m wide and at most 1.5m high but looked really interesting.
We could see a huge puddle of water a couple of metres inside the passage so we didn’t go in any further as we didn’t have a torch so couldn’t have seen anything, but we were very glad we had seen the souterrain.

This Souterrain is certainly worth a visit for 30 minutes or so, especially if you care to imagine what life may have been like, so many years ago. It is a few mile from the Museum of Island life on the left hand side of the road down to Uig. There are the ruins of an iron age round house as well. The information boards are informative and enable one to understand the significance of the place, It is also free as well!

Accidentally stumbled upon this. Looked cool but it is completely flooded so no exploration. Some info at site which is beautiful.
