Iochdar village is located on the Isle of South Uist, which is situated in the Western Isles of Scotland. It has many historical sights and interesting locations, in and around the village, but it is largely known as a good fishing destination in Scotland and home to one of Scotland’s largest jewelry manufacturers.
The Hebrides are named for the Norse word Harbredey which, when roughly translated, means the "isles at the edge of the sea". This aptly describes the Outer Hebrides since they are the most westerly islands off the Scottish mainland. The Outer Herbrides are a number of many smaller islands that are situated in relatively close proximity to each other.
