Brenish is a large village near the end of the Uig road – since the clearance of Mealista, it has been the last inhabited village in the district.
Brenish features a substantial collection of fish-curing and drying houses on the shore (some rebuilt as fanks), as well as a number of nausts (boat sheds). John Macaulay, a boatbuilder, lived at 19 Brenish. He would go to build a boat wherever it was required, as well as having built boats in the village itself.
