From Charlottetown, take the Trans Canada Highway (Route 1) east about 20km to route 3 toward Georgetown. Take route 3 about 8 km to route 24 on your right. Continue on route 24 to the hamlet of Uigg. You will see the Uigg cemetery on your right. Continue on a km or two and you will find the Uigg Pioneer Cemetery on your left.
This old cemetery is the final resting place of Scotch settlers mostly from the Isle of Skye. Some stones are not easy to read and a couple are lying flat. The cemetery is not very big and there is no fence or gate but the cemetery is kept mowed.
