Skigersta (Scottish Gaelic: Sgiogarstaigh) is a village in the south east of Ness, Outer Hebrides in Scotland. There is a quay built in 1901 and a shingle beach. Skigersta was a location for fish curing in the 19th century with the ruins of the curing bothies still visible next to the river and a man-made channel in the shoreline allowing easier access for the boats. The area of Skigersta near the shore is called 'Lachamore'.
A cargo ship the Dun Alasdair heading to America was wrecked off Skigersta in 1885 in fog.
