Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

The historic, quaint charm of this traditional island blackhouse gives way to the modern, warm interior of the property. The double bedroom features an impressive four poster bed and the bed linen and towels are included. The well equipped kitchen/living room contains everything you will need to enjoy your stay including TV/DVD player, iPod docking station and wifi. The property is accessed via a shared driveway with parking space situated next to the cottage. 2 steps lead into the entrance with the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom leading off.

The cottage is situated a short walk away from the stunning beach with its golden sand and turquoise sea. Guests have seen buzzards, owls and even a Golden Eagle from the garden which features a rowing boat filled with fresh herbs for guests to pick and enjoy. There are many walks that are suitable for all ages and abilities that offer a great way to engage with the unique landscape. The nature reserve at Balranald is easily reached with its rare birds including Corncrakes and Phalaropes. The dark skies are a haven for stargazers (particularly during the autumn and winter months) and keep an eye out for the Northern Lights too! The area is a paradise for: walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers, photographers, artists, astronomers, and people looking for a break from the hectic pace of daily life. North Uist can only be accessed by ferry or plane, making it very remote. The island is an incredibly friendly place, with the majority of drivers waving as they pass, even on the double track roads.

Cracking wee cottage with amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

The property itself is amazing! Absolutely everything catered for, there was nothing we didn’t have to hand! Actually bigger inside than it looks from the outside and beautifully and tastefully renovated. Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would ever need, dishwasher if you want to use it, washing machine in outside shed if required. Shower in bathroom is fabulous, good power and flow of water, nothing worse than a dribbling shower! Four poster bed is firm but very comfy and there is ample storage to put clothes away. We both loved our week in this lovely wee cottage and fell in love with North Uist, it’s just stunning!!

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful little cottage - comfortable, cosy and warm. All necessary equipment for cooking a full Christmas lunch! But, for me, the highlight was unquestionably the location. One can enjoy world class birdwatching from the garden, as the wildlife log testifies, and the stunning Clachan Sands is a short walk away. Great winter walking in the local area, one can only imagine how beautiful it is when the machair flowers.
