About the neighbourhood
Our guests report seeing corncrake, otters and other rare wildlife during their visit. There is a golden eagle living locally which can often be seen soaring over the cottage on its way to feed. Within a 5 mile radius, there are numerous silver sandy beaches, which can be regarded as crowded if there is anyone else there. 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.
How to get there
Ferry from Uig (Skye) to Lochmaddy. Ferry from Leverburgh (Harris) to Berneray. Ferry from Oban or Mallaig to Lochboisdale (South Uist). See CalMac website for times and prices. PLEASE NOTE, SATURDAY FERRIES ARE HEAVILY BOOKED THROUGH THE SUMMER SEASON.
