Holiday Rental House
Kneep Cottage is the ideal small family or couples getaway set in large gardens just a stones throw from a stunning and secluded white sand beach. From Easter to September the small village, set around 35 miles from the town of Stornoway (and about as far north and west as you can get in the UK) has a delightful laid back, holiday feel with boating and camping nearby and many beaches to choose from. But with so much wilderness all around its easy to spend a day seeing no-one at all, wandering down through an acre of garden to an almost private beach with rock-pools, soft sand and great, safe swimming.

Or you can head to the hills for long days of walking, as far away from the city as you could hope for. The cottage is a colourful home-from- home and is well equipped with oil central heating and two multi-fuel stoves making it the ideal winter retreat too, especially for creative types or outdoors or wildlife lovers who might like a longer stay. There is a plentiful supply of books, a second sitting room with toy-boxes for the kids and a shed full of wetsuits and beach toys. In summer the garden with private beach access brims with 'machair' wildflowers and wildlife from otters to corncrakes. In winter the view over small islands is dramatic and the northern lights are often seen from the doorstep. Kneep Cottage is not pretentious but it is extremely comfortable and in one of the best locations you could hope for. People tend to return year after year.More

Excellent location for us, as we were mainly interested in walking and exploring the wonderful local beaches, one of which was a short walk from the bottom of the garden! Not too far from Callanish (about 30 minutes), so we made several visits to photograph...More

About the neighbourhood
If you are looking to get away from it all – escape the “Madding Crowd” - in a friendly tucked away community then Kneep Cottage is the place for you. As an area Uig is a bit of a secret, a beach and mountain rich region un-spoilt by mainstream tourism, and which many fall in love with, returning year after year for walking, outdoor adventures of just a bit of time to think. Great for children, couples or small groups, the house, set in a acre of “machair” meadow, boasts private access to a white sand beach on a sheltered Atlantic bay dotted with tiny islands that can be easily reached by boat or kayak. Enjoy wildlife including seals, otters, eagles and rock-pool life as you enjoy a cup of coffee on the sand dunes at the bottom of t
