About

Mary, the owner is a teacher of Gaelic and is on hand to offer an introduction to the Gaelic language for those wishing to learn more about this living language of the Western Isles. For those who are learning the language, she can offer one to one tuition to any level. The area is still crofted in the traditional way and wandering the tracks and paths will lead you to see the activities of the crofting community.

Bird watchers will not be disappointed as you can walk from the house down to the shore, an area rich in waders and other resident and migratory birds. The coast here is close and offers extensive walking along the machair and sandy shore where in Spring and Summer rich flower carpets form. Archaeological sites are scattered around and it is best to visit the Kildonan Museum to see informative displays on the sites and the crofting history. There is also a cafe here for lunches.

There is a Coop store not far away for all your grocery needs but you will also find various smaller shops and outlets for seafood and specialities. Indeed, not very far from the cottage, a Swedish Bakery is set to open in 2021!

Cyclists can enjoy the quiet single track roads of the Hebridean Way and it is a lovely day trip to cycle to Eriskay, take the ferry to Barra, cycle round and back by evening! Touring up to North Uist allows exploration of the many side roads and then right round the coast and back. You will see plenty of signs to seafood outlets, home spun wool shop, cafes, craft shops, galleries and jewellery studios.

For children, the beaches are the best - clean, wide open spaces with very few people and an abundance of shells to collect.
