With direct access to the sea which fringes one of the many fantastic beaches of soft white sand in this area, comfortable beds and a wood burning stove this is a cosy retreat from which to explore this beautiful island.

Just a short walk down from the cottage is the old harbour and jetty and the beach is close enough to carry your kayak down to.  With a string of beautiful sandy beaches all around the Uig peninsula you will be spoiled for choice but if you prefer to be more adventurous there are opportunities for walking, kayaking, and wild swimming. This lovely area is also rich in history with standing stones at Callanish and the Iron Age Dun Carloway Broch both close by. Nearby the cottage you will find a well-stocked community shop and a community centre that also houses a museum and cafe.

The cottage was newly renovated in 2019 and is comfortably appointed for a relaxing stay. If you need slightly larger accommodation there is a second adjoining cottage, Taigh Tharmoid Ruaidh, with one bedroom. The two cottages can be let either separately or together. There is a sound proofed connecting door and corridor linking the two cottages.
