We are currently offering a 20% discount on the second week for two consecutive weeks booked!
The accommodation is conveniently situated at the north end of South Uist in the township of Kilaulay.
From here you can travel north where the east side boasts rugged landscape, harbours, wildlife in abundance. On the west clear blue waters and golden sands. The islands of Grimsay, North Uist and Berneray can easily be visited in a day. Craft shops, museums, a smokehouse, cafes are all worth a visit too. The ferry to Harris and Lewis is caught from Berneray.
Heading south takes you to Daliburgh, Lochboisdale, Eriskay. Again, craft shops, cafes, museums, all on the way to interest and refresh. The ferry to Barra is caught at Eriskay.
Wildlife and scenery have to be the most prominent features of these amazing islands. Birds, too numerous to list, are everywhere. The amazing machair is well worth a visit too where wildflowers will delight with their colours and perfume. Ground nesting birds use it for summer nesting so take care of where you tread.
New for 2015 – Dogs welcome by prior arrangement – £30 cleaning surcharge per stay.
For the more active amongst you why not hire a bicycle and take the side roads to discover thatched cottages, ruins and maybe even an otter or stag.
We have a sports facility on the islands too where a refreshing dip in the pool followed by a sauna is certain to revive even the weariest of travellers. There is also a well stocked library within the secondary school building where visitors are most welcome to use the facilities.
Fishing is also popular on the islands and there are lochs throughout the islands where day permits are available to purchase. Please see the tourist information leaflets for organised fishing trips etc.
Larger townships of Balivanich, Creagorry, Lochmaddy, Bayhead and Sollas have shops/supermarkets for provisions.
