With stunning views across the beach and beyond to the beautiful island of Eriskay, this detached, single-storey cottage offers a perfect base for exploring South Uist, Benbecula, Barra and North Uist. The archipelago off the islands are all linked by causeways or small bridges, so travelling between them all is very easy. With miles of white sandy beaches, turquoise seas and a blanket of rare flowers turning the famous machair into a shimmering mass of colour, the Uists are undoubtedly beautiful. Surrounded by an abundance of wildlife, seals and otters are often spotted, whilst basking sharks, dolphins and whales visit during the summer months. Hen harriers, sea eagles, golden eagles and the elusive corncrake make the islands a birdwatchers’ paradise! Steeped in history, the Uists offer many historic and archaeological sites, including the earliest crannog site in Scotland located at Eilean Dòmhnuill, possibly dating back to 3200 BC. Other sites include the Bonnie Prince Charlie Trail, Trinity Temple at Carnish, Kildonan Museum and the chambered cairn at Barpa Langass.
There are plenty of outdoor pursuits including cycling, kayaking, walking, fishing, golf and horse riding. At Lochmaddy the Uist Outdoor Centre offers a wide range of activities including sea kayaking, diving and whale watching, whilst for those with good sea legs, a short boat trip to St Kilda and the Monach Isles is worthwhile. With magnificent sunrises and sunsets, South Uist will allow you to relax and rejuvenate your batteries, leaving the stresses of everyday life far behind! Beach ¼ mile. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
