Holiday Rental House
Our spacious well equipped holiday home is in a peaceful sheltered setting with large enclosed garden and fantastic sea views over to Little Bernera and the Atlantic. There are 2 large double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and a double bed settee in the downstairs lounge if sleeping 8. The second sizeable lounge upstairs has a large corner sofa and patio windows which open onto a Juliet balcony taking full advantage of the views – a great place to chill with a large glass of wine. The road by the house ends 200 yards further down on a rocky beach – there is no passing traffic, just the odd explorer, so very peaceful.

There are 2 large double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and a double bed settee in the downstairs lounge if sleeping 8. The second sizeable lounge upstairs has a large corner sofa and patio windows which open onto a Juliet balcony taking full advantage of the views – a great place to chill with a large glass of wine. The road by the house ends 200 yards further down on a rocky beach – there is no passing traffic, just the odd explorer, so very peaceful. Bosta Beach and the Iron Age House are only two miles away – a very pleasant walk – there are also many other stunning beaches within easy drive. Golden Eagles nest locally and are frequently seen – the area is perfect for nature lovers, ramblers and cyclists alike to explore. Water sports such as surfing and kayaking are also popular activities. Local boat trips are available to the islands or you can visit the nearby Callanish Standing Stones, the Black House village at Gearrannan or travel slightly further afield to the lighthouse north of Ness with it's spectacular coastal scenery. The nearby village of Breacleit has a small shop and petrol station and there is also a community centre with cafe and internet services. The main town of Lewis is Stornoway which is a distance of 25 miles (40 minutes drive) and has two large supermarkets to choose from which do home deliveries. Facilities There are two bathrooms – the downstairs one includes an overhead shower but the ceiling height is a bit low (old part of the house!) so if you’re over 5’8” you might need to crouch a bit to use it! Our well equipped kitchen includes dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, full height fridge freezer and tumble drier (which is in the porch). There is a separate dining room off the open plan kitchen and lounge and the porch for leaving outside clothes, boots etc. As well as the oil-fired central heating there is a wood burning stove downstairs for cosy evenings in. There are televisions in both lounges as well as the master bedroom so the kids can watch their favourite channels without interrupting yours! We’ve supplied a DVD and CD player along with a selection of videos and CDs as well as a docking station for use with your own mp3 player. Books and games in situ too. Mobile signal can be a bit erratic but there is a working telephone box opposite the house just in case all else fails (which hasn’t happened yet!). Satellite broadband has been installed so you will have internet access and wifi. A cot, high chair and safety stair gate are available on request. We don’t allow smoking in the house. More

This is a great location, miles from anywhere, a sheltered sun-trap (at least when we were there!) looking out over the mouth of Loch Roag to the North Atlantic. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable, and the cottage is well prepared and well equipped....More

A beautiful cottage - the bed was exceptionally comfy! Lovely views from the lounge over to Little Bernera and only a short drive to Bosta beach. A brilliant spot for birdwatchers with golden eagles, merlins and cuckoos all seen from the garden. I'd definitely recommend.

Great location so near to Bosta Beach and Iron Age House. A truly fantastic location. Uig not too far away and doesn't get as much press as it should for its amazing beaches. Very welcoming community wherever you go.
