Former crofter's cottage, Taigh Iain offers the perfect getaway for families or couples. The cottage is located on the west coast of Lewis on the Island of Great Bernera. Although an island, Bernera is connected to Lewis by the only bridge that crosses the Atlantic! Taigh Iain is a stone's throw from a small sandy beach, that is ideal for swimming.

I recently referred a French family here, they asked me to pass on.." we had the best holiday ever, beautiful house, spotlessly clean and a perfect base for exploring especially the beaches in Uig. A hidden gem, what's not to like.

About the neighbourhood
Lewis is the largest island of the Outer Hebrides. The best time to visit is from April to October, when the days are long and the weather mild. The scenery is spectacular, with many white sand beaches which stretch for miles. It is the ideal place to get away from it all and have a healthy, restful break.
Getting around
A car is essential for touring the island and as the cottage is in a remote setting.
