Built around 1850, the house has been in Frank’s family since. The house sits above a rocky bay on Loch Shielavaig and has views of Hecla and Skye.
The area is ideal for anyone with a love of peace and quiet and the outdoors. Walking, fishing (licences can be obtained locally), bird watching, photography, or just relaxing. Horse riding at Uist Riding School, Benbecula and North Uist Outdoor Centre has canoeing and other water sports. We love it and hope you do too.

Where you’ll be

Na h-Eileanan an Iar, Scotland, United Kingdom

The large garden is fenced so is safe for children and dogs. The house is about 4 1/2 miles off the main road which runs through the islands of South Uist and Benbecula. The house sits in a township of 7 houses. There is parking for 2 cars at the side of the house. Our neighbours are crofters abc they have 4 border collies. They come over to visit but they are very friendly and one, Max, might even accompany you on a walk.

Frank and I live in Renfrewshire. I work for a UK charity in Glasgow. We both have an interest in photography. I love walking, running and wildlife. We both enjoy reading. So, Uist is just perfect for us.

During your stay

We live and work on the mainland but are very happy to answer any questions before you arrive. I always phone on the evening after the guest arrives anyway. This gives you time to settle in and think of anything you might want to ask.
