Balranald Cottage is a former 'Black House' which was originally built around 1885. It has since been converted into a modern property which is a perfect base for visitors to explore the Outer Hebrides.
Within the RSPB's nature reserve, our guests often comment on the wide variety of wildlife from the cottage windows. corncrake, short eared owls, hen harriers, kestrels and golden eagles have all been seen!

The space
Balranald Cottage sleeps 4 guests with a generous double bedroom and en-suite shower room and a twin bedroom, with adjoining family bathroom.

The extensive open-plan living room has windows looking out towards Balranald House, with a raised dining area with table and chairs for six, a spacious sitting area with a large sofa and a multi fuel fire.

Beyond the living room is a large south-facing sun room, with large windows providing a wonderful panorama of white sands, a huge marsh and wetland SSSI, traditional small-scale machair farming and the Balranald nature reserve.

Other things to note
We look for a minimum of a week stay commencing Saturday. However, if you do require a shorter stay then please contact me and we will do our best to accommodate.

There is a coal burning stove in the living room. However, if guests wish to use this we kindly ask you use smokeless fuel which can be bought from Bayhead shop/ Sollas Co-op.

Please note that there is a 'Pay as you Go' power meter installed at the cottage. There will be £20/wk on the meter on arrival which under normal usage is plenty!
