Idyllic thatched cottage wonderfully situated on the shore of the beautiful island of Berneray, off North Uist, in the Outer Hebrides. Fall asleep to the sound of waves gently lapping the rocks and wake to the sound of gulls and oyster-catchers, the playful splashing of seals and possibly an otter sighting.
The cottage is superbly equipped and furnishings and decor are of the highest standard. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. Perfect if you are looking for a remote, 'elemental' holiday with bracing walks on vast, unspoilt beaches, eagle watching, hill-walking or fishing - or just being cosy and quiet by the peat-burning stove! Berneray is a lovely, welcoming island and this is a perfect base for exploring the island's beaches, machair, hills and archaeological sites. Just across the permanent causeway is North Uist, with many more stunning, white-sandy beaches, turquoise seas, lochs, hills and history.
Shop at the Ardmaree Stores attached to the Lobster Pot tea-room on the island or at the Lochmaddy Stores, or the Co-op at Sollas, North Uist , twenty minutes drive away. Pick up great sea-food at Kallin on Grimsay. There is an impressive national RSPB nature reserve and a St Kilda viewing point over the causeway on North Uist. The Aurora Borealis are frequently seen from the islands.
