Location

Situated in a quiet location away from the main road this large comfortable house is an ideal base for exploring the Uists and Eriskay. South Uist is linked to both Eriskay (in the South) and North Uist, by causeways.  With rugged hills, spectacular wildflower displays on the machair, and stunning white shell beaches the islands are a photographers paradise.

Closer to home, strolling along a heathland path takes you to a nearby restaurant which serves good evening meals. Alternatively, a short drive will offer you a choice of three further restaurants.
