The Hebridean Islands have lots to offer the visitor with miles of unspoilt beaches, an abundance of wildlife, including many rare breeding birds, otters and seals and a rich variety of wild flowers and plants. South Uist is no exception.
Throughout the islands there are many historical and archaeological sites, which give testimony to the long history of The Hebrides.
Many of our guests choose to arrive by ferry at either Lochboisdale or Lochmaddy on North Uist, some choose to travel through the Islands arriving from Stornoway on Lewis or Tarbert on Harris. Other guests prefer the direct approach and arrive at Benbecula Airport and hire a car from there.
Trout fishing can be arranged on many of the lochs, some almost within casting distance of the house. The Islands are renowned world wide as some of Europes' finest fishing venues.
Play golf at ‘The Lost Course of Askernish’ in South Uist, where the original course was laid out by the renowned Victorian golf course architect ‘Old’ Tom Morris has been restored.
There is also a nine-hole course on Benbecula.
Sea-angling, kayaking, wind surfing, and boat trips to off-shore islands are available at various locations in the islands.
There are many moorland walks for all abilities, where you can enjoy perfect peace and solitude and an abundance of fresh air.
The islands are popular with cyclists and cycle hire can be arranged with cycle shop close to the house.
The natural light gives excellent conditions for photographers and artists.
