The Area

The Area

The property overlooks the beautiful stunning views of the Machair, towards the sandy Reef shoreline and other small Islands within close proximity to the long sweeping white sands of Reef beach. The well stocked community shop in Uig is open 6 days a week and is just a 10 minute drive away. The expanse that is Uig sands and the stunning Uig Sands restaurant are both just a 15 minute drive away. Seatrek offer an array of boat trips and is just a few minutes drive from the property. Whilst you are there you can buy some scallops and some black pudding from the scallop shack that is located by the Sea Trek office and put your cooking skills to the test when you get back to the cottage (if you're a first timer - they're easier to cook than you think!)

Getting around

Getting around the island is by far easiest by car but for the more adventurous it is a great location to bring your bike too.
