The property

Seaview is a newly recently bungalow which sits on an elevated site overlooking the bay, which is noted for otters. Guests report sitting in the kitchen and watching the otters below on the rocks. The view is tranquil and beautiful, especially at high tide when the water glitters below the house or, first thing in the morning, as the sun rises across the sea and floods the bay with light. To the rear of the house is the sunny, south west, terrace with BBQ and outdoor dining table and benches. If you have travelled down from the Uists, through Eriskay, the house is just a few minutes drive from the ferry terminal at Ardmhor. If you are sailing into Castlebay it is approximately 20 minute drive and for those taking the flight of a lifetime and landing on the cockle shell beach, the airport is just a 10 minute drive. Whichever way you travel to this magical island you will find a very special place indeed. With white shell beaches, quiet roads, 'singing' seals on the rocks and a much slower pace of life than elsewhere, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in all that the Hebrides are famous for. Head down to the island of Vatersay, reached by causeway, or take a sailing to Mingulay, now uninhabited and a world renowned bird colony, with cliffs on a par with St Kilda. Castlebay, where the original Whisky Galore was filmed, is small but fascinating with the iconic Kisimul Castle out in the bay. There are shops, cafe's, and restaurants here and also a seafood outlet. Cycling around the island is a pleasure on such quiet roads and with jaw dropping views at almost every turn you will take plenty of stops en route! We recommend making one of them the airport, where one single room serves all purposes, the Baggage Collect is the bus shelter outside and security consists of checking the beach when the tide has gone out in case anything has washed up and would hinder the plane landing! On Friday nights you can go for Fish and Chips and 'take your own bottle' but, during the day, the home made cakes in the cafe are wonderful. Seaview is a very comfortable and well equipped house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, just perfect for friends sharing a holiday or families just wanting that extra degree of comfort and luxury. The owner's choice of colour reflects the turquoise sea and white sands and really does set the mood for an idyllic island holiday. On arrival you will find a lovely welcome including local produce and a beautifully presented box of home-made Hebridean tablet made by the owner's daughter. EPC Rating: Band F

About the location


Borve 3 miles; Earsairidh 3 miles; Eoligarry 9.5 miles.

Castlebay is a quaint seaside town resting between Allasdale and Earsairidh on the Isle of Barra, Scotland. The village is best known for the incredible Kisimul Castle sitting out in the bay and surrounded by water when the tide comes in, it also offers a selection of attractions including a beach airport where planes land directly onto the sand! The wildlife is simply stunning, with seals and otters relaxing in the bay. Dining options include the array of fresh fish and local cafes and bars, for example the Castlebay Bar and why not stock up on essentials at the local convenience store? Just outside of the town you will find the village of Allasdale, where there are stretches of beautiful sandy beaches, perfect for walking, swimming, and picnics. The Isle of Barra is also a great spot for cycling, with stretches of long, quiet roads and spectacular scenery along the way.
