Lingeigh is a Visit Scotland 4 star graded bungalow overlooking the sea to the island of Lingeigh and Barra beyond.
The Polochar Inn with restaurant and bar, open to the public, is just a 5 minute walk from the house.
The sandy beach is below the house and stretches round a headland to the amazing Garrynamonie machair and beach, a vast expanse of sand and dunes.
The machair runs parallel to the beach and is ideal for walking.
It is a haven for wildlife, such as the elusive corncrake and in the summer months the machair is peppered with an assorted variety of wildflowers, including rare orchids, Scottish bluebells and bog cotton.
There is a supermarket 10 minute drive, a cafe 5 minute drive and the Island of Eriskay is just a 15 minute drive.
Cyclists will find that this stunning corner of South Uist is a lattice of quiet single track lanes which weave their way through the crofting communities and along the shore.
This is the chance to step back in time to a less hurried, relaxing and tranquil lifestyle and Lingeigh is the perfect house to enjoy this atmosphere.
Mornings and evenings see short-eared owls hunting in the machair and farmland surrounding the house and their beautiful swooping and diving acrobatics are a pleasure to watch - all from the comfort of the sitting room!
The beaches of South Uist are invariably quiet and you may well find yourself the only occupants. Beachcombing for shells and driftwood can be rewarding, especially after a storm.
The house is suitable for families, those with pets, couples and friends. In fact, it is hard to imagine who would not find it a relaxing and accommodating house for a truly Hebridean holiday.
The islands can be reached by flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness; or by ferry from Uig on Skye to Lochmaddy, or Oban to Lochboisdale.
Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location
DALIBURGH, ISLE OF SOUTH UIST
Lochboisdale 3 miles; Ludag, 6.2 miles; Benbecula 24.8 miles.
Daliburgh is a town on South Uist in the Outer Hebrides and is known for being a crofting town. There is a memorial here to commemorate the life and works of Donald Allan MacDonald, a Gaelic poet who lived in Daliburgh in the mid 20th century. It is a great base from which to explore a fantastic selection of activities from fishing and walking to diving and birdwatching. The nearby Askernish Golf Course is always popular and was originally designed by ‘Old’ Tom Morris and is popular with golfers keen to test themselves on this challenging course. Dining options include fish and chips from the Burnside Chip Shop or for something a little more fancy dine in at the Borrodale Hotel. While you are in Daliburgh you can stock up on supplies at the supermarket and there is also a number of other shops including gifts shops. A short distance from Daliburgh is the fascinating Kildonan Museum and the birthplace of Flora MacDonald as well as a host of fabulous beaches just waiting to be discovered.
