The property

Airigh nam Fiadh eco credentials, are excellent, with a ground source heat pump and wind turbine providing most of the energy. Located close to Loch Bee, the largest on South Uist, it is abundant with birdlife which include sightings of Scaup, Spotted redshank, Curlew Sandpiper and Ring-necked Duck. Here there is also small herd of Shetland ponies which graze on the shores and can be seen swimming to the small island to reach the greener grass. Stepping inside the house it is spacious and incredibly comfortable with a generous social space. Ideal for families or groups of friends throughout the year. Whether you are looking for comfortable evenings round the wood burning stove or gathered around the dining table sharing stories. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped, and spacious, enabling the opportunity to prepare some of the glorious seafood and fish which can be sourced locally. Stretching along, almost all, of the western side of South Uist is a huge expanse of white sand. This is bordered by sand dunes this area called the Machair blooms with wildflowers from May – September . It has been formed from lime-rich shell sand washed up thousands of years ago by the sea, and eroded from dunes by powerful winds, spreading the sand well inland. Being close to the causeway across to Benbecula places the house so central in the Uists that you can easily tour the entire length and breadth of these stunning islands - all connected by causeways so no need to take a ferry unless you want to head across to Barra for a day trip. The islands are a paradise for birdwatchers, wildlife enthusiast and winter visitors hoping for a show of spectacular Northern Lights. 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. EPC Rating: Band B
