The property

Lochmaddy 10 miles. Set on a working croft in Locheport, on the Isle of Uist, with an abundance of space and unbeatable views is this eco-friendly, pet-friendly lodge, North Light Studio. Perfect for a couple, solo traveller, or even friends sharing, this architect-designed, Scandinavian-style lodge is set in a breath-taking area, with a loch to gaze upon, superb facilities including a sauna, and peaceful surroundings. The glazing has been specifically designed to capture the views. The Northern Lights display have been seen from the mezzanine level. On a clear night the dark skies from this vantage point are mesmerising. Inside, find the open-plan living space, complete with a galley-style kitchen, with an induction hob for your cooking needs and hints of coherence including an orange tap, tying in with the exterior design. From here, the chairs double up as pull-out beds, allowing you to cosy up in front of the woodburning stove after dinner. Before bed, make your way to the shower room to rinse off a day of walking, or perhaps indulge in some time in the sauna. Completing the interior is a mezzanine with a built in platform double bed, inviting you to rest before a day of exploring the isle. In the morning when you wake, savour a cup of coffee out on the front decking and take in the fresh country air while you plan your day ahead. During the day, venture to Baleshare Beach, where you and your canine companion can stroll the white sand while admiring truly breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Avid anglers may want to explore the isle's freshwater fishing with permits available from North Uist Estate. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the island's wealth of walking activities, with the Hebridean Way nearby, as well as water sports such as kitesurfing, paddle boarding, wild swimming, kayaking, and even surfing, which is extremely popular at Hosta Beach. Those who want to see the unusual species that frequents North Uist can do so at the RSPB Nature Reserve at Balranald, or they can take part in the island tradition of boat journeys into the ocean to identify dolphins, orcas, porpoises, and otters! For a truly unforgettable trip choose. North Light Studio.

About the location


Balivanich 18 miles.

The village of Lochmaddy is the terminus for the daily ferry linking it to Uig on the Isle of Skye and it is also the main centre of population for the island of North Uist. Lochmaddy has good facilities and services including a selection of hotels serving fresh local produce in their dining rooms. A visit to the award-winning museum and arts centre located in the centre of Lochmaddy is a must, and there is also a tourist office full of information about local events and places to visit. The road south of Lochmaddy will lead you to the village of Carinish some 10 miles away and if you continue on this road you can cross the causeway to the island of Benbecula. The town of Balivanich in Benbecula offers shops, post office, a bank, restaurant, a petrol station and an airport, from which car hire can be arranged. The causeway from Benbecula then leads onward to the island of South Uist.

Note: Though electricity is included, charging for electric cars is not included in the rent. Note: Please bear in mind that this property is located on an island and therefore only accessible by plane or ferry.
