More information about Taigh an Uillt

Property information

Taigh an Uillt is ideal for a family holiday and the dog is welcome too! Being just a very short walk from a lovely sandy beach means plenty of fun days for children and healthy romps for the 4 legged member of the family! This cottage is one of the closest to Riof Beach which is one of the finest in the Hebrides. However, this whole peninsula is just a wealth of white sandy beaches - each with their own distinctive character. Uig Sands are on a par with Luskentyre in Harris given the vast scale of the various beaches which form these sands. Riof Beach is a 10 minute walk away and is stunning - 2 miles of pure white shell sand. Cliff beach is well known to surfers.

The house is immaculately maintained by the neighbour/owner who is on hand if needed or to share local knowledge to enhance your stay. He wishes you to find a home from home with all the comforts you would expect. As an islander born and bred he can also tell you all the best places to walk, fish, eagle watch etc. Just ask!

There is a community shop which is very well stocked and also a community centre which houses a museum and cafe. Miavaig Harbour, where you can often buy freshly-landed shellfish from 'The Shellfish Shack' is a short drive away.

Stornoway is an hour drive and Harris just over an hour and a half but we are sure that , once here, you will not want to leave!

    March 2018 - 11 degrees and sunny and calm all day! Spent all afternoon on Riof Beach which has to be just about the most wonderful beach in the whole of the Hebrides. The sand is almost pure white and the sea a brilliant turquoise. The house is a home from home with everything you could need. It is one of the cleanest cottages I have stayed in - everything pristine. The Bhaltos area is fascinating and well rewards just wandering around. The loop walk all round the peninsula is worth doing if you get a good day. Definitely recommend. Watched a sea eagle for a while from the headland at Cliff beach.

    The bungalow was really clean and well presented. It was simple but with everything we needed. It was spacious, comfortable with lovely bathroom and kitchen. All the equipment was in good working order and seemed brand new. Also. John greeted us when we arrived and was really helpful and friendly. I loved the fact that each bedroom had a chair, tissues, lovely big wardrobe with nice hangers plus extra blankets if needed. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and appreciated returning each day after our walks and daytime visits around the island. We would not hesitate to recommend anyone to visit this property. We hope very much to return, in fact we were really sad to leave and wished we had booked to stay another week. We loved the peace and quiet, the sheep walking past the windows each day, the views, the short walks to what has to be the finest beaches in the world, the space … I would move in given half a chance !! I loved sitting at the kitchen table with the radio on looking at my guide books or doing a bit of sewing. It was superb.
