This lovely house is near the northernmost point of the Outer Hebrides. From the back, if you open and close 3 gates and cross a brook, a 20 minute walk west brings you to the Atlantic. There you will find ‘machair’ terrain, rolling sand dunes, and dramatic ancient rock formations. Also, many varieties of birds can be seen. You have access, some of which involves clambering, to 5 sandy beaches walking distance up and down the coast. The way marked walking trail goes in both directions. You can follow this to the right all the way to the light house. From the front door a 25 minute walk to the left brings you to the Port of Ness which faces the North Sea. I have painted a mural in the living room from my walks around the house.The local store is a few minutes walk to the right. The bus that stops there goes directly to Stornoway, which is about a 50 minute ride. Art Galleries, restaurants, museums, pubs, tea houses and local tweed companies are all within a 5 minute bus ride or 20 minute walk in either direction. The links for many are below.
Notes: There is a queen bed and 2 twins, 2 sofa beds and a large eat-in kitchen with seating for 6 and 2 baths. This house is very large and roomy! Sorry, we are not yet wheelchair accessible. There is a no smoking policy within the house.
