This property is ideally located for a romantic break away, and benefits from a 2-person sauna and Jacuzzi bath.

In a truly unique location amid the spectacular scenery of the Island of Lewis and Harris in the Outer Hebrides, Beach Bay Cottage is nestled on the edge of the unspoilt white sands of Uig Bay, a National Scenic Area and one of the most beautiful beaches on Scotland’s Atlantic Coast. A stunning natural stone and turf roofed single-storey detached cottage built into the hillside reflecting an ancient neolithic design with breathtaking beach views, and with access to a family friendly beach less than 110 yards from the door. In a very secluded and magical location, Beach Bay Cottage and the surrounding area is a paradise for artists, photographers and bird-watchers. There are many outdoor activities nearby, such as hill walking, surfing, kite surfing, fishing (Apr-Oct, licence required), golf, wildlife watching, boat trips (including to the World Heritage Site of St Kilda), diving, sea kayaking and cycling. The landscape and history of the Outer Hebrides, together with the hospitality of its people, provide a wonderful escape from the pressures of modern life and offer an active or relaxing family holiday or the perfect romantic retreat. The holiday property benefits from a 2-person sauna as well as having a Jacuzzi bath in the en-suite of the twin bedroom. There is a whisky distillery within 550 yards and the local community shop is only 3 miles away. There is a community café within 10 minutes drive and the nearest restaurant is a 15 minute drive away.

The house, its facilities and the view are spectacular. However the location is isolated. The nearest store for supplies is 15 minutes drive and the major sites on Lewis are more than 45 minutes away. Stornaway the capital of Lewis is an hour's drive. A wonderful place to be away from it all.

The most amazing cottage and view. Exceptional quality sheets and towels and I do know they are replaced regularly. It may be an exceptional holiday let but the price is why it's been given a 5 out of 10 rating for vfm. We have just booked 3 weeks abroad to a hotel B and B including flights for the same as a week in the cottage. It's an amazing cottage but sadly the cost is going to be prohibitive on a soon to be retirement income for such a short break. We are glad we experienced it while we could afford it and would recommend the experience to anyone. It would be hard to beat. The owners are great and very helpful and my hat gets taken off to them for creating such a wonderful place to stay with unbeatable views.

We had a fantastic time at Beach Bay Cottage. The view out across Uig Sands is amazing and constantly changing. The cottage itself is very well equipped and all to a high standard. This is superb location for walking, sightseeing and spotting wildlife. One thing to bear in mind is there are just a few eating places around and about, so check what's open and when, that said the cottage is fantastic!
