Padraig’s Cottage is a delightful, detached property, its sun room giving magnificent views of the Uist mountains. Set at the edge of Loch Roag, one of the best known fishing lochs in South Uist, it is a superb base for exploring the islands. The beautiful white sands of Howbeg beach are half a mile from the cottage and the spectacular machair runs parallel to the beach. It is a haven for wildlife such as the elusive corncrake, with hen harriers, seals, otters and golden eagles also regularly spotted. During the summer months the machair becomes an amazing mass of colour, peppered with a variety of wildflowers, including rare orchids.
Neighbouring Howmore (Tobha Mòr) is steeped in history with the remains of four or five churches and chapels still surviving. The islands from Eriskay to Berneray are linked by causeways, so travelling between them all is easy. You can catch ferries from Eriskay to Barra or from Berneray to Harris and Lewis for memorable days out. Benbecula has shops, pubs, restaurants, library, swimming pool - and the airport. It offers a stepping stone to North Uist, where in Lochmaddy, you can visit Taigh Chearsabhagh (an award-winning museum and arts centre) or the Uist Outdoor Centre where a wide range of activities including sea kayaking, diving and whale watching are available. Take boat trips out to the remote island of St Kilda and the Monach Isles. By road, visit the pretty island of Berneray. There are many historic and archaeological sites to explore, including The Bonnie Prince Charlie Trail, Trinity Temple at Carinish and Kildonan Museum. It is truly the most perfect location to unwind and enjoy the peaceful and scenic surroundings in this wonderful landscape. Beach ½ mile. Shops, pubs and restaurants 10 miles.
