It is both spacious and well equipped and is the perfect choice for couples or families wanting to 'get away from it all' and explore the wild and beautiful islands of the Outer Hebrides. It offers a setting in which to relax and appreciate the tranquility of island atmosphere and is only 5 mins from the beautiful beach of Bosta, which sites a reconstructed, fully working Iron Age house and a Marcus Vergette art installation, The Time & Tide bell. The house is located in a stunning setting and to make the most of this, the living room and kitchen have been positioned looking out to sea, patio doors lead out from the living room onto a large decked area which is furnished with a table and chairs so you can relax while making the most of the view. Some extra touches have been added to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your stay. An aga stove is in the living room making sure the house is nice and cosy. All beds are fitted with Kaymed spinal support mattresses aiming to reduce any pressure from build up leading to neck, back and joint pains during sleep. The house has been built with 'Supawall' insulation and is very eco friendly. The bathroom has a whirlpool bath with 21 jets (base, side, back and reflexology and 7 colours). The bath has a directional flow valve allowing you to isolate various jets to help relaxation and focus in on certain problematic areas of the body... just the thing at the end of a tiring day exploring the islands! If you enjoy spending time outdoors, we have 4 bikes available so you can explore the island keeping fit at the same time. We also have fishing rods and can direct you to local lochs where you may be lucky enough to catch a fish or two. More
