The cottage is situated right on the bay with stunning views of land and sea. It is walking distance from some fishing hot spots as well as the local craft shop (seasonal openings). Wonderful scenic walks can be taken from the house, where you can view some of the island's heritage, such as the remains of old croft houses as well as beautiful walks out towards the sea.
