From the owner

Cuan Beag is a purpose built luxury Eco holiday home that sits very peacefully on the shores of sheltered Loch Treaslane (a subsidiary of Loch Snizort). There is a wealth of wildlife with Seals, Otters, Sea Eagles and many other birds frequenting the shoreline; and dolphins & porpoises have recently been seen swimming up the loch. Cuan Beag provides direct access to the shore for kayaks and small boats.

Cuan Beag's major asset is the bright and spacious open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area with strategically placed windows that give panoramic views of the loch and out towards the Outer Isles where the ferry can regularly be spotted in the distance arriving and leaving from Uig. The south facing decking area is a real suntrap even in winter sunshine. With an underfloor heating system throughout and individual room thermostats, the whole property is very comfortable; there is also a wood-burning stove for those cosy evenings.

Cuan Beag is as well suited to a romantic retreat for two as it is for a group of friends or family to relax and enjoy the surroundings. As with our first holiday let, (Moeraki) we have once again prioritised on quality key furnishings (in particular luxury mattresses, bedding and settees for your comfort at the end of the day) as well as carefully planning the layout of and fully equipping the kitchen to enable many creative dishes. Built-in appliances include a double oven with grill, separate Induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer as well as a coffee machine. In addition to the usual toaster and kettle, there is also a sandwich press, food processor with liquidizer along with weighing scales and other baking accessories, dishes and trays and a large range of kitchen utensils including good quality kitchen knives that are kept sharp.

The Master bedroom with its own door opening onto the south facing decking can be set up as a Super King size double bed or as two 3ft wide twin beds and has an en-suite bathroom with large walk-in rain shower. The second bedroom also has a large Super King size double bed and en-suite shower room. The third bedroom can be set up as either a Super King sized double or as two 3ft wide twin beds. This room has access to a luxury bathroom with modern free standing bath. Adjacent to the main entrance is a utility area where outdoor clothing and equipment can be stored and also located here is an additional sink, washing machine and tumble drier if required.

The large 55" Flat Screen HD TV has a "Sound Bar" and access to Freeview channels with an easily accessible HDMI port to connect to your own devices. There is also a Blu-Ray DVD Player and a selection of DVDs and a Hi-Fi System that conveniently connects via Bluetooth to your own devices. We also provide a selection of traditional games, cards and a wide selection of books, walking guides and maps; not forgetting a handy pair of binoculars to spot the wildlife through those windows!

This is a low allergen home, so we do not permit any pets or smoking. We regret that we are unable to safely provide a fire guard around the stove and therefore our insurance does not cover us for children aged 12 and under.
