Description from owner



Welcome to Airigh nam Fiadh (or the Deer Pasture), a newly built, luxury, eco friendly self catering house in West Gerinish, South Uist which sleeps 6 comfortably downstairs with the option to use the upstairs rooms to sleep a further 6/8 (please note however that bookings from small parties are very welcome and the majority of bookings are still from couples or small families). The house has been finished to an exceptional standard to offer you the highest quality of accommodation on your visit to South Uist.

Downstairs Airigh nam Fiadh has 2 double bedrooms (with en-suite shower rooms), a twin room with an adjacent family bathroom (with separate shower and whirlpool bath), a large open plan contemporary kitchen & dining area (with stunning views of the South Uist hills), utility room and living room with wonderful views of Loch Bee and the hills of Skye on a clear day. The house has underfloor heating throughout with a beautiful fireplace and multi fuel stove.

Guests also have the choice of booking the upstairs where there are a further 3 double rooms (2 of which are very large and one of which has a large en suite with separate bath and large shower). There is also another bathroom upstairs with separate bath and large shower.

Please note, if you book the downstairs only the upstairs will not be in use (i.e. you will always have the house and grounds to yourselves).

Airigh nam Fiadh provides the perfect setting for your holiday. The views are spectacular and the house is located by the shores of Loch Bee - perfect for fishing, bird watching, wind surfing, kayaking or simply taking a relaxing stroll by the water.

West Gerinish is situated to the north of South Uist and is a great base for visits throughout the islands. The house is a short drive from a sandy beach and the ocean. The village remains true to its crofting background with many of the locals keeping cattle and working the machair lands which make Uist so unique. Gaidhlig is the native tongue in the village and you'll no doubt pick up at least a few phrases by the end of your visit.

Airigh nam Fiadh is run almost exclusively on renewable energy. The house is well insulated and heated by a ground source heat pump with electricity supplied by a non intrusive small wind turbine on the owner's adjacent croft. Any power generated that's not used is fed to the grid.

Airigh nam Fiadh provides the perfect accommodation for a memorable visit to the islands!

Our second visit. A great place from which to explore the delights of the Uists. It's a lovely spacious, well equipped and appointed house, close to Loch Bee with a view from every window. Allan is very helpful and the perfect host. We enjoyed another splendid week walking in the hills, by the lochs and along the beaches with lots of wildlife to observe all around.
