From the owner

This large croft house stands on the edge of one of the most famous and impressive Atlantic beaches in the Hebrides, in the hamlet of Crowlista at the road's end. A Tripadvisor review of the Uig Sands says: 'This was one of the most beautiful areas I have ever seen. The beach is something else, but all of the surrounding areas are fabulous as well - the cliffs, the water, mountains. Truly amazing. ' Home to oyster catchers, curlews, greenshanks, golden plover, divers and golden eagles, the beach is full of history, bordered by a manse, a ruined broch, a graveyard, a lodge and salmon stream, and the dunes where the famous Uig chessmen were found.

With several secluded white beaches less than 3 miles in each direction, the surrounding area is a paradise for those who want to escape the pressures of a busy life for a family holiday or romantic retreat. Enjoy the sunshine and panoramic views of the beach and hills from the comfort of the large sun room, and then relax around the open fire in the cosy wood panelled living room. There is also a study with a desk and piano and woodburning stove, and the house has wireless internet and a large screen TV so you do not have to leave entertainment behind.

The 3 upstairs bedrooms have their own private bathrooms, two ensuite, and there is a fourth bedroom downstairs with cloakroom next door. The house is spacious and has retained the traditional wood panelling throughout, Victorian wall sconces for candlelit evenings and an open fire, enabling you to experience the atmosphere of a genuine crofting home combined with all the luxuries of modern living. The kitchen fully equipped with a Britannia range cooker (gas hob, 2 electric ovens), microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, and dining table that seats 8 comfortably. The living room has Freeview TV and DVD/Bluray player, HiFi with Ipod dock, 3 sofas to seat 8.

In front of the house there is a terrace where the barbeque can be used, and two large flower beds, and a lawn, with two stone lintel seats and a bench overlooking the bay. From the lawn a grassy path leads down to front gate, from where it is only a 200m walk to the beach.

At the back of the house, the kitchen looks across to the meadows behind the house out on to the Atlantic, and to the byre which used to house the cattle and sheep kept on the croft, but which has now been modernised and is separately rented out, but can also be made available at an additional charge to provide 2 extra bedrooms and an extra living space for guests. There is a gravel drive, and plenty of parking space on the drive, while byre guests park next to the road. Behind the house, open land leads to 3 lochs and a dramatic coastline with cliffs, sea birds, a special cove where we usually see seals, the remains of an iron age settlement, and 'Norse' mills in the streams.

There is an excellent shop for groceries a mile away at Timsgarry, and there is a community centre which hosts ceilidh dances and dinners at which visitors are warmly welcomed. It also houses a local history museum and a cafe which provides homemade soups and home-baked cakes throughout the day. There are also three other restaurants within 3 miles.

This is a fabulous place for walking, enjoying several white beaches, swimming, fishing, bird-watching, sailing, boat trips, and kite surfing.
