  • "Heatherlea was a great holiday venue and we would certainly use it again."

    R Houses ( Rural House) are a great Hebridean addition to the landscape and make for lovely open plan Scandi living. There were a few improvements we would suggest. 1. The bed linen and towels were not to the same high standard as they didn’t feel/smell fresh. This probably came from storing too long in the chest or storing unaired. In addition the bed sheet in the upstairs double didn’t fit the mattress well. 2. The upstairs double room door didn’t close fully as it’s too tight to the floor. Couldn’t have been a new problem. 3. Kitchen utensils were generally good but we needed more chopping boards . There was a single medium size cafetière which was not the best. Pls add some more ! Thanks Richard Pearce

The property

Lochmaddy 9.9 miles.

Resting in a fabulous, rural location in the township of Carinish on the Isle of North Uist on the Outer Hebrides is Heatherlea.

This wonderful dwelling benefits from a breath-taking location encompassed by truly exceptional views all around, a homely and warm interior where the woodburning stove forms the heart of the home and three beautifully-appointed bedrooms, perfect for friends, families or couples looking to explore rural Scotland with their beloved canine companions.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and head straight into the fully-equipped kitchen to help prepare delicious meals that the whole group can enjoy around the dining table.

In the evening, step outside to raise a toast to your getaway and reminisce on the cherished memories you have created while the rural island provides a magical backdrop; alternatively snuggle up on the plush sofa with your loved ones and flick on the Smart TV while your feet warm by the woodburning stove, there’s no better way to spend an evening after a day full of exploration!

When the sky darkens, head to the first floor to wash off the day’s adventures in the sleek bathroom before choosing between the king-size and twin bedroom, there is also a ground-floor king-size boasting its own en-suite wet room for convenience.

During the day explore all the Island has to offer by venturing to Baleshare Beach where you and your canine companion can stroll the white sand while admiring truly breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Outdoor enthusiasts will also be in their element as the island has an abundance of walking activities as well as water sports including kitesurfing, paddle boarding, wild swimming, kayaking or even surfing which is hugely popular at Hosta Beach.

Those looking to admire the rare wildlife frequently North Uist can do so from the RSPB Nature Reserve at Balranald or take boat trips into the ocean to spot dolphins, orcas, porpoises, and otters, which is an island tradition!

Adventure awaits at Heatherlea.

About the location


Balivanich 18 miles.

The village of Lochmaddy is the terminus for the daily ferry linking it to Uig on the Isle of Skye and it is also the main centre of population for the island of North Uist. Lochmaddy has good facilities and services including a selection of hotels serving fresh local produce in their dining rooms. A visit to the award-winning museum and arts centre located in the centre of Lochmaddy is a must, and there is also a tourist office full of information about local events and places to visit. The road south of Lochmaddy will lead you to the village of Carinish some 10 miles away and if you continue on this road you can cross the causeway to the island of Benbecula. The town of Balivanich in Benbecula offers shops, post office, a bank, restaurant, a petrol station and an airport, from which car hire can be arranged. The causeway from Benbecula then leads onward to the island of South Uist.

Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental. Note: Please bear in mind that this property is located on an island and therefore only accessible by plane or ferry.
