  • "Perfect in every way, we will be back one day, hopefully the next time the wind isn’t quite so windy and we can get out on the water more next time."

    It was just an amazing area and place to stay. Thanks

  • "This was a lovely cottage in a fabulous location."

    There is a small harbour and a small beach right on the doorstep. Huge white sandy beaches close by. Our dog was in heaven and did not want to come home. We lucked out and the weather was gloriously sunny. Recently refurbished cottage would be comfortable any time however.

    Thank you for your positive review and that you and your dog had a good time. Best wishes Jane and Norman Property Owner

The property

Timsgearraidh 4.2 miles.

Settled into the seaside village of Miavaig, near Uig on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, you will find the quaint cottage of Taigh Tharmoid Ruaidh with enchanting scenic views.

For a family who loves nothing more than to feel the wild sea breeze on their skin and explore the unbroken countryside, this property will offer you a homely base for your adventure.

This Hebridean cottage can be let with its neighbouring property, 28 Bhaltos, or individually.

Arriving home windswept and refreshed from the great outdoors, flick on the kettle and discard your sandy boots in the amply equipped kitchen/diner, taking in the beautiful wooden furnishings that are a theme throughout this wonderful cottage.

When planning your day, take a seat in the first-floor sitting room and dig into one of the many books available whilst the woodburning stove encompasses the room in a relaxing glow, or why not test your musical skills with the piano available?

Blue hues accompany the décor, giving you an overall feeling of a seaside cottage and leading you to seek out the beautiful views just beyond the property.

Promising a remote family holiday, this cottage is fitted with a ground-floor bunk perfect for the children, and a super-king-size with storage and skylights, with one ground-floor shower room with all the home comforts you would desire.

There is no shortage of breath-taking views with this property, and sandy beach walks and hikes are available at your fingertips, perfect for a family walk or a kayaking.

Further afield you will find more bays to explore at the Bhaltos Peninsula and Mealista Beach, all with beautiful white sand and clear blue sea.

Close by you will find Uig, where you can visit Loch Croistean Café, when in need of a meal between adventures and you can also stock up on essentials.

Uig and Reef Bay are both within driving distance, offering large sandy beaches perfect for walks with your four-legged friend, watersports and even wild swimming.

There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen on the Isle of Lewis, ranging from ringed plovers and red squirrels to golden eagles and red deer.

If you fancy sampling local produce, the distillery at Abhainn Dearg offers tours and tasters.

Taigh Tharmoid Ruaidh makes a wonderful getaway for an adventure with the whole family.

The islands can be reached by flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness; or by ferry from Uig on Skye to Tarbert, or Ullapool to Stornoway.
