The property

Lochmaddy 16 miles.

St Kilda is a detached cottage situated on a working croft farm in a rural location on the magical Isle of North Uist.

The cottage has bright and spacious accommodation which is mostly set across the ground floor.

There is a country-style farmhouse kitchen which is very well-equipped with an American-style fridge/freezer, range oven for preparing delicious home-cooked meals and laundry facilities.

There is also a dining area in this room.

The comfortable and spacious sitting room has an impressive fireplace housing an open peat fire for those evenings indoors after a long walk out and about with a relaxing glass of wine.

The three bedrooms, two doubles and a twin room are also on the ground floor along with a bathroom.

On the first floor you will find a large family/dining room which has an extensive library of sporting and fishing books and board games along with a Smart tv and a leather sofa to relax in whilst either reading a good book or watching your favourite tv program, a Star Gazer telescope and Velux windows which provide fantastic views across the Balranald RSBP nature reserve and lochs with duns and ancient archaeological sites.

The cottage is set within 10-acres of grounds with views of open farmland, hills and the sea while St Kilda Island is clearly visible in the distance.

Situated just 3/4 of a mile from a series of sweeping horseshoe-shaped white coral sandy bays, this is a fabulous location.

With a mostly flat landscape, North Uist offers thousands of lochs with an excellent fishing loch being just 300 yards from the property, this is the perfect location for fishing enthusiasts.

A few other great activities you can enjoy whilst on your holiday include St Kilda cruises, bird watching, golf and salmon/sea trout fishing.

St Kilda is the ideal choice for a rural and relaxing retreat in an untouched location.
