Welcome to Airidh an Dobhrain - our Secluded Cottage by the Lochside

Lakefront Cottage in Benbecula with fireplace
This cosy cottage sits right on the waters edge and is both remote and isolated, our only neighbours being the sea birds, seals and the occasional otter! It really is an ideal retreat, where you can escape the bustle of daily life and relax.
It is ideally placed right at the centre of the Outer Hebrides, so you can explore from Eriskay (with regular connections to Barra) to the south, to Berneray (with regular connections to Harris) to the North.
It was originally built as a shieling to house land workers, and is now a comfortable holiday retreat, with the added advantage of a log burning stove to snuggle up to after a long day out.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers fireplaces and DVD players. Fridges and microwaves are provided. Bathrooms include a shower.

5/5 Excellent

A perfect Hebridean getaway
The cottage was perfect for two. Very cosy and comfortable with excellent facilities. The location was ideal, tucked away on the edge of the world. Complete peace and quiet and surrounded by lochs and big skies. Also a great location to access all parts of the Uists, North and South.

5/5 Excellent

Great footage by the sea
Brilliant location by the sea. Perfectly located for visiting Benbecula and North and South Uist. Cottage was spotless, and everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Shower is especially brilliant. Can find no fault. Amazing wildlife literally as you open the back door
