Traditional Stone and Thatch Cottage on the Waters Edge With Beautiful sea Views

Adults-only cottage in Isle of North Uist
'Cnoc an Dudain' (the hill of Dudain) is situated on the beautiful island of Berneray, 'the jewell in the crown' of the western isles. This stone and thatched cottage (or 'blackhouse' as they are known on the islands) was rescued as a ruin in 2008. We have carefully renovated, using traditional materials. The rooms have limewashed walls, exposed roof timbers and solid wood floors. There is an efficient multi-fuel stove in the living room, and with 1. 3m thick stone walls, this cottage is the cosiest place to be on a blustry Hebridian afternoon. The cottage lies 150 meters down it's own drive and has ample space for parking. The walled garden area leads down to a small beach, with the remains of an old harbour wall still visible at low tide. Those of you with a keen interest in history can discover the hand carved 'crusie stone' built into the garden wall. Berneray is rich in archaeological sites, with a stone circle, standing stone, Viking harbour and chairstone to name but a few. You will wake up to the sound of seabirds, especially Oyster catcher, Curlew and Turnstones. Seals are very common and in summer will swim close to the cottage after dusk. Otters can also be seen fishing in the lochan at the back of the cottage (during the renovation we had regular visits from an otter one winter and he left his footprints in the wet concrete floor). With such a lot to see and do on and around Berneray, we have made a concious decision not to provide a television. Please come to enjoy the views, watch the wildlife and tune in to the cycle of the tides.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers an iron/ironing board. Kitchens offer fridges and hobs. Bathrooms include a shower.
