The house nestles under Ben Kenneth hill, and the patio doors from the dining room lead out to an outdoor seating area which looks out onto the bay of Lochboisdale. In addition, there is a front porch with seating available.

The house is well situated for hill-walking, bird-watching, botany, fishing and sightseeing. For those interested in golfing, there is a golf club at Askernish which, it was recently discovered, was originally designed by Tom Morris.

For those who wish to explore the identity of the Uists, there are many historical and cultural facilities. One such is Hallan at Daliburgh machair, where archaeologists have unearthed a number of roundhouses dating back to 2000BC, or the Kildonan Museum Centre where an archive of photos are available for those who wish to trace ancestors. The museum is also home to various artefacts indigenous to the island.

For those who wish to discover the more artistic side to the islands, there are a number of artists’ galleries dotted around the islands, and some of their work is showcased at Taigh Chearsabhagh, in Lochmaddy, North Uist.

There are plenty activities throughout the year, such as Cèolas at the beginning of July, where people can come together to learn how to play traditional instruments or sing traditional songs. You may wish to learn some Gaelic, if so, you will find many local people willing to let you practise on them!

The national Mod is in October with local areas hosting their own concerts related to the Mod. There are also various ceilidhs throughout the year, as well as Highland Games and Cattle shows during the summer months. If you are feeling particularly energetic you can put your name down for tossing the caber at the games, or alternatively, participate in the Ben Kenneth hill race which takes place the first Sunday of August. 

Whatever your preference, you are sure to find something of interest to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible.
