Set in a simply breathtaking position on the Isle of Lewis, this sizeable Scottish property overlooks white sands, water and undulating island landscapes.

This island hideaway, sleeping 15 guests across eight bedrooms, is set on a traditional sporting estate on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. In one of the most spectacular positions in Britain, it’s surrounded by sand, sea and mountains, with breathtaking views over the pristine white sands of Uig Bay to the west, and the dramatic hills of Harris to the south. It’s the perfect spot for a group of friends or an extended family to gather for intimate parties, while also exploring this wonderful island.

Step inside this characterful retreat where country-style decor reflects its sporting history with an extremely comfortable and welcoming living space. It’s been refurbished recently to offer a relaxed, unstuffy ambience for guests, from the inviting tartan carpets and curtains to the fresh and bright contemporary touches in the bedrooms and bathrooms. There’s also a handy utility and boot room, the ideal place for macs and sports gear after a long hike. And the views from the property are truly memorable, with arguably the most magical sunsets you’ll ever see, great for those holiday snaps.

Rustle up family feasts in the well-equipped kitchen on the ground floor; with its Range cooker, fridge freezer, breakfast table, and two dishwashers, it’s spacious enough to cook for large numbers. There’s a separate formal dining room where your hungry brood can tuck into delicious homemade meals. Enjoy banter and a wee dram in the living room by the open fire, or curl up with a good book in the snug.

When the night draws in, you’ll all appreciate the super comfortable bedrooms with the sound of the sea to inspire slumber. There are four twin bedrooms, three double bedrooms with en-suites, and a single bedroom, plus two contemporary family bathrooms.

Outside, there’s a private garden where you can all relax and enjoy the magical setting. You’re in a very rural spot here which is wonderful for wildlife-watching and taking bracing walks in the elements.

This island hideaway is packed with outdoor adventures for sporty guests and nature lovers. From your doorstep, you'll find unspoilt beaches within walking distance, and glassy lochs and majestic mountains further afield to inspire great group adventures. Splash about and swim in the sea, go fishing for wild brown trout on the rivers and lochs – Loch Suainaval and Loch Grunavat are within 7 miles – or take a leisurely stroll and breathe in the pure air and easy pace of this enchanting corner of Alba.

Discover the fascinating history of the island at the small yet mighty Uig museum in Timsgarry (1 mile) where you can enjoy a cup of tea, shop, hear historic tales and learn about ancient customs and historic dress. You can also learn about the renowned Lewis chessmen – several 12th-century chess pieces found on a local beach with past links to Norway.

Embark on a marine safari from the pontoon at Miavaig (8 miles) which heads out on Loch Roag where you can spot otters, seals, sea eagles, herons, and mighty formations of sea stacks and sea caves. Discover more of the island's fascinating history with a trip to the Stones of Callanish (21 miles), an intriguing Neolithic stone circle which predates Stonehenge. And visit the tweed mill in Garenin (28 miles) where pure wool is dyed and spun on looms to create the highly regarded Harris tweed.

Due to the property's remote location, you'll be glad to find an enterprising community-run shop, cafe and village amenities in Timsgarry (1 mile) where a friendly welcome awaits. Further shops, pubs and amenities can also be found in Stornoway (33 miles).

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
