Sealladh Eabhal Grimsay North Uist Western Isles, Scotland

Sealladh Eabhal Grimsay North Uist Western Isles Family friendly Luxury Holiday Cottage for romantic breaks in Grimsay North Uist, Western Isles, Scotland


Sealladh Eabhal (Eaval View) is a luxury, traditional, self-catering cottage situated on the picturesque island of Grimsay in the Outer Hebrides. It is the perfect base from which to explore stunning white sandy beaches, machair and moorland.

Location:

Sealladh Eabhal lies on the north side of Grimsay island ideally situated between North Uist and Benbecula and forms part of a chain of islands linked by causeways in the 1960's. Before this, the journey by boat  between the islands was often an arduous one. Nearly every family had a boat as a mode of transport as well as a means to earn a living by fishing. Houses were built very close to the sea, often with their own jetties.

Nearby Benbecula (6mls) has an airport, various shops, bank, petrol station, garage, hospital, hotel bars, indoor swimming pool, restaurant and Chinese takeaway! Lochmaddy, the ferry port on North Uist, also has a tourist information office near the pier, arts centre and museum, outdoor centre offering abseiling, rock climbing, kayaking, diving.

Other activities include: hill and coast walking, guided otter and birdwatching walks, trout fishing, golf, riding, cycling and exploring the numerous archaeological sites. Popular boat trips leave from Kallin harbour to spot seals, possibly basking sharks, whales, porpoises, dolphins, eagles, and much more. The quality of the seafood from these islands is second to none, especially lobsters, prawns, scallops and crabs...try Kallin Shellfish for all local delicacies.

Accommodation:

Overlooking a pretty waterlily loch, named after its wild duck population (Loch nan Lach), this cosy cottage was built by my father and grandfather circa 1955 from local stone, which was broken with fire and water and transported by boat from a nearby island. With this amazing history, the cottage was rebuilt from the inside, keeping these four outer walls intact.

The newly renovated 3-bedroom accommodation sleeps six and comprises porch with original church pews, entrance hall with understair cupboard, living room with multi-fuel stove, which also provides hot water. There is electric central heating downstairs and panel heaters upstairs, if required, for light heating as the stove gets a bit too hot in summer.

The feature mantelpiece in the living room was once part of a shipwrecked beam of wood, brought to shore by my grandfather, originally to support the downstairs floor. This was salvaged and refurbished in his memory.

A bathroom and double bedroom are located downstairs and upstairs there is a double bedroom with ensuite toilet and wash-hand basin, also a twin-bedded room, all have beautiful views over loch, hill and sea.

There is a well-equipped, brand new kitchen/diner which opens onto a secluded patio with uninterrupted, wilderness moorland views. Enjoy beautiful sunsets in this tranquil space. The wonderful quality of the light, with no pollution, is a joy to behold. In winter, the night sky is ever changing, whether it's the black of night or bathed in moonlight, lit by the twinkling of a myriad stars or the Aurora Borealis in the northern skies, you'll want to come back for more.

Garden furniture and barbeque equipment are kept in the shed, which can also be used for storing outdoor equipment such as bicycles, fishing gear etc.

The upstairs landing is equipped with a computer desk and chair, overlooking a stunning loch view, Loch nan Lach (Loch of the Wild Ducks), with the backdrop of Eaval mountain and the hills of Ronay (Seal Island) with Cnoc Mor (Big Hill) in the foreground.

Additional Information:

Freesat TV with integral dvd player and DVDs, fm radio with CD player. Heating and utilities are included in the price. Towels and bedlinen are provided, (Egyptian cotton) and there is a hairdryer in each bedroom. Binoculars are provided for bird watching.

There is wood and peat supplied for the fire but we would ask you please to top up the wood for the next guests before your departure.

Children over 5yrs welcome. Wifi is available on request. Sorry we regret no pets and no smoking in the accommodation.
