Breanish

The Isle of Lewis has so much to offer you, whether you are interested in fishing, hill walking, island history or just simply to recharge your batteries.

Uig is an area of Lewis which offers incredible natural beauty with its rugged Atlantic coastline and golden sandy beaches. Nowhere are these breathtaking views more apparent than Breanish, the last village in Uig, situated 45 miles from Stornoway the main town in Lewis.

We extend to all a warm welcome to our 4 star self-catering cottage - Ocean View. The accommodation sits on a three-acre croft with direct access to the rocky coastline of the Atlantic Ocean, viewed from the rear of the cottage.

'Mealashal', which at 1885ft high, is the highest peak in Lewis and a challenge to any visitor interested in hill walking, dominates the view from the front of the cottage.

Ocean View offers a very private location with ample area round the property. It is neatly landscaped with paving, plants and shrubs, a patio area with garden table, parasol, chairs and bench - all you need to enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the summer sunshine.

Uig has some of the most beautiful beaches in the Western Isles, and Breanish is no exception. Just a five-minute walk from Ocean View lies an idyllic little beach, 'Mealasta Beach'. With golden sand and aquamarine waters, it is truly picturesque.
