The islands of the Outer Hebrides hold many hidden secrets. We like to think our beautiful cottage, located on the secluded, rocky shore of Baigh a Chaise (Cheesebay), in the Northeast corner of the island of North Uist, is one of the best kept.
The romantic hideaway nestles against the hills at the head of a tidal inlet known locally as “the Strom”. Sitting on the wrap round veranda, guests will enjoy the beautiful, picturesque sunrise and sunset with views over the small islands of Hermetray, Bhacasaigh, Taghaigh, and Orasaigh and on across the Sound of Harris towards Roghadal with its famous 16th century church of Saint Clement.
Red deer stags and hinds will frequently be seen from your vacation lair on Crogearraidh na Thobha, the hill opposite, and may even pop in for breakfast while White Tailed eagles and Golden eagles can be spotted by sharp eyes, soaring overhead.
This area of the island boasts miles of idyllic coastal scenery as well as an abundance of flora and fauna. Laying back to rest weary legs and with eyes tightly closed, the silence will be broken only by the glorious sounds of nature happening all around you
Among so many interesting places to visit, keen explorers or historians will enjoy finding Dun Turcuill, one of the oldest Iron Age settlements on the island, only, as the eagle flies, 7.3km away
Just when you think life can’t get any better, as the night sky encroaches, lie back again and be marvelled by one of the clearest starry skies you will ever see.
A warm, North Uist, welcome awaits you here at Taigh Bathach. We are sure your first visit to the islands won’t be your last, as you store away a lifetime of wonderful memories from the Outer Hebrides
