Great Property In A Stunning Location
Great property in a stunning location, we would highly recommend. Great views from every window. All the mod cons and comfort you may need. The beaches around the islands are stunning. The only downside we found was no fire irons to clean the log burner.
Beautiful house with stunning views. Very warm ,comfortable and well equipped.
Easy to book
A wonderful house on an amazing island.
I’d highly recommend this modern cottage. Very neat, clean and tidy with great views. Loads of wildlife in the area. 20mins walk from either side of the island.
Stunning property in a beautiful location
What a base for our holiday. Views from every corner. Comfort and Convenience abound. We had a lucky week with the weather as a result this property and Berneray shone. Short stroll from a World Class beach, geese casually chilling in the garden, evening visit from local horses, lambs gambling in the fields and beautiful Sunsets views from the sofa.
Kids also loved the play frame!
Only tips would be
1. Cutlery is in a secret drawer under the hob (wasted a good 15 minutes going 'surely there is cutlery?'
2. Bring a window cleaning kit. The views demand it. Yes sounds nuts but you will thank me later!
3. Read the arrival instructions before setting foot in Berneray or risk driving about aimlessly before heading to the Post Office for emergency WiFi!
Slight issue with house WiFi which was resolved speedily through text.
Couldn't fault our stay .

Thank you for letting your amazing home to us
Berneray, from Norse meaning ‘Bjorn’s Island’ or ‘Bear Island’ sits in the Sound of Harris. With a population of 130 people, this gem of an island is linked to North Uist by a causeway opened in 1999, and provides the ferry link to Harris.
Berneray offers a perfect opportunity to relax and take in some of the best of the natural habitats and marine life that the UK has to offer. The beaches are second to none with their white sands and crystal clear waters; the West Beach extends to some 3 miles of unspoilt white sands and dunes, with extensive machair beyond; whilst the East Beach, facing into the Sound of Harris, is crescent shaped and again backed by dunes.
The island also hosts a resident seal colony that can be seen resting up in the east harbour, or occasionally from the west beach. There are also sea otters on Berneray, although time and patience will be required to catch a glimpse!
The continuation of working crofts on the island has also encouraged a variety of bird habitats and throughout the summer you will sometimes hear snipes and corncrakes. Loch Brusda hosts mute swans and greylag geese can be seen on the machair, with the opportunity of a rare view of sea eagles. Wading birds along the beaches include oyster catchers, redshanks, herons and many more.
There are way-marked walks around the island which will take you over the machair, with detours to the beaches, or to the peak of Beinn Shleibhe which offers a panorama over Bernerary itself and beyond to the Atlantic and St Kilda, Pabbay, Harris, North Uist and Skye with the Cuillin Ridge as a backdrop – well worth the effort!
