The chalets are fitted with modern appliances and a WIFI connection is also available. This is a truly inspirational place for all the family to enjoy their holiday and to return home with unforgettable memories of these magical Hebridean Isles. The chalet has an adjacent dog kennel and separate outhouse, which provides washing and drying facilities. Separate parking is available directly outside the chalets, with sufficient space for several vehicles. A licensed local shop, and petrol station, is conveniently situated within a short drive or 15 minute walk. The shop offers an extensive range of groceries and fresh daily produce. In addition, the shop complex features a hairdressing salon and small cafeteria. As an additional attraction, guests will be able to enjoy the benefits of a well-fitted sheiling (bothy) called ‘Airidh Nisreabhal’, which is the Gaelic name for the nearby hill and loch situated in this majestic location. It is conveniently placed en-route to the famous and mystical ‘Callanish stones’ and is just a short 3 minute drive from the chalets. The sheiling provides an excellent vantage point for bird watchers and hillwalkers, or, alternatively, a place of tranquility and relaxation for surfers, fishermen, businessmen, honeymooners and indeed anyone else who would like to enjoy the peaceful island country life. Wildlife such as golden eagles and deer are frequently spotted in the surrounding hills and moorland. On beautiful summer evenings, holidaymakers who have boating and fishing interests can enjoy peaceful and scenic boat trips on a selection of nearby lochs. Guests are able to relax and enjoy refreshments whilst absorbing the magnificent scenery or witnessing some of the most glorious sunsets to be seen anywhere in the world. Enjoying a barbecue or picnic on the large decking area overlooking the surrounding lochs and hills may enhance the experience further. Pets are welcome and a kennel is provided. There is also an extensive parking area beside the sheiling. The Chalet is fitted with an Electricity meter which can be topped up at the local shop 1.5 miles away.More
