Taigh na Coille (The Forest House) is situated close to the beach and enjoys a panoramic outlook over the surrounding countryside and the sea. The property has cathedral-style windows in the main sitting room and a specially designed galleried landing to make the most of the lovely views.

Nicky Archibald, who is handling the sale of Taigh na Coille, said:

The Outer Hebrides have miles and miles of unspoilt sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. This amazing house offers a real island paradise for those seeking to get away from it all for a holiday or as their permanent home, with regular scheduled ferries and flights to Benbecula and Lewis making these islands easily accessible.

Taigh na Coille has spacious accommodation including an impressive open plan living area with double height ceiling and wood burning stove, four generous double bedrooms, and a large fully fitted dining kitchen. There are two shower rooms, a family bathroom and useful utility room as well as a seating area in the upstairs landing. Throughout the house there are lovely finishes such as wooden floors, solid hardwood doors and high-end fixtures and fittings, all combining to make an impressive and light-filled home.

The layout of the property lends itself to offering B & B accommodation, if the purchasers so desire.

Taigh na Coille is surrounded by grounds extending to over five acres, and there is scope for development, subject to the usual planning consents. To the rear of the house the garden is protected by the neighbouring forest and enjoys seclusion and privacy.

Also within the grounds is a stable for two horses with hay and feed store. A further outbuilding houses the wood-fired boiler with adjoining wood store.

North Uist is a beautiful Hebridean island with sweeping sandy beaches, a rocky foreshore, marshes with wildflowers and extensive sand dunes.

The island is known for its bird life, including corncrakes, Arctic terns, corn buntings, Manx shearwaters and the occasional owl or cuckoo. The RSPB has a nature reserve at Balranald and North Uist is also renowned for its trout and salmon fishing and otter spotting.
