The property has sublime coastal views and is just a short walk from the beach.

Phiddy Robertson of Galbraith, who is handling the sale said: “This property is in a simply beautiful setting, overlooking the white sands of Luskentyre Bay, over the sea to the hills beyond. It would be a wonderful family home on one of the most renowned coastlines in Scotland.”

Cairinis has two reception rooms and three bedrooms, providing spacious and well-presented accommodation, all on one level.

Cairinis is in a peaceful, unspoilt setting, surrounded by croft land and set back from the single track road that leads to the beach. The property, which was built by the current owner in 2008 on the site of a croft cottage, has a spacious, well-appointed interior designed to take advantage of the beautiful views and to fill the house with coastal light.

The plot extends to 0.2 acres (0.08 hectares) with a single detached garage and the garden, with lawns and flowering borders, is easily managed.

Cairinis is in the township of Luskentyre, a scattered settlement of crofts and cottages strung out along the exquisitely beautiful Luskentyre Bay. Frequently voted as one of the best beaches in the UK and a must-see destination in the world, the beach is on the west side of South Harris, the stunning blue of the sea set against the near white sandy beaches and with a backdrop of wide skies and the mountains of North Harris.

Cairinis is just a short walk from the beach, along the paths and tracks that crisscross the machair, the fertile low-lying ground along the coast which is abundant with wildflowers and birdlife.

The island of Lewis and Harris is in the Outer Hebrides and the largest island in Scotland. A place of diverse landscapes, fascinating history and a strong cultural heritage, the island is the ultimate get away from it all destination.
