2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Uig, Isle of Lewis, Lewis and Harris, Outer Hebrides, The Hebrides, Scotland
Kneep Cottage is the ideal small family or couples getaway set in large gardens just a stones throw from a stunning and secluded white sand beach. From Easter to September the small village, set around 35 miles from the town of Stornoway (and about as far north and west as you can get in the UK) has a delightful laid back, holiday feel with boating and camping nearby and many beaches to choose from.

Or you can head to the hills for long days of walking, as far away from the city as you could hope for. The cottage is a colourful home-from- home and is well equipped with oil central heating and two multi-fuel stoves making it the ide... Read more

Our stay at Kneep Cottage was incredible and suited us and our Border Collie, Juno, down to the ground. This is our 6th visit to the Islands and Kneep Coaate was without doubt our all-time favourite cottage so far! From the moment we walked in...More

Fabulous cottage, very comfortable and in an idyllic location. Elly has thought of everything, definitely one of the best equipped cottages we have ever stayed in. The beach at the bottom of the garden is a little gem and a fantastic bonus - and very...More

About the neighborhood
If you are looking to get away from it all – escape the “Madding Crowd” - in a friendly tucked away community then Kneep Cottage is the place for you. As an area Uig is a bit of a secret, a beach and mountain rich region un-spoilt by mainstream tourism, and which many fall in love with, returning year after year for walking, outdoor adventures of just a bit of time to think.

Great for children, couples or small groups, the house, set in a acre of “machair” meadow, boasts private access to a white sand beach on a sheltered Atlantic bay dotted with tiny islands that can be easily reached by boat or kayak. Enjoy wildlife including seals, otters, eagles and rock-pool life as you enjoy a cup of coffee on the sand dunes at the bottom of t
