The Smiddy at Burnside Croft, Berneray, Western Isles (Sleeps 1-2)

The Smiddy at Burnside Croft has been renovated to an extremely high standard, incorporating energy-saving technologies, and will provide a relaxing hideaway for up to two people, with stunning views across the machair.

Berneray is a small island famed for its spectacular golden beaches and colourful machair, with plenty to offer wildlife enthusiasts, walkers, canoeists or those simply in search of peace and quiet.

The accommodation is all on one level with category 2 (assisted) wheelchair access throughout.

Berneray lies in the Sound of Harris at the northern tip of the Uists and is connected to North Uist by a causeway. The island is three and a half miles at its longest, with a sweep of golden beach along its west coast described by Lonely Planet as “unparalleled in Scotland”.

During your stay at the Smiddy, explore the island on foot or by bicycle (we have cycles available for guests). Popular activities include birdwatching and other wildlife-spotting, kayaking, canoeing and windsurfing. Seals are very common on the rocky east coast, otters are sometimes spotted, and corncrakes and birds of prey are not uncommon.
