Carnish Cabin Ebb
A stylish and contemporary beach cabin for two, beautifully positioned a mere pebble-skim away from the white sandy shores of Uig Bay.
One of Scotland's best-kept secrets, Uig Bay has been proudly designated as one of just 40 National Scenic Areas in the country.
You'll understand why just as soon as you arrive. The vast, paradise-like white sands seem virtually untouched, framed by rolling hills that will have you whipping out your camera phone as soon as the sun begins to set. Home to diverse wildlife including golden eagles, deer and otters, confirmed nature lovers will be in their element here, too.
One of a pair of beautiful beach cabins set just a stone's throw from the bay, Ebb is all but guaranteed to captivate your senses, and is ideal for a couple who want to feel magically spirited away from life back home.
Sleek, chic, and boasting a gently curved ceiling, the cabin is decorated in fresh coastal style, with a relaxed open-plan space that means everything you need is easily to hand.
Curl up together on the sofa, positioned right in front of the huge bay-facing window, and listen to the tide rolling in and out (in the unlikely event that you tire of those spectacular views, there's also a TV to keep you occupied).
The designer kitchen area features an innovative, space-saving cooking island, with a built-in hob, microwave, and sink, with a romantic dining space positioned alongside it.
Meanwhile, your downy double bed faces both glass doors and a large picture window that will make you feel as though you're sleeping right on the sand, making for the most refreshing way to wake up. There's a convenient en-suite bathroom too, which features a bath with shower over.
Head outside to the deck with your morning coffee, and ease yourselves into the day ahead by immersing yourselves in more of that amazing, wildlife-steeped coastal scenery. There's a path that leads you straight down to the shore, just in case you feel like dipping your toes in the water!
Just 36 miles in length, and 12 miles wide, the Isle of Lewis is packed with things to see and do. The biggest town, Stornoway, is just the place to stock up on holiday provisions. While you're there, why not pay a visit to the 19th century Lews Castle, where the famous Lewis Chessmen are displayed?
You could also opt to take a wildlife boat trip from the harbour, from which you'll have the chance to spot puffins, sea eagles, and dolphins.
(Or, simply spend the day blissfully holed up in your stunning coastal cabin. The choice is completely yours!)
