An t-Seann Dachaidhis a traditional 3-bedroomed croft house on the West side of
the Island of North Uist. It is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
It is approximately 18 miles from Lochmaddy along the A867 road and stands in its
own grounds enclosed by a walled garden.
The island of North Uistoffers superb scenery, which ranges from miles of white
sandy beaches to stretches of the most rugged, rocky coastline.
It is a land of great pictorial contrasts. There are hundreds of lochs watched over
by dark hills and endless stretches of the beautiful Machair pasturelands, famous
for their flowers, butterflies and birds.
Everywhere there are old crofts, bearing witness to a way of life sustained largely
for a millennium, but dramatically altered over the last century.
Hebridean life is dominated by the weather and the sea. The skies seem bigger than
anywhere else. Great banks of cloud roll in from the Atlantic, ever changing, producing
effects of light and colour of unmatched brilliance.
“ On a sunny day the scenery is particularly spectacular. To look over the Machair,
bedecked in a myriad of vibrant wild flowers, to the pristine white sands and to
the sparkling Atlantic beyond is to feel you are probably as close to heaven as mortality
