Beach Bay Cottage

Inspiration for the Cottage

 View from Living RoomThe inspiration to build Beach Bay Cottage was triggered when we fell in love with the plot of land in Carnish which looks over one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We wanted to do the site justice and reflect the vernacular of Uig which is part of a National Scenic Area.

We soon settled on a design heavily based on a traditional Lewis black-house merged with a Neolithic underground dwelling. George's grandfather was born and raised in a blackhouse for much of his life and they have always held a fascination for him. This, coupled with a meeting with our architect, saw us come up with the fantastic vision for the design that we've now built and you have a chance to stay in!

The cottage was designed by local architect, Stuart Bagshaw, who has establish a reputation for designing unique luxury cottages which incorporate the best of ancient and local designs, blending in with and reflecting the natural beauty of the area as well as carefully considering their environmental impact.  The cottage was build entirely by local tradesmen with a signifiacnt portion of locally sourced material.  It gave George and Lynda great pleasure to have Georges youngest brother, David Booth, help out with so much of the cottage joinery, and Lyndas Dad and Uncle, with all of the roofing and surrounding landscaping - a real family effort!
