Uig is famous for its Machair, the area of close-cropped grass that runs down to white sandy beaches. In spring and summer, the Machair comes alive with a carpet of stunning wildflowers, from common primroses and violets in early spring to rare orchids and wild herbs in summer. Late summer also sees the purple Heather bloom on the mountains and moorland, a final blast of colour before the moors turn to gold, then brown as winter closes in.
Beach Bay Cottage is an ideal location for photographers, bird watchers, archaeologists and botanists, or those who appreciate beautiful surroundings. An ideal place to introduce your children to wildlife that they may only have seen on TV. An ideal honeymoon destination, or for romantic couples, maybe those looking to rekindle the flame of romance.
The peace, gentle tranquillity and stunning beauty that surrounds Beach Bay Cottage offers a warm welcome to all.
