Riof Beach

Wildflowers paint the *Machair from early spring through the summer, offering a carpet of colour that even the sheep are hard pressed to crop. Sitting quietly outside it isn't unusual to see Eagles soaring on the air currents, the islands are home to many species of rare birds. Corncrakes are still to be found in Uig, their grating call far removed from the song of the Skylarks that soar high overhead. Rare Sea Eagles are now mating on Lewis and Harris, re-introduced to the UK from Norway these magnificent birds are thought to be the successful result of the breeding programme.

This stunning beach house provides an ideal base to call home whilst exploring the Islands.
