Description

Uiginish Lodge is a much-loved family house and the fulfilment of a dream for its owner, who completely renovated it to create a light-filled space with wooden floors, antique furniture and modern art. It was built in the 18th century as the dower house of Dunvegan Castle, which explains its fantastic position, directly across the loch from the Castle.

The Lodge is a spacious house over three floors which can accommodate 12 people very comfortably in six large bedrooms (with two huge shared bathrooms). It has an open kitchen-dining-sitting room the full width of the house looking over the lawn to Loch Dunvegan, with kitchen one end and wood burning stove the other.
Leading from the kitchen, the snug offers a separate place to curl up and read or watch TV, and in the large hall there is a (electric) baby grand piano. Upstairs there is a further sitting area, and a quiet and well stocked library on the top floor – both open plan and reached by the house wifi – and both with stunning views of Loch Dunvegan, the village and the Castle. The annex contains an extra bathroom, utility room and a games room with table tennis and table football.

Uiginish Lodge is surrounded by three acres of its own ground, including a beautiful mossy lawn at the front facing the sea, and behind the house a rugged garden with a ruinous old dovecote, and a stream. Livestock from the adjacent farm has access to the rear garden, but not the lawn! At the end of the lawn is a stile to an open paddock with sheep, and the shore.

The house is at the very end of a single-track dead-end road, past Uiginish Farm. Beyond and surrounding the house is open country, close cropped by sheep, studded with rocky outcrops, including the magnificent Uiginish Bonnet.
The end of the peninsula feels like the edge of the world, marked by the lighthouse at Uiginish Point. From the house there are views of the Cuillins and MacLeod's Tables, and from near the house, the Outer Hebrides can be seen on a clear day.
The sea is never more than a few moments away, with no need to get in a car to go for a spectacular walk. The water is crystal clear (and cold!) and there is a population of seals – best visited in a small boat from the Castle. Take a look at the Gallery to see for yourself just how wonderful this quiet piece of paradise really is and please get in touch if you would like to make an enquiry.
