House by the Sea

Situated on the east of the island, our traditional cottage overlooks Brevig Bay.

The "Leanish" Otters and seals are often seen from the windows and it is a bird watcher`s paradise. The sunsets and sunrises are truly magnificent, and in the winter months the Aurora Borealis can be seen.

The cottage has a large vaulted lounge with window seat that overlooks the water, a large kitchen, and three bedrooms.

Our cottage is available to rent between April and September.

About the location

The island is stunningly beautiful, with crystal clear blue water and numerous white sands beaches. It is a perfect location for hiking and biking, kayaking and fishing, and there are boat trips to uninhabited islands where you can see wildlife.

Castlebay, as it`s name suggests, has a castle in the bay which can be reached via a small boat. There are cafes and hotels which serve excellent local cuisine, and well stocked shops. The heritage museum, abandoned village and hill forts are of interest.
