Carra View House is set in the natural beauty of South Uist which is the second largest of the islands in the Western Isles measuring approx 22 miles north to south and 8 miles from west to east. The geography is divided into a series of north-south strips, each running the length of the island. The west coast faces onto the Atlantic and comprises around 20 miles of beach, broken only by a headland at the half-way point. Behind the beach is a strip of machair, or grassy duneland. East again is a strip containing a vast number of small fresh water lochans, and a series of dispersed crofting townships.
Carra View House is situated in one of the most beautiful locations to be found anywhere with wonderful views, lovely sunrises, sunsets, beach walks, phenominal wildlife and outstanding flora and fauna. Where else can you look out the window and spot the otters running over the beach and deer running wild. At the bottom of the garden are two lochs, one a sea loch and the other a fresh water loch both with wild fresh salmon.
The house is spacious, modern and comfortable with large rooms and sea loch views. For the ultimate Relaxing Holiday, Fishing Trip, Bird Watching Break, Painting Vacation, Golfing Break or Out and About Holiday you have reached the ideal base for all of the above.
