Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Uig Lodge, Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, sleeps 10-17 in 8 bedrooms.
Amidst turquoise sea, white sand, dramatic mountains and shimmering lochs, Uig Lodge has one of the most spectacular positions in Scotland, overlooking the magnificent Uig Bay on the Isle of Lewis.
Built in 1876, Uig Lodge was later owned by Lord Leverhulme who bought the island in 1918. It was his niece, Emily Macdonald, who fell in love with the lodge, describing it as a “scene which surely has few equals in all Britain for sheer breathtaking loveliness”. She joked with her uncle saying, “If ever you think of selling Uig Lodge, give me first refusal”. Little did she know he would later give her the lodge as a wedding present.
Adored by many others since then, Uig Lodge has remained as a privately owned fishing lodge. Uig was also a favourite haven of the celebrated author, Arthur Ransome, and the breathtaking views are said to have inspired “Great Northern”, his last book of the Swallows and Amazons series.
Since 1981 Uig Lodge has been owned and loved by the Green family, who let it to parties looking for a unique and unforgettable Scottish holiday. Originally only let in the salmon fishing season from May to October, the lodge is now available for hire throughout the year, including Christmas and New Year.
Uig Lodge is a traditional and working sporting estate with a magnificent lodge reflecting this perfectly with a comfortable and homely atmosphere. The daily running of the lodge is overseen by the wonderful keeper, Kenny Mackay, whose family has been involved in Uig Lodge for over 50 years.
The landscape and history of Lewis, together with its interesting people and charming pace, provide an unbeatable family holiday or an escape from the stresses of modern life. Superb salmon and trout fishing, endless white sandy beaches, a spectacular private 9 hole golf course, amazing wildlife, incredible bird life, wonderful painting and photography opportunities...Uig Lodge really does have something to offer everyone.
Available to let weekly (Saturday to Saturday bookings) from £2,500 a week low season (self catering) or £6,705 high season (including a cook).
