General: 

  • The name, Broad Reach, is a sailing term to describe one of the fastest points of sailing, when the wind comes from just abaft the beam. The orientation of the house is also set thus against the south from where the strongest winter gales can come. (Like harnessing the natural energy when sailing, the triple glazing and high insulation spec make the house highly energy efficient.)  It also suggests the very wide panorama from the head of Lochbay in a sweep round to the far outlines of the Outer Hebridean isles from North Uist to south Harris.
  • The construction is a passive house style and incorporates an advanced design air recovery unit  with in-line heater.  The high insulation makes it a very quiet, peaceful house too.
  • We ask visitors to respect the no smoking policy inside the house.
  • Sorry, but no pets.

Tariff: Prices range from £800 to £1300 per week depending on season and numbers of people. Shorter stays (minimum three night) are available in late autumn/winter.   For details of our Tariff prices please visit our Contact and Booking Page
