Loch View is a stunning, award winning, 3 bedroom, architect designed house. Sleeping 6 in 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom with a modern open plan living area, the house is set in a tranquil and remote location overlooking Loch na Muilne on Bernera.
The house won the best architect designed house in the Outer Hebrides Design Awards 2016, competing against houses built in 2014 and 15. It has also received press coverage, for example in the Scottish Sunday Post magazine and in Coast Magazine.
The site is framed by the loch in front of the house and the ridge behind, providing a picturesque setting and shelter from the weather. Golden eagles often nest half way up the ridge. As you walk up the site, the loch opens up, revealing its "H" shape and small island in the middle. We're told that in dry weather it's possible to walk to the island over stepping stones from the southerly bank.
The house is less than 1 mile from Bosta beach with its beautiful sandy beach and Iron Age house; we often walk there and back whilst the dinner cooks. There is a small shop with Post Office and community centre with a cafe in the nearest village about 1 mile away.
Bernera is on the west side of Lewis, surrounded by Loch Roag. It's joined to Lewis by a road bridge that was built in 1953. There is good access to the tourist attractions on the west coast of the island and around Uig. Stornoway and Tarbert are both a 40 minute drive.
