Beacon Light is a large stunning grand designs type house built on 3 levels with an architectural glass and granite addition to an original Dualchas designed house. The new part of the house has 2 glass walls and 2 granite walls with corridors that have glass ceilings to let the light filter into them with stunning lighting. The way the granite and glass house is joined to the original Dulchas house is a feature and a very clever design by the architect. The house has underfloor heating in every room with the floors being stone tile or oak.

Built to a very high specification over a sea loch in North Uist the house has 4 bedrooms 3 Bathrooms with two large lounges which includes a TV and Hwam wood/peat burning stove in each. The kitchen has been equipped to a very high standard with a Smeg 6 burner range granite surfaces and centre isle with a built in fridge and dishwasher.

All linen is Egyptian Cotton and duvets and pillows are goose/duck down. In the original living area there is a Bose I Pod docking station, a panosonic music system a DVD player and a library of 800 books and local maps.. The full picture windows bring the landscape into the house and allow you to see the rare and abundant wild life from the kitchen, dining room 2 lounges and bedrooms. 

Otters and Seals are regularly seen swimming in the loch 10 metres from the house and it is not unusual for Red Deer to swim across the loch in front of the house. The two photographs ion the web site are taken from the garden by guests who saw the stags swimming across the loch and the otter eating a crab on the shore iof the house. North and South Uist are a haven for bird life with c. 20 pairs of Nesting Golden Eagles and 5 pairs of Sea Eagles ---there is an eyrie opposite the house.  Sea Eagles on frequent occasions spend a couple of hours on a rock across the loch , and Hen Harriers and Golden Eagles are seen hunting regularly around the garden. There is a telescope to view all the wild life from the house..

The numerous breathtaking beaches are within a 15 minute drive--- they are quiet with white sand and fantastic different colours in the sea  The Machair which is a carpet of colourful flowers in spring follows the coast which is a haven of fairly rare birds including the Corn Crake and Short Eared Owl,

The Outer Hebrides climate is influenced by the gulf stream and in the winter there is rarely snow or frost. November and February weather can often be surprisingly good.  The rut is normally in October and there is considerable activity to be seen across the loch. The house is very well insulated and the peat burning stove and underfloor heating make it a very warm place to enjoy the spectacular environment all the year round.

The Northern Lights are a fairly frequent sight from October onwards and shots taken near the house are to be seen on Redkingphoto.com Visitors to the house so far have been amazed about what the Island has to offer for a holiday having previously been to Harris and Lewis and if you have enjoyed those two destinations you will really enjoy North Uist and its surrounds.
