Holiday Rental House
Enjoy some time out at this relaxing holiday cottage in the beautiful island of Eriskay - sleeping 6 -7, it's set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. For the ideal island getaway Ben Scrien Cottage is a recently restored traditional croft house, comfortably furnished and fitted with everything you need for the perfect Hebridean Holiday. We keep our Eriskay Ponies close to the cottage throughout the summer while the rest of the herd are up in the hill 'Ben Scrien' until October. The private garden offers lovely views of the island. White sandy beaches, the local shop Co Chomunn Eirisgeidh and Am Politician Bar & Restaurant are within walking distance. A short drive over the causeway takes you into South Uist or if you fancy travelling on to Barra the ferry terminal is within close ...Enjoy some time out at this relaxing holiday cottage in the beautiful island of Eriskay - sleeping 6 -7, it's set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
