Three Magnificient beaches on your doorstep!
Camas Uig (Uig Bay) is a National Scenic Area, one of only 40 in Scotland. The designation reflects the bay's status as an area of unsurpassed attractiveness which must be conserved as part of our national heritageand gives the beach international recognition as a Category V Protected Landscape in the IUCN's World List of Protected Areas.
Simply walk out of the front door and onto the beach!
It was on this beach that the world famous Lewis Chessmen were found, buried in the sandbanks, in 1841. The chess pieces are the most important Norse artefact in existence, and have been housed for more than a century and a half in the National Museum in Edinburgh and the British Museum in London. A giant 8 ft replica of one of the Kings has been installed on the machair by the road down to the beach at Ardroil, carved from wood by Stephen Hayward of Tain.
Just five minutes walk from The Lodge are two other beatiful beaches, Traigh a' Chidhe & Traigh Bhoisiadar. To reach them, it is requested to walk across the common land and not through the crofts. Simply cross the road and take a north westerly route in to the peninsula. Their are old dwellings are situated a few hundred yards from the road. The walk along the coast is beautiful. Remains of pier at Traigh a' Chidhe - built in 1820 - are evidence of the important of Carnais as a fishing village. Traigh Bhoisiadar is a good and safe beach for swimming.
