Eight Askernish is an authentic early 20thC Hebridean crofter’s cottage, renovated and maintained to 21stC requirements.

Accommodation is for up to four (plus infants) in two bedrooms – one double and one twin. Children are welcome! Well-behaved pets are also welcome!

Eight Askernish is set in a quiet crofting township on the Atlantic coast of South Uist amidst lapwings, hen harriers, short-eared owls, and for much of the year an abundance of wild flowers.

The cottage is well placed for the hills, glens and fishing lochs of the east, and just a few minutes from miles and miles of quiet lanes and off-road cycling along the sandy machair tracks and beaches of the Atlantic shore. The world-famous – yet still uncommercialized – Askernish links golf-course is at the end of the lane. It’s a short drive or cycle ride to shops and hotel (bar, restaurant) at Daliburgh.
