Ben View Bed and Breakfast


9, Knockintorran, Isle Of North Uist, Outer Hebrides, HS6 5ED

    Welcome to Ben View Bed and Breakfast


    We are Jeremy & Maggie Howarth and we welcome you to our home. Our North Uist Bed and Breakfast is a Croft house dating from the late 1800s. We have spent the last two years renovating, modernising and reinstating original features – we hope you like it. Ben View sits in an elevated position overlooking Loch Sandray to the front and out to the west coast at the rear.

    We are ideally situated for exploring Balranald Bird Reserve, 5 minutes away by car and there are many wonderful beaches in the vicinity. Loch Sandray itself has a lovely circular walk from the house. There is a plethora of birdlife and we also get the occasional otter. During the spring we have had up to half a dozen corncrake in the croft surrounding the house and even in the vegetable patch. In the evenings you will regularly see short-eared owls patrolling the shore of the loch. Hen Harriers, Buzzard, Golden Eagle, Whooper Swans, various Geese and Waders are all to be seen locally.

    We hope to see you soon.

    Jeremy and Maggie
