A stay at this remote (heavenly!)  location is about getting at least half an hour away from the real world and taking time to relax, perhaps to watch the birds, look at the flowers, go fishing or just take a stroll on the beach..

Wind-down – you’ll find relaxation easy at Baile na Cille….

When there are so many amazing beaches in our islands, it’s difficult to make comparisons, but Uig beach,
alongside Baile na Cille, must be among those at the top of the list.  At low tide, there’s around two miles length by up to nearly a mile width of sand, which appears to change its colour according to the sky and weather.

If you feel energetic, you might enjoy tennis on the grass court in the garden at Baile na Cille, or play a little croquet.  When the weather’s good, you could easily spend all your time just doing nothing in the garden – it’s just such an idyllic spot.

Richard, the owner for more than 25 years, takes a pride in providing well-prepared fresh food for his guests, in a dining room dominated by a huge model aircraft hanging from the ceiling. Dinner is a set menu, with special diets catered for by prior arrangement.

This house has interesting character! Around the three sitting rooms, you’ll find table football, bar billiards, hi-fi, TV, board-games and a small grand piano.

Accommodation at Baile na Cille

Baile na Cille consists of the Old Manse, plus its converted stables and outbuildings.  The guest accommodation is comfortable, with an unpretentious simplicity – appropriate to a location where the most enjoyable activity may be sitting in the sun enjoying the view from the gardens.

Food and drink

Good home cooking with local produce.  Book dinner ahead, either buying it up-front when you book accommodation or by phone before arrival (same price whichever way you do it).  Dinner is an opportunity to  socialise and given the distance from town (about 45 minutes drive) it makes sense to eat here.

“Unforgettable Stay – My husband and I stayed at Baile na Cille for just one night on our honeymoon. We had no difficulty finding it, as there are signs leading you to your destination. The views, and the beaches, are unbelievable. We had delicious venison, pâté, and some sort of amazing orange cake for dinner, and I had the best black pudding I had the whole trip for breakfast. In the evening we lounged and read and chatted with the hosts’ son and other guests, petted the dog, and generally felt like we no longer cared about the busy-ness we had left behind. Rooms were spotless, furniture rustic and comfortable. No shower so we were “forced” to take baths. No, it’s not a resort. It is a gorgeous and remote experience!” – A TripAdvisor reviewer.
