Croft Garden Cottage
South Uist - Outer Hebrides

Ardivachar where time is governed by the seasons and the turn of the tide.

An archipelago of 120 islands, the Outer Hebrides lie 35 miles off the north-west coast of Scotland and are renowned for their stunning landscapes and wildlife. This is an ancient land, shaped by the North Atlantic oceanic climate, transformed by the hand of man and haunted by his history. With beautiful scenery, magnificent coasts and outstanding wildlife, the Outer Hebrides has a growing reputation as an exceptional place to live and work.

Ardivachar is a small crofting community on the north west tip of South Uist at the apex of a stretch of silver sand and machair which runs along the entire length of the west coast of the island. Croft Garden Cottage, on the west side of Ardivachar Point, has stunning views of the North Atlantic: the nearest landfall due west is Newfoundland.

Ardivachar is approximately 8 miles by road from Balivanich, the principal population centre on the Uists, with local government services, school, bank, hospital, restaurants, shops and airport. There is a primary school, secondary school and medical practive within a 5 mile radius.

It is almost equidistant between the two ferry terminals: Lochmaddy (27 miles) and Lochboisdale (23 miles) which provide services to Uig on Skye and Mallaig. Local ferries and causeways link all the islands in the Outer Hebrides. There is a regular air service from the airport in Balivanich to the Scottish mainland.
