Cluain Glas, 8 Claddach, Kirkibost, Isle of North Uist, HS6 5EP

A traditional blackhouse built in 1861 which was modernised and upgraded in the 1970s.


Entrance Hallway, Kitchen/Living Room, Two Double Bedrooms & Bathroom.

8 Claddach is a traditional blackhouse built in 1861 and was the original croft house for the surrounding croftland.   The original thatched roof was replaced when the property was renovated and modernised in the 1970s.

The deceptively spacious interior has high ceilings and velux windows to the rear that flood the rooms with light.

The flexible accommodation has three main loving rooms and a bathroom.  The rooms are currently used as a kitchen/living room and two bedrooms but one of the bedrooms could easily be used as a more formal lounge.

The property is close to the shore with wonderful coastal views.

8 Claddach would make a lovely permanent or holiday home.
