‘Home to Britain’s largest bird, the white-tailed eagle, as well as its smallest, the goldcrest (it weighs the same as a 20p piece), the island of North Uist is a birding paradise. Guests at Uist Forest Retreat will be treated to views of Vallay Island and the hills of Harris from luxury wooden cabins up in the treetops, where short-eared owls, merlins and hen harriers may also be spotted. uistforestretreat.co.uk’

‘Reconnect with nature from the comfort of a rustic treetop cabin, set on the wild and exceptionally scenic ‘edge of Britain’. There are fewer British locations more visually mesmerising than North Uist, part of the unspoilt and sparsely-populated OUter Hebrides. The simple life reigns supreme on this windswept edge of Britain, and you’ll find plenty of natural wonders to tempt you….
The Telegraph May 2021
‘ The site has since been designated a National Scenic Area and is home to a healthy population of birds and deer. With lofty treehouse views of Vallay island bordered by the pines, the upmarket accommodation feels almost Alpine, were it not for the Atlantic expanse at the retreat’s gates.’
Condé Nast Traveller July 2020
‘Reflecting the surrounding landscape, where prehistoric ruins jut out of undulating peat bogs, Uist Forest Retreat’s treehouse cabins match the wheelhouse design of the island’s Iron Age history. They differ, of course, in comfort and elevated views, which stretch as far as Harris and Vallay.’

‘Immerse yourself in nature on the beautiful island of North Uist. The perfect mini-moon destination giving you the opportunity to explore Scotland’s wildlife and natural fauna. Once you have finished exploring for the day, kick your feet up and watch the world go by as you take in the mesmerising views of the Atlantic Ocean. Seafood lovers will also not want to miss out on trying some of the UK’s freshest shellfish.’
