General

Glamping holidays in 2 luxury on-suite, self-catering camping pods in the Outer Hebrides. Situated in the idyllic coastal village of Mangersta in the Uig area of the Isle of Lewis. Each cabin sleeps up to 4 people and is available for nightly and/or weekly holiday lets. They both have one double bed, one sofa bed, table, chairs and mini kitchen with a sink, 2 ring hob, crockery and cooking utensils, microwave and fridge. The en-suite contains a toilet, wash hand basin and sports shower. A water heater, panel heater, full insulation and double glazing keep the pods warm and cosy. Facilities also include a stunning camp fire/BBQ pit set within a circular dry-stone wall. Uig Community Shop (5 miles from Mangersta) has launderette facilities, off-licence, fuel and groceries.

The cabins are a 5min. walk from Mangersta Beach and look out across the North Atlantic. They are located on a working croft where we keep a small herd of Aberdeen Angus cows, Hebridean sheep and poultry. Designated a National Scenic Area, due to the outstanding natural beauty of the coastal landscape, the Uig area is famed for its numerous white shell sand beaches, rocky coves, crystal clear turquoise seas, dramatic cliffs, rugged hills & gentle machair grasslands carpeted with wild flowers during the summer. This wilderness landscape is rich in flora, fauna & bird-life including golden eagles & sea eagles. Mangersta Croft Wigwams are a hidden escape in one of the most beautiful & remote parts of Europe.
