Carrick Eriskay – The Blue House, is a unique architect-designed carbon-neutral house offering luxury accommodation for up to five.
The house is situated perfectly for all the island has to offer: wild hills and empty beaches to explore on foot – or by bike along the quiet tracks and lanes ; beach-combing ; wildlife ; sea-fishing, wildlife watching and photography … or just relax by the fire with a book and take in the ever-changing panorama of sea, mountains and wildlife.
Carrick is set along a quiet lane on the north coast of Eriskay , overlooking the turquoise waters and abundant wildlife of the Sound of Eriskay, and beyond to the glens and mountains of South Uist. The croft runs from the shore up to the ramparts of Beinn Sgiathan, the highest summit of Eriskay, with extraordinary panoramic views of the Hebrides, with mountains, shore and seas abundant with wildlife.
