Tree house cabins meet eco luxury

At the Uist Forest Retreat you will go enjoy hiking, beautiful coast lines and amazing seafood on your doorstep. The retreat offers stunning self-catering accommodation on North Uist. The uniquely designed treehouse cabins are nestled amongst the forest with views out to long sandy beaches, Vallay Island and the hills of Harris in the distance. Relax by the wood burning stove or soak in the views from the freestanding bath. 

Each cabin has an en suite bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with balcony and an open plan lounge / seating area to enjoy the wood burning stove and dramatic views.

Both circular self-catering cabins are based on the prehistoric wheelhouse design of the Iron age, the remains of which can be seen in many places throughout Uist.

All the timber is UK sourced and the sedum roof a stonecrop and wildflower mix to create a little wildlife habitat.

Both cabins are raised of the ground in the style of a treehouse, to leave the ground below untouched and to give the best opportunity to admire the unrivalled sea views along the coastline.

The forest is one of the most popular stops on the RSPB bird of prey trail where you have the opportunity to glimpse examples of all of the bird of prey species breeding in the Outer Hebrides. Within the forest you will find a small population of red deer and you may just see them wander past the cabins on occasion.
