As its name proclaims, the Uist Forest Retreat is truly a world away. This luxury treehouse accommodation features three custom-designed, circular wooden cabins that reference ancient wheelhouse design to maximise the views that surround. Entirely self-catering, the retreat is nestled within a designated National Scenic Area whose wild woodlands make an ideal location for birdwatchers and nature-lovers alike.

Perched above an expansive sea view, unwind nestled high above the forest where the sights never fail to inspire – catch glimpses of white-tailed eagles, long eared owls, hen harriers, gold crests and more as they whir by. Featuring three cabins complete with freestanding baths that overlook the shifting hues of the Atlantic Ocean, Uist Forest Retreat is an ideal for a romantic getaway or a moment of solitude.
Each cabin, built with timber sourced from the UK, is complete with luxurious amenities including a kitchenette, balcony and pure cotton sheets. The retreat also features a communal space with a washing
and drying machine, where guests have the delight of meeting fellow adventurers.
Born and raised on the islands, the owners Angus and Kathryn are not only passionate about their local community – they have a wealth of knowledge about it and are delighted to speak with their guests to help them plan their best getaway. Whether that means relaxing by your wood-burning stove, enjoying your large wrap-around widows, or exploring the nearby Claddach Valley, a stay at Uist Forest Retreat is sure to feel extraordinary.
