A 7 night luxury full board walking and swimming retreat based in Timsgarry Uig, on the stunning west coast of the island of Lewis. In an elevated position overlooking Uig Sands, Eagle Lodge is perfectly positioned to offer sea or mountain views from every room. With floor to ceiling windows in the common areas you'll be able to watch the sun setting across the hills onto the beach or if you prefer to feel fresh Hebridean air on your face you can always soak these views in from the hot tub on the decking with panoramic views of the best of the Hebrides. The local shop is a 5 minute walk away.
With complimentary therapies available on arrival your holiday will kick start with some rest and recreation followed by an evening meal prepared by your private chef. End the evening with a stroll or dip on the beach if you like, which is only 5 minutes walk away. Your itinerary will be at a relaxed pace and you'll have plenty time to explore independently. We can arrange bike hire for afternoons off and you'll have one full day to choose further complimentary therapies or relax in your own way.
You will receive a sumptuous breakfast, lunch (or packed lunch), snacks and a 3 course healthy locally sourced evening meal with glass of wine each day. Your private chef can cater to all diets.
Activities will consist of gentle walks with some moderate hill-walking, cold water swimming in the sea and local lochs (below 15 degrees) and one or two RIB trips to outer islands to swim and explore uninhabited islands. The swims are suitable for all abilities but it's advisable for you to have some experience swimming outdoors before your holiday. We have sufficient safety cover to allow for dippers to the more energetic swimmer. You have the option to bring your own wetsuit or you can hire from Immerse Hebrides (included in the price). A wetsuit is not compulsory if you have proven experience swimming without in temperatures similar to the Hebrides.
A full kit list will be sent out to you prior to the holiday start date. You'll have opportunity to visit tourist attractions along the way. The proposed itinerary is attached but is subject to change.
Travel to and from the Hebrides is not included in your holiday price. You should plan to arrive in the town of Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. Loganair operates from Glasgow, Edinburgh & Inverness and in the summer months Southend airport. Caledonian MacBrayne is the only ferry operator and you can travel to Lewis by departing from the port of Ullapool to Stornoway. You will be met by your hosts at your arrival port where your holiday begins.
