Benbecula Scenery.

A beautiful Winter's scene across the bay with Ben Mhor on South Uist in the distance, and Balivanich, Benbecula's main town, about 2 miles away. We generally get very little snow here due to the warm Gulf Stream that flows past the West Coast of Scotland.

View at dawn of the Loch in front of this house for sale by the sea. We have seen a Cormorant bird that likes to stand on one of the rocks in the Loch - it is a magnificent, big, pre-historic looking black bird, similar to a Pelican.

Ben Mhor on South Uist and Beach of Benbecula.

Lovely rural view, taken from the lounge window, showing the Machair, wild flowers and Ben Mhor mountain of South Uist in the distance. By the sea, fantastic beaches and splendid countryside, this property has it all!

The fabulous sandy beach on Benbecula is just 3 minutes walk away from this property for sale by the sea. Where else could you find such a wonderful beach apart from on a tropical island?

Benbecula Sunset and Sunrise.

A fantastic picture of a sunset here on the Island of Benbecula which has its own airport, council offices, hospital, Doctor's and Dentist's surgeries, a good school with many facilities such as gymnasium, swimming pool and running track, all of which can be used by the local residents, and 3 good supermarkets.

The orange glow of a beautiful Sunrise can be seen at dawn shining on the Loch at the front of the house. Benbecula has many such Lochs, ideal for shell fish enthusiasts.
