The beautiful sweeping sandy Hosta Beach (Traigh Stir) is a 5 min walk from the house. The surrounding machair is a haven for flowers, wildlife, bees, butterflies and corncrakes. Hosta Beach is also a popular spot for surfers on a wild and windy day.
On a clear day, the mythical silhouetted islands of St Kilda (Hirta) and Boreray can be viewed on the horizon. These now deserted islands can be visited by booking local boat trips from Leverburgh or Berneray.
