Barra house by the sea

I work from home in this traditional Barra house in a wonderful peaceful location. The part offered for exchange is the ground floor and half of the upstairs (the other part of the upstairs is my office).

The main room and bedroom both have large and deep windows overlooking the sea (the walls are 3 ft thick), the bathroom and kitchen overlook the hill Heaval in the middle of the island, popular with climbers and walking distance from my house.

There`s a bathroom with a bath, a downstairs loo with basin, and an outdoor shower; a log burner and central heating if you need it. I live here on my own and it would suit a single person, but the bed is a small double and fine for two.

I love swimming in the bay, but there are also two kayaks, and you are welcome to use my car to get round the island.

About the location

Barra is a world of its own, utterly beautiful, and the house is very peaceful. Rum and Canna are in view on a clear day. The main town of Castlebay is 2 miles away.
