Property Description

This substantial stone built semi-detached property is an early example of work by the renowned architect Alexander Ross.  The Schoolhouse faces east catching the morning sun looking out towards the North Uist hills.  Also boasting a westerly aspect to catch the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean. 

Situated in the village of Carinish, the property was the school master’s house and forms part of the former Carinish Primary School.  Whilst the property adjoins the school, it should be noted that the school has recently closed.   

Although the property is in need of modernisation and re-decoration throughout, it offers spacious accommodation over two floors.  It has single glazed, hardwood windows with the added amenity of a recently installed solid fuel central heating system supplemented by an immersion heater providing hot water.  There is also a detached garage and a stone built garden shed. 

Carinish boasts a hotel with a restaurant and a church within walking distance of the property together with the ruins of the mediaeval Trinity Temple which was one of the first universities in Europe. 

The main commercial area of Benbecula with its airport, offering daily flights to Glasgow, hospital, restaurants, bank, medical and dental facilities, schools and shops is some 10 miles distant to the south.  Lochmaddy, 11 miles to the north offers a bank, doctor’s surgery, two hotels with restaurants, museum/art centre, post office and ferry terminal with daily sailings to the Isle of Skye.  The new North Uist Primary school has now opened at Bayhead, some 8 miles distant with a free door-to-door bus service for pupils provided.
