I’ve been sitting on this exciting news since last summer; Air An Lot will now offer holiday lets.
An offer was made for house & croft last summer and finally went through on the 12th of January. It’s something that’s been in the pipeline for the past 18 months or so, but only became reality when the right property became available.
That property is the house and croft at 8 Port of Ness. I’ll probably sound like an estate agent advert now but hang on in there! A lovely wee traditional ‘department’ cottage built in the 1950s (there were lots of these homes built here post-war) with two double bedrooms and one single. As it is just now, I would be more than happy to stay there myself, but it will have a new kitchen and bathroom before it’s let, as well as being redecorated. Plenty to be getting on with in the next few months!
Equally as exciting, for me, is the 5 acre croft and barn that come with the house. I already have my ewe hoggs down there (it’s about 2.5 miles from my house) but I don’t expect to have any other livestock down there – best to keep everything else where I can keep a close eye on them! As always, I do have a couple of ideas up my sleeve for the croft, watch this space!

I expect the house to be available for let from May onwards. Prices and how it will tie in with other Air An Lot activities will follow. I have set up a new Facebook page for the house, where I will keep folk updated on progress.
