Sustainability

We have set out to preserve the historic charm of Tigh na Boireach whilst taking account of the contrasting environmental considerations of the 21st century.

The cottage has 4kW of solar panels discretely located in the field next to the cottage. These provide most of the domestic electricity during the summer months.

Charge Point

We have also installed a 6kW Rolec EV charger next to the entrance to the field. This has a type 2 socket (bring your own charging cable) and can be used by guests with electric vehicles for free.

There is a good EV charging infrastructure on the island with rapid chargers located at several locations throughout North and South Uist as well as Benbecula.

Potatoes and Vegetables

We are experimenting with growing potatoes in raised beds which guests are welcome to pick and eat during your stay. No guarantees are offered with this as it depends on the weather. We also have a herb boat in the garden providing fresh herbs for your cuisine.
