Children enjoying the free-range childhood

We have been living at Uig for over 5 years now and with Arthur soon to be 5 and Kitty and Marsaili soon to be 3 it now seems they are at the ages to enjoy their vast playground. They couldn't be happier than when running or cycling down the golf course to the river and then pottering around in the knee-deep river. Wetsuits have been a complete game-changer and they (and us) are more than happy to spend hours paddling, building sand castles, playing games until they decide it's food time and need to come home. 

Mabel our cocker spaniel was 1 in May and we feel very lucky that she has such a lovely temperament. The children love cuddling her, feeding her, walking her etc.

The kayaks have also provided hours of entertainment. This usually means the children sitting in the kayaks while mummy and daddy wade alongside being splashed and playing lifeguard. We (Dickon and Elly) have also given surfing a go this summer and although we can't claim to be very good at it, we absolutely loved it and hopefully next year we can get the children on the bodyboards and maybe one or two more lessons for us.

“A more beautiful and untouched place it would be hard to find. The lodge's position overlooking Uig sands is just jaw-dropping. Even if you don't want to fish there is still plenty to do, including stunning walks rounded off by a hearty picnic. And the lodge itself, which is comfortable and homely, is just the place to relax after a windswept day outside.”
