South Uist Estate - Grogarry Lodge
Near Benbecula, The Outer Hebrides
In December 2006, the local community of 3,000 people bought the South Uist Estate from a syndicate of owners, covering approx 93,000 acres over the three Islands of Benbecula, Eriskay and South Uist.
South Uist Estate is the largest Community-owned area in Scotland.
Grogarry is a sporting Lodge run by the Estate with deer stalking and wildfowling managed by the three full time keepers.
Grogarry is a rare opportunity to enjoy an exclusive, fully-serviced Hebridean retreat, fish some of the finest machair lochs, experience the exceptional Sporting, play the infamous “Old Tom Morris Course”, or simply enjoy the stunning outdoors.

Though the date of construction is not known, Grogarry Lodge was originally built by the Laird of the Long Island Estate and its age is indicated by the fact that it was ‘modernised’ over one hundred and twenty years ago. Today, the Lodge is offered on an exclusive use basis, which is a fully serviced experience difficult to find in the modern world.
The dedicated staff provide all meals, with much of the produce coming from the islands, and the picnic lunches come in hampers that may take two people to carry.
With eight bedrooms, offering accommodation in twin and double rooms for up to sixteen guests, the lodge is perfect for family groups and friends. A rare home away from home, the lodge offers a unique country home experience.
The well stocked wine cellar provides the ideal complement to the traditional Scottish cooking, served in the grand dining room, which restores strength at the end of a strenuous day outdoors.
Downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms and wide doorways also make the lodge accessible for those with mobility problems.
