One Hundred Acres Each
Ronay - the 'rough' or 'seal' island - is situated off the south-east of North Uist. It was once a religious haven that appealed to enthusiasts of the Middle Ages. Its population of six recorded in 1931 has diminished to no resident population, but one house now provides holiday accommodation on the island's 1391 acres. As Isle of Ronay House sleeps ten people that's over a hundred acres each! Access is speedy from Kallin on Grimsay, although the rough edges of the island give every opportunity for slow meandering by kayak.
