We spent a long time looking to come to Uist and an equal amount of attention looking at accommodation. We found the cottage and immediately it ticked all the boxes, traditional, wood fire, near beaches, accepts pets and looked amazing.
The pictures don’t do it justice as we were gobsmacked at the space we had when we arrived, so much room and so well set out with excellent touches and top equipment. We loved the time spent there and Scott was a pleasure to deal with before and after our visit – I actually said to him I was coy about putting on such a good review as it means it advertises something I want to keep a secret…..that’s not fair though 😉
A wonderful place, a wonderful location and we WILL return…..thank you!!!

This cottage is a remote, tranquil, wildlife haven. We spent a week here in July and loved it. If you’re looking for wild nights out, hustle and bustle, all mod entertainments then please go somewhere else! This cottage is all about getting away from it all. We saw Hen Harriers, Short Eared Owls and Eagles from the cottage. The garden was an extension of the Machair with orchids growing everywhere. If peace, tranquility, big landscapes and remote locations is your thing then you’ll love it.

We’ve stayed here a few times now. Very spacious cottage with everything you could need. Great sun room to sit and watch the wildlife and amazing sunsets. 20 minute walk to a fantastic beach which you can usually have to yourself and within an easy car drive of many other amazing beaches. Also close to the RSPB reserve if you are interested in that. Highly recommended.

We just visited as a family and had a fantastic time, the cottage was great for the 4 of us and we had a lovely time exploring the island and its wonderful beaches. North Uist is a special place and we hope to go back and stay again soon.

A spacious, comfortable, traditional cottage, beautifully kept and very clean, perfect for a holiday in the Western Isles.

A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. Beautifully presented, well equipped with everything you might need. Just a couple of issues, a visitors guide would be most helpful, it took us a while to work out the heating and why the TV in the lounge wouldn’t work. Also could do with bigger, better fluffier towels. Apart from this, would highly recommend this lovely cottage.
