“Perfect house in beautiful location”

We stayed for a week and thought the house was absolutely perfect - we wouldn't change a thing! The house was spotless, extremely well equipped and very comfortable. Ailean was a great host - always available if needed. We did a lot of exploring during our stay and saw loads of wildlife including red deer, short eared owls, Risso's dolphins, sea eagles and lots of birds. We loved South Uist as it feels remote and peaceful and yet it has a great community feel.

We hope to return one day and would certainly like to return to Airigh Nam Faidh and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

“Beautiful house in a fantastic location”

Had a wonderful week at Airigh nam Fiadh. The house is beautifully finished and very spacious. We had everything we needed, the kitchen is brilliantly stocked with everything you could need. We discovered the beauty of North Uist Benbecula, South Uist, Eriskay and Barra all of which were easy to get to from this central location. Saw otters, owls and wild ponies which came up to the gate for some carrots. Loch Bee is just behind the property and is a lovely place to wander in the evenings. Can't wait to come back.

“Excellent property in a scenic part of South Uist”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Excellent property in the North of South Uist overlooking Loch Bee to the North and to the slopes of Hecla to the South. Very friendly welcome from Margaret when we arrived and later from Allan.
We enjoyed cycling and walking on South Uist and also visiting the Islands of Eriskay, Benbecula, North Uist and Berneray all by car from the cottage.
Do be prepared for bad weather, even in the summer on South Uist, we had one day where the wind and rain were such that it more or less impossible to do anything outside.

“Beautiful, spacious and well equipped proberty”

We have been to a holiday rental in Scotland every year for 14 years and Ailean and Margaret (his mum!) are the most hospitable hosts we have had, making sure everything was as it should be, from the fairy cakes and eggs on day 1, as well as local event information and site seeing tips, to checking every few days in case anything was amiss.
The house is massive, with all the rooms bright, well decorated and comfortably furnished. Plenty of windows ensured that the great views could be enjoyed and the natural light from clear skies flood in. Always wildlife to see from the house whether it be the wild ponies, geese or lambs with the beach and hills just a short cycle or walk away.
The house is ideally situated in the mid point of the Western Isles allowing exploration of Barra and Eriskay in the south all the way through to Lewis and Harris in the north as easy day trips with the help of Calmac.
Our highlights were sea kayaking at Lochmaddymwith a nosy harbour seal just 25m away following us round, the gannets diving like rockets in the Sound of Harris and the North Uist Highland Games especially the everyone join in spirit.
Thanks again and slainthe mhath.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We are seasoned self caterers of over 30 years and can honestly say that this is the best property we have ever stayed in. It was spacious, really well furnished and spotlessly clean. Allan, the owner, gave us a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Add to that views of scenery and wildlife to die for and you have the perfect holiday cottage for us.
