Holiday Rental House
This cosy cottage sits right on the waters edge and is both remote and isolated. Your only neighbours being the sea birds, seals and the occasional otter! It really is an ideal retreat, where you can escape the bustle of daily life and relax. It is ideally placed right at the centre of the Outer Hebrides, so you can explore from Eriskay (with regular connections to Barra) to the south, to Berneray (with regular connections to Harris) to the North. It was originally built as a shieling to house land workers, and is now a comfortable holiday retreat, with the added advantage of a log burning stove to snuggle up to after a long day out. The property is undergoing a complete upgrade ready for the 2019 season. Windows, and front door have been replaced.

A comfortable cottage in a fantastic location. The views are fantastic and the place very quiet. There are no neighbours but it's close enough to shops not to feel isolated. It's perfectly situated in the centre of the Uists. The owner has done a great...More

The cottage is a very nice original old crofters house, converted into a nicely equipped holiday cottage. The location is fantastic, basically in the middle of nowhere and in the middle of nature. We've had various birds and seals in front of the house. We've...More

Thank you to this guest for making some valid points. I have altered the directions to make it clearer how to find the cottage. The wifi is proving a challenge, but I am persevering! We have managed a signal on Vodafone and O2 from the...More

The location was perfect for us. Teaming with wild life, quiet location but within short driving distance of other islands. Well equipped shops open relatively nearby and a cosy cottage to return to after a days exploring. Highlights were the local otters, the beautiful beaches,...More

About the neighbourhood
The wild beauty of the Hebrides is hard to comprehend unless you have experienced it. It is a haven for bird watchers with many rare birds to be seen regularly. There is a white tailed eagle and golden eagle which regularly fly up the loch past the cottage, their approach heralded by warning cries from other birds. The Uists have some of the finest sandy beaches anywhere with beautiful turquise sea beyond.
Getting around
Although there are a few buses which run between Berneray and Eriskay, realistically a car is pretty essential to get around. The cottage is about 2 miles from the shops and nearest bus stop. Some of the main road from the north to south of the Hebrides is double track, but most of the roads on the islands are single track with passing places.
