Property information

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL THESE IMAGES ARE OF BEACHCOMBERS WHICH SITS NEXT TO ROCKPOOL AND IS IDENTICAL. ROCKPOOL WILL BE PHOTOGRAPHED WHEN COMPLETED IN MARCH 2017. Rockpool occupies a truly magnificent position and commands panoramic views across the sea to the islands of Eriskay, Barra and beyond to the mountains of Rhum. The view is just breathtaking and will surely mean that you hardly want to stray from this perfect holiday cottage! However, the beautiful, white shell beaches will lure you away to explore, but Rockpool will always be a warm and welcoming base to return to.

The island of Barra is just a short ferry trip so easy to visit in a day and here you can see the planes landing on a cockle shell beach - subject to tides of course!

South Uist and North Uist are connected by a causeway so it is easy to tour both islands during your stay and those wishing to sail from Skye to North Uist can then drive down to Rockpool in under an hour and a half.

The cottage will be completed in March 2017 and offers comfortable and welcoming accommodation with the luxury of 3 bedrooms and 3 shower rooms.
