The property

Described in the visitors' book by a previous guest as 'The Three Bears Cottage', this is an idyllic cottage in an even more idyllic location, right by the sea and beach on the Outer Hebridean island of South Uist. This cosy and atmospheric cottage for two is an ideal 'get-away-from-it-all' for couples or single travellers. The sunset photograph on here was taken standing outside the cottage on the 1st May. May and June are some of the finest months on the islands, as the machair comes into flower in all its glory. However, storm-tossed seas are dramatic and inspiring - especially enjoyed from the warmth and comfort of this traditional Hebridean cottage. Double glazed and heated by modern storage heaters and a flame-effect stove, the cottage offers year-round availability. Wake in the morning and wander the short walk across the beach to Hebridean Jewellery on the other side of the bay, where you can enjoy a morning coffee and roll - or just enjoy the breathtaking view from the cottage and have breakfast outside in the summer. The Outer Hebrides really are 'a little bit of paradise', with the huge sandy beaches, clear azure blue seas and fabulous floral displays in the spring. Being home to many rare and unusual birds, the islands are an ornithologist's heaven, with corncrakes and corn buntings amongst the birds to watch out for. Visit the award-winning Balranald Nature Reserve with its fantastic coastal walks, rocky headlands and sandy bays. There is a large heated and secure purpose-built shed which is available throughout your stay. The shed, where the washing machine is housed, has the benefit of electricity and water supply and can be used for the storage of bikes, outdoor clothing etc. Fishing tackle can also be made available by prior arrangement. This is an ideal situation for kayaking in the bay and there is plenty of storage space in the garden to store equipment. Although the cottage is traditional it has wireless broadband and a mobile phone signal is available in the vicinity. However, you may just want to leave the laptop at home and step into 'island timelessness'! The double bedroom is cosy and warm and offers the chance to wake after a peaceful night's sleep to look out onto the Atlantic Ocean without having to get out of bed! The Isle of South Uist can be reached by ferry from Oban to Lochboisdale, or from Uig on Skye to Lochmaddy. This ferry docks at Lochmaddy on North Uist, which is connected to South Uist by causeway. The ferry is operated by Calmac Ferries. Alternatively, you can fly to Benbecula airport, which is also connected by causeway to South Uist. You are welcome to bring your dog on holiday with you, and if you have two miniature dogs then they would be welcome. EPC Rating: Band E

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
