    “Fantastic stay - cottage is superb and has everything you need.”

    Fishing was hard work but caught a few, good brown trout. Loch in front of the cottage was handy and has loads of small brownies. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fantastic house. Will recommend to friends and family. Many thanks, from Ian, Sharon, Stevie and Linda.

The property

Coastal View Cottage is a true gem of a find. A 4 Star spacious holiday home, tucked away down a quiet road and with a neat and tidy exterior, a surprise awaits you as you enter the house. First of all, your eyes are drawn to the unique ceiling rose in the porch - a carefully crafted compass which, if the stunning sunsets haven't already alerted you to the direction the house faces, the compass will! Once inside it is immediately obvious that luxury has been paramount in the creation of every room. From the sumptuous sofas, cushions and carpets in the sitting room to the luxuriously appointed bedrooms and absolutely fabulous shower rooms, it is hard to fault even one small area. The owner's attention to detail is clear wherever you look and the comfort of the guests has always been considered throughout. For those with bikes there is a large and lockable shed which has a heater under a drying rack, plenty of space and a tumble dryer for those items just needing drying off rather than washing. It is a short drive, over a causeway, to the Island of Eriskay which is small but fascinating and has a wonderful beach called Princes Bay where Bonnie Prince Charlie first landed. From here you can take a day trip to Barra, another interesting island with an airport with a beach for a runway! Great fun to watch the planes landing. South Uist is a beautiful island and well rewards exploration but Coastal View Cottage will be hard to venture out of! Within about 10 miles or less of the cottage there is: Boisdale Beach and machair, North Boisdale, Garrynamonie Beach and machair, Smerclate beach and machair and Kilbryde Beach to name but a few. Garrynamonie machair (grassy coastland plain) and beach is a short drive or a 15 minute stroll from Coastal View Cottage. There you will find picnic benches overlooking a wide white sandy beach. A great place to sit drinking your favourite beverage whilst watching the sun set. The local Boisdale beach and machair is just a 10 minute walk from the cottage and hosts an array of summer wild flowers including rare orchids. You can continue your walk round into Boisdale village with its mix of new and old traditional croft houses. The islands can be reached by flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness; or by ferry from Uig on Skye to Lochmaddy, or Oban to Lochboisdale.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

DALIBURGH, ISLE OF SOUTH UIST

Lochboisdale 3 miles; Ludag, 6.2 miles; Benbecula 24.8 miles.

Daliburgh is a town on South Uist in the Outer Hebrides and is known for being a crofting town. There is a memorial here to commemorate the life and works of Donald Allan MacDonald, a Gaelic poet who lived in Daliburgh in the mid 20th century. It is a great base from which to explore a fantastic selection of activities from fishing and walking to diving and birdwatching. The nearby Askernish Golf Course is always popular and was originally designed by ‘Old’ Tom Morris and is popular with golfers keen to test themselves on this challenging course. Dining options include fish and chips from the Burnside Chip Shop or for something a little more fancy dine in at the Borrodale Hotel. While you are in Daliburgh you can stock up on supplies at the supermarket and there is also a number of other shops including gifts shops. A short distance from Daliburgh is the fascinating Kildonan Museum and the birthplace of Flora MacDonald as well as a host of fabulous beaches just waiting to be discovered.

Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental. Note: Please bear in mind that this property is located on an island and therefore only accessible by plane or ferry.
