The property

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 Rum. 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 was completed in March 2017 and offers comfortable and welcoming accommodation with the luxury of 3 bedrooms and 3 shower rooms.

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

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: The bed in bedroom 1 is a king-size zip-link as standard, if you require this to be a twin, please contact us to advise. Note: bring own linen for travel cot. Note: Charging for electric cars not included in the price
