    “Stayed at this lovely, and spacious, house for a week.”

    Sadly, the weather was awful for virtually the whole week, but having a warm, comfy, and homely house to spend the time in, sort of made up for the weather! We made use of the log fire, which very quickly warmed the living room, and was lovely to cosy down to while the rain and wind lashed down outside. Very well equipped house, and Neil was the perfect host - the welcome gifts were very much appreciated. If we could guarantee the weather we would be back!!

The property

Fuidaigh is one of the Ocean View Cottages on South Uist, so called because of the huge expanse of sea view which the house commands. Recently renovated to significantly upgrade the standard and facilities with a new shower room, ceiling to floor windows in the lounge and a wood burning stove Fuidaigh is now a very comfortable and relaxing, family sized, holiday home. The house sleeps 6 most comfortably in three bedrooms, a double bedroom a king size bedroom and a twin bedroom with 2 x 3ft 6in wide beds. The kitchen is spacious and light and a great place for cooking, dining and planning the next days activities. The lounge is also a spacious room with great views, a wood burning stove and plenty of comfy seating for everyone. Those who know South Uist need no introduction to those fabulous, island long, sandy beaches on the west coast and Fuidaigh is ideally situated to access them for all day long walks or just a leisurely relaxing day listening to the surf and the gulls. A short drive will take you across a causeway to the Island if Eriskay where there is an excelent shop, pub and restaurant. From here you can take a day trip sail to the Isle of Barra. Local, and a short walk from the house is the Polochar Inn where great meals can be had. Or just wander down for a glass of something. There is a local Coop in Daliburgh about 5 minute drive. A local cafe is a pleasant walk away along the beach and there are a wealth of historic and archaeological sites to visit. Ocean View Cottages also includes Smiddy Cottage which is close to Fuidaigh and can be let in conjunction if you need to accommodate 8. South Uist is a most beautiful island in the southern part of the Outer Hebrides. Sailing by Calmac Ferries from Mallaig to Lochboisdale or from Uig to Lochmaddy.

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.
