    “A fantastic comfortable place to stay with views to die for.”

    We did struggle to find the property in the dark using the instructions. They are inaccurate but this was the only issue we had!

The property

Sea Spray Cottage, newly completed for Spring 2022, is stylish, exceptionally comfortable and spacious. Located at the southern tip of South Uist it is ideally placed for exploring Eriskay, Barra and South Uist. The causeway links Eriskay to South Uist and is less than 10 minutes drive to the local Community shop. Here you can source everything from everyday items, local produce and crafts. The ferry from Eriskay sails regularly to Barra allowing a comfortable day trip. Returning to South Uist there are many beaches to explore. The nearest is directly opposite the cottage consisting of a mixture of sand and cobbles stones along the shoreline. Head east passing the causeway on your left to the cockle beach at South Glendale. The western side of South Uist is, almost, one long continuous expanse of white sand backed by dunes which are host to the machair flowers and grasses. This property is cleverly designed so that both the lounge and dining area benefits from the sea views with the spacious and well equipped kitchen within easy reach. The interior has been carefully styled throughout with a mix of traditional and contemporary furniture. An oak floor with under floor heating ensures that the house is easily heated and that a comfortable temperature is maintained throughout the year. Two comfortable bedrooms with plenty sea air ensures a comfortable night sleep. The large picture window frames the view across the Sound of Barra. Relax a while on the sofa and watch; the sunlight as it twinkles on the ripples, the white crested waves and the changing colour hues of the sea. Immediately in front of this cottage you can swim or paddle in the sea, stroll along the shore collecting shells or quietly wait and watch for the otter to make an appearance. Seals are often spotted bobbing about in the waves watching for a few minutes before diving into the clear water. Artists and photographers are attracted to the light, the natural beauty and the wildlife that this beautiful island offers. Less than 30 minutes drive is Askernish Golf Course laid out by Tom Morris amongst the sand dunes on the western side. 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. EPC Rating: Band B

About the location


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.
