More information about Rockpool

Property information

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.

  • Marga van Bloois
    What a fantastic house and a warm welcome and later also goodbye by the owner, Margareth-ann. The house is well equiped in all. Outside the beautiful deck is very good with outstanding views. Also to be seen inside. The beds are vey comfortable and the shower hot with power. A very good point is the extra tv in the smaller bedroom. We have certainly plans to come again.
  • Linda Scott
    Fabulous house, fabulous view! Everything you could ever want in a holiday home is catered for. Beds are super comfy and showers are nice and powerful. The view from the house is however the star of the show, breathtakingly beautiful, whatever the weather.
  • JoMcMann
    This property is absolutely amazing! If you want peace and quiet with fabulous views and beaches, this is the place. The house was spotlessly clean and there was nothing you would want for. The owners are very welcoming and the dog was very safe and settled. We would definitely love to go back, thank you.
  • Eileen Frater
    We had a wonderful time staying at Rockpool on South Uist, it has the most amazing setting with views across the water, Eriskay causeway and looking across to the Isle of Eriskay. The house is immaculate and well kitted out. The layout work really well too. Thoroughly recommend this cottage and hope to return one day.
