More information about Coastal View Cottage

Property information

Coastal View Cottage is a true gem of a find. Tucked away down a quiet road and with a neat and tidy, but unassuming, 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!

We advertise the house as a 6 + 2 as, although the bunk beds are full size, the dining table most comfortably seats 6 with 8 at a squeeze.

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) 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.
