“A small corner of heaven”
Reviewed April 10, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We have just returned from a glorious week at this cottage. This was our second visit to the Outer Hebrides and were delighted to be able to stay in this delightful place for this visit. The owners have renovated it extremely well and it is a fantastic place to stay. Spotlessly clean and so well equipped, comfortable and very warm and cosy and just a 2 minute walk from a lovely beach. There is a well stocked supermarket 5 minutes drive away but the cottage is in a quiet position and is a relaxing place to stay. We met with Donald the owner whilst there and found him to be very friendly and personable. The Hebrides is an amazing place and we were lucky enough to have sunny weather for most of the week. Benbecula is a lovely place and apart from the cottage, our favourite places are Berneray, Luskentyre beach on Harris and RSPB Balranald but you won't be disappointed wherever you go.Langas Lodge is worth a visit if you enjoy good food. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage or the Islands and have no doubt we will return.

“Superb !”
Reviewed March 16, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The cottage is located so you can discover Uist , north , south , Bernera , Benbecula ~ my first time on the island so wanted to see as much as possible , this made it the prefect location. The cottage has been finished to a high standard and you get the feel of a quality hotel. Two min walk and you are onto a sandy beach with lovely sunsets , five mins drive and you have a great little supermarket , takeaway food , petrol station ~ yet at night you still get the stars with little light pollution and the feeling of being away from real life ~a great real fire as well , will be back to stay again , the owners are really nice , first class !

A surprise stay in this beautiful cottage as a late birthday present. Warm, cosy & comfortable, a short walk from beautiful culla bay and local amenities.
The only bad thing about culla cottage is having to leave.

“LOVE this home away from home!”
Reviewed October 23, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Culla Cottage is simply perfect. The home itself is beautiful, the location is stunning, and Donald and Sheena are the perfect hosts. We absolutely LOVED our stay and look forward to returning as soon as possible. The cottage has been completely renovated and the attention to detail, care, craftsmanship and love that went into re-doing this family croft is amazing. This lovely home away from home has everything you need for the perfect vacation. HIGHLY recommend this cottage to anyone planning a visit to the Outer Hebrides, for short or extended stays. You will definitely fall in love with both the home and the island.

“Ideal cosy base for exploring the Western Isles”
Reviewed September 21, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Culla cottage is a beautifully and tastefully refurbished "black house" with all the amenities, comforts and mod cons you could wish for. Situated in Benbecula, its also a perfect base for exploring both N and S.Uist, with all the attractions within less than an hour's drive - and many closer. If you don;t want to drive it is also within just a few yards of one of the many beautiful sandy beaches on the west coast. Despite its peaceful and relatively isolated location it is also only a few minutes drive away from some of the best facilities (shops, restaurants etc) on the islands. The owner (who lovingly rebuilt and refurbished his parents original black house) was most helpful.

“Lovely cottage in a great location for exploring the Uists”
Reviewed September 11, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

We stayed in Culla Cottage for two weeks and found it a great, well-equipped, comfortable cottage. It's situated right next to a lovely (and generally empty) beach facing onto the Atlantic with distant views of the Stephenson-built lighthouse on the Monach Islands.

The cottage is located very near Balivanich, which while it won't perhaps win any beauty awards, does have a good supermarket, a restaurant and all the things you need on your doorstep. Generally, it's a very central location with easy access to the Uists and surrounding islands.

The owners are very hospitable and I would highly recommend Culla Cottage if you want a cosy base for exploring the Outer Hebrides.

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 21, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I had an great time in Culla Cottage. The location right next to the dunes and the beach is amazing. The cottage itself has been renovated lovingly and is very cozy and comfortable with a great kitchen (luxurious appliances throughout). The hospitality was second to none! Thank you again, Donald and Sheena! Hopefully until next time!
