Well equipped, clean cottage with plenty of space for family of 4 (children aged 15 & 8). The sea is just 20 metres from the cottage with lots of rock pools and rocks to scramble on as well as a small sandy patch - there are 2 other beautiful sandy beaches within less than 5 minute walk. On a clear day you can even see St Kilda from the cottage!
The cottage has the usual facilities you would expect in self- catering accommodation with a separate TV area and living room. (The TV was only switched on to watch Andy Murray win the Wimbeldon Men's final!)
The website stated towels were provided but I was informed on arrival that this apparently is not correct. Luckily I took towels for us all and we were provided with tea towels, hand towel and bath mat on request.
The RSPB nature reserve is worth visiting especially on a summers evening and it only took us 2 hours to walk there and back at a leisurely pace. Don't miss Hosta beach which is a 10 minute drive, the beaches en route to Bearneray and the little roads to places like Kallin harbour. South Uist is within very easy driving distance and do go across the causeway to Eriskay which is truly beautiful especially on a sunny day.
We would also recommend Uist Outdoor Centre for some activities (2 of us enjoyed an afternoon kayaking round Lochmaddy).
