“Comfortable House in superb position”
Reviewed October 17, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A warm, comfortable house that provided everything we needed. The location is superb . Being interested in wildlife, we were particularly excited to see Sea eagles, otters and St Kilda from the kitchen window!

“Great accomodation in beautiful location.”
Reviewed June 27, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Three of us visited North Uist to do some wildlife photography. Creagan Ruadh was the perfect base for us. It's in a stunning location with plenty of wildlife literally on the doorstep. A lovely clean house with everything we needed. Would definely return and stay here again.

“Most stunning coastal location”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016
1
person found this review helpful

This cosy and well equipped cottage is set on one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world. A haven for all types of birds with white sands and turquoise seas and skies that seem twice as big as normal, this is a must visit place. No draughts in this cosy cottage even on the one night a storm raged. The owners pictures really can't do the location justice but hit google images with Balranald North Uist and you'll see what I'm talking about. Gordon was there to say hello when we arrived, just to let us know where he was if we needed help with anything.

“Stunning location”
Reviewed September 17, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

the cottage is right by the sea with amazing views to islands near and far (St Kilda on a clear day). We saw many birds, seals and an otter from our bedroom and the kitchen windows.
The cottage was comfortable and the downstairs bedroom and bathroom worked well for my elderly mother. Five adults stayed in the cottage and we were very comfortable. The cottage was well equipped. The wifi didn't work until 1st Sept (we arrived on 29th August) as the allowed limit had been reached - it then worked well. Shops were far better stocked than we had expected. There aren't many places to eat out but Stepping stones restaurant was good value. Langass Lodge was amazing for a special meal. The boat trip on the Lady Anne was a highlight - seeing a white tailed eagle taking a fish from the sea as well as red deer and seals. The beaches are stunning and are a minutes walk from the cottage (which we all enjoyed especially our black Labrador, Welly!). We had Vodafone phone coverage throughout the islands. The cottage is a real escape from the daily hassles of life! It would be nice to have a visitors book - so walks, restaurants etc can be recommended by guests. Overall a totally relaxing holiday!
