“Great family house, wonderful location”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed in the house the first week of July. As other reviews say it has been completely re-furbished to a very high standard, and very thoughtfully kitted out with everything you might need. We got lovely weather, and the views from the house are great with fantastic sunsets. The house is in a good location for going North and South in the chain of islands. The house is very spacious. There are really four bedrooms. While feeling luxurious it is very practical for a large family and we did not feel as if we had to tip-toe round lush furnishings. We really enjoyed ourselves and I would wholeheartedly recommend the house to a family. The owners met us at the house and all the arrangements went smoothly. Like other reviewers on ours tay we say deer and seals. Also, while it rained everywere else - even France - we had lovely weather, but I guess this can't be guaranteed!

“Beautiful house, great views”
Reviewed July 16, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This house has been beautifully and thoughtfully renovated to ideally match what you need on your holiday in the Uists.
Underfloor heating, oak flooring and solid oak furniture throughout. A really handy drying room and black-out curtains on the blinds. You'll need them, because An Taigh Soilleir is aptly named. You can actually see the horizon from all four sides of the house. We were woken by bright sunrises on a number of mornings (when the rest of the UK was wallowing in rain and mud) Beautiful views over to Benbecula and behind to the imposing Hecla. You can even see Loch Bi from the kitchen window.
The kitchen is very well equipped and Graham and Sineag did everything to make our stay comfortable, including finding a high chair for our neice's baby.
We rarely want to go back to somewhere we've been. We always like to discover somewhere new next time. But on this occasions we're already thinking of booking again for next year.

When you go, make sure you visit Berneray, an old favourite place of ours. The Uists have some stunning beaches, but West beach on Berneray is awesome.
TIP: when you cross the causeway from the South over Loch Bi you might think you're entering Benbecula and have gone too far and turn back looking for the house. At least that's what we did. Instead look for the big blue Hebridean Jewellery signpost on the main road and follow that.

“An exceptionally high standard of accommodation in a beautiful setting.”
Reviewed June 28, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed here for a week in june and had great weather. We were welcomed to the house by a family member and shown round which was nice. All the rooms are spacious with a modern feel. The furniture and all the fittings are high quality with a touch of luxury and makes for very easy living. The family have clearly thought through what is needed for a great holiday home and it really shows. The views of surrounding countryside are lovely and we enjoyed siting out in the sun. The gorgeous beach is within walking distance or a two minute drive. ther's lots to see and do around the island and the house makes a good touring base for N & S Uist, Berneray, Eriskay. The wildlife is superb, we saw seals, deer, short eared owls and much more. There's lots of art and craft places but the beaches are stunning. We paddled and cycled around too which was lovely. Locals are extremely friendly and even next doors sheep came to say 'hello'! Will definitely be coming back.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed June 13, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed at this property as we were working on the island, and wanted an alternative to a Hotel. Even though the property wasn't completely finished during our stay, the owners were good enough to rent it to us (for a discounted rate) and we were very pleased that they did. It's in a lovely, quiet and peaceful location, but ut's not isolated as there are a number of houses nearby. The views from the front and back of the property are fantastic and we spent many evenings enjoying the view from the spacious, sunny dining area. Infact, all of the rooms are spacious, particularly the kitchen, which was a pleasure to work in if, like me, you like to cook. The whole house is completed to a very high standard, has loads of room and is very warm and inviting (underfloor heating). I slept like a log the whole time I was there.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the island, irrespective of the size of the party and I fully intend to stay there again.
