    About this property

    Enjoy panoramic views from this delightful, single-storey cottage, nestled on the beautiful island of South Uist.
    S91113 is a spacious, bright and comfortable detached holiday home, located close to the owners’ home, in the crofting community of Smerclate on the island of South Uist. With panoramic views over the Sound of Barra, this peaceful and tranquil location offers a real ’get away from it all’ experience, whether you go out exploring or just enjoy the comforts that S91113 offers. The birdlife and wildlife are wonderful, with eagles, corncrakes, whales and basking sharks, which all visit in the summer. The machair is a mass of colour with all the different wild flowers, flora and fauna, and there is brilliant walking on the white sandy beaches. This is an ideal base for exploring the islands. Eriskay is a short drive away, where you will be amazed at the turquoise waters, sandy beaches, and where the Eriskay ponies wander freely. Here you will also find the famous Politician Inn. The cargo ship, SS Politician, sank in February 1941 in the waters between Eriskay and South Uist, and this shipwreck was the basis for the classic film ‘Whisky Galore’. Guests can take a day trip from Eriskay to Barra, and other boat trips run from Lochboisdale out to Mingualay, Monach Islands and St Kilda. There is so much history steeped in these islands, with Neolithic stone structures, medieval churches and many archaeological sites, and you will find that Gaelic is widely spoken throughout the isles. So do come and enjoy this beautiful location, you will truly be amazed! Beach ¼ mile. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    "Lovely cottage, recommend the bed in the en-suite room - simply the most comfortable I have ever slept in on holiday. There is everything you are likely to need for a holiday stay including good cooking knives. Local amenities - This is South Uist so don't expect shops everywhere or nightlife.... there is an amazing beach very close by, with excellent rock pools to explore, hills in the distance for those of you into that sort of thing, a well stocked Co-op supermarket 5 mins away with prices in line with the mainland, a pub within easy walking distance, more wildlife than you can shake a camera at and an amazing view out of the living room window.... The closest ferry terminal is Lochboisdale which has a daily crossing to Mallaig BUT it is not the most reliable service - if there is a strong wind blowing its highly likely to be cancelled. I recommend using the Uig (Skye) to Lochmaddy (North Uist) route which is shorter and more sheltered than the more southerly crossing to/from Mallaig and is much less likely to be cancelled during inclement weather (I speak from bitter experience - however beautiful I don't recommend trying to fill in 9 hours on North Uist waiting for a ferry!)I summary the cottage is lovely and spacious, Neil the owner is very friendly and helpful, the islands are beautiful and its a perfect spot for a relaxing holiday away from it all, note - the mobile phone signal in the cottage is weak and patchy but there is wifi available for those moments when you need to share those photos of holiday with your friends via social media."
