ABSOLUTELY MAGICAL !  We absolutely loved our stay here ..... The Cottage is truly wonderful.... a real haven! The setting in these stunning Outer Hebrides is incredible and we had an exceptional escape here. Every little detail in the cottage is perfect. Special thanks to Angus for making us feel so cared for and adding an extra warmth to the experience. thank you. J & C Newcastle UK.

"Thank you so much Angus & Lena for making the cottage so welcoming. It truly is Luxurious and the welcome goodies are such a nice touch. We may not have had the Indian summer that the rest of the UK was having but we've had some wonderful days on the hills and beaches and we recommend the walk to Loch Skipport. We didn't see the otters at the cottage but plenty of seals, their pups and Golden Eagles. K & S Berks.

We had a lovely time, very relaxing and so different from our hectic lifestyles. We saw wild horses and found an Oyster with a pearl inside !!!!! Truly magical. Excellent pre arrival service ! Thank you. P & M Poland & London

The pre-arrival service was excellent as is the cottage itself. It is so very comfortable with such lovely touches and everything is highest quality - you should be very proud of the oasis that you have created here. We had the most relaxing stay - Thank you ! We expected rain every day but actually had a good week. Sunday was wall to wall sunshine - is this really the Outer Hebrdes ?! we then had wind - lots of it but were able to walk and we ended the week with sunshine and a wonderful visit to Barra. Thanks again - we really feel relaxed and had a wonderful time !! S & R Nairn.

We had a wonderful honeymoon up here on Uist. The cottage has just been perfect, delightful - everything is so beautiful . Thank you very very much. T & C Canada

"An amazing cottage which along with all the extra touches of Champagne, chocolates and Hebridean goodies made our stay special and a highlight of our honeymoon. We were very lucky to see Otters swimming and playing in the loch over the hill at the cottage. We can recommend the food at Orasay Inn ( Best to book in advance). We have had a fantastic time and are hoping for a return visit, Thank you ! A & S Shropshire

"Thank you so much - what a beautiful cottage! The Luxury little touches made us feel very spoiled. The perfect place for our honeymoon." P & F - Aviemore Scotland.

"We have had a fantastic stay in this stunningly beautiful location and cottage. thank you for all your thoughtful touches which have made our stay here so special. Really loved our picnic on the hill above the cottage, seeing the seals both in the bay and at the point and walking along the amazing beaches on Uist" S & J - Devon

"Despite a couple of rainy first days we've had a wonderful time here. if it is wet outside then there is no nicer place to be holed up in - all the modern amenities but full of traditional charm.We've seen seals by only looking out the cottage window, sat up on the hill at the picnic table watching the sun rise. Two fantastic walks - one at the foot or rueval and the other at Udal peninsula on North Uist. A really wonderful place to stay, Thank you. K & L - Glasgow / London.
