The property

Daliburgh 3.3 miles.

Enjoying a tranquil setting in South Boisdale on the Isle of Uist, Outer Hebrides, is the charming country cottage, Canach Cottage.

Providing rustic accommodation, the cottage is perfect for families looking for a pleasant base from which to explore the delights of the Outer Hebrides.

As you approach the cottage, a sense of calm and tranquillity descends and guests can truly feel they are getting away from it all.

Inside, the space is warm and inviting with an open-plan kitchen and dining space greeting guests as they arrive.

Here, there is a well-equipped country kitchen with a good-sized dining area, the perfect spot for preparing family meals and sitting down to catch up on the news of the day.

With so much fantastic local produce available right on the doorstep, the kitchen will certainly be put to good use during your holiday whether it is making a hearty cooked breakfast, a light lunch or a sumptuous evening meal.

Upstairs there is a quirky sitting room with wood panelling and feature windows helping to showcase the stunning countryside views and is the ideal place to get warm and snug for the night in front of the TV and electric stove fire.

The kids will love the bunk beds and for the grown-ups the double bedroom offers a welcoming sanctuary.

If the sun is shining, then the delightful outside patio area is a great setting for chilling out and soaking up the views, while children (and dogs!) can run around the gardens which are safely enclosed.

The views from the cottage help to give a taste of what is on offer in the area from beautiful beaches, fabulous forests and captivating countryside, you really are spoilt for choice.

The beach is within walking distance and if you love wildlife then you’ve come to the right place with red deer and corncrakes often spotted in the area.

Boat trips are available to Barra, Mingulay and St Kilda and Eriskay is a short drive over the causeway – keep an eye out for the famous Eriskay wild ponies.

The picturesque port town of Lochboisdale is worth a visit and just outside the town Askernish Golf Course and the Kildonan Museum.

If you fancy a day out, then Lochmaddy is a short drive and is the main town on Uist boasting an award-winning museum and arts centre and is also the gateway to sailings to the Isle of Skye.

Close to a whole host of attractions and activities for the whole family to enjoy, Canach Cottage enjoys a wonderfully tranquil setting.

About the location

Daliburgh is a town on South Uist in the Outer Hebrides and is known for being a crofting town. There is a memorial here to commemorate the life and works of Donald Allan MacDonald, a Gaelic poet who lived in Daliburgh in the mid 20th century. It is a great base from which to explore a fantastic selection of activities from fishing and walking to diving and birdwatching. The nearby Askernish Golf Course is always popular and was originally designed by ‘Old’ Tom Morris and is popular with golfers keen to test themselves on this challenging course. Dining options include fish and chips from the Burnside Chip Shop or for something a little more fancy dine in at the Borrodale Hotel. While you are in Daliburgh you can stock up on supplies at the supermarket and there is also a number of other shops including gifts shops. A short distance from Daliburgh is the fascinating Kildonan Museum and the birthplace of Flora MacDonald as well as a host of fabulous beaches just waiting to be discovered.
