  • "This is a beautiful little cottage in the most stunning location."

    A deserted beach and sandy strand are one minute away. The cottage is very comfortable with lots of sitting out space to watch the sheep, rabbits and birds. It’s also very well located for exploring up to North Uist and south to Eriskay. 45 mins from Lochboisdale ferry. Two grocery shops are ten minutes away. We loved our stay - the two days of blistering sunshine were a gift!

  • "We had a wonderful stay in this pretty cottage."

    It is situated right on the beach and in the middle of the machair so wildlife is all around. Facilities are great, including a large shower. Very dog friendly. Well positioned to visit both north and south Uist and Benbecula. Would highly recommend.

  • "A darling vernacular house, next door to a beach and at the end of a road so no passing traffic."

    Set in a beautiful position with friendly neighbours who came by for a chat and offered fish for supper... Larks and curlews calling all day and the wild flowers were magnificent. A very special place to stay for wild life and peace and quiet.

  • "A beautiful, tranquil, secluded retreat from the world!"

    Loved walking the dog on the beach every morning and coming back to have coffee outside and just gaze at the sea. Night times were very special and we saw the Northern Lights from the cottage. Cosy, homely cottage which we loved.

  • "We did leave a few words in the visitors book to the effect that our holiday was truly special but I'm happy to add now that the cottage was simply perfect particularly as Mrs MacPhee allowed us to keep our horses in her field immediately outside!"

    Riding from the cottage across the sand was amazing!Thanks too to LHH - a very satisfactory customer experience

  • "We had the most wonderful stay at Cuir-Na-Bhoir and struggled to leave it to return home."

    It's a lovely cosy cottage with everything you could need and so peaceful. The sunsets & the sunrises were amazing and our early morning walks along the beach & occasional early swims no words can describe. The Uists are truly heaven on earth.

  • "This is a beautiful property in a stunning location very central to explore the Islands and for provisions."

    The property has a beautifully kept and secure garden which was perfect with a dog. I loved the sense of history and was lucky enough to meet the housekeeper who had lived on the croft as a child so she added to the information already in the cottage about its history which I found really interesting. The cottage was lovely and warm and as the weather was on one day pretty extreme that was a godsend. The Kitchen could be better equipped and there were some minor maintenance issues which I reported both to you and the housekeeper which hopefully will be addressed for future guests. In particular I would have liked to have had a couple more ovenproof dishes and at least one non stick pan. I find most holiday cottages do not provide the latter but I would find it useful as I do like to cook for myself and I ate out more than I planned because the kitchen was a bit basic. The information pack on the cottage and on activities in the area was very good. The only thing that wasn't clear was whether guests had access to the washing machine which was in the shed and as such I didn't use it. If it is part of the facilities would have been good to know. Aside from these issues I had a lovely time in the cottage and it was a comfortable and cosy place to return to after a day walking in rather unfriendly weather. I am sure had I been there earlier in the summer when the weather had been so settled I would probably have thought I was in heaven and not ventured beyond the glorious beach.

The property

Creagorry 4.2 miles.

Occupying a wonderful setting near Iochdar on the Isle of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides is this simply magical thatched cottage, Cuir-na-Bhoir.

The ultimate hideaway for couples, Cuir-na-Bhoir is small but perfectly formed and its signature thatched roof helps to set the tone for this enchanting property.

The traditional Hebridean cottage offers its guests warm and welcoming accommodation.

Inside, there is an open-plan living space with the inviting sitting area offering a homely sanctuary with snug seating, attractive cushions and throws and a feature fireplace, all adding up to create a truly idyllic space to hide away from the world.

The compact but well-equipped kitchen comes with everything needed to create a romantic meal for two and you can imagine enjoying candlelit meals here while enjoying spending quality time together.

The views of the surrounding ocean are simply sublime no matter what time of day or year so grab a jumper, a steaming cup of hot chocolate and snuggle up with your loved one while soaking up those unforgettable views.

As the sun sets and evening descends, retire to the sumptuously appointed bedroom for a refreshing night’s sleep.

Waking up to views from the bedroom of the ocean waves crashing is surely a holiday memory to treasure.

The cottage provides the perfect base for exploring so whether it’s checking out the gorgeous beaches right on the doorstep, having a go at fishing, getting your binoculars out and going birdwatching or heading over to the Hebridean Jewellery café within a short walk, there’s plenty to do without the need to venture far.

However, if you are up for a day trip then hop in the car and get ready for some amazing views.

Benbecula is well worth a visit where you can go otter spotting, take a ride along the beach at Uist Community Riding School or play golf on the 18-hole golf course which boasts some spectacular views.

Head further north where you will find the Isle of North Uist which also loads going on including the bustling town of Lochmaddy which is only half an hour’s drive from the cottage and has a good selection of shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants and from here you can catch a boat to the Isle of Skye if you want to carry on exploring the wonderful islands of the Outer Hebrides.

The Isle of South Uist can be reached by ferry from Oban to Lochboisdale, or from Uig on Skye to Lochmaddy.

This ferry docks at Lochmaddy on North Uist, which is connected to South Uist by causeway.

The ferry is operated by Calmac Ferries.

Alternatively, you can fly to Benbecula airport, which is also connected by causeway to South Uist.For the romantic getaway of a lifetime, a visit to Cuir-na-Bhoir promises to deliver.
