  • "Wonderful location, all the household facilities and appliances you could want, lots and lots of space, very, very clean."

    The housekeeper extremely kind and helpful when we had a problem.

The cottage has been upgraded with some new furniture for the 2022 season and we look forward to welcoming you back.

  • "Very nice cottage on the beautiful North Uist."

    Great location to go to beaches, go birdwatching, and many of the other things to do on the islands. St. Kilda can be seen from the cottage on clear days and sunsets are great!

    St-Kilda is 38 miles West of the Kitchen window. As you know, the beaches are white coral sand, and the Atlantic sunsets are inspirational. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was in a lovely location and well equipped."

    Unfortunately it wasn’t very clean and considering the current climate when you expect even higher standards it is disappointing to find a filthy oven and having to wash a lot of the mugs, cutlery and plates due to dubious cleanliness. There was also lots of dust, and the mattresses were in need of renewing. I would also expect mattress covers on beds that are used regularly by different people. That said we had a great stay on a beautiful island just probably won’t be returning to that cottage.

    We have a new Housekeeper and have replaced all worn items. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely holiday in St Kilda cottage."

    It’s a lovely house, well equipped and comfortable. Lots of stunning places to see. An ideal location to visit all of the Outer Hebrides.

    It had everything you could need and included all those smalls things that really make a difference like sufficient towels, soaps & dishwasher tablets.

The property

Lochmaddy 16 miles.

St Kilda is a detached cottage situated on a working croft farm in a rural location on the magical Isle of North Uist.

The cottage has bright and spacious accommodation which is mostly set across the ground floor.

There is a country-style farmhouse kitchen which is very well-equipped with an American-style fridge/freezer, range oven for preparing delicious home-cooked meals and laundry facilities.

There is also a dining area in this room.

The comfortable and spacious sitting room has an impressive fireplace housing an open peat fire for those evenings indoors after a long walk out and about with a relaxing glass of wine.

The three bedrooms, two doubles and a twin room are also on the ground floor along with a bathroom.

On the first floor you will find a large family/dining room which has an extensive library of sporting and fishing books and board games along with a Smart tv and a leather sofa to relax in whilst either reading a good book or watching your favourite tv program, a Star Gazer telescope and Velux windows which provide fantastic views across the Balranald RSBP nature reserve and lochs with duns and ancient archaeological sites.

The cottage is set within 10-acres of grounds with views of open farmland, hills and the sea while St Kilda Island is clearly visible in the distance.

Situated just 3/4 of a mile from a series of sweeping horseshoe-shaped white coral sandy bays, this is a fabulous location.

With a mostly flat landscape, North Uist offers thousands of lochs with an excellent fishing loch being just 300 yards from the property, this is the perfect location for fishing enthusiasts.

A few other great activities you can enjoy whilst on your holiday include St Kilda cruises, bird watching, golf and salmon/sea trout fishing.

St Kilda is the ideal choice for a rural and relaxing retreat in an untouched location.

About the location


Balivanich 18 miles.

The village of Lochmaddy is the terminus for the daily ferry linking it to Uig on the Isle of Skye and it is also the main centre of population for the island of North Uist. Lochmaddy has good facilities and services including a selection of hotels serving fresh local produce in their dining rooms. A visit to the award-winning museum and arts centre located in the centre of Lochmaddy is a must, and there is also a tourist office full of information about local events and places to visit. The road south of Lochmaddy will lead you to the village of Carinish some 10 miles away and if you continue on this road you can cross the causeway to the island of Benbecula. The town of Balivanich in Benbecula offers shops, post office, a bank, restaurant, a petrol station and an airport, from which car hire can be arranged. The causeway from Benbecula then leads onward to the island of South Uist.
