  • "The best rental we have had."

    It wasn't only an impressive property it was well equipped with everything you needed. We took food with us and self catered and had all of the kitchen equipment we needed. The location was great not only local owls and even a white tailed Eagle flew over. Mountains and coast are a short drive away. We had a super break here for a week.

    Thank you for your kind words! Hope you are well and rested! Property Owner

    Good base to explore Eriskay, Berneray, Benbecula as well as the local area. Beaches are stunning, and stargazing here is amazing; a week isn't long enough - will definitely return :-)

  • "An excellent base to explore N and S Uist, Eriskay & Barra."

    There is no where better to see birds. From the kitchen/living room you are guaranteed to see Sea Eagles, Hen Harriers Short Eared Owls and golden eagles. A mile or so down the road there’s some of the best Machair in Scotland and the magnificent walk up Beinn Mhor is a short drive away, as is the excellent museum. The big windows enable you to look across the Machair to the sea, a great place to watch the changing light and weather and spectacular sunrises/sunsets. The place is very tastefully designed - lovely paintings, crockery, blinds etc. and one of the best equipped cottages we’ve ever been to with high spec equipment. There are several beautiful photographic books which helpfully inform you about the history and culture of S Uist. We also loved the three handsome chickens wandering around. The next door hosts are also delightful. We can’t recommend this place enough.

  • "The cottage is well laid-out and had all the equipment we required, and the owner was friendly and helpful."

    However, there was no information booklet containing information such as waste disposal, recycling, restaurants, shopping and supermarkets, doctors and health needs, etc. Perhaps you could consider making this a requirement for all LHH properties. The situation of the cottage was not as attractive as other LHH properties we have use, being closely next door to the owner’s home, and with a chicken run very close by. Unfortunately, we had to leave a day early due to Calmac cancellations. We had told the owner a few days earlier but were unable to find her on our morning of departure to thank her. Please pass on our thanks.

  • "Lovely cottage with excellent facilities."

    The hosts were fabulous and we very much enjoyed our week on the islands. The cottage has games, books, maps and a fully equipped kitchen, everything you need for a comfortable and convenient stay.

    Just wish we could persuade the sun to visit more often! Property Owner

The property

Daliburgh 5.8 miles.

Boasting a fabulous setting in the heart of South Uist close to Daliburgh is this gorgeous barn conversion, Ceannard Cottage.

Perfect for families or couples holidaying together, the cottage is situated within a traditional crofting community and offers guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in island life and Gaelic culture.

The property has been finished to a high standard and has been carefully designed to maximise the panoramic views.

The open-plan living area offers impressive views on all sides and invites visitors into a truly welcoming space with the sitting area positioned around the feature windows.

Here, you can imagine getting warm and comfy after a day of outdoor activities, taking in the ever-changing views and catching up with loved ones.

The room offers a wonderfully social space with the well-equipped kitchen close by and where the designated chef can rustle up delicious meals using local ingredients found right on the doorstep.

The elegant dining area is perfect for sitting down together and enjoying a long, languid meal and making the most of being on holiday.

The stylish bedrooms offer the ultimate sanctuary when bedtime calls with a king-size with en-suite wet room and a super-king-size which can be made into a twin bedroom on request, offering you the flexibility to adapt the property to your holiday needs.

It is all about the views here at Ceannard Cottage and the house offers 360 degree vistas which are breath-taking and evolve throughout the day as the weather and light change, making the cottage gardens a wonderful spot to breathe in the invigorating Hebridean air and really absorb the delights of the outdoors.

Despite its rural setting, Ceannard Cottage is the perfect base for exploring the island of South Uist, either on foot with hiking a popular pastime in the area where you can see traditional crofting at first hand and look out for some fantastic birds both resident on the island and migratory so make sure you have your binoculars on hand!

If you are a keen cyclist then make the most of the quiet single-track roads which form part of the Hebridean Way and really get exploring with beaches aplenty along the way.

Find out more about the history of the island with a visit to Kildonan Museum which is a short drive away and visit one of a number of fascinating sites of historical interest including Caistel Bheagram, Ormacleit Castle and Calvay Castle.

Take a day trip to the isle of Barra where you will find a wealth of activities including visiting Kisimul Castle, the ‘castle in the sea’, strolling along any of the fantastic beaches or browsing around the island’s main town of Castlebay.

For an authentic holiday, you can truly get away from it all at Ceannard Cottage.

The islands can be reached by flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness; or by ferry from Uig on Skye to Lochmaddy, or Oban to Lochboisdale.

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.
