  • "We had an amazing week on Uist made possible by this lovely house ."

    It contained everything possible you could imagine and perfectly presented. We didn’t need to contact the owner but it was made clear that if we had any issues they were on hand. We’ve used Sykes on many occasions and never been less than very happy but Sea Spray is quite simply PERFECT.

    Dear Yvonne, Thank you so much for your wonderful Feedback. We are so glad you and yours had such a great visit. We hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "A fantastic comfortable place to stay with views to die for."

    We did struggle to find the property in the dark using the instructions. They are inaccurate but this was the only issue we had!

    Thank you kindly for your feedback. I will ask the LHH/ SYKES to adjust the directions to the cottage . I will speak to them on Monday. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay , the islands are a very special places. My Best regards John Mackinnon Property Owner

  • "Lovely clean, well equipped cottage in a beautiful location."

    Really nice stay Some cars may struggle a little getting up the driveway, but other than that, it was a perfect place to stay

    Dear Jason, Thank you for your kind feedback. The house was my pipedream, I am just glad people are getting to enjoy it . Christine who does a brilliant job of doing the changeover work will be pleased by your comments. My plan is to build either a concrete road or Tarmac road up to the house in the off season . I am also hoping to have the fencing etc completed in November/ December. My best regards and perhaps we will see you again John Mackinnon Property Owner

  • "Probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in - Thank you."

    Sykes need do need to revisit their directions to the property however which are a little misleading. On joining the B888 you travel 4 miles then turn left and travel a further 2 miles. You also need to advise people that there is no nameplate outside so taking a picture of it may be sensible

    Dear George, I am sorry I did not reply to your feedback until now, I was not well for a while there but I have recovered thank god. Thank you kindly for your review we are so very pleased that Sea Spray was the best we will endeavour to keep it that way and hopefully better as time passes by . It is great that you pointed out to directions problem. I will contact Sykes about this. I am trying to source a name plate to put at the bottom of the road. The person who used to make the photo name plates on the Islands is no longer available. I will be contacting LHH ? Sykes to ask them if they know a company on the mainland that they can recommend. There are projects in place for the house and its surroundings, 1/ I hope to have a fence built around the house later this year. You may have seen the initial prep work that the fencer has done. We have a problem with sheep straying into the village and try as we might we cant manage to stop them at this time so I have had to begin the fencing project to stop them getting around the house. 2/ I am hoping that a concrete or tarmac road will be built up to the house this winter as the surface in place was a temporary measure when we were building the house. My very kind regards John Mackinnon Property Owner

  • "Seaspray is a perfect holiday cottage, clean, comfortable, spacious, very well equipped and in a good place to explore Eriskay, the Uists and Benbecula."

    It's also a good place to sit and enjoy the spectacular views to Barra, Eriskay and Rhum. Thank you also for the generous and unexpected welcome pack.

  • "This is a beatiful home and from the moment we arrived, we were blown away with both the home and the location."

    On arrival, the supplies and treats left be the owner, John, and Christine, were really appreciated and very sweet. The views out across crystal blue waters of The Sound of Barra, to Barra itself, Eriskay and the distant mountains on the mainland, are breathtaking. The cottage itself is really well appointed and everything feels premium. There are plenty of places to visit and eat, the ferry to Barra is 10 minutes away and a day trip there, including a visit to the airport for the daily Otter flight from Glasgow, is a must. As you can see from the pictures, we were also gifted a night with the Aurora Borealis, an amazing sight. Eagles, dolphins, seals and otters were also spotted. In short, our whole week was, "breathtaking!"

    This was a lovely cottage in beautiful National Scenic area in South Uist. The cottage was immaculately clean with comfortable beds and lovely spacious open plan living area. The kitchen was great with lots of space and storage. Wish mine was that good! The views from the sitting area are just outstanding and it is very close to the causeway across to Eriskay. Lovely, friendly pub in Eriskay with delicious food. Really enjoyed our first visit to this part of the Outer Hebrides and would definitely be happy to stay at Sea Spray cottage again.

    Everything was just perfect! From the views whilst sitting in the lounge to the super comfy beds, spotlessly clean, super cosy and a welcoming hamper on arrival.

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.
