  • "We had a great stay in this little property."

    It was cosy, clean, well furnished and lovely to wake up to such a stunning view. It was particularly great for the kids who loved popping out to the playground next to the house, and around to the little all-weather football pitch around the corner. A great base for exploring the Uist’s - and we particularly loved Eriskay and the beaches there. Had a nice meal at Am Politician on Eriskay. Would definitely stay here again.

    Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday. Our very best regards Property Owner

  • "Such a lovely home which has been cleverly set up to give a really comforting and relaxing experience."

    We enjoyed our time there in a very well-equipped cottage that had stunning views. The only thing to be aware of is that there is a washing machine not washer/dryer. We will definitely hope to stay there again if visiting South Uist.

  • "Although in a fairly residential area it was quiet and beautifully appointed."

    Parking available (although a neighbour was parked in there to start with!) and if you have children there is a play park right under the window and a basketball court up the road :) Really enjoyed the stay and the cottage was lovely

  • "This was a lovely holiday cottage and a great base for all that South Uist has to offer."

    It was comfortable, well equipped and very light and airy. The porch is great for storing walking and swimming gear. Highly recommended.

  • "What a treat to stay in this beautiful house!"

    We’ve absolutely loved our stay here and were sorry to leave. This house has made an excellent base from which to explore these gorgeous Islands. We loved the proximity to the Ferry port and Marina. The house is immaculately clean, comfortable and well equipped, we have felt completely at home. The little extras provided were a lovely touch. The ever changing views from the cleverly designed windows were beautiful. We used the binoculars provided to watch the birds, deer, seals and fish jumping in the sea all from the comfort of the sofa. We were able to charge our electric car in the parking space provided. The walk to the hotel and pub was 3 minutes away where we enjoyed a local gin and fresh seafood. The play park and the most picturesque football pitch in Scotland was very handy for the kids to explore! We will definitely be back!

    Thank you so much for your kind review Fiona. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday. Perhaps we will see you again. Our very best regards Property Owner

  • "The property was beautifully furnished and extremely well equipped."

    We had absolutely everything we needed plus loads more! We were a little disappointed with the setting of the property as the photos had been rather cleverly set up to omit the housing estate in the background to the front. The photos made the property look as if it was on its own in a very wild location, however this was not the case. We were surrounded by houses to the front and a rather rundown and broken play park to the rear and felt very overlooked from all directions. The view to the rear of the property (beyond the play park) was stunning though and made up for the disappointment. The property provided a brilliant base from which to explore the Uists and Eriskay, and we absolutely loved the raw and rugged landscapes and beaches. Despite the disappointing location, we would consider returning to the property in the future, purely because of the ease of access to the ferry port and the comfort it provided us during our stay.

    Hello Sarah, Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed our newly refurbished property, the views and the close proximity to the ferry terminal. We have taken new photographs that provide a better understanding of the area. We look forward to perhaps seeing you again. Best Regards Property Owner

Beinn Mhor View is a beautifully-appointed, single-storey cottage resting in a quiet cul de sac among other properties on Kenneth Drive in Lochboisdale.

It makes a convenient holiday spot, especially for those who may wish to save the expense of traveling with a car to the Western Isles.

Surrounded by rugged beauty on the island of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides, the cottage is a homely, contemporary base with mountain views to explore the great outdoors in comfort.

Two off-road parking spaces greet you at the foot of this lovely dwelling, equipped with an external charging port for those traveling with electric vehicles.

Inside you'll find a stylish open plan kitchen/diner/living room, fully-equipped with a full range of pots, pans, crockery, glassware and baking equipment, for preparing home-cooked meals and picnics, with marvellous views of Beinn Mhor and a rustic wooden breakfast bar to savour your morning coffee; a collection of herbs, spices, tea, coffee and condiments are lovingly provided for your use.

In the warmer months, make mealtimes an alfresco affair and gather together with a seat at the picnic benches.

Retire to the sitting room after a long day trekking the island where a plush corner sofa invites you to put your feet up in front of the TV.

Hang your towel on the heated towel rail in the sleek shower room and wash the day away, before retiring to one of three bedrooms; two doubles and a bunk bed are all thoughtfully decorated with bedside lamps for late night readers.

Wander into the centre of Lochboisdale to dine at the Lochboisdale Hotel, or stroll along the marina and decide the day's adventure; the ferry terminal takes you to Mallaig or Oban, whilst outdoor enthusiasts can try their hand at paddle boarding, loch fishing or hike up the Uist hills; torches and binoculars can be found at Beinn Mhor View for night time exploring.

Hire a bike or jump in the car to explore more of the spectacular island by road causeway, from the islands of Eriskay, Benbecula and Grimsay to attractions such as Askernish Golf Course and the Kildonan Museum.
