Seal Cottage is situated at the shore of Loch Eynort on the East coast of South Uist, offering excellent views of Loch Eyenort and the surrounding hillsides. It is a renowned area for spotting all kinds of wildlife, including otters, seals, sea eagles and other birdlife.

The Cottage is opposite a small peninsula, a piece of land that juts out into the sealoch. The peninsula is a hundred yards or in length, fifty yards offshore at the end is a small island mostly covered by the incoming tide, seals bask there, at some times of the year a hundred seals can be easily counted in the loch. Mostly this land are is just used by anyone staying at the Cottage or our Chalet. You can listen to the seals singing and watch the seabirds.

Across the loch are hills, and behind the cottage are more hills, there is lots of scope for walking! Just a mile or two away are glorious white sand beaches.

A short drive of no more than four miles away is the Askernish Golf Course, this historic course was designed by Old Tom Morris, and now fully restored, has become one of the finest links courses in Scotland giving any keen golfer a challenge! The course lies along the South Uist Machair and those who would prefer a walk can stroll the sands or wander amongst the wildflowers and hear the seals singing from a small island out in the sea.
