The Hebrides/Skye region
The Outer Hebrides are an island chain on the Atlantic west coast of Scotland. The west coast is lined by award winning sandy beaches which rival any of those at home or abroad. The east coast, in contrast, covers its rocky shoreline with purple heather in late summer.
South Uist, Outer Hebrides, has miles of the most amazing and peaceful beaches and hills where you can unwind from the hectic pace of life in another world. Whether you are looking to escape for a romantic break in the Hebrides, play the Old Tom Morris golf course, fish the hundreds of lochs, relax and unwind or experience the magic of the Hebrides - Corrodale Cottage will treat you to them all.
The west coast of South Uist looks onto the Atlantic Ocean with a magnificant beaches. These unspoilt sandy beaches offer amazing views of the Ocean and beautiful views of the Hills of South Uist. South Uist is the second largest of the islands in the Western Isles, measuring some 22 miles north to south and 7 miles from east to west. The geography is divided into a series of north-south strips, each running the length of the island. The west coast faces onto the Atlantic and comprises around 20 miles of beach, broken only by a headland at the half-way point. Behind the beach is a strip of machair, or grassy duneland. East again is a strip containing a vast number of small fresh water lochans, and a series of dispersed crofting townships.
The surrounding Atlantic and the Minch are home to many migrating whales and dolphins which feed in these rich waters during the summer, and where the fisherman catches lobster, prawn and crab for the table and foreign markets of Europe. Each island in the Uists has its own distinctive character which shapes the nature of the people, animals and plants that make it their home, but every island shares the quality and magic that makes the Uists such a wonderful place to visit.
Loch Druidibeg, South Uist, nature reserve has over 200 species of flowering plants some of which are considered nationally scarce. In addition to flowers the reserve is also home to the wildfowl and waders. Golden eagle, hen harrier and merlin are often seen over the moor while corncrake and cornbunting frequent the machair on the west coast. The reserve is full of contrasts.
