The Outer Hebrides is one of the most amazing locations to visit. With a variety of rolling backgrounds and some of the most amazing views there are few comparable places to captivate the senses and the imagination.

If you thought the Outer Hebrides was an expensive location to get to, we are delighted to be able to tell you about the cut in ferry fares to the islands. Road Equivalent Tariff is with us meaning that the cost of travelling on Calmac ferries from Oban to Barra and South Uist; Uig in Skye to Harris and North Uist and Ullapool to Stornoway have been slashed. The return cost of getting a car and 2 people to the islands will now only cost you from £65.

Take the opportunity to experience our unique culture, hospitality and absolute freedom - and surprise yourself!.

Benbecula Island

This part of the Western Isles has a charm all of its own. The islands seem to be split down the middle: boggy moors and craggy hills rule the east, whilst the west is softened by a sandy coastline and green pasture. If it's beaches you want, there are plenty of them to choose from. If you want to go hiking, remember that it can be very wet underfoot, but there are tracks in some places. In fact it's hard to tell whether the moorland is sprinkled with lochs or the sea dotted with islands. On a sunny day, the landscape is truly sparkling.

The main road runs down the middle of this chain of islands from Lochmaddy to Lochboisdale. There is a local coach service and post bus. It is also a great place to cycle - start in the south and pedal your way north up the islands.

North Uist and South Uist both have nature reserves and are full of ancient monuments - many dating back thousands of years. Benbecula is a small island sandwiched between the Uists and linked by a stone causeway. Its main claim to fame is the airport and Army rocket range.

The North Uist Highland Games are usually planned for mid July, followed by the South Uist Highland Games. Agricultural Shows take place on North and South Uist around late July or early August. North Uist hosts the Twin Peaks Race in early August too. The annual Ceolas (Gaelic music festival / summer school) is held in South Uist in July.

“Wonderful Cottage, good central base for the Outer Hebrides.”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2013

Had a brilliant week at the cottage. I was greeted by Mary and Charlie who showed me round the cottage and where to find everything. The cottage had almost everything I needed, the only surprise was the lack of an oven, only a small counter top "oven" but everything else was perfect! As a bird watcher and dog owner the cottage fitted my needs. The cottage itself is beautiful. Large fenced off garden which I could let my Jack Russell wander around worry free, Wood burner with real hebrideian peat to burn, wonderfully comfy bed, lots of storage for cloths in the bedroom too. good spacious living room with huge television and DVD player and best of all, internet access, so I could post all my photos on face book as I took them. I will enquiring soon about booking again next year! thanks Violet!

“beautiful cottage in amazing location :)”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2012

We arrived on Uist by ferry for a long weekend, violet couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The cottage was so cosy and plesant and had all mod cons including a wood burning stove with real peats to burn! Located in benbecula meant the cottage was in a central location for touring the north and south islands. Lovely restaurant/Takeaway called the stepping stones in benbecula where you will also find shops, banks etc... We loved our time in the cottage and have already booked again for later in the year!
