“The perfect wilderness cottage”

We stayed at Rowan Cottage for a week in August 2014 and had a week of typically mixed, island weather. We loved the Cottage! It is beautifully decorated and furnished and has a cosy feel. The views over the sea loch towards Skye are stunning. It was great to have a telescope to view the wildlife from the comfort of the living room. We had a harbour seal perch on rocks in the loch in front of the cottage every morning. Other wildlife spots just off main road on the island a mile or so away from Rowan Cottage included a rare, short eared owl and 4 stags.
Having brought half of a Tesco's extra with us thinking there would be a dearth of food and provisions to buy on Uist we were astonished to find 2 Co-op stores in Sollas ( few miles away) and Benbecula (neighbouring island) were cornucopias of gourmet delights!!
Plenty of tea rooms, cafés and hotels within a short drive away offering excellent local food,
particularly the sea food.
The main reason to come to the Uist's is to get out into the landscape, enjoying long walks on probably the most beautiful and deserted beaches you will find anywhere in the world. We spent a day travelling around Harris having taken the ferry across from Berneray, a 10 minute drive from the cottage.Whilst Harris is gorgeous, North Uist won our hearts.

We are so glad you enjoyed what Rowan cottage had to offer. The best beaches on North Uist can sometimes take some finding as they are hidden away, but once found are amazing! Thanks for leaving your review kind regards Chris

“Perfect location, excellent scenery and easy to book”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Not far from the ferry terminal, Rowan Cottage is the perfect find. The cottage is really cosy and well equipped and has amazing views of the Isle of Skye and Harris. There is a telescope which I was lucky to see Stag from and an otter or two.
It is close to some lovely beaches and local amenities, such as the library/visitor centre. I will definitely be staying here again.
