Needed somewhere very close to Lochboisdale pier for an early departure the following morning. I received a very warm welcome and a really good pot of Yorkshire tea and slice of cake. The room was comfortable and warm. I would highly recommend.

We stayed with Morag and Alistair for two nights. They were very welcoming and friendly. There was a beautiful lounge overlooking the loch, which was lovely to sit in and relax. The bedroom was very comfortable and quiet and we had two lovely nights rest. Breakfast was so good that there was no need for lunch. The whole house was...

We've been on a cycle trip on the Hebridean Cycleway from Lewis down to Barra. As we arrived on South Uist the beautiful weather condition changed so that we have to look for a room instead of camping ground. And what we've found was MacDonalds Home, called Loch Side Cottage. It was a really great, warm welcome and home-like stay....

Stayed for a night whilst delivering material to a building site. Lovely couple Alastair and Morag couldn't be more welcoming. Morag made a lovely evening meal and a beautiful breakfast. I would recommend this b and b to anyone visiting the island.

The hosts Morag and Alastair looked after us so well! Tea and cakes on arrival and, for one of us, very tasty haddock and poached egg for breakfast... The little property really is loch-side and there's a handy pub up the road!

We booked this Guest House last minute on our way up the Outer Hebrides for one night..Many B & B's and Guest Houses are closing up for October but luckily we managed to book a room here. Morag is a fantastic host and a wonderful cook. We stayed one night in a double room with a shared bathroom just outside...

My husband had a particular interest in the former Alginates factory and Morag & Angus were very helpful in pinpointing the location & discussing the history. Bed and bathroom comfortable and clean, breakfast cooked to order.

I have just returned from a family break at Lochside Cottage.I cannot speak highly enough of Alisdair and Morag, they couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and part of the family. After a day out we were greeted with tea and cakes which we devoured in the conservatory overlooking the loch.A really cosy room with a lovely atmosphere.Also...

Morag runs a wonderful house and B&B. Nice room with spacious (and shared) bathroom. Breakfast is tasty and more than plenty! Be prepared for light and friendly banter by Morag - who also has a big heart for dripping wet hikers like us - we were presented with a wonderfully hot and tasty soup upon returning. We stayed during storm...
