“The minute you step inside you can relax”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We loved Rowan cottage.
It was prefect for a family with 3 kids.
The kitchen was really well appointed- better than my own kitchen
The entrance/porch area perfect for the dogs to stay in as well as a place to dry and place all our wet clothes, wetsuits, sandy shoes/ wellies.
Gorgeous views, ever changing skies and landscape.

“THE WONDERFUL NORTH UIST HOLIDAY COTTAGE”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

A totally awesome experience. Based at Rowan Cottage Ive seen weather come from all directions. A diversity of beautiful sunny days, grey moody and atmospheric skies rolling over the bay, to full on gales where your pleased to be sat round the log burner staring across loch maddy.

Ive seen wildlife of every type, birds I cant even identify, Buzzards, Sea Eagles, Whooper Swans and various wading birds. Ive seen Otters, Stags and so much more. The sandy beaches and clear waters could lead you to believe you were in The Maldives, but pack an extra coat just incase ;-)

Perhaps the highlight of my stay was a full nights display of The North Lights. Certainly one of the most amazing moments of my life.

Total Luxury with amazing mother nature and a wild environment right outside the door.

“Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Rowan cottage is extremely well appointed and offers a superbly comfortable stay. The views and settings are stunning and the sunrises are spectacular. I was lucky enough to see Stags and deer in the next field, but never saw the elusive Otters. North Uist is a wonderfully sparse setting and easily accessible for the beautiful Berneray (3 mile beach upon which I saw no-one), Benbecula, South Uist and the stunning Eriskay. Will definitely be going again.

“Rooms with a view!”
Reviewed 27 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A great house, comfortable and spacious. Well equipped with quality fixtures and fittings. The house is warm even without the log burner. But the real Wow! Factor is the amazing view from every window. You are drawn to the "life of the loch" as the tides change. We saw seals, waders and birds of prey from the garden. Sitting at the picnic table just watching could take up your whole stay!

“Excellent standard of accommodation and perfect location”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

One of the best holiday cottages I have stayed in. Furnished to a high standard and well equipped for a week's stay. Dog friendly cottage and ideally situated for day trips and beach walks.
