“Idyllic Place in a luxury cottage”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 for a stay in October 2013
person found this review helpful

A beautifully appointed cottage, well furnished for a very comfortable holiday. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are well appointed. The garage is a useful place to change out of muddy boots. There are lovely walks from the cottage to the local beach. Further afield are great lunch places such as Claddach Kirkiebost centre or the Lobster Pot on Berneray. The shops at Sollas or Bayhead sell everything you need.
The cottage is in a lovely position to visit South Uist, Benbecula and Eriskay and a lovely day can be spent driving down the causeways linking the islands.
Whilst we spent our two weeks at Tranquil Sands the BBC said it would be very wet but we only had one wet day although it rained at night. We love North Uist and are returning to this cottage in May to enjoy spring on Uist having been there in Autumn and summer.
