“A little peace of heaven”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

An Taigh Soilleir was exactly as described on the website - beautifully equipped and well located with staggering views from every window. This was our first visit to South Uist and from the house we were easily able to drive to every corner of the island, Benbecula, North Uist, Eriskay and (by ferry) to Barra. We cycled the quiet side roads and walked the beaches and machir, all with the certain knowledge that we had a wonderfully luxurious house to return to and relax in. During the long summer evenings of June, it was a delight to sit in the porch and watch the sunset - at 10.45 pm!
We loved the chance to see the birds and wildlife on the island, sometimes close at hand, with a corncrake right outside the bedroom window one evening.
This is not a place to go if you want to dine out every night (although there are a couple of good restaurants not too far away), nor if you are looking for wild evenings of entertainment. But if you are seeking a place to unwind and relax, it can't be bettered.

“Perfect base to explore the Hebrides”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just come back from a weeks stay along with two friends, one of whom booked this property, which we used as a base to explore N and S Uist, Benbecula, Barra, Vatersay, Eriskay. I can only commend the standard of the cottage, which had three excellent bedrooms two with en-suite wet rooms as well as separate bath room, an open plan large lounge, dining room and kitchen, all of which were to a very high standard. There was also an upstairs study come additional bedroom with stunning views. The location was only a few minutes from the causeway over to Benbecula where a Cooperative supermarket was located. Every facility was provided and it made our stay very comfortable and a perfect base to explore the islands. We even had a resident corncrake in the rear garden who regularly made an appearance and enabled us to get some rare photos. The only negative was that a week here was too short.

“The perfect place to stay on Uist”
Reviewed April 25, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Wonderful location, immaculately kept and has everything you could possibly need for a break away from it all!

We had 6 people stay and even then it felt spacious, with large rooms, a massive kitchen and two living room areas to relax in.

And as a very 'connected' person I was thrilled by the quality of the internet, being able to stream live content with few issues.

We had a fantastic break. I can honestly say the cottage is the nicest we have stayed in over 20 or more years we have been visiting Scotland. That combined with the stunning beaches, wildlife and solitude made for a wonderful holiday.

The cottage is equipped to a superb standard and the views from all the windows are fantastic. We will return in the coming years, so much more to explore, a week is not enough.

“1 word to describe this house. ..MAGNIFICENT.”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Myself, hubby, daughter, son in law, sister, brother in law & not forgetting lovely grandaughter who only stayed part of week as she just travelled back from Barcelona were stunned when we entered this magnificent house. After having checked it out previously on the internet it was just the way we all imanigined it to be ..Beautiful house in beautiful location. We went up for a wedding & it was a joy to return to lovely house after eating & drinking night away as we only came off the ferry that day. The rest off the week was just as good. It was that good we have already booked again for next year. I could go on & on but don't you try it out for yourself & can assure you won't be disappointed in any way.
