We has a fantastic week in the Uists, staying at Culla Cottage. The cottage is well located and a great base for exploring the islands, with a beach within a stone's throw of the door.
Everything inside the cottage has been done to a really high standard - great modern kitchen and bathroom, and cosy sofas after a day of walking! The fact that Donald has restored his family's cottage makes it all the more interesting, and we enjoyed looking at photos of the project to rebuild it to its current condition.
Can't recommend this cottage highly enough - a great place to return to each day after exploring the islands!
We are just back after a great week staying at Culla Cottage. Everything you need for a relaxing stay and our dog loved the fact we were 2 minutes from the beach . Cottage has been beautifully renovated and we will certainly go back to our little bit of paradise Thanks to Donald for making us so welcome don't just look book you won't be disappointed.
We had an amazing week in Culla Cottage, a traditional cottage that has been beautifully done up and is perfect for 'hygge'! The location is superb (it's right next to a really nice beach) and ideal for exploring the different islands. The Balivanich town has a small but well-stocked supermarket and is only a few minutes drive away. The beaches on the islands are truly spectacular; we especially liked the west beach on Berneray. Other highlights included climbing Beinn Mhor (the highest point on South Uist) and a day trip to Barra (bring your bikes!).
Donald was such a nice and welcoming host. On our arrival, there was some smoked salmon in the fridge and a small hamper with local goodies. Donald also bought us an OS map, when we told him we wanted to climb Beinn Mhor. Overall we can't recommend this place highly enough and we hope to be back soon!
We had a lovely long break at Culla cottage. The cottage was beautiful and had everything you needed. Very handy shops just 5 minutes away and a beautiful beach just yards from the door. The dog especially loved it and I think she was a bit disappointed to be home.
Wow! Can't recommend Culla Cottage enough. We had a fantastic stay (although too short) and enjoyed exploring the beautiful surroundings nearby in the day and then cosy in front of the peat burner at night. Absolutely stunning! Can't wait to come back.
Thank you Donald and Sheena.
