A surprise stay in this beautiful cottage as a late birthday present. Warm, cosy & comfortable, a short walk from beautiful culla bay and local amenities.
The only bad thing about culla cottage is having to leave.
Culla Cottage is simply perfect. The home itself is beautiful, the location is stunning, and Donald and Sheena are the perfect hosts. We absolutely LOVED our stay and look forward to returning as soon as possible. The cottage has been completely renovated and the attention to detail, care, craftsmanship and love that went into re-doing this family croft is amazing. This lovely home away from home has everything you need for the perfect vacation. HIGHLY recommend this cottage to anyone planning a visit to the Outer Hebrides, for short or extended stays. You will definitely fall in love with both the home and the island.
Culla cottage is a beautifully and tastefully refurbished "black house" with all the amenities, comforts and mod cons you could wish for. Situated in Benbecula, its also a perfect base for exploring both N and S.Uist, with all the attractions within less than an hour's drive - and many closer. If you don;t want to drive it is also within just a few yards of one of the many beautiful sandy beaches on the west coast. Despite its peaceful and relatively isolated location it is also only a few minutes drive away from some of the best facilities (shops, restaurants etc) on the islands. The owner (who lovingly rebuilt and refurbished his parents original black house) was most helpful.
We stayed in Culla Cottage for two weeks and found it a great, well-equipped, comfortable cottage. It's situated right next to a lovely (and generally empty) beach facing onto the Atlantic with distant views of the Stephenson-built lighthouse on the Monach Islands.
The cottage is located very near Balivanich, which while it won't perhaps win any beauty awards, does have a good supermarket, a restaurant and all the things you need on your doorstep. Generally, it's a very central location with easy access to the Uists and surrounding islands.
The owners are very hospitable and I would highly recommend Culla Cottage if you want a cosy base for exploring the Outer Hebrides.
I had an great time in Culla Cottage. The location right next to the dunes and the beach is amazing. The cottage itself has been renovated lovingly and is very cozy and comfortable with a great kitchen (luxurious appliances throughout). The hospitality was second to none! Thank you again, Donald and Sheena! Hopefully until next time!
