“Tranquil by Name - Tranquil by Nature”
Reviewed 16 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

person found this review helpful

Tranquil Sands is located in a amazing location with wonderful views from every room. The furnishings are of a high quality and the kitchen is extremely well equipped. The outside has a decked area and is perfect for relaxing and bird watching from your garden chair. White Tailed Eagles flew over the cottage on several occasions. The beach is very close by and over our 2 week stay we saw 3 people on it. The location is well situated for exploring the Islands and very close to the RSPB reserve at Baranald. We were very lucky with our weather as we had no rain and many days of warm sunshine. Tranquil cottage certainly lives up to its name, it is very relaxing and a special place to stay.

Situated in a beautiful peaceful location.
The house is an immaculately clean, modern, comfortable and well equipped place to stay.
It delivers everything promised on the comprehensive and informative website.
Ideally situated to access all areas of The Uists, with short inexpensive ferries to Barra, Lewis and Harris.
We stocked local shops with petrol and diesel readily available.
Helpful and friendly locals and several places to eat.
