“A Delightful Cottage”

Our first visit to the Hebrides where we arrived in rain having journeyed through rain for the previous day! So, the peat fire, and splendid provisions, flowers etc were an excellent welcome. The cottage is immaculate and gives the impression that there have been no previous visitors. The decorations, cleanliness etc first class.

As described it is small but well equipped; Katie and John have thought of everything. Don't think twice about booking Corrodale Cottage.

“So pleased we came back”

We discovered Corrodale Cottage in 2014 and almost immediately booked a return for 2015. Again Katie and John made us very welcome and we arrived on a colder than average June day to a blazing stove, chilled champagne and a fridge full of hebridean treats. We joined RSPB walks on both South and North Uist and visited the reserve at Balranald. Closer to the cottage we heard the Corncrake and watched a pair of Hooper swans on the nearby lochan. Corrodale is a charming and beautifully equipped base to explore the Uists.

Received a warm welcome from Katie and John and appreciated the special gifts received on our arrival. The spa bath and peat fire really made our stay memorable. We were lucky to have reasonable weather and could enjoy sitting outside to watch the wildlife-just sorry the corncrake kept avoiding us!! Great base for exploring the Uists and Eriskay.
A wonderful peaceful setting and certainly a place to get away from it all.

“Don't hesitate in booking Corrodale !”

This was our second time to Corrodale and , like our first visit, it was exceptional.
It has everything you could possibly want ...the cottage is immaculately clean,the bed is extremely comfortable,the bathroom's shower and bath are luxurious,the peat fire is easy to use and clean with plenty of peat and kindling to start it.

There is an outhouse that has an washing machine and sink and where the peat and kindling is kept.As walkers we kept our boots and walking gear in there out of the way which also kept Corrodale clean.It also housed my golf clubs as I played Askernish which you just have to play. It's wonderful but it destroyed me !!

Corrodale has it's own parking and clothes line.Washing and wet walking clothes dry quickly in the Uists.

Best of all are Katie and John. They are the friendliest and most helpful of couples and make sure everything is just perfect. We'll be back and thanks again.

“High quality in all aspects of the experience”

Our first trip to South Uist was to Corrodale Cottage which is perfectly located for access to all areas of the island and adjacent islands. A wonderfully warm reception on arrival and loads of advice about Uist. In addition an excellent stock of useful literature to help gain maximum benefit from the trip. Katie was particularly experienced in helping us arrange a visit to St Kilda. Personal contact with the owner of Kilda Cruises enabled us make the best use of the arrangements and we were even dropped off at Bernerey on the return from St Kilda to collect our car. An amazing experience to a location with double World Heritage status. Exceptional accommodation, wonderful location, hospitable locals and a open wilderness feel to the environment .
