Great cottage for a family, not far to the most amazing beach and others a short walk/drive away, mainly disserted. No bath but no time for that anyway, quick shower and away!

This house is in the most fantastic location, just a miles walk to a stunning series of beaches. The Co-op was so handy and the Wee Cottage Kitchen in Malacleit was great. Berneray a short drive away. The interior was immaculate. Cathina gave us a lovely welcome and was so friendly and helpful, sharing local information with us and stories. The stoRead morerage shed was a bonus, meaning we could keep our bikes safe and dry. Within 30 minutes of arrival a sea eagle flew over the house, amazing wildlife! Hide

A great base for an active holiday. We were out all day, back to cook most evenings. The sounds of the bird-life in the reed beds opposite, and the chatter around the house were a wonderful back drop morning and night.

The cottage worked well for us but the welcome we received from Cathina, her family and the local community made for a very special holiday experience.

We really loved this cosy, prettily decorated cottage. It had lovely views, was comfortable and clean and was within walking distance of an extraordinary (and empty) beach. We had peat fires, a sunny afternoon in the garden and lovely family meals. Sollas is well placed to explore the full length of the Outer Hebrides and all its phenomenal beachesRead more. We definitely recommend this property. Hide
