“A lovely introduction to the Outer Hebrides. Very cosy cottage. Delightful to watch the short eared owl hunting over the fields every day. Saw otters at Loch Langass and seals at Flodaigh. Tried Gaelic singing at Berneray and had great fun at the sandcastle competition in a force 7 gale! Also enjoyed some quieter sunny days at Clachan Sands with our body boards and barbeque. We’ll be back!”
