"Total gem of a place! Thoroughly enjoyed our trip and could not fault ANYTHING"

Couple, September 2018

"Absolutely stunning location. The local area is totally unspoilt and beautiful. Beach Bay Cottage is a beautiful property with everything you could wish!"

Chris, August 2018

"Beach Bay is a fabulous place in a fabulous location. Peace and tranquility. Having only one local shop (which was very good) makes the score on the local amenities lower but, to be honest, it didn't matter. You stay there for the place and location not to shop!! A very nice looking local restaurant is opening in November 2018 which is only a mile away (but, again, BB is such a fantastic location for eating so we did not miss the restaurant)"

"If you want a completely different 'cottage' experience go no further than Beach Bay Cottage. Communication with the owners was friendly and they were extremely helpful with information from the start. Walking into the cottage, well, you just had to stop and stare out of the panoramic windows at the most amazing sandy beach scenery. The cottage was immaculate and all accessories you could want including a coffee pod machine (although there were some pods to start with we would advise taking your own supply as the local Uig community shop did not stock them and its a 45 minute journey to Stornoway if you need them). For provisions for your holiday Tesco deliver to the door so we would advise ordering a week in advance before your trip. The bedrooms/bathrooms were just stunning and beds so comfy. Powerful binoculars were also supplied and we were fortunate enough to spy sea and golden eagles in the bay. We could not possibly fault anything at the cottage, the location was just breath taking. The beach is amazing and the softest sand we have ever walked on. The beach is extremely safe for children and the river that runs into the sea had lots of small fish in it for the kids to catch in their nets. There are areas next to the cottage on the sand which have clams and cockles (just look for the blowholes at low tide) and armed with a rake you can have yourself a potful of them in 15 minutes for clam chowder. The local amenities are local community coffee shops and it's a pleasure to watch locals get together there and speak their native tongue. The locals are very friendly and we helped a crofter gather his cows and move them to a new grazing area on one of our walks. where else could you do that? There are no local resturants close by but there is one being built so should be good for 2019 and we would recommend SEATREK for a variety of outdoor pursuits which is only a 10 minute drive away from the cottage. If you like fishing then you have virtually unlimited lochs to fish for free with the guidance of the local ghillie who was kind enough to visit us and point to where to fish. There is beautiful scenery all around and numerous hills to climb but sadly we ran out of time. If you want total peace and quiet and a get away from it all holiday, then look no further. I would class the holiday as self catering because of the distance you would have to travel to eat out and the local Uig community shop is horrendously expensive with very little selection available to you so ensure you have a meal menu for the week and buy provisions at Tesco in Stornoway or get them delivered. If we're fortunate with availability then we'll be back 2020 for another amazing week. I understand the cottage was a monumental effort to build with the regulations and professional services to deal with so our grateful thanks to George and Lynda for making the effort and enriching our lives with an experience we will never forget. Thank you for letting us spend time in your cottage."

"We expected a great stay in the house, it turned out to be even better than hoped for."

Gerd, June 2018

"Our first visit to the Outer Hebredies was a huge success. We loved the area, the history, the mountains and the wildlife.Beach Bay Cottage was everything that we had hoped for and the care from the owners and their agents was exceptional.A stunningly beautiful place."

Michael, June 2018

"Fabulous cottage and location. Very few local amenities, but close enough to a shop and cafes, and with the opening of the new restaurant in 2018 what more do you need?Loved our holiday, so peaceful, and the view is just perfect. Stay and you won’t want to go home......"

Julie, June 2018

"Out of this world"
