Description

Just a short stroll to the beach this cottage is perfect for a family beach holiday, yet within easy reach of Eriskay and Barra.. Kilbride Beach Cottage has the most stunning location, with the beaches and the colour of the sea something to behold. The southern isles have something for everyone. They are great for walks, rural or countryside. Beach or lochside fishing is perfect for relaxation. The rasping call of the elusive corncrake can be heard from the doorstep from April onwards, as well as the golden eagle corn bunting, short eared owls, hen herrier, seals and otters. You will be truly amazed with the wide variety of native rare wild flowers on the Machair, shimmering with every colour of the rainbow, from wild irises, bog cotton, wild orchids and so many different flora and fauna. Kilbride Beach Cottage is a short stroll to the beach, and the cottage dates back to 1909, and has been renovated and extended to offer the most comfortable and luxurious accommodation. The cottage is stylishly furnished and equipped to make the most of all the comforts and necessities you may require. The owners have been born and brought up in this Gaelic speaking community, and you’ll know doubt pick up at least a few phrases by the end of your visit.

The cottage is on a working croft which you are welcome to take interest in, you will find sheep, lambs, ducks, hens and chickens all close by.

The archipelago off the islands are all linked by causeways, so travelling between them all is so easy. Guests can take the ferry across to Barra for day trips, with boat trips out to St Kilda and the Monarch Isles. The area has so much heritage; Kildonan Centre is a heritage and cultural facility which includes a museum, craft shop, cafe and an archaeology room.

Guest Comments

"Fantastic house to stay in with superb views to Barra and Eriskay. Very welcoming helpful and friendly owners. Will book again."

Martin , September 2018

"A superb place to stay with outstanding hosts.The house is finished and equipped to a very high standard and the views from it over to Eriskay and Barra are beautiful.Christine was very welcoming and went out of here way to ensure we had a wonderful week. Her cake, scones and shortbread were delicious, and the lobster we ordered was accompanied by freshly dug potatoes from her garden (thanks to her son for doing the digging!).A truly memorable holiday in an exceptional location."

Iain, August 2018

"We loved Kilbride Beach Cottage. It is absoluty beautiful and extremely well equipped. We watched short eared owls and hen harriers from the kitchen and strolled down to the beach and cafe in 5/10 mins. What's more (and very importantly) the Campbell's are wonderful hosts - so kind and obliging. Christine is known for her baking throughout S Uist and Angus John came round to help us fix a problem with the car (and deliver fresh lobster). Our 6 year old had fun with the girls and we generally felt very welcome. They couldn't have been more obliging, whilst at the same time not being at all intrusive. There is a well stocked grocery store on Eriskay (10 mins away by car). We climbed Easaval (hill behind house- 200m takes about 2 hours ) and had a good golden eagle sighting. Lovely holiday and perfect cottage."

Bryony, August 2018

"We had a lovely week. The owner was very helpful and kind. We enjoyed fresh eggs from her ducks and chickens, and the house was very well equipped. There were stunning views from every window. The owner kindly brought over some of her children's toys for my 4 year old granddaughter to play with. South Uist is a stunning location and we had some great walks and saw lots of wild flowers and wild life, and also enjoyed local produce. Would definitely like to go back to South Uist and to this house."

Joan, June 2018

"the owners made our stay very comfortable and welcoming. They helped us a lot to rebook the ferry, due to storms. Will go to south uist again.Cottage is excellent."

Dawn, May 2018

"Very well set up cottage. Comfortable, with all modern appliances. Set in a beautiful part of the Hebrides, it was a pleasure to be there. And the weather behaved most of the time. I miss it now we’re back in the city."

Helen, May 2018

"Kilbride cottage was exquisitely tasteful in a stunning location."
