Description

Bute Cottage is a well-appointed, detached, single-storey cottage overlooking its own lochan in Daliburgh, South Uist, in the Outer Hebrides. The cottage is well-equipped to make for an enjoyable stay and makes a great base to see all that the islands have to offer. A short drive takes you to Eriskay, where you can catch the ferry to Barra. Askernish Golf Course, designed by Tom Morris, is the oldest golf course in the Western Isles. The Uists islands have so much to offer for outdoor enthusiasts, artists and photographers, as well as bird watchers, walkers and people with an interest in archaeology. The birdlife and wildlife are wonderful, with eagles, corncrakes and the RSPB Balranald nature reserve. Whales and basking sharks all visit in the summer, and the machair is a mass of colour with all the different wild flowers, perfect for walking and discovering the pristine white sandy beaches on the west side.
There are many historic and archaeological sites to explore, including The Bonnie Prince Charlie Trail, Trinity Temple at Carnish and the Kildonan Museum. The Uist Outdoor Centre in Lochmaddy offers a wide range of activities including sea kayaking, diving, boat trips, whale watching and so much more. Take a boat trip out to the Monarch Isles and the remote island of St Kilda. The sunrise and sunsets, seascape, landscape and dark skies will amaze you. Getting to the Outer Hebrides is not as expensive as you may think. Road equivalent tariff applies for ferry fares which give really good value for travel costs. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

About the local area

Skye is one of the largest and best known Scottish islands and is particularly famous for its spectacular mountain scenery. It is also home to some dramatic history, diverse wildlife and rugged mountain beauty. The island of Skye makes for a great holiday destination with many visitor attractions, endless walking routes and fabulous restaurants.

Due to its popularity with tourists, you will find many craft shops and cottage museums. As for sports, you can visit the swimming pool in Portree, play golf at Sconser and Skeabost or go pony trekking. Watersports available on the island include diving, canoeing, windsurfing and yachting. Skye is also the ideal place for fishing and birdwatching.

Skye is easily accessible by either road or ferry. The road bridge is accessible from the Kyle of Lochalsh on mainland Scotland making it ideal for a day trip as well as a longer stay.

Lochalsh is truly highland territory full of clans and castles, hills of heather and views of lochs to the sea beyond. Visit the village of Plockton, a picture perfect location or Scotland's highest waterfall, The Five Sisters of Kintail. Where ever you go you are sure to be surrounded by some truly awesome scenery.

The Western Isles is a chain of islands also known as the Outer Hebrides. The main destination is the Isle of Lewis, a fairly flat island with many spectacular sandy beaches, a rugged coastline and a landscape that is worth investigating. Visitors will enjoy lots of activities including fishing, cycling, walking and bird watching. There are many other standing stones and archaeological monuments to visit too.

The rest of the western Isles can be explored using Lewis as a base. Most of the surrounding islands are covered in a blanket of peat meaning they are teaming with wildlife. Spot birds such as Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Kestrels, Hen Harriers and Redshank. With any luck you may even see otters, seals, eagles or dolphins off shore. In the summer months there are many colourful wild flowers to be seen and if you visit later in the season you can enjoy the heather in full bloom.
