“Cozy and friendly”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Amazing attention to detail by hosts in both decoration and provided equipment. From microwave to hair straightener, from washing machine to bathrobes and from hiking guides to board games - we were provided we everything we needed and what we didn't even thought we might need. The location is simply perfect: having breakfast with a family of swans on the loch right outside the windows was an everyday treat, there's a Coop market literally right next door (you won't hear any of the traffic though) and you're no more than a 30 minutes car ride from anything you'd like to visit on the island.
All of the above is only topped by the hospitality and friendliness of the hosts who went above and beyond anything we had experienced before.
We'd give it 6 points if we could.

“Beautiful peaceful welcoming home from home”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A wonderful cosy cottage with everything required and more. There is washing machine WiFi even hair straighteners. It's situated right next to co op very handy for self catering. There was a welcome basket with wine and scones. The owners were friendly and welcoming and even dropped past with wonderful home made cake and shortbread. It is a good base if you want to play golf or for walking. There are plenty of cafes hotels and pubs to choose from but you do need to drive.

“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a brilliant wee place, and welcoming hosts! We needed somewhere to stay for our early crossing to Mallaig the next morning. Only disappointing thing was that we weren't able to stay longer!
Such a good price and everything you could possibly need was there. Lovely welcome basket of scones and tea on arrival, and wonderfully fluffy bath robes were nice extra touches.
Would definitely recommend.

“The perfect base to explore the UIsts”

person found this review helpful

We had a fantastic week from the 4th June, we would echo all of the comments made in previous reviews. The Boat House exceeded our expectations with much attention paid to detail and comfort. This was the perfect base for us to explore the beautiful scenery of the Uists. Linda and Ally went out of their way to make us feel really welcome and we felt relaxed and at home right from the start.
