“Wonderful location for North Uist holiday”
Reviewed 25 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Just spent two wonderful weeks at Rowan Cottage, which is in the most spectacular location on North Uist. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and has wonderful views from every window. Even the shower has the best of views! We saw a huge range of wildlife and bird life from the house. Thanks, Chris for a great stay!

“Wonderful week in gorgeous North Uist”
Reviewed 23 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Just spent a wonderful week at Rowan Cottage in Lochmaddy. A beautiful location with amazing view and a plethora of wildlife on your doorstep. The telescope and binoculars in every room were a great touch so we didn't miss any wildlife action and they kept our teenagers busy searching for seals and otters!
The cottage is lovely - luxurious with everything you could need and very clean and comfortable. Lovely beds and cosy duvets.
Close by are the most amazing beaches and walks, all worth investigating. Our dog was in heaven running around on the empty sand dunes!
We will definitely be back.

We had a lovely week at this excellent cottage. The weather was mixed but we had a couple of perfect sunny and warm days.

“Fabulous Cottage”
Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A wonderful stay at Rowan Cottage 15-22 Jul 17, all exactly as described, in fact would go as far as to say the website photos don't do it justice! The only thing that I knew would be missing (as am used to one at home) was a dishwasher..........with a kitchen sink view like that I quickly realised it wasn't an issue at all! We were very lucky with the weather and in particular enjoyed a fantastic boat trip on the Lady Anne with Nick and a day trip to Harris, both in fabulous sunshine. We also enjoyed many trips to deserted beaches and my son enjoyed his introduction to fly fishing. A great place.

“A beautiful place to escape to!”
Reviewed 26 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I have just returned from my first visit to this beautiful Island and Rowan Cottage, I couldn't have wished for more.
This is a truly wonderful cottage in an idyllic setting, overlooking the loch and the Islands. The cottage is cosy, immaculate and tastefully decorated to compliment the surroundings. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay, as is the rest of the cottage. The bedrooms are all beautifully decorated, very cosy and all overlooking the loch. It was a delight to wake up to the amazing sunrise each morning and to watch the seals, wild geese and herons on the loch.
There are so many beautiful places to visit all within easy reach from the cottage. A few of my highlights were; Clachan Sands, Berneray, where both beaches are stunning and very different and it was here I spotted an Otter, a walk on the Udal Penisuala is also a must.
This is a truly magical and perfect place to visit and I hope to return one day.
Thank you.

“Excellent quality in great location”
Reviewed 1 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This was my second visit to the Uists but this time based in the North rather than the South. Rowan Cottage proved to be a superb base to explore.I was here for photography, along with friend Don, and we had decided to concentrate on the north island and not travel too far. The cottage is just three miles from Lochmaddy, situated in a superb position overlooking the Loch and over to Skye in thedistance. In November the sun rises right out front and we were lucky enough to get a few mornings with lovely colours in the sky as the sun came up. The cottage is excellently equiped throughout. Well appointed, superbly fitted and decorated. Just the one family bathroom but with large walk-in shower and free standing bath. The kitchen is seriously equiped, only a dishwasher missing, but that's what Marigolds are for. Comfortable lounge with large TV and a telescope to spot the wildlife down on the Loch.
All in all I would highly recommend Rowan Cottage if you're visiting North Uist.
