Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Romantic 5star cottage - wow!
Wow, what a perfect cottage! Beautifully decorated with high standard equipment and nice details. The bathroom with whirlpool is like in a five star hotel, even slippers and bathrobe are provided. We loved the cosy atmosphere in front of the peat fire. The welcome basket with Hebridean delicacies was amazing. The fresh flowers and the welcoming sparkling surprise exceeded our expectations. What a treat! Thank you so much Katie for this warm welcome! We also loved the area and especially the walks on the beaches you had recommened. We had a wonderful stay and many happy memories to take home. Highly recommended!!

Why aren't you already booked for here??
We were very happy to meet Katie when we 1st arrived at the cottage. We had a fantastic and very relaxing time in the Cottage. We brought a few things with us but Katie had beat us to everything.....from the flask and the hamper, stove ready to light and extra peat, to the extremely well decorated and equipped kitchen or the large selection of DVDs, books and maps. The spa bath and huge shower were to die for...sadly we don't have lights in our bath at home or a heated mirror!!! The other half has a list of home improvements for when he gets home. We didn't do as much walking etc as other guest but we had a hugely relaxing week.

Exceptional
Katie has thought of everything you need including a wonderfully generous Hebredian Hamper full of goodies on your arrival. The cottage is so lovely it is difficult to leave. The nearby beach is great , there are marvellous walks on the islands & the local wild life boat trip promises encounters with sea eagles seals and red deer & we were not disappointed. Everything about our stay at Corrodale Cottage was faultless it is worth every penny. Thank you again Katie for your thoughtfulness & generosity.

Beyond Expectations
South Uist is a fascinating island,ranging from miles of sandy beaches on the west side and rugged mountains on the east. It is also an ideal base from which to tour some of the other islands. As for Corrodale Cottage, it is a perfect retreat for a couple. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard and every little detail has been thought of. What makes it really special is all the little extras that have been provided, which makes it like staying in a five star hotel. Even the toiletries are extra special!!!! The welcome basket is also amazing, full of local specialties as well as basics needed on arrival. The champagne on ice and fresh flowers that awaited our arrival made the time there special from the moment we walked in the door! So sad to leave such a beautiful place. Thank you John and Katie ....you are wonderful hosts.

Perfect cottage for two.
Corrodale Cottage is an ideal place to stay for exploring the Uists. The scenery is sublime and the bird watching opportunities second to none. The cottage itself is first class with every detail measured in perfect comfort and relaxation. From the welcome and information provided by Katie and John to all the first class amenities , one could not ask for a better experience in self catering.

Perfect Hebridean getaway
Beautiful cottage in a stunning location looking across to the mountains with lovely quiet beaches only minutes away. Handy for the Co-Op in Benbecula only 10 minutes drive away. Lovely walks and quiet roads for cycling. A wonderful cottage where everything has been thought of - all to a very high standard. A week was not long enough!

Small but perfectly formed
Corrodale cottage is a converted Croft, so it is small, but for 2 people and a small dog, it is perfect. There is also an outhouse that has all the laundry requirements needed. However, it’s the attention to detail that makes Corrodale a winner. Not just the way the decor has been finished, or the fresh flowers in every room, or the amount of fluffy towels and a bathrobe each, but the basic essentials that are required when renting a place. For that romantic hideaway, it is perfect

Perfect
This is the most fantastic cottage to stay in, for me a dream come true to stay in a Black house. Everything about it is perfect, from the peat fire for tradition to the very modern bathroom. Katie's special touches make it even better and I was able to try scallops thanks to part of the welcome basket. Thanks Katie for making us so welcome.
