“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.

“what a beautiful cottage and the island is brilliant”
Reviewed 11 November 2016 for a stay in January 2015

we arrived after a 500 mile journey to instant comfort we set the wood burner then settled down for night, the next day was filled by exploring the island and finding out a lot of history about the islands.the beaches are out of this world even in the middle of jan, summertime can not see you fighting for a space.
the pub at lochmaddy was really good for evening meals, the cottage has everything you could ever want and many more a true gem i'm sure we will be back very soon thank you Chris for a brilliant week

“Wildlife heaven”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

House is in superb setting overlooking tidal sea loch with islands with common seals, red deer, a short eared owl hunting every evening just outside, otter spotted within a few yards, and cuckoos chasing each other over the house. North Uist is brilliant for mountain and beach walks and very interesting machair. Bird life fantastic. Spotted both sea eagles and golden eagles close and on several occasions. Warm comfortable house which was fully equipped.
