“Superb holiday home, came home with a tan!”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our stay in Tranquil Sands was planned as a restful week in a lovely home, walking with our dog by day and relaxing with good food and the occasional bottle of wine on an evening. We expected true Hebrides weather (4 seasons in one day). We were so lucky, the sun shone every day with temperatures in the 20s.
We explored North and South Uist and Benbecula, enjoyed seeing loads of different birds, even the elusive corncrakes, spent an hour having a picnic and watching a seal in the bay. We sadly didn't see any otters but that gives us a reason to come back again.
The house was lovely, light and spacious and with every conceivable amenity. We highly recommend it to anyone wanting a luxurious base close to a beautiful beach.
Thanks Mark and May!

“Beautiful immaculate oh so comfortable house.”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a week in this house. Although the pictures show how stunningly beautiful this house is you still are blown away when you walk in. Everything is just so perfect. Immaculately clean. The ensuite shower is brilliant! The house is in one of the best locations on the island. We have self catered for about 30 years and I can honestly say this is the best house we've stayed in. Also very helpful owners. We can't wait to go back!

“A genuinely 5* holiday cottage”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from a week's holiday in this beautiful cottage with our dogs and we have all had a fantastic time. The beach is just a few minutes walk across a field, then you can walk for miles in either direction - dog's paradise! The house has everything you could wish for and is spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. We have visited N Uist several times but this is by far the best holiday cottage that is genuinely dog friendly and so well placed for all the best walks on the island. To make it even better, if that is possible, an extension is planned for this winter with large windows to make even more of the views. Our next visit is already booked!

Liked best: The position and excellent amenities. Genuinely dog friendly.
Liked least: The 4ft 6ins bed but we are both tall people. A king size duvet would have helped.

“Never mind the weather”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We (my wife and I and a friend from Switzerland) have stayed many times in the Western Isles and often on North Uist.
This was our first stay in 'Tranquil Sands'.
The house is completely weather proof, warm and comfy.
The weather was wet, windy, sunny and cold - rainbows, amazing clouds. Often all in one day.
The house was great to come back to after days out.
Comfy, spacious, well equipped and easy to use.
Really good walk down to the local beach and across to Balranald or round to the next bay.
Corncrakes and Redshanks in the garden every day were a real treat.
Recommended.
