This lovely cottage could not be faulted. It has been beautifully restored with comfortable lounge seating, cozy beds, a spacious bathroom and a well equipped kitchen.
Ian met us on arrival and showed us where to find things, how the heating worked etc. He was helpful and informative. Nothing was too much trouble.
I especially loved the little decorative chickens scattered around the cottage. Chooks (as we call them in Australia) of all different breeds, sizes and colours. We even met the 'real' ones and Ian was kind enough to give us some fresh eggs, as well as some very succulent lamb chops from their locally raised flock.
Loads of information brochures and books on the local area, things to do, what to see.
Nearby, the loch provides sheltered waters for a dip (although it was way too cold for me) while on the other side of the 'spit', the beach is great for beachcombing.
Ian and His wife Dede where very friendly and helpful, there kitty Clyde was very sweet as well .. the house was very clean and very well stocked with everything you would need to cook. The views to the ocean where amazing The surrounding area was very pretty. Attractions where close by like the black houses, standing stones, beaches.
We had a wonderful stay and where even given permission to get the fresh eggs from the chicken coop.
We would highly recommend Ian and Dede place to all our friends. We hope to return someday.
Thank you kindly ,

Spent 4 nights in this well equipped 2 bedroom cottage within walking distance to a beautiful beach and a short drive away from many more.
Thoroughly relaxing and comfortable stay. Would highly recommend.
Taigh a' Chaillich is gaelic for chicken so look out for the many chick dotted around. We quickly settled into this lovely little cottage. There was enough space to set up our dog cage in the sitting/ kitchen area which was good. John was lovely and friendly directing us to the beautiful beach which was a favourite morning walk. It is possible to explore from this location and would recommend a visit to the Black houses, and the little gem which is the Norse mill and kiln. Do visit the Harris Tweed weavers who work in their cottages and the many galleries. We had a fabulous time and didn't want to leave the peace, quiet and beauty of the area. Uig is well worth a trip out to with the lovely Community centre, the gorgeous beaches and the whisky distillery. Oh and did I mention the wild life? Do expect it to be windy though, but that isn't a problem.
