Thank you for another lovely week in Corrodale Cottage our 4th visit.  The welcome, quality and high standards of your cottage are as excellent as the first time we came in 2011.  Lots of amazing wildlife but to have sea eagles and short eared owls just outside is unbelievable. We love the starlings and sparrows too and the view … is stunning

Such a comfortable and well thought out cottage.  Welcome hamper was truly exceptional and such a wonderful surprise after a long journey.  This holiday was planned in 2020, so great to finally get here after 2 years of covid.  The wait was worth it.  The scenery of Uist did not disappoint.  Very sad to leave.

A wonderful week – super cottage, magnificent scenery particularly on the east coast e.g Loch Eynort, 3 sightings of white tailed eagle, 3 sightings of short eared owls, basking seals, great northern divers on the coast and many other birds. Thank you Katie for such a warm welcome and hamper of Scottish goodies.

Thank you Katie for the wonderful welcome pack/flowers. The cottage has everything and made our stay perfect. The islands are breathtaking as was the weather. People were so friendly and wildlife second to none – we saw white tailed eagles, basking seals and walked on the most beautiful beaches – we really loved the books and pictures describing the trials and tribulations of local people over the years, staying in a blackhouse made the experience even more special.

At last! Our delayed Ruby wedding trip to the Outer Hebrides.  The first week has not disappointed.  Lovely cottage!  We have both read The Black House by Peter May, recommended.  Basket of goodies was much appreciated – many thanks Katie.  Weather has been mainly quite good – too windy to hear the corncrake but a few have been heard.  Also had a visit from a golden eagle outside the cottage – 1 of 69 species seen so far!  Off to Lewis today, how will it compare?

29 May 2021

We have had a great week at Corrodale Cottage.  The weather has been dry but cold.  One very sunny day too.  This is a wonderful cottage with everything we needed.  Cosy peat fire and jacuzzi bath with lights was a real treat.  Great attention to detail throughout.  A very warm welcome from Katie.  Hopefully we will return next year.  Wouldn’t stay anywhere else!  Thank you

A perfect bolt hole from which to explore this part of the Hebrides.  The white beaches, hills and landscape did not disappoint.  We really admired the craftsmanship which is evident in this restored and modernised Tigh Dubh and very much appreciated the attention to detail and generosity of spirit evident in all the wee touches.
