Snishival Self Catering South Uist Outer Hebrides Scotland Family friendly Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage for romantic breaks in Isle of South Uist, Western Isles, Scotland


Very comfortable and well equipped hilltop house, close to the west coast of South Uist, in an idyllic location with stunning 360 degree views of hills, lochs, machair and the Atlantic.

Snishival is unique.  Designed for up to six people, the paneled siting room  welcomes you and lets you view the whole length of the island in front of a glowing peat fire.  The downstairs twin bedroom has its own bathroom and upstairs are a double bedroom and a large twin bedded room, with a bathroom and a separate shower room to share.  You can watch the sun setting over the Atlantic as you eat dinner, and sometimes you can even see St. Kilda, 60 miles away.  It is a warm, cosy,  family house with a very special atmosphere.

 

This is a family house, with a warm laundry room for the dogs to sleep in, a kitchen, dining area and sitting room all in one so no one is left out and an enclosed lawned garden.  Two of the best sea trout lochs are at your feet;  both brown trout and sea trout fishing is available by arrangement.

 

South Uist has a wonderful birdlife, stunning scenery and glorious walks both uphill and along the varied coastlines. An 18 hole links golf course is only a few miles away. Stand on the 11th tee with the Atlantic rollers crashing 100 m away and drive your ball across to a pinnacle in the distance.  It is hard!

  Flora Macdonald's Birthplace is even nearer, next to the Kildonan Museum and to find Prince Charlie's Cave is a real challenge!

 

Take a trip down to the southern tip of the island to have a drink at the Pollachar Inn and learn the story of the ss politician which sank nearby in 1941 with 24,000 cases of whisky on board. If you walk along the beach there you will find evidence of a petrified forest in the sand.  Or cross over via a causeway to Eriskay to find a charming fishing harbour and famous Eriskay ponies living wild on the hillside.

 

For a choice of Hebridean fish and shellfish, drive north to Grimsay island, beyond Benbecula and find Kallin Harbour;  you will not be disappointed;  and the Orosay Inn at Carnan is well worth a visit.

 

South Uist is home to a myriad of birds;  greylag geese flourish on a Nature Reserve at Druidibeg;  golden eagles fly around the three hills of 2000 feet, buzzards, merlin, hen harriers and short-eared owls can be seen and a wide variety of duck  -  mallard, shovelers, teal, shelduck and widgeon for example. At the right time of year, you can see black and red throated divers and hear a corncrake in the grass.
