Great holiday in Uist Tranquil Sands is a wonderful place to stay. We hope to return sometime soon.
Fabulous cottage, brilliant and beautiful place, will be back here. Great for cycling, bird watching and nature. Great golf course as well (Challenging!)
Only a week available at our favourite holiday home but we’ve managed a good week weather wise. The tide was right for us to take a walk to Valley – what a great beach on the Atlantic side! We were lucky enough to have booked the only trip to St Kilda this week, an amazing, […]
We had a very relaxing and peaceful 2 weeks holiday. The extension is fab and adds to the lovely home. Our weather has been mixed but we have enjoyed getting out and about. Hugo has had a great time chasing rabbits and running on the beach. A great holiday home and im sure we will […]
We enjoyed our few days in your beautifully designed and equiped house. Loved bird life- saw hen harrier, lapwing, short eared owl, pied wagtail, linnet, dunnock and meadow pipit. weather sat and sun very windy.
Great Holiday – fantastic views and wildlife. When the sun is out its stunning. Lovely relaxing holiday home. Thank you
Sweet holiday with fantatstic weather most of the time – new extension fabulous! Looking forward to our 4th visit next August. Many thanks again.
Our second visit to this house – extension fantastic – watched Corn Crake from window. Great walks a dog walkers paradise, felt like home. Weather been kind to us, saw such a variety of birds. Thanks again
Perfect week! Sun shone every day and the house is just fantastic! Highlights, watching SE Owls, Hen Harriers chasing Cuckoos, WT Sea Eagle and Artic Skua, Black Billed Cuckoo!! Thousands of waders on seaweed at high tide. Corncrakes, Red – Necked Phalaropes on Loch Mhor. Thank you so much for providing such a perfect home […]
Such a beautiful home in a glorious location. Really thrilled that we saw the elusive Corncrake (twice), just across the field from the house, seems to like long grass on the fence lines. Also saw amongst many other birds, numerous sightings of the Short Eared Owl. Unfortunately though no Otters or Eagles, perhaps next year […]
Fabulous week -amazing hot sunny days. White sands turquoise beaches, loved the house. Izzy tried to rid the sand dunes of rabbits but failed miserably, tired dog every night!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week. The house is really beautiful and immaculate. Our whippets had a great time-Lexi managed to jump over the cattle grid so dog owners beware! The location is fantastic as you can see the sea from the window. The weather was wild so didn’t get to the places we’d planned to […]
Enjoyed a wonderful week with Mike and Sue in your extremely welcoming bungalow. It was refreshing and relaxing in spite of snow, hail rain etc, we still went out. When the weather was bad we were entertained by sheep.
After more than 35 years visiting the Outer Hebrides we have had many lovely holidays and gone home with happy memories. This year has been no exception dispite the snow, hailstones and wind!! What a well appointed and comfortable cottage. Thank you! 2017 is already booked!
A beautiful immaculate home, so bright with sheep and lambs to entertain. Just a really relaxing and peaceful break. God bless xx
Highlights of the holiday- the weather -sunshine -everyday! Otter ambling along the beach at Traigh Bhalaigh and seals jumping out of the water at Burgh on Berneray. The white sands are amazing dog heaven – able to roam free for miles. Thank you for sharing your wonderful house.
Great time in North Uist. Just love the house. Watched white tailed eagles, otters and countless waders. Weather was wild but plenty of sunshine.
Best holiday house in North Uist! We have had a supurb holiday here and the dogs have loved all the walks from the house + all over the 3 islands. We will be back and thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Had another marvellous holiday here in this lovely house – so lucky with the weather too. Great walks from the house – a dog walkers paradise – and many other days out. Looking forward to next year here and hope all the building goes well. Thanks again
Beautiful, cozy base for exploring. Born at no8 so the views over the mach air was my playground as a child. Go to the next bay North of Hosta Beach for wild surf
We really enjoyed our week at this wonderful holiday home, and couldn’t ask for more. The sofa is far too comfortable! Loved the beaches, wildlife and local café at Claddich Kirkboist. Enjoyed the walk around Balranald Nature Reserve and the corncrake on the Wednesday night (although the warden said he had only ever seen one once so we could have sat and listened to one outside Tilleadh Dhachaidh!)
Lovely relaxing 2 weeks. Corncrakes in garden neally everyday. Redshank chicks in garden otter sitting eating fish on rocks at Baille Sear, wonderfull site. Go out a night plenty deer to be seen on committee road. Thank you Mark and May
This was the 3rd and sadley the last of our planned breaks to this wonderful location. The location and the house were as beautiful as the the first time we saw then back in 2013.
Thank you May and Mark for the use of your home
Ps we are looking forward to a return trip in a couple of years time!!
Weve enjoyed our 2 weeks here and the rain and wind haven’t stopped us going out every day. Loved having 2 corncrake in the garden plus a redshank who visited daily. Wonderful to have beautiful beaches on oour doorstep.Great place to stay, very comfortable and well placed.
Thank you for a wonderful week! A perfect place to stay watch out for the corncrakes! on the lawn we have seen them every day
Our second visit to this beautiful house. Been coming for years for the skua migration and at last Gareth has seen hundreds of skuas - long tailed and short – out over Balranald headland – Hooray! Went to Langass Lodge saw 8 deer swimming in Loch. Also saw 3 otters at Balranald and a Golden Eagle at the watch tower past Hosta.
Lovely time thank you Mark and May a super cosy home for when it was howling and raining.
We have had a fantastic week too many favourite things. Walking from here to Balranald. The St Kilda View Point, Langass Hill, ancient things and wood with Hercules, all the lovely Beaches. The Lapwing, Golden Plover and all the Coastal Birds. The wee Lambs are very entertaining. The Corncrake and Snipe we heard after dark.
We have had a great holiday on this beautiful island. The weather has been great and we enjoyed exploring the island. The beaches are spectacular and Hugo has had a ball! Coming back to this beautiful house and so well equipped at the end of the day is fantastic. We have had an extra bonus of a field full of lambs and the intrigue they bring. Hope we didn’t trouble farmer Neil too much with our lamb emergences.
We look forward to returning next summer! Christine Mark and Hugo
Thoughly enjoyable week whilst touring the islands. Thank you for an excellently presented “cottage” Slante!
Beautiful place, lovely views! Very enjoyable week! Thank you
Lovely break Thank you
What a beautiful place, lovely sunsets, dramatic winds and breath taking beaches. Dog walkers heaven, Lochmaddy was a delight for Kayaking (we bought our own) Beautiful landscape and wildlife. The house is very well equipped, spacious with great views. All in all it’s wonderful and we will be back in the near future. Thank you
What can we say? We fell in love with this beautiful place! One of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had with the added comfort of this gorgeous house which is equipped to a very high standard. We have made fond memories here and will be back.
Thank you both for a great house. The weather was kind for us and we went all over the island walking with corrie our dog. This is so hard to beat for location. Thanks again May and Mark xxx
An absolutely amazing cottage in a stunning location. The cottage is well equipped for everything just great. Thank you
Had a great time. Clean and comfortable, could have stayed longer. This is our second visit to North Uist, quite a lot of changes in 4 years. For your info Supermarket in Benbecula open Sundays 11-4pm just past airport, a truly excellent place as it was small the last time we came! Airport also opens Sunday 11-1pm for snacks, toilets etc
Another magical 2 weeks in North Uist. The weather has been amazing!!!! Only 1 day of drizzle. Seen everything we didn’t see last year, Otter, 2 kits and followed a Golden Eagle from Balranald to Paible. Tranquil Sands an amazing home with everything and more!!! Thank you May and Mark for sharing your home with us again. See you in 2016 and good luck with the planned extension.
We loved Tranquil Sands – it has everything one could want and so comfortable we did lots of walking and sight seeing and looking forward to returning for 2 weeks next year.
In your house we had wonderful holidays! Our 2 weeks here were very special! The weather was typical Scottish mix – sunny mostly –cloudy also rainy, but we loved. We hope to come again Best wishes and many thanks to you!
We were very sad to be leaving ‘tranquil Sands’ We love the bungalow it felt like home when we got back every evening after exploring North Uist and Benbecula. The family of Pied Wagtails on the lawn kept us amused and we had Lapwings feeding just outside the windows early morning and after dark. The bird life is here is fabulous – Short Eared Owls hunting and all the wadding birds along the shoreline. We loved the beaches, the Machair and Berneray in particular. Suggestion- A wild flower book would be great item we could identify more of the wild flowers on the Machair. Thanks for giving us such a lovely base from which we could explore the area.
Fantastic fishing at Galtersay and Strumore and walks at Eriskay and Valley especially. This accommodation is truly sensational! Well done and we will be back very soon.
What a fabulous bungalow, so well equipped, so comfortable. We’ve had 2 weeks on Harris and one-week here- wish we had done it the other way round. Bit of wind and rain towards the end of the week but the sun has come out for our last day. Corncrake didn’t show himself but he’s been about all week. Only sad event was a little white dog came into the garden and managed to get one of the oystercatcher’s chicks, parents so distressed so was I. This is a very special place and we are very lucky to have spent some time here and we would love to come back. Thank You
Our first visit to the Uists and a great base for our holiday – its all been said really- this is a beautiful home in immaculate condition with A* equipment throughout even down to the utility/garage! We had planned to cover the whole of the Uists from Berneray to Barra (fools!) but there’s so much beautiful wildness we spent a day on fabulous Berneray and one on Benbecular and Grimsay and the rest of North Uist We’ll be back! Having been serenaded (?) by corncrakes one then spent hours in the garden as a schoolroom for chicks –please if you have dogs don’t let them loose they will cause havoc amongst the ground nesting birds. Many thanks we’ll have many memories of our week in this special place.
ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Everything we needed for a wonderful holiday. It is so easy to live here. The Claddoch Kirkboist centre serves good light lunches and excellent cake. There is so much to do and see around North Uist we shall return for longer next time so that we can relax properly and enjoy Tranquil Sands fully. 2x disposable BBQs fit on the gas trolley perfect and save a bit of cleaning. O/S patio makes a great kitchen extension. England 1 Uruguay 2, never mind the BBQ was great. THANK YOU X 4
