“Rowan Cottage is beautiful and Luxurious indeed !!!”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Rowan Cottage is THE most clean and comfortable, luxurious rental we have ever had. Spotless, but welcoming, with such beautifully tasteful furnishings. The kitchen has modern, leading- brand appliances. Dining is a pleasure. I really enjoyed the lovely slipper bath, whilst my partner preferred the spacious shower ! Couldn't stop moving from room to room at first, as the views from the windows are incredible, especially when the light and tides change over the Loch, producing breath-taking colours. We had no trouble sleeping in such a lovely, big bed and the late night stars are so clear and seem really close, Orion was framed in the bedroom window !.
It's location is handy for shopping (and you can get most things you need). Residents are friendly and courteous and we had such adventures, exploring the islands. The beaches have lovely white sand, some with fairly large dunes and are as pristine as any in the world. We loved wild life and bird-watching and when you read the Visitors' Book at Rowan Cottage - you can see just how much there is to see - we need to go back again.

“The most amazing place ever”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Rowan the last week in July and it was the most magial holiday ever. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you could evervneed. It was a brilliant location to explore the Island. We spent lots of time exploring the most amazing beaches, we have travelled the world and the beaches on North Uist are some of the best. Our two young children aged 5 and 2 loved the freedom of the beaches, we took the body boarding, kite flying and shell collecting. The garden at Rowan cottage was brilliant ..we could sit back and enjoy the view while the children played happily. The wildlife on the Island is also amazing.

“Rowan Cottage - nothing short of idyllic!”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

As soon as you walk into Rowan Cottage you say 'Wow!' and you know that your stay is going to be special. So comfortable and beautifully furnished in a fresh contemporary style, it has everything - and more! - that you need for a stay on this lovely island. I was there at the beginning of July, and with mixed weather, it was a pleasure just to stay in, relaxing and reading or peering through the telescope to what must be one of the best views imaginable, and spotting various wildlife out on the rocky islets in the loch. The cottage is ideally situated for shopping for provisions and some of the fabulous beaches are just a five minute drive away. If you love the peace and quiet of unspoilt nature, stunning scenery and shorelines with a wonderful home as your base, Rowan Cottage is nothing short of idyllic.

“Must be the best located cottage on the island!”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at Rowan Cottage May 9th to 16th 2015 our stay was amazing. It was perfect with far reaching views from all the windows. The cottage was furnished to a high standard, it was clean and had everything you could want. We would recommend anyone to stay at this cottage as it must be one of the best locations on the island.
