Worth the rather long travel time.
If driving from the south, stay overnight half way, just south of Glasgow at Shawlands Park Hotel, Larkhall.
Great walks, wildlife etc.
Hire the fast rib based in Uig to see eagles, whales, seals etc.
Typical Scottish Cottage
Left on 08/19/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | JLoppen
We liked the cottage being a typical scottish one and in line with the surrounding landscape. The comfort is not so high. The cottage certainly is an old one but very individual.
