Mud Room

When you open the front door at Tigh Alasdair you will come into the cottage by the Mud Room. If you've been out for walk, down at the beach or out on the hills, the Mud Room is the ideal place to hang up your coats, kick off your muddy boots with lots of space to get everything dry. Our doggie guests can come in from outside get toweled clean and dry, ready for dinner and good sleep in front of the fireplace.

Main Bedroom

Immerse yourself in comfort and panoramic Locheport vistas from our serene main bedroom. Sink into the tranquility of a lavish double bed, enveloped by nature's charm. Enhancing your stay, exquisite tables flank the bed, crowned with gentle bedside lamps emitting a calming radiance. Embrace the seasons with our adaptable dual-season quilt and a range of pillows, providing tailored relaxation. Extra blankets offer cocoon-like warmth, catering to your desires.

Living Room

One of the highlights of the living room is the open peat fire to be enjoyed from the comfort of the two small sofas. (Peat, kindlers, fire-lighters, and paper are all provided.) The room is equipped with a small colour TV with built in DVD player, and a separate Video player.  There are side tables and reading lamp. An overnight storage heater is located behind the door. The folding dining table, by the window, has space for up to six people and is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing meal, looking out over the fabulous views south, of Loch an Goil, Bureaval and Eaval.  Sunrises to delight the early risers and the ideal place to see the most gorgeous sunsets.  Sit for a while and you're almost certain to see deer, geese, or even an otter, and of course, the sheep on the crofts around. Should there be a little rain, or maybe you fancy another distraction then there are books and board games.  If you are wondering what you can do in around the islands we have leaflets with details on the local attractions, shops, places to eat.  Looking to plan a trip or see where something is? Then we have maps that cover the the Uists.................

Tigh Alasdair has inspired people in many different ways over the years, below a poem written by one of our guests.

The little house.  by Tom Riley

Perched on a grassy plot between two Lochs,
The little house scorns Eaval's stony stare.
But nesting where the watchful Lapwing flocks,
It smiles upon the ridge where red deer fare.
While oft the salty seal from Euphort peers
And otter scouts the shore of Loch a Ghoil;
Within its pale, the white sheep have no fears:
We transient tenants rest from care and toil.
On nights, when shrieking gale blows 'cross the lawn,
There sounds the noise of skeletal carouse,
Where ghosts of yore hold ceilidh till the dawn;
Just down the road in crumbling old black house.
But night and day, the little house so fair,
Gives comfort, and its name? - 'Tigh Alasdair'.
