It’s a bit of a wildlife fest on today’s post, as we journeyed up from Lochboisdale to Langass (our bases on South and North Uist respectively).
We spent two nights at Heron Point and one night at Langass Lodge. Each were great, in different ways. Heron Point was a first class B&B, with probably the best customer service I have ever encountered at a B&B, delicious breakfasts and very comfortable surroundings (plus 3 very playful dogs which the owners indulged me with time to spend playing with them). Ways in which they go the extra mile include helping plan your day’s itinerary, loading you up with cake for your day’s excursion, and welcoming you back after your evening meal with a complimentary glass of wine . I forgot to take pictures but this place comes very highly recommended by Mr B and I. In South Uist, we ate at the Polochar Inn (recommended by the B&B) and we enjoyed our meals there on both nights.
However the best meal we had throughout our entire holiday was at Langass Lodge. We only just managed to get a night’s stay here due to it being the first week of the school holidays in Scotland. I managed to take a photo of the crab claws I had as a starter, but Andrew had a fabulous seafood platter starter and the rest of our meal was excellent (sorry, I forgot to take photos I was enjoying it too much!). It was possibly the most pricey of our meals during our holiday but it was good value for money all the same.
Back to the main point of this post, the wildlife! We found some majestic Highland cows and Eriskay ponies on our travels. I particularly love the picture of the brown Highland calf and also this photo below, you can almost sense the fur blowing gently in the wind!
We also did a walk around the Balranald Nature Reserve on North Uist, and spied a couple of picturesque scenes as we drove around the island.
