Already people are starting to look into making bookings for 2016 holidays and if you are looking for a great cottage on a croft in the Hebrides then take a look at the Dollag's Cottage web site:
Dollag's Cottage at 7 South Shawbost
The cottage sleeps 6 with a double and two twin bedrooms and it makes the ideal location for either a sporting or a family holiday, or indeed a mixture of the two. As it is located on a working croft pets are not allowed. The cottage is newly renovated and is warm, comfortable and well appointed plus electricity and oil for the central heating are all included in the price so you will not be feeding a meter.
The area is probably most famous for salmon and sea trout fishing but there is also remarkable "wild" fishing for brown trout in hundreds of lochs and for some this is a much bigger attraction than the salmon. There is also excellent stalking for red deer available on the island plus a lot of shotgun sport with the woodcock probably the most well known.
Photos of the area probably "sell" it much better than anything I could write so here are a few:
