We've stayed with at Tetherstone a number of times, but there is one visit that sticks in our memory. In April 2012 we took the ferry from Skye to Harris, and cycled to Northton. Usually this takes 90 minutes, but we were delayed by a serious car accident that closed the A859 for over an hour. While we waited in... More

We stayed with Arabella and David for three nights and found it very hard and felt very sad to leave. And it wasn't just because they live in a very special and very beautiful place, or because we were lucky enough to enjoy 3 days of sunshine. It wasn't just because Tetherstone is so tastefully decorated and refined in every... More

Just want to endorse what everyone else has said. We stayed with Arabella and David for three days at the start of September. The room was very comfortable, and Arabella and David are perfect hosts - very attentive without at any point being too present! The breakfasts were excellent: I stuck to the traditional bacon and eggs (Arabella really knows... More

Arabella and David run a wonderful B&B with a wonderful level of home from home comfort in the small town of Northton, however their knowledge of Island life is comprehensive extending to all of the Islands in the Hebrides which is no mean feat. The food is lovely and what is particularly amazing in a location which has very few... More

We stayed with David and Arabella in June and found everything about Tetherstone quite perfect. The welcome was warm (and the welcome tea delicious); the walking notes were highly informative; the room was spotless, serene, airy and comfortable; and the breakfast was the best we had anywhere on our Western Isles trip. We endorse all the positive things said by... More

My first time on Harris, Arabella and David are perfect hosts, very warm and welcoming and easy to get on with. I stayed for 3 nights as a single traveller, the house is gorgeous and cosy, room spotless, located close to some outstanding beaches. David is a mine of local information, loads of maps are available and advice on trips... More

The nicest, friendliest, cleanest, best B&B of our whole 6 week trip to Scotland. The bed was by far the most comfortable & everything we might need was thought of. David & Arabella are kind, friendly, funny people who you would like to have as friends. The Northton location was even better than I had expected, centrally located in a... More

Arabella and David were wonderful hosts, extremely warm and welcoming. We stayed at the B&B just before our wedding. The B&B itself was very clean, warm and spacious. Our bathroom had a view overlooking the hill. I really enjoyed brushing my teeth and watching the birds at the same time. The food was delicious - the French Toast light and... More

As soon as my wife and I arrived, we were met by our friendly hosts Davis and Arabella. The room was fantastic, with home cooking plied upon us, it was a delight to share their home. Their knowledge of the area was better than expected with a wonderful beach a 5 minute walk from the B&B. The breakfasts were super,... More

We stayed at Tetherstone B&B for three nights at the end of a short first tour of the Highlands and Outer Islands. I've never been to such a warm, comfortable, hospitable B&B and it was definitely one of the highlights of a wonderful touring week. Arabella and David do make you feel very at home with a perfect combination of... More
