This is a super B&B. The setting is idyllic, decor comfortable and stylish, with good quality bedding and towels. Arabella and David are the perfect hosts - welcoming, friendly and fun! David has a wealth of knowledge about the local wildlife and Arabella's cooking is superb! Thanks for a memorable stay and we look forward to returning!

We stayed for 4 days and wish it had been for longer. A superb B&B with lovely hosts David and Arabella who welcomed us into their home. Arabella cooks delicious breakfasts, lots of choice, the french toast with fruit, yogurt and maple syrup is not to be missed. David is very knowledgeable on the area particularly on its varied birdlife... More

Harris has a good claim to be the most beautiful of all the islands in the Outer Hebrides. We had just a two day trip in May 2015 and we stayed the one night in Tetherstone B&B. Everything about our stay was excellent - the room was top quality and incredibly comfortable with our own private bathroom. David and Arabella... More

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
