From the warm welcome to Bollinger in the spa bath this house with the spectacular views from every window is a couples dream come true. We truly enjoyed the wild Scottish weather from behind glass and in front of the peat fire. We saw porpoise in the bay beside the cottage and an eagle overhead near Tarbet. Excellent local food...

We had a 10 day Scottish adventure in September with 7 days on the Isle of Harris staying at the luxury 5 star Blue Reef cottage. First class accommodation! Although on first sight, expensive. However after making the journey to get there, the self catering cottage was the perfect place to just sit and relax watching the sky, sea and... More

Like all the other reviews here, we cannot say enough positive things about this place. It is simply beautiful and the perfect place for a honeymoon if you want wilderness, wild beauty but a touch of luxury too. Everything about the cottage and it's facilities is first class. Cosy, chic and with unforgettable views-we could not have asked for a... More

We spent a week here on our honeymoon in July and it was absolutely perfect! The cottage is luxurious and cosy with the most amazing views from the large front window. It is tempting to just sit in and watch the spectacular scenery and ever changing lights, alongside the most wonderful sunsets. The welcome pack with champagne is a lovely... More

The best self catering cottage we have ever stayed in and worth every penny! Our 4th visit to Harris- we had previously spotted the Blue Reef cottages and have been determined to try to get a booking (it's fully booked year round!) It was everything we hoped it would be and more. Beautifully warm and cosy yet spacious, tastefully decorated... More

We spent 3 nights here as part of a honeymoon tour of the Western Isles & Skye. Even more luxurious than expected, unusual architecture and a magical location overlooking a horseshoe sandy beach. Everything in the cottage is high specification and the champagne hamper was a memorable touch.

We stayed here May 2013 and had the most amazing week. Absolutly gorgeous accommodation in the most perfect setting. Beautiful sunsets most nights and although the weather wasn't the best all week it was so cosy inside. We toured the island and went up to Lewis, but our favourite trip was to the amazing Luskentyre beach, we could of been... More

After spending this New Year in the Coillabus Cottage on Islay (same architect) we gladly remember our stay in the BLUE REEF cottage 2 years ago ... it doesn't come much better in your lifetime! The views are incredible, the cottage is a dream, the hosts are hands-on efficient and helpful ... we'd recommend a stay without hesitation - 100... More

We stayed in August 2013 for one week. Harris is simply stunning and to stay at Blue Reef Cottages just made our trip even better. The location is idyllic and if you like golf there is a golf course right across the road . The cottage has everything you could think of and finishing the day with a sauna and... More

Just spent a wonderful 3 nights in one of the beautiful subterranean blue reef cottages. Absolutely unique buildings amazingly sensitively blended into the surrounding landscape. If you are looking for something a bit different where the owners have spent that extra effort to impress their guests, this is that place. The location is equally impressive, the views look straight out... More
