Me and my fiancé wanted to find and stay in a place that was out the way, and when I came across the Gearrannan Blackhouse Village on the VisitScotland website it was perfect. On arrival it was even more isolated, again, this was what we were looking for. We stayed in the smallest blackhouse for two. It was cosy and... More

Disappointed, wasn't what I expected, I didn't realise it was mainly holiday accommodation. The tourist bit was poor. One member of staff was annoyed we had disturbed him from his reading his paper. Another member of staff had shut the video room early, but did reluctantly reopen it for us. However we did see a basking shark it the bay... More

We stayed here at round about the same time last year for a night. We were able to book it for two nights to year which was much better. The little village is fab, sits right by the sea with wonderful views and great walks by the coast. Both times we stayed in the smallest house, sleeping 2 people. It's... More

A little gem, warm and cosy, I stayed in the blackhouse for 1 or 2 people. Lovely spot with coastal walks from the door. The small kitchenette was sufficiently equipped, loads of hot water and an efficient shower. I had booked for 3 nights and really wished it had been longer. A good base for exploring that side of the... More

The small blackhouse village at the end of the world reminded us of Asterix and Obelix. The little house was very cosy and warm and the kitchen very well furnished, whatever you want to make muffins or mashed potatoes you have got the tools to do it. Right outside the house, near the beach starts a great trail along the... More

The welcome was at the cafe on the village site. The staff were quite new, with the manager as the experienced person, and consequently quite busy. Nevertheless they were very friendly. The property we stayed in was quite a mixture of past and present, convenient and very cosy, but not exceptionally homogeneous to the eye and some of the thatch... More

During a short holiday in the Outer Hebrides we had the pleasure of a couple of nights in the Gearrannan Blackhouse Village staying in a real living museum! When we arrived it was like stepping back in time. The little house is perfect for two of us (there are bigger ones too) with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room.... More
