“A luxurious and tranquil getaway”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed at the cottage last week (September 2015) and had a most wonderful experience.
The cottage was superb and of an extremely high standard - a luxurious, tranquil, and comfortable place to get away to.
We were very impressed by all the little extras.
The views were incredible.
This was the best place we have ever retreated to.
The island is a beautiful place.
We had a great holiday, and a great experience.

Thank you

“Beautiful & Special”

Eagle Bay Cottage is a beautiful & special place to share with someone special. We spent a week in August, it was luxurious, peaceful and relaxing with the most amazing night skies over the sea loch. Beautiful views from wherever you where in the cottage including the lovely large bath big enough for 2. We thought wow when we first saw it on the web site but the reality was even better. A lovely warm welcome from David with lots of goodies on arrival. Just perfect.

“A dream house in a dream location”

This is an absolutely beautiful house, fairly new but fabulously located and provisioned with designer bathroom, sauna, designer kitchen with Neff white goods, Le Crueset pans, Sophie Conran cutlery, etc and facing the every-changing view of the Harris mountains.
The weather is the only unreliable feature for this property and location, but even if it is inclement, just sitting and relaxing in the beautiful surroundings, enjoying a glass of wine or champagne with smoked whisky-flavoured salmon, this place offers peace and solitude away from the bustle and pressures although the internet access keeps you up to date.
Didn't need to use the bicycles available or the fishing rods and centrally located for touring Lewis or nipping over to Harris.

“Stunning accommodation in magnificent location!”

We have just returned from an amazing week staying at Eagle Bay Cottage. The house is stunningly designed with the highest quality furnishings, equipment, linen and toiletries - not to mention the wonderful welcome pack including a bottle of champagne! The owners were also extremely welcoming, helpful and available at any time during the week.

Eagle Bay Cottage is perfectly located in the beautiful Lochs area not too far from Stornoway or any of the main places of interest - of which there are many across Lewis and Harris - such a fascinating place!

The name also lives up to its reputation with the highlight of our stay on the last day watching golden eagles soaring overhead nearby and otters playing on the rocks just outside - delightful!

One of the best holidays ever and would genuinely love to return!

My wife and I were blown away by the Eagle Bay Cottages. This may be the most beautiful place we have stayed in our lives. The view was superb! The cottage romantic and fabulously clean. Soaking tub with a view of the water. Listening to the wind howl at night as the wood stove burned. Kathleen and David were wonderful hosts - leaving us a detailed book of hikes and tours and restaurants, as well as a welcoming basket with smoked salmon, croissants, marmalade, tea, coffee, five types of fruit and a wonderful bouquet of white roses. On a scale of one to ten, it is a twelve. We hope to come back again.

“A return visit - and even more fabulous than I remembered!!”

I've reviewed Eagle Bay before, but feel I just have to confirm that our return visit recently for a longer stay was really FAB. This time we followed the itineraries that are provided for the cottage and were supplied to us in advance so we did a bit of planning this time for our 5 nights. The cottage is still immaculate - as if never used before and the views from the windows are just fabulous. Soaking in the bath looking out over the bay is particularly indulgent. We love this place and the surrounding area. We incorporated a boat trip based on Kathleen's recommendation which was excellent and which I will review separately,

“Stunning!”

The other reviews say it all really - this place is seriously special. My husband and I had the most perfect week. The cottage is just beautiful, exquisitely decorated with top quality furnishings, yet understated and elegant. We don't think we have ever slept so well away from home, the bed is to die for! The views from the cottage are breathtaking - we had to keep pinching ourselves. The cottage has everything you could possibly need for a perfect holiday - from the excellent picnic hampers/thermos flasks, to the Parlux hairdryer and REN toiletries. We consider ourselves well travelled and enjoy luxury breaks, but Eagle Bay takes things to another level - this was our best holiday ever and we can't wait to go back. Thank you to Kathleen and David for a truly wonderful week.
