“Wonderful!”
Reviewed February 16, 2018 for a stay in August 2017

Harris is a beautiful island and White Cottage is a great place to stay to explore it. Been going to White Cottage for more than 15 years and it is always very comfortable and clean. Can't beat sitting outside in the sun eating breakfast before a long walk and swim in turquoise water. The local shop at Leverburgh is well stocked and Tarbert a lovely town to explore.

“Best Stay on Harris”
Reviewed February 15, 2018 for a stay in September 2017

White Cottage is a lovely, homely house in an idylic location. My husband and i have now returned to the White Cottage three times and are booked in for a fourth stay in September 2018. The house gives us all the home comforts we need , coupled with lovely scenery just outside the door and the excellent access it provides to Harris' wonderful scenic walks. The owner ensures that the house is maintained to a high standard both inside and out.

“Stunning location, pet-friendly and well equipped”
Reviewed February 15, 2018 for a stay in September 2017

We loved staying here; Harris is amazing and the cottage is in a stunning area with lots of walks from the doorstep. It is pet-friendly and had everything we needed. The bathroom had recently been refurbished with a spacious walk in shower and the beds were very comfortable. The owner provided a lovely welcome basket and lots of tips on what to see and do in the area.

“Harris and this location was all we had hoped it would be,fantastic!”
Reviewed February 15, 2018 for a stay in October 2017

lovely neat fully equipped tidy cottage in a tranquil setting . The only unfortunate problem for us was being there in October we found the electric heating inadequate. If I may make a suggestion a log burner would be a great addition to this cottage.

thank you for your positive review! the coin meter which is in most seld catering cottages, has made our guests more aware of the useage and most have thanked us as will go more green now... I appreciate not everyone feels the same...we used to have a log burner but had too many burns in wool fitted carpet and stained walls that we removed it..hope so many other things more than make up for a lovely stay...most of our guests come back every 2-3 years again and again...

“Fantastic cottage in an amazing location.”
Reviewed February 19, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have just returned from 7 nights in this cottage and it is a wonderful place.

I believe we may of been the first to stay here this year but I'm only guessing this as we were the first to leave a review in the guest book.

We arrived on the morning ferry after a very long drive and we picked up a puncture on our van(more on this in a mo) the cottage was immaculate with a beautiful new bathroom with a lovely big shower.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for your stay.

Two twin rooms that again were spotless.
We stayed in the front bedroom as this is the best view.

We did have a problem with the water heater in the kitchen but once it was reported to Walter the owner it was fixed with 2 hrs by Gordon the maintenance man and it was Gordon that recommended where I could get my puncture repaired at a small local garage 5 mins from the cottage.

With regards tho the coin meter in the kitchen
We spent £70 for the week on electric with all heaters turned down to number 2 , my wife and I showering daily and cooking daily and out most of the day seeing the island.
We only used the washing machine once(who washes on holiday right) so it is pretty expensive so I'm unsure how other guests have spent £25 a week but we were visiting in February.
This would be my only small minus point of cottage.
However the cost of booking the cottage is far far cheaper than others on the island.

All in all is is an amazing cottage and having spent many years visiting harris and Lewis I can tell you this is one of the best i have seen and great care is put into looking after this cottage.

We will definitely book this again.
