“Breathtaking”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

A truly memorable holiday, the Uists are simply breathtaking! The island is so easy to get around and although very remote there is a big Co-op only five minutes away from the house. The beach is a five minute walk from the house and could quite easily be mistaken for a Caribbean landscape! The ferries are so straightforward and open up more possibilities such as Lewis and Harris, which are stunning.

The house itself is absolutely perfect. The two double beds are very comfortable and the Velux windows with blackout blinds ensure that you get a really good sleep. The lounge is a nice size and very homely - it provided the perfect setting to catch up on the late night action from the Olympics! The kitchen is again a good size and fully equipped and the view out of the back window provides the perfect backdrop for cooking.

Thank you Ronalda and Morag for a great trip!

“What a gem of a croft in a gem of a location”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Family House is a croft house on the Island of South Lewis. In an idyllic location, peaceful, quiet and with nothing but the sound of the birds to break the tranquility.
The croft is supremely comfortable and very well furnished and provided. We only booked a short break but we would have been comfortable for months - in fact one previous occupant had spent the whole summer there very happily.
We walked across the fields to the beach and the small offshore island, went to a Ceilidh in Lochboisdale, explored the coast and the machair trail, visited the wonderful and evocative island of Eriskay and ended our four days refreshed and completely chilled out. A supermarket is a convenient three miles away, there is a local museum of Hebridean life and there are several other local craft and cottage industries and interests.
And Morag could not have been more hospitable and helpful. Thank you so much.

A comfortable, well equipped house. Bedrooms and lounge are compact, and kitchen is a good size. The house is a 20 minute level walk to the beach and has long views to the hills and over the machair.

people found this review helpful

We stayed in the house for a week and enjoyed visiting the island travelling all over knowing we had a clean and fresh house to come back to each evening ,
relaxing in the garden with the views of the sea on one side and hills on the other .
a lovely stroll to the beach from the house took no time at all with its pure white sands.
