“Great Stay!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Everything we were looking for. Off the beaten track but still close enough to the delights of Lewis. Beaches and walks nearby which the kids loved. The house is very well equiped and spacious and we would love to stay here again.

“Home from home”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 for a stay in February 2012

What a great cottage to stay at. There's a fantastic Welcome Pack and folder full of relevant activities and eateries in the surrounding area from the fabulous Auberge near Uig to Sea Trek trips to St Kilda (although we didn't use them this time!). It's close enough to all the sites so is a good centre for travelling to the likes of Callanish Stones or into Stornoway for lunch at the Woodlands Centre in the castle grounds. The cottage itself has everything you need from hot water bottles to a dishwasher! A veritable home from home! Highly recommended!

“Idyllic Cottage brilliant hosts.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Debbie and I stayed at Calum and Annes cottage in Feb 2012 and April 2013. We wanted a rural location as far a way from the rest of the world as possible. What we got was all that plus a beautiful location and the friendliest kindest hosts you wish to meet. The cottage sits in a ten acre croft which runs down to a sea loch. It is situated in the remote but easily accessible community of Great Bernerea. Although remote there is a local shop, Museum and Community Centre (this has a vibrant series of cultural events). The beaches surrounding this area are truly stunning but for those who do not wish to stray far the walks and views around the cottage are simply breathtaking. Owner Calum is the local RSPCA inspector. Known locally as the singing inspector he is a passionate singer and along with wife Anne has renovated the cottage to a very high standard. Calum is worth a quick chat with and will regale you with stories of stranded whales and seals. Anne and Calum are perfect host always on hand, should you need, and will happily sort our any issues which may arise. This was our second visit to this Hebridean Hideaway and it won't be our last.
