“Peaceful oasis”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Wonderful stay in this beautiful setting. Perfect for a relaxing break away from it all. Facilities excellent with everything you need and more. Yummy cakes made by very welcoming owner - Aggie who with husband Angus made this a lovely holiday experience. Will definitely be back again.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at Eranca Cottage. On arrival we were greeted by Agnes & Angus, who are delightful and had treated us to homemade cakes and bubbly to celebrate, which was such a lovely touch to start our honeymoon. The cottage is very well equipped and finished to a high standard. It had everything you could think of plus all the little extras, really making it a home from home, so much so, we did not want to leave. The cottage has a strong wifi signal, which was very useful, so we can plan our day trips. The cottage is ideally located to explore the island, offering some great views. We cant wait to come back and visit again. Thank you Agnes and Angus for a fantastic stay at your cottage.

Stayed here for 1 week and this is a must do cottage. It has been developed to a very high standard and is exceptionally clean and presentable. Ideal for exploring the Isles of Lewis and Harris. The cottage is very well equipped and is cosy and comfortable. The bathroom is very luxurious and has a jacuzzi bath, which is great following long walks. Aggie and Angus are very welcoming and are extremely helpful and friendly.
Thanks for a great stay. I would advocate that you book early to avoid missing this as a base for exploring as it feels like home from home.

Cottage is cozy,charming,and fully equipped with modern appliances. Located short driving distance from amazing historic and natural sites, like the Calanais stones. Perhaps best feature of rental are hosts Aggie and Angus who treat you like family.

We received a very warm welcome from Angus and Aggie on our arrival. We were greeted by a table beautifully set out with the most delicious array of cakes, scones, homemade jam and chocolates. Our accommodation was first class with all the facilities we could want and more. Angus and Aggie have made a lovely home from home for all of their guests and Alan and I could not recommend it highly enough. If you plan to stay in Lewis look them up.

We loved staying at Eranca. The owners are extremely welcoming and helpful. The cottage is new and modern, very beautifully decorated with very modern appliances. The bathroom is out of this world. Eranca is parfectly situated to explore Lewis, close to the historical sites and beautiful beaches. We are very happy with our choice and were very sad to leave.

“The best place I have ever stayed”

Eranca was simply the best holiday rental I have ever used. The standard of the furnishings and fixtures is outstanding and the cleanliness of the cottage when we arrived was very impressive. The cottage has spectacular views that are constantly changing with the light and weather conditions and the whole of Harris and Lewis is an easy drive away. My wife and I loved walking in the day to come home and chill out in front of the massive TV on the comfy sofa. Aggie and Angus dropped in to see us on our last night there having been on their own holiday and were very friendly and welcoming. I will definitely be returning.
