My daughter booked this cottage as a present for her Dad and me for our 65th birthdays. What a delicious welcome we got when we arrived! Cakes, cakes and more cakes. All of our eyes lit up - not just the grandsons! It was a wonderful gesture and 5 stars to the baker. The house itself is beautiful and has a lovely outlook although the village has no shops so make sure you are well stocked with milk etc. We shopped in Stornoway for some essentials when we arrived on the island but I should have bought more milk since it was quite a wee journey away to get more. The house itself is a home from home with everything you could need in it. (The soap, shampoo and conditioner were brilliant too - I am going to have to send for some of this!) The rooms were spacious and the jacuzzi bath went down a treat although the weather was warm so no-one used the the sauna. No problems getting the grandchildren to have a bath! We had a great time in a beautiful house and met up with some of my husband's childhood friends. The beaches and scenery are beautiful. If we were guaranteed the weather we got most of the time there would be no need to leave Scotland for a holiday - and we didn't even have a problem with midges!!

“A walk to the amazing Callanish stones, and sea view from comfortable central Lewis cottage with sauna and tub.”
Reviewed July 10, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This was a great place for our three generation fortnight's holiday (18m to 65 years) and would suit all sorts of parties. Converted from 'granny's house' to a well appointed modern cottage with dormer room, it's near David, the helpful owner, has a visitors book containing continuous praise and suggestions, has sauna and hot tub to supplement the two ensuite bathrooms, big beds and a study/third bedroom at the other side, ideal for reduced child disturbance! The drive from Stornoway (ferry, supermarkets, shops, soft play, pool, museum at Lews Castle, arts etc) across the island peat moors is quick, changing from bleakness to mountainous beauty with lochs as the skys clear, and the location central to enjoy endless sandy bays from Harris, to Uig and northern Lewis, rocks, hills and scenery as well as history, prehistory, birds, sheep and wildlife. Fresh seafood not far at Miavaig pier. The roads are much better than on my previous trip in 1995, as are places to eat, eg Callanish stones cafe..and other resources. Happy to exchange the wistfulness for facilities. David provided high chair and cot. Internet worked well.
