“Perfectly simple”
Reviewed October 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This place is large enough for 6 and is cozy, quaint and sweet. The facilities for a self catering are fine and there was even bread, milk and butter in when we arrived. Washing tablets and dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid etc. Plentiful bedding and clean. Lovely surroundings, near Callanish stones 1/2 hr from Stornoway but great drive through to the town. 'village' very small as they are and everyone friendly and lovely. Internet available (needed for teens) and everything clean. Beds not as comfy as I'm used to at home but I could have put bedding on to make more comfy I guess. Not REALLY accessible for wheelchair but managed with a little adaptation by means of some wooden ramps, wouldn't be possible to use chair indoors however. The hosts were fabulous and even posted back my daughter's DS which she left plugged in and some clothes she failed to pack,lol! Really worth staying with these lovely people!! Our small dog was also welcome!

“A comfortable 'home from home'”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A comfortable cottage that allows you to really experience the beauty and tranquility of the Isle of Lewis. Everything you need is in the cottage and a friendly welcome awaits you. We really enjoyed our stay and the cottage was a good base to explore Lewis and Harris.

We needed someplace to relax and unwind, and a base to thoroughly explore the Hebrides, and this place was perfect. Clean, comfortable, great location, modern conveniences-even a dishwasher! We didn't want to leave. Reasonable rates, close to the Callanish stones, and Nina was so lovely and nice, and helpful, yet gave us privacy as well. A very excellent place to stay!
