An excellent conversion of a black house. Well laid out and equipped with all essentials required. Would recommend to family and friends and wouldn't hesitate in returning.

“Lovely cottage for two”
Reviewed July 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Nicely refurbished and well thought out conversion of a traditional crofter's cottage. There are some lovely individual touches and was very clean and tidy on arrival.

A beautifully appointed little black house. It was very cosy and quite and it was a brilliant place to watch wild life, especially birds of prey.. the cottage had one bed room which was beautiful clean ,with nice bed linen. The bathroom was small but it had a good shower, The kitchen had all that you needed to be comfortable a dishwasher ....the sitting room was comfortable.. all the furniture fitted the cottage well... it was all just perfect.. it had WiFi no phone but who needs one on holiday anyway would have no problem recommending this to anyone...

“Comfortable house in a beautiful location”
Reviewed June 24, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

The house was comfortable, cosy and clean. A lovely conversion from an old croft building, kitted out with everything you need. The croft is located close to one of the many beautiful beaches on the west coast of the island. We had a lovely relaxing holiday with lots of runs and walks. There is an abundance of wildlife on your doorstep here. We enjoyed being surrounded by working crofts and the herb garden next to our house. Tigh Chearsabhagh in Lochmaddy is worth a visit. Highlight was actually seeing a corncrake and the views to St Kilda on one of the few bright days we had. Our only complaint was the weather, though it didn't stop us getting out and about.

A lovely nest in a remote location, close to some of the best beaches in Scotland, and maybe in Europe. Very confortable, this warm and small cottage suits a solo traveller or a couple. Great Herbs boat where we could pick up fresh mint and chives.
