The cottage was a delight to stay in with a wonderful old fashioned quality, perfect for its setting!
It was spotlessly clean and cosy and had al the equipment that we needed....a real home from home!
The beds were very comfortable with high quality bed linen and we slept like logs every night. Pleny of fluffy towels were provided.
The cottage is situated in a most stunning location...just a short stroll to glorious unspoilt beaches as long as you 're happy to be out in the wilds which we definitely were!
We really did not want to leave but as we got up at dawn to catch the ferry, about a quarter of a mile down the road 3 stages ran across in front of us and just stood watching! You cannot beat a moment like that.
Thank you Murdo George and Mary for our welcome and lovely bag of goodies on arrival...we especially enjoyed the black pudding and smoked salmon...so kind of you.
We will be back
The Hebridies is without doubt our favorite part of Scotland, it is an absolutely stunning place to visit.
Amazing scenery around Valtos, beaches are incredible and the fishing is great.
My wife and I have been going to Lewis every year for decades now and we always find something new just walking around, over the years we have seen deer, eagles, basking sharks, whales, dolphin, otter, mink, wild cat and a huge list of birds.
The people are very friendly and relaxed, as is the the atmosphere over the whole Island.
The owners of Thirty Bhaltos, the MacKay's are a lovely family, so we thoroughly recommend a visit.
We went to thirty Bhaltos and had a great time. We have booked several self-catering places in various location (London, Edinburgh and Lewis) this trip and in previous years, and this was by far the best place to stay. The cottage is very cosy and spacious. Everything was super clean, all amenities are there, most appliances brand new. The people running this place are very nice and very helpful. We were not familiar with how the electrical grid system worked on the island, they explained it to us. The Internet access was a nice surprise (we had 2 teenagers), I was not expecting it. Bandwidth is not what you would get in a big city, but it is quite usable.
If you are looking for a nice place "out of the beaten path", this is it. Highly recommended.
