There is an abundance of wildlife, a birdwatcher’s paradise and there is also loch and sea angling. The landscape and seascapes will truly amaze you.

    The cottage was excellent for my wife and I along with our Irish Setter, Ruby and English Setter Lily. The property was very well maintained and beautifully decorated with all the facilities and equipment we needed for our week long stay. It was close enough to Stornoway for shopping etc and an ideal base for exploring the island. The neighbours were very friendly and we had a nice gift of wine and biscuits when we arrived. Would highly recommend as a place to stay.

    It was all a lovely cosy cottage. The bed was really comfortable too with good quality bedding. Really well equipped with all comforts of home in the kitchen too. We really enjoyed our stay and Bear the dog really appreciated the dog treats that were left for him. The humans appreciated the complementary wine and biscuits as well.Made us feel welcome. Thank you
