Notes: This property can only be booked from Friday to Friday. Glenview Cottage is a superbly renovated, beautifully furnished self catering property on a stunning site over what must be the loveliest villages on the Isle of Lewis. When you bowl down to Tolsta Chaolais and turn left, up the wee sweep of hill to Glenview you're at once enthralled by it's stance. The house sits neatly on a bluff with a commanding outlook over the village - and much of Lewis and Harris and beyond. It has flexible accommodation for up to four people consisting of the Master double bedroom with an immaculately designed en-suite together with another double bedroom. All bedrooms are beautifully decorated and with the softest and most inviting comforts and furnished to the highest of standards.

The location overlooks a sea loch and is a good base from which to explore the Isle of Lewis and the Isle of Harris. Incredibly white sandy beaches are a short drive away, as are many other interesting places to visit including the super museum in Stornaway. The cottage was decorated and furnished to a high standard and was very comfortable. Whether eating inside or outside, there is that lovely view of the loch to enjoy, and it’s not far to go down to the water’s edge. Highly recommended.

Lovely location with gorgeous views from the conservatory. Although we had quite a lot of rain in our week, the conservatory was cosy and relaxing. The only reason it wasn’t a 5 star review is because the sitting room is too small for 4 people to watch TV in comfy chairs. Ideal for 2 people.

Perfect stay, all you need to hand and great hosts - The cottage has some litte extras to make the place more like home, we were very lucky with the weather for our visit, but I feel it would be lovely in less sunny times also, can imagine the cosiness of the place and rain on the conservatory roof being quite lovely, only downside was the midges! but what do you expect, it is the isles afterall! Booked again for another year and I'm sure many more to come

This has been my third time staying at Glenview and once again it didn’t disappoint!!! Absolutely top quality accommodation with stunning views of the surrounding area. We missed seeing Rhoda and Neil on arrival due to COVID but there was informative information sent out before our arrival which answered any questions / queries that we may have had particularly in relation to COVID. It’s a holiday let that really does feel like a home away from home and we can’t wait to go back next year!!! Thank you Rhoda and Neil!!!!

Nothing had been forgotten in the cottage to make our stay comfortable. Excellent furniture, fittings and equipment throughout. Location is ideal, with many of the most interesting and scenic locations in the island easily accessible. Views from the cottage itself are beautiful with the sunroom a real highlight when weather was less than perfect, and the outside eating area in the decking fantastic when the weather is kind. Would unreservedly recommend.

Back again for our Hebridean "fix". Once again, Rhoda and Neil made us feel welcome and did everything they possibly could to make our holiday in Glenview as relaxing and enjoyable as ever. Cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.

Very friendly welcome with tea and homemade cakes. Beautiful setting with views over the sea and hills. A real home from home with everything we needed to have a relaxing holiday.. Cottage was clean and well maintained with a safe, fenced garden for the dog.

A great central location with amazing views. This lovely cottage guaranteed us a relaxing and inspiring holiday. Our hosts went above and beyond in their friendliness and attention to detail. The cottage overlooks the loch and the village, it was easy to find and had lots of outdoor space, We wouldn’t hesitate to make a return visit.

The cottage is well situated for so many attractions - beaches, walks and an interesting selection of archaeology e.g. The Callanish Stones and historical places to visit. We’d love to stay again.

Together with our grandchild (6) and our dog (11) we had wonderful days in this lovely kept house. The arrival was like a family homecoming. Tea, cake and warm words to introduce us to the house and some of the most impressive points in the area. Everything you need is in the house on a high standard. The kitchen is equipt with everything you need and more! The chimney was the right place for the evening story we have been pointed to by dear Rhodia. Thank you so much for the story of Katie Morag. The enclosed ground was loved by our dog. The house is a wonderful situated place for discovering the Isle of Lewis and we also had two great days on the Isle of Harris. So thank you for providing the house, keeping it in such good condition and renting it to us!
