Excellent accommodation.
Fantastic well equipment cottage. Would accommodate 4 people with comfort, two bedrooms with double bed in one and 2 single beds in second. Quality mattresses and pillows and bedding, not been done on the cheap. Great kitchen, great shower and lashings of hot water. Wood burning stove and a bonus for our trip a garage to park up bikes when retuning wet. Great location, well stocked local store and fuel. New Bothy bar soon to open on water front a 5 minute walk away. Can honestly say with our experience of renting we gave it top marks. Attentive owner who is very easy to contact and responds to quires in a timely manner.

About the neighbourhood
Laxdale Cottage occupies a lovely spot close to the coast, over looking the village of Leverburgh towards the ferry port where you can catch a ferry that could take you for a day trip to Berneray and onwards to Uist, or book yourself a trip to St Kilda a World Heritage Site. A short walk from the house will take you to Loch Steisebhat where there is some bank fishing although it’s best fished by boat, this can be organised by booking through Obbe Fishings, details can be found online. As you drive towards Leverburgh from Tarbert you will pass The Isle of Harris Golfcourse at Scarista, this must have one of the most outstanding vistas for a golf course in the world. The Visit Outer Hebrides website is a really good resource for info
Getting around
While there is a bus service to and from both Tarbert and Stronoway it’s best to have your own car to get around.
