What a wonderful cottage this is! Agnes has thought of everything to make it feel like home from home with comfy lounge area and bedroom. The luxury of a bath and a shower and the finishing touches of the welcome treats and gin! The view from the decking is stunning. Ideally situated for visiting the breath taking Callanish Stones, the white beaches of Uigg, Tolsta and on Harris. The Butt of Ness is definitely worth the drive. Our visit to the Isle of Lewis and Harris will never be forgotten ❤️

On the Loch shore with views to the north Harris and uig hills this is a great location to have a base. The cottage is a lovely place, bright and fresh with nice touches from the welcoming cake selection to the decking area for outside seating. Welcoming hosts and a week of great weather helped make for a wonderful holiday. And don’t forget a mile down the road to visit the callanish alpaca visitor attraction with duck rescue and chickens of amazing variety; each with a name and story the amazing guides will happily regale you with !

We had a lovely week in Eranca Cottage. Angus & Agnes are a lovely couple, & made us feel very welcome. The cottage is in a brilliant position situated on a private road & right beside the side of the Loch. It was so close to all the main attractions on our list of must sees & not far from Stornaway. The cottage is warm, cosy , clean, modern & perfectly suited for a couple. The mini decanter of gin went down very well out on the decking in the evening and Angus’s sister in laws cakes were divine. Packed them up for walking treats. Just be aware everything on the island closes on Sunday. We were very lucky with the weather & the midges. All round brilliant holiday.

We have had the best time staying at Eranca Cottage, the location is perfect. A wonderful welcome and the home baking was just incredible! The Cottage is spotless and has everything you need. The Callanish Standing Stones are close by. We visited a different beach every day – all gorgeous. Delicious meal at Uig Sands and an enjoyable Harris gin distillery tour with more beach visits to end a fabulous holiday. Thank you Angus and Agnes.

We received a warm and generous welcome from the hosts when we arrived. The house is spotlessly clean, warm and well appointed. We found everything we needed for cooking and dining, the shower and jacuzzi bath were excellent and the double bed was extremely comfortable. There’s a lovely decked area leading out to a fabulous view over the Loch and distant hills. Many of the important historical sites are nearby, as is the fantastic Uig beaches and Valtos peninsula which should not be missed. I’m sure we will return one day. Thank you so much for your generosity, Angus and Agnes.

My wife and I visited the stunningly situated Eranca cottage in the last week of May and were simply blown away. We were given the warmest of welcomes possible on arrival and were shown around the cottage by Angnes and the home baking and wee decanter of Gin was a welcome surprise. The cottage has everything you would need, it's cozy, homely, peaceful and perfectly situated for exploring both North and South of the island. And the spa bath was a godsend after a day spent exploring! Some tips for the island: 1. I can't stress this enough, make the effort to drive out to the Mangersta Sea Stacks one evening for a sunset - its unbelievable. (plus you will probably see loads of deer En-route) 2. Do the butt of Lewis loop - 2.5 miles, its not a particularly difficult walk and we saw deer, seals, and a basking shark. Stunning scenery as well. 3. Food: Pizza at Crust is off the scale good, Boatshed is lovely (if a bit pricey), decent meal and affordable at the Crown Inn. (Brilliant service as well).

We received a very warm welcome from the host and the table was set for tea with a superb selection of delicious cakes. A beautiful bouquet of flowers were arranged in a vase and there was a nice large screen television. The patio doors gave us a good view of the Loch. We were very comfortable staying at Eranca cottage, we had everything we needed. There was a large assortment of books, guides and leaflets which helped us to decide which places to visit and walks to do etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Cannot rate Eranca Cottage highly enough. We received a lovely welcome to this wonderful cottage from Angus. On entering the the cottage, the table was set for afternoon tea with lots of home baking. The cottage is fabulous, very comfortable, with great views and in a brilliant central location for touring Lewis and Harris. Both Angus and Agnes are lovely hosts and live next door if any help is required. Would have no hesitation in booking again if we were to visit the Island.
