This cottage was perfect in all aspects. It had great views of the sea, and the cottage was presented at very high standard. The owners left a welcome pack which contained everything to get us started. We would definitely return again and we would recommend to anybody about this cottage.

This was a great location for us, quiet and overlooking the ocean. Lots of beautiful scenery nearby to explore, and good access to Stornoway, about a 10 minute drive. The host has included a lot of books, games, and provisions for guests.
