Brilliant
Perfect, cosy cottage for 2, particularly when the weather outside is wild - and it was. Very comfortable bed.

Lovely quirky cottage in a great location
The cottage is easy to find and is charming and comfortable- and more spacious than we expected (there's a log burner for cold days too). Christina is a very welcoming hostess - the kitchen is well equipped; the bed is comfortable with good bedding and plentiful fluffy white towels; the Welcome Pack was delicious. The location is good - an easy walk to two hotels for dining and bars and shops and butcher for provisions. There is also excellent safe parking. Overall the cottage is a smashing choice and Tarbert is a perfect base for exploring the islands

Perfect for couples central for exploring the island
We had a wonderful stay at the Studio during our visit to the island. It was in the perfect location to allow us to explore. The studio was really comfortable with everything we could need, spacious to spread out and the bed was super comfy and we had great sleeps to reenergise for the next days adventures. We didn't use the kitchen much as we ate out a lot and the bathroom was suitable for our needs with lots of big fluffy towels provided. Many thanks Christina for providing us with the perfect accommodation for our stay x

Fasgadh Studio
Unique, comfortable, well equipped cottage, located within a short walking distance of all local facilities. Centrally located on the Isle of Harris, so most places of interest on Harris/Lewis are within easy reach by car. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The booking process was quick and simple.

Lovely Stay at Fasgadh Studio
The accommodation is the perfect size for a couple, light and airy and extremely well kept. Well located for exploring the Island and a short walk from two hotels in Tarbert for eating out. Although the Harbour Bistro in Scalpay is not to be missed and well worth the short drive. Christina the owner was very attentive and helpful throughout our stay. We would definitely stay here again

Bright, spacious, all the facilities and a fab location for your adventures
Right in the middle of Tarbert, quite literally a couple of minutes walk from the ferry terminal and across the road from the Distillery and Harris Tweed shops, however it's not on the main thoroughfare and so, quiet. The living area has a double height ceiling and very bright and airy with a wood burning stove and a sofa bed which converts into a large (and comfy) double bed. The full size (and with every appliance needed) kitchen and bathroom are under the large double bedroom on the mezzanine. A perfect location for all your Outer Hebrides adventures - making it easy to reach out and into Harris and Lewis. Loved my week long stay - it would have been perfect if there was a garden.

Lovely cottage for two people
The cottage is very spacious for two people as the bedroom is a gallery within a tall main building, leaving plenty of space for the kitchen, bathroom and living room. There is a lovely wooden floor throughout and very easy parking in front of the cottage. Staying in Tarbert has several advantages- grocery stores you can walk to, pub you can walk to, you are on a decent road with easy access to Lewis and the rest of Harris. Tarbert itself isn't a particularly scenic location, but many of the more scenic locations are down single track roads, which adds a fair bit of time to getting around.

This is a most perfect cottage matched by the spectacular surroundings.
A superb cottage equipped with everything required for a fantastic stay. Great location as minutes from the Ferry Terminal and across the road from the Distillery. Some of the most beautiful beaches and turquoise waters are close by and after a good walk great to come back to such a cosy place.

Perfect apartment
We stayed for 5 nights in Christina’s apartment. It was wonderful. The apartment was well equipped, including a scrabble board and was nice and warm, with a working fireplace. Christina was very responsive to any questions we had. We had a great time seeing the island - walks, beaches, wildlife. Would love to come back.

About the neighbourhood
The Isle of Harris is a wonderful place in the truest sense. The turquoise sea and golden beaches of the West coast and the rocky inlets of the Bays of Harris with resident seals, birds and otters. Numerous lochs provide great opportunities for the angler and the North Harris hills are a superb wilderness with epic walking and climbing as well as gentler strolls and potters. Outdoor pursuits like kayaking and cycling are well catered for and day trips to the St Kilda archipelago are a 'must do' for many of our guests. Owner Christina can assist with the planning of your St Kilda adventure. The village of Tarbert has a good range of facilities and amenities and Fasgadh Studio is well located close enough to the hotels and bars to allow for easy dining or drinks should you choose not to self cater now and again.
