“Fine, centrally located base from which to explore Lewis”

The chalet is well located and attractive. The bed in the downstairs bedroom is very comfy. We were slightly disappointed that the woodburning stove (featured in the pictures of the property) didnt have fuel supplied and unfortunately the garage suggested for us to buy it didnt have any. I should say though that the house was perfectly warm without it.....we were just expecting to be able to use it.

This house is a designer home but with all the homely comforts that you could wish for. A beautiful kitchen with raised dining area; a snug area with a woodburner; decking that looks onto the wilderness on one side and the hills and lakes across the front. The bedrooms are laden with lovely bedding and towels galore. There is plenty of space inside and out. It is a fully-equipped house so you don't need to take anything. There are books on the landing, games in the cupboards, a decent TV, en-suites to both bedrooms and views to marvel at whilst eating at the dining table or sitting out on the decking, or just lolling about in the chairs and watching the wildlife beyond the patio doors. I loved it ~ I will book for much longer next time. The owners are very generous and first class providers.

“A great place to stay....”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a lovely time here, with my wife and 11 month old boy. The premises were tidy and well presented with lots of lovely personal touches. We had freshly baked bread on arrival, along with some more lovely treats to eat. The kitchen area is perfect and the log burner a real winner, we had it on 1 evening just to enjoy :)

The views are spectacular and you are situated not far from Stornoway to get essentials. All in all a great stay and we wouldn't fault it . Would considering returning in the future.
