“Luxury cottage in a magical setting”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Both inside and outside this is a very special place. The view over a sea loch just 10 minutes from the ferry terminal in Tarbert is glorious, with wildlife and weather always changing. Inside this is a luxury couple's retreat, with a sauna, walk-in shower, huge freestanding bath, cinema room with large selection of DVDs and leather reclining chairs, and a well-equipped kitchen.

“Perfect!!”
Reviewed 20 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Amazing cottage! Even better than the pictures suggest. Equipped with everything you could want and more. Cinema room, sauna and sound system really took the cottage to another level. We enjoyed total relaxation by playing waterfall and ocean sounds through the sound system while relaxing in the sauna. It was like having our very own spa; thoroughly recommend! Very comfortable bed, bright and clean accommodation, stunning views. Perfect cottage for our honeymoon. A well needed quiet escape! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

“Beautiful cottage for a relaxing break”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We spent a week in Sonas cottage as a base for visiting Harris, Lewis and St Kilda. The location is good, making all areas easily accessible and close to Tarbert where there are a few options for eating out, as well as the ferry from Skye.

The house was even better than the picture suggest and more than worth the price, especially as given the weather in the Outer Hebrides means you may need to spend a cosy day or two inside during your trip. It is extremely well equipped. The kitchen had everything that you could possibly need (and more) and is beautiful. The view from the sofa in the sitting room means that the TV is barely even needed! The bedroom was lovely and the bed and pillows very comfortable - we slept extremely well every night. The Sonas music system is a nice touch and we also used the cinema room which is a really unique feature. The sauna was also very welcome after a day out in the cold.

Overall we had a really lovely stay. Quiet, relaxing and comfortable. The house is of the highest quality and we would recommend it to couples visiting the area. One point would be though make sure you bring groceries if arriving via Tarbert, the shopping is very limited and from what we could see you need to get to Stornaway for a "big" shop. The isolation makes the place though so this is certainly not a negative. Wonderful!

“Fantastic hebridean getaway”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Following a bout of ill health we decided to holiday in Scotland this year instead of our usual long haul holiday to a faraway place. After much deliberation we decided on Harris and Sonas Cottage for a week and we couldn’t have picked anywhere better, we had a lovely week. Harris is beautiful and Sonas Cottage was the perfect base to explore the island from.

As previous reviewers have said Sonas Cottage is fully equipped with everything you will need and it fully met our expectations. Unfortunately, we didn’t get around to trying out the sauna or roll top bath but we made full use of the fabulous cinema, rainfall shower and (our favourite) the superb sound system.

We would recommend Harris and Sonas Cottage and hope to return sometime in the future.

“Two wonderful weeks in a superb cottage”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

My wife and I decided to stay 2 weeks in Sonas cottage, initially because we thought that it could not possibly rain in North Harris for 14 days! We were lucky in that it only rained for 5!
It didn't matter, whether we were stuck indoors all day, or came back exhausted following extensive walks in the hills/glens, the facilities at the cottage were such that we could never be bored. Much has been said of the cinema room, songs music system,sauna,huge bath,rain shower - all true. To that I would add,a great picture window in the living room a very comfy bed plus a well equipped kitchen and efficient heating,dishwasher,washing machine,drier.
If we ever return to this part of the world, Sonas would be for us.
We flew into Stornaway (Flybe were brilliant) and a car is really a necessity
