“Amazing”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is hands down one of the best cottages I have ever stayed in. It was very spacious, well decorated and had everything you could really need. I am so used to staying in cottages where they don't supply you with anything that I was pleasantly surprised at just how much Eleanor provides for you. The Golden Eagles were out flying around to greet us as we arrived which was brilliant. The area where the cottage is situated is so peaceful and quiet that I wished we hadn't had so many activities planned and we had spent most of the week in the cottage. Eleanor came to greet us when we arrived and she was so lovely and helpful. Even when the pipes started making a noise and I e-mailed her as I was worried about it she had her husband round in 5 minutes to ensure everything was ok (which it was). I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone and everyone and it's so nice having such nice accommodation that allows dogs.

The only thing I would say is about getting food shopping in. We found it difficult to find places to buy food and really the main place is Stornoway which is a 30 - 40min drive away. There are a few community shops and the closest one we found was in Shawbost.

We were also lucky enough to see the northern lights from the garden of the cottage. The pictures I have attached do NOT do it justice, it was utterly amazing! The amount of stars visible to the naked eye on a clear night from the cottage is also amazing with the milky way clearly visible. We lay in bed and watched the stars for a while through the skylight in the bedroom which was fantastic!

“Just amazing!”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Cliscro is everything it was advertised to be ...and more! It is the perfect getaway for solitude. Eleanor had considered the finest details regarding furnishings and even left us with eggs and home-made cake and a bottle of wine...all very much appreciated. Perfect location for Calanais stones and exploring Lewis and Harris. The icing on the cake was Golden Eagles flying around outside the cottage. Our holiday was made very comfortable thanks to Eleanor and her wonderful holiday let. Please remember to shop for food etc., from Stornoway and bear in mind that petrol is 15 miles away...just plan ahead.

Our second stay at Cliscro and every bit as good as the first. Great location fabulous, clean and very well equipped cottage. Wonderful coastal walks (eleanor the owner has a large selection of info on these in her cottage) make the effort to go well worth it. Eleanor is lovely a great host who makes the best Victoria sponge cake ever thanks hope to return in the future.
