Fabulous view from the conservator/ydecking, and comfortable lounge with lots of useful information. Tarbert is so well placed to go North - Stornaway, Callanish, UIg; West - Huisnish - super beach; South- west - Luskentyre, Rodel, Leverburgh and more great beaches; and East - The Golden Road. Heaven for dogs - ours came home beached out, and it was so good to find a cottage which allowed them and was safe for them. Very helpful and welcoming owner, we would love to go back.
Kinnoull is a very comfortable and well equipped house with lots of very thoughtful extras provided such as extra waterproofs and jackets as well as drawing materials, beach games,including a cricket set and kites, plus a huge selection of board games, books and DVDs for rainy days.
The elevated location is just fabulous and overlooks the town of Tarbert, the Harris distillery and the harbour from where the ferry sails...what more could one ask?
We had great weather and spent our days on the glorious Hebridean beaches before enjoying an evening sitting on the large balcony sipping our chilled Harris gin and looking out over the Minch to Skye....until the midgies started. Even then, there was no problem because we retired to the safety of the conservatory to lounge on the many sofas in the house. Bliss!
Irene is so welcoming, great fun, very friendly and helpful.
I'm frightened to say too much more in case we can't get in next year!
We have just returned from Kinnoul what a fantastic week, the weather couldn't have been any better, this was our 4th stay in Kinnoul which is like our home from home, the house is, in our opinion the best in Harris, the view from the deck is fab you can't help but chill in this awesome location.
Perfect location for touring Harris and Lewis. Spacious accommodation, with added bonus of huge conservatory where you can enjoy the view, whatever the weather. Decking that extends across the whole front of the house, which we and our dogs loved. Great place for the latter to watch from and to snooze on after a busy day racing around the spectacular beaches of Harris. Very friendly and helpful host. We have already re-booked.
We've stayed in many holiday rentals all over the UK and Europe and this is one of the best. It had everything and more. It is a good size for 6 adults (although no more than 2 in the kitchen at one time) and has everything you need. Irene even provides waterproof clothes and shoes! Its location is perfect - near the ferry terminal, easy to find, walking distance from the Tarbert shops and hotels, and wonderful view. It was marvellous during the good weather and very comfortable during the brief spells of wet weather. It is a brilliant base from which to discover a wonderful Island.
