Albany Cottage is better than the pictures show; great attention to detail has been applied throughout to the facilities available, decor, cleanliness and some nice additional touches such as dressing gowns, slippers, shower & bath gels, wi-fi and some landline phone usage included (as mobile signal throughout the islands is patchy). The cottage benefits from great natural light and the views are fantastic. The location is central for seeing both Lewis and Harris and only a short drive to Tarbert for shops, hotels etc. Couldn't fault it.
Location good, facilities in house excellent. Everything is 'John Lewis' so good quality. Helpful info in cottage, and kind of owners to check that we were ok.
We loved South Harris and Bosta beach on Lewis. Nice walk up to Scalpay lighthouse. Minibus tour was great too. Cath picked us up from Tarbet and we had a day with her. She showed us beautiful beaches, Leverburgh and wonderful 'croft 36,' not to mention the weaving vist to Rebecca at Northton and the Harris Tweed exhibition about Marion Campbell - most interesting.
Weather was hot all week, got sunburnt. Wellies, coats etc definitely never came out of the car. Ferry from Leverburgh to Berneray wonderful, we did it twice, once as foot passengers then as we left 4 days later with car. A great holiday. Thanks.
The cottage was extremely comfortable and well-appointed. It had everything we required and more. The attention to detail was remarkable with printed and annotated instructions for all the facilities and also a comprehensive folder of local walks and other activities. Martin made contact early in the holiday to check we had everything we needed. Although we had a week of glorious weather the external drying room will prove extremely useful in less clement conditions!
Provided with easy to follow directions to the cottage which is a maximum of a 10 minute drive from the ferry terminal. Everything you could wish for contained there, lots of information on places to visit and things to do. Sat reading in the sunshine on the bench at the rear of the property, slept well in a very comfortable bed. Great trip all round.
A really lovely cottage in a beautiful area. Everything in there has been thought of perfectly, from clear instructions for all the appliances, right down to the availability of binoculars. Would definitely stay there again.
