  • "Shalom Cottage was all we could have wished for."

    Clean, comfortable, warm with the best view over the Sound of Harris. Very well equipped especially as we love cooking, lobsters and langoustines from the pier, venison haunch steaks from the North Harris estate, scallops from the shack on the way to Uig, and the local community shop were so helpful and had all that we needed including saffron!! Croft 36 in Northton provided bread, some lunch and sweet treats. Bird watching was a treat and we had great sightings from the cottage itself as well as from the car and on foot all around the islands, averaging a Sea Eagle every day as well as many other exciting birds big and small. Thank you Kathryn for the oatcakes (Luskintyre, Kathleen MacLeod) and the fruit loaf (perhaps McLeans) and your helpful suggestions. A great nostalgia trip for us all remembering sailing out to St Kilda (which we saw again from the top of Toe Head) and our other trips including anchoring in Rodel Harbour, a lovely walk away from the end of the road, Harris has so much to offer and Shalom cottage became our home from home, thanks again, Grace & Grant, Dundee, Neil & Sheena, Andorra

  • "Immaculate property with amazing views over islands to the south of Harris."

    House was spotless, very modern, everything you need and more. Owner very friendly, very welcoming. Loved our week so much we have booked again for May 21.

  • "We arrived at Shalom Cottage to find a wonderful welcome pack and an even more wonderful view!"

    A series of windows in the living and dining areas provide you with a choice of views and, if the wind allows, you can sit outside at the table and enjoy an unbroken view of the Uists and other islands - fantastic! The cottage was very well equipped with all you could need (although families note that the only hanging space is in the twin bedroom) and we didn't want to leave!

  • "We have just returned from the most fantastic week at Shalom Cottage."

    Everything was perfect. The cottage is extremely comfortable and the owners ensure that their guests lack nothing they need. The views, the people, the whole place is sublime. We are already planning our next trip.

    A must for wildlife watchers. Relaxing, cozy, warm home from home with everything you require. Well stocked shop 5 minutes drive away ( Coop ) Beaches everywhere. A holiday loved by myself and my dogs. Really does have the best views on the island, and will return.

  • "Just back from a fabulous week at Shalom Cottage."

    Arrived to find bread, oatcakes, quiche, salmon, fresh orange and a chilled bottle of white wine - just lovely. Cottage very comfortable with beautiful views, and the owners were so accommodating and helpful, even dropping us off and picking us up from The Anchorage after a meal on our last night there. Couldn't have asked for anything better, and we'll definitely be back.

  • "We have stopped in several cottages in the area but this cottage has the edge in many ways."

    It is a beautiful location facing out onto the Sound of Harris benefitting from an elevated site above the general property in the area. It is wonderfully equipped with everything that you need for a fully self catered holiday. The accommodation is pristine and works very well to keep everyone connected whether resting, reading, cooking or eating the splendidly aspected main room combines all functions seamlessly. The windows also give a variety of views along the hillside and out to sea. The balcony adds another dimension to eating and relaxing as it sits majestically in front of the picture windows to the lounge with panoramic views to die for. The bedrooms are set to the rear with side views still providing sea views thank to the property's elevation. They are a comfortable size and there is totally adequate storage. The bathroom is exceptional with a double shower and a Jacuzzi bath perfect for relaxing after a long walk on the hills and enough space to hold a party in! The utility room provides washing and ironing facilities with ample storage for coats and shoes, it is really well appointed with storage cupboards too. The equipment in the kitchen is better than most domestic kitchens although the cooker can be a challenge to the technophobe! The external boiler room provides extra space for drying of clothes and space for the recycling ensuring uncluttered main accommodation very useful if the weather is less than cooperative. The heating is fully adaptable and can provide everything from cool to sauna and there is no limit on the usage. The owner is accessible and nothing is too much trouble if you want that extra thing or you need something explaining. We could not think of anything that could be improved. We have been stopping at the cottage for several years now at its standards have never dropped. We strongly recommend this property if you want the best house in the area and what a beautiful area it is!
