  • "Wow, what a property and what a location."

    Just outstanding the property is top draw everything is done to a very high standard. All the little details, extra thoughts and care to attention were there. We loved it and spent many a happy hour or two in the reclining sofa staring out to sea with a glass of bubbles. Best holiday let yet and we use Sykes Holiday Cottages a few times most years. Thanks to the owners as they obviously really care that people enjoy their stay.

  • "We always book a cottage of a similar price and quality about twice a year but hands down this is the best place we have stayed in."

    You’ve nailed it, everything about the cottage was perfect for us. It had everything that you could want inside and out. If I lived there I would get nothing done as I spent a lot of time just standing and looking at the view. 10/10 I would recommend this cottage to anyone. Thank you so much it was the perfect holiday.

  • "Great house, great location, wonderful view over bay and sea."

    Very well equipped, and besides the coffee machine, the most expensive and unecological way to make coffee, there are also two cafétieres (Bodum Drückerkannen). So everything is perfect for a relaxing holiday, which we also had!

  • "On the house, it was absolutely perfect."

    The location was perfect, and the house had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean, and we will certainly stay again when we go back to Lewis.

  • "What a feast for the senses!"

    We have had a spectacular week. How we will miss the view! That view! Wow! Many happy memories and lots of relaxing. Thankyou so much.

  • "It was a long journey to get here but worth it."

    The windows took over from the TV screen with the constant changing view. Took a walk to Butt of Lewis , not for the fainthearted when close to the cliffs. Seals, porpoises, loads of birds - amazing. We relaxed a lot as the cottage is so comfortable it was hard to leave to be honest. If you get to Harris don't miss Luskentyre beach and the gin distillery.

  • "Wow! What a beautiful home and stunning location."

    We've felt completely at home here and very relaxed - much needed. What a treat to sit and eat meals while watching seals in the sea and dogs having fun on the beach. This is a beautiful island. The house is well stocked.

The property

Ness 1.7 miles.

Settled in the stunning landscape of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, this beautiful cottage looks out across a picturesque bay.

Perfect for a romantic couple holiday for those who love remote adventures, this cottage has easy access to local beaches as well as a homely and yet contemporary feel.

Overseeing the bay of Ness Harbour, upon arrival you are greeted by a cottage that won the 2012 Self Build Design Award; when you enter into the open-plan living space it is easy to see why.

Airy and spacious, with quirky floor-length windows and a woodburning stove to fight off the Hebridean chill, you are invited to lounge upon the leather sofas and take in the magnificent view visible through a large wall-length windows, allowing the wild scenery to melt into the homely cottage theme with a contemporary twist, and when in need of a snack or preparing a romantic meal together, utilise the fully equipped kitchen space and serve up your perfect breakfast on the dining table with a view to the bay.

Blue décor and bedding enhance the feel of the seaside in the comfortable king-size bedroom, with storage, wooden floors and even a pair of binoculars to see exceptional wildlife and freshen up in the stylish tiled en-suite shower room.

Outside there is a decking area with furniture you can enjoy an evening hot chocolate as you watch the sun set and reflect upon your day; the glass sliding doors of the living space open up to the garden.

One of the greatest aspects of this area is the multitude of stunning beaches, including Ness Harbour just a short walk away, or you can seek out the more well-known Ness and Eoropie, perfect for watersports, wild-swimming and romantic evening walks with your significant other.

Local craft can be found in potteries and small galleries, with several local cafes just a short walk from the house, including Café Sonas, Wobbly dog of Lewis and The Breakwater.

As seen across the island as a whole, wildlife being plentiful is a wonderful feature of this area, with an abundance of nesting birds including gannets, or you can visit Loch Stiapabhat Nature Reserve to explore the wildlife further whilst enjoying a countryside hike.

To lose yourself in the rich history of the area, visit the Butt of Lewis and the accompanying lighthouse to see some of the oldest rock formations in Europe and the historical landmark of Dùn Èistean.

When you need to stock up on supplies, visit Borve mini market which is 9.5 miles, or at Stornoway there is a Tesco and a larger selection of bars and restaurants.

Get the ferry from Ullapool to Stornoway or get the ferry to Stornoway to reach this property.

About the location


Ness 1.5 miles; Bragar 19.7 miles; Stornoway 26.8 miles

With an intriguing little harbour backed by a jagged headland, merging into an east-facing beach, the Port of Ness rests at the northern tip of the Isle of Lewis. Offering an insight into the legends, lore and long-observed traditions that have shaped the island’s identity, this community, in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, is a stronghold of the Gaelic language. Harbour View Gallery is where you will find some of locally-based artist Anthony J Barber's works on view. Cross boasts an inn that looks slightly out of place, along with one of the brightest and most cheerful looking post offices you'll find anywhere. From the nearby Butt of Lewis you can look out across the unforgiving waters of the Atlantic and stand in the shadow of a Stevenson lighthouse built of red brick. Take in the breath-taking scenery from the Isle of Lewis' northernmost point, surrounded by the swells of an ever-rising sea. The Butt of Lewis features some of the oldest rocks in Europe, having been formed in the Precambrian period. Discover Dùn Èistean, an archaeological site on the north east coast, showcasing the ruins of two large buildings amongst grassy tussocks. Stornoway is just 40 minutes away by car, with a busy working harbour, selection of shops selling local gifts including Harris Tweed and award-winning restaurants selling locally sourced food. Visit Lews Castle Grounds and the iconic Lews Castle as well as museums and art galleries. This beautiful location is for those looking to get out and explore the rural landscapes and fascinating Scottish heritage the Isle of Lewis has to offer.
