“This is a great little cottage, great base for exploring the island.”
Unlike other ppl who complain about a bus next door, I can honestly say I never heard it in the morning. Port of Ness is a lovely little place, and loads of great sights on your door step top explore.. Well worth the stay.- Mr Anderson, May 2021
“Not as advertised on website, not the fault of sykes, no problem with them, but as far as cottage goes, very dissapointed.”- mr Blyth, September 2020
“Upon our arrival the owner had not been notified of the booking.”
Thankfully she lived next door and was in. Cottage was beautiful in a perfect location and very clean and had everything you need. One recommendation would be a bigger television. Otherwise a perfect holiday.- Mrs Sweeney, August 2020

The beach at Port of Ness is beautiful & the scenery around the Butt of Lewis is spectacular. We thought that the Western side of Lewis was more beautiful & interesting than the East.- Mr Skinner, October 2019

“Cottage was perfect and just as advertised.”
Just the right size for one (or two), nice and cosy. Village location is lovely with a stunning harbour and beautiful beach only a few minutes walk away. Ness lighthouse and the walk around the head is well worth doing.- Mr Thomas, August 2019
“The cottage made the holiday.”
Thank you for making our holiday a memorable one.- Mr Horner, July 2019
“Outlook could be better as neighbours gardens are not great and surround property, but there is a great beach 2 minute walk.”
Cottage next door runs local bus and parks it in gardens also seems to collect all the money from the other buses so you have a number of buses stopping at front for about an hour each time every night leaving engines running. Also neighbour drives coach out of garden everyday 7.30 to 8 at the side of bedroom so no sleep in. Restricted outdoor space. House good for two, clean and comfortable. Great walks from house- Mr Hodkinson, May 2019
Thanks so much for your feedback.We are sorry if you were disturbed during your stay, this has not been mentioned before. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the property and the local area. Property Owner
“Perfect little bolt hole to escape from the busy world.”
Nothing fancy or posh, and that’s a good thing if you just want to slow down and enjoy the sea and landscape. Just a 2 minute walk from the quiet harbour and beach, and there’s plenty of other short walks to take in the raw beauty of the landscape. With the standing stones at Calanais are a short drive away the whole island has a hypnotic captivating charm - I’m hooked and will return.- Mr Cresswell, April 2019

About the location
PORT OF NESS
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.
