  • "Brilliant cottage, loved sitting having breakfast watching gannets diving in the harbour."

    We managed to sit outside a few nights. Had a walk to the lighthouse from the cottage. A great stay in a great cottage

  • "Lovely cottage with outstanding view."

    Comfortable and clean . Well positioned for our needs as we have relations nearby . Well equipped kitchen for two people , although we never used the oven as we took our own air fryer with us. For convenience a couple of small coffee tables would be good . From an aesthetic point of view a blind in the bedroom would be preferable to the heavy duty curtains . Some lovely walks nearby and of course the beautiful beach . Overall an ideal place for us to stay if we are on our own

  • "Wonderful spot overlooking the beach."

    House was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. We had great weather and discovered Isles of Lewis & Harris. Wonderful people and we filled our week easily, even managed a 1000 piece jigsaw on the dining table! Highly recommend

  • "We had a lovely stay at Road End Cottage."

    The only thing I would have said I would have preferred was for the windows to have some curtains in the living area instead of just the very light blinds. Lots of tourist buses etc park up across the street and there can be quite a bit of foot traffic at times to. Curtains would give you the option of more privacy if required.

  • "Excellent accommodation, fantastic view."

    You must visit Anthony in his studio nearby, his pictures are superb. The fish and chips from the cafe overlooking the harbour are marvellous.

  • "Beautiful location with wonderful scenic view."

    Some lovely walks right on your door step along with a cafe just across the road so your able to go for something to eat with no need to take the car. Anthony’s art gallery is just a minute up the road with pictures of all around the Outer Hebrides that capture the beauty of the Islands. The cottage had everything you need for a comfortable stay and the owners are available if you do need anything.

    We are glad that you enjoyed your time in Road End Cottage. Thank you for your lovely comments. Property Owner

Absorb the breath-taking scenery as you approach this stunning little cottage, parking off-road and unpacking conveniently, making yourself at home in this fantastic holiday home.

Settle down for a coffee in the beautiful sitting/dining room where a woodburning stove warms your feet as you plan the day ahead of you in an opulent space with wooden flooring throughout, stylish furniture and a stunning view to the bay which can be enjoyed from the dining room table over a glass of wine.

When mealtimes call, create the perfect romantic meal for two in a spacious kitchen with all of the home-from-home amenities you will need, with a view to the countryside and décor to match the opulence of the sitting area; tiled flooring, wooden and marble-look work surfaces and high ceilings giving an airy feel.

After a long day spent at the beach, shake the sand from your hair with a soak in the shower, dark wooden flooring and tasteful décor creating a welcoming space for you to refresh before finding your way into the stunning master bedroom, sporting a king-size bed, dark wooden furniture, tasteful green walls and a view to the beach that is simply amazing.

You can further enjoy the views in the sitting area outside where a wooden bench and drystone wall creates an inlet of calm from where you can be captivated by the ever changing waterscapes of the ocean.

Port of Ness is a stunning area perched at the tip of the Outer Hebrides and displaying a range of fantastic beaches, where white sand and rugged cliffs create a stunning backdrop for romantic walks.

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.

Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental. Note: Please bear in mind that this property is located on an island and therefore only accessible by plane or ferry.
