  • "Absolutely 100%, best property we have stayed in on our trips to Scotland and the Isles."

    Glad you enjoyed the cottage and your week with us Thanks for your kind words Property Owner

  • "Fantastic cottage with amazing views over to Eriskay and the adjacent islands."

    We loved just sitting in the lounge looking out of the picture windows at the views that were constantly changing with the different lighting and saw short eared owls and golden eagles flying nearby as well as being visited by the local wild white horses. We stayed as two couples and all agreed that both the cottage and the views were the best we’d ever stayed in. The cottage is well laid out, very comfortable and well equipped and is just as good if not better than the photos on the website. Easy access to the Politician pub over In Eriskay, along with the well stocked local shop there and the nearby co-op in Daliburgh. Breakfasts at the Kilbride cafe were also great and lots of lovely walks and beaches close by made for an excellent holiday.

    Thank you for the wonderful review Stephanie We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and found comfort in the cottage and location All the best to you all Property Owner

  • "We appreciated the owner waiting to greet us when we arrived at Rockpool and the generous basket of local produce that was left for us."

    The setting is stunning, with uninterrupted views to Eriksay and the house itself is to a very high specification. Beds and sofas very comfortable and house really well equipped. We enjoyed the ponies coming to visit most mornings and walking on the beach at low tide was lovely. Thoroughly recommend.

  • "Great weeks holiday at Rockpool."

    Lovely well equipped house with fabulous views across to Eriskay. Comfortable beds, powerful showers with plenty of hot water. Loved having a wood burner with logs supplied. We were lucky to see White tailed Eagles and Otters. Enjoyed a great day out wildlife spotting with Stephen at western-isles-wildlife.co.uk , the shop across the causeway is very good . Excellent food and a warm welcome at the AM Politician, Scallops the size of golf balls! Already planning next years holiday with LHH.

  • "We have rented some fabulous properties but from the moment we entered Rockpool we were blown away by the view, absolutely terrific."

    It never failed to evoke relaxation every time we walked in. We saw loads of seabirds, short eared owl, eagles soaring over the back, ponies, sheep, gannets diving and saw Rhum and Eigg. We will never forget Rockpool and hope to stay again. Also enjoyed day trip to Barra.

    Everything you could ever want in a holiday home is catered for. Beds are super comfy and showers are nice and powerful. The view from the house is however the star of the show, breathtakingly beautiful, whatever the weather.

    The house is well equiped in all. Outside the beautiful deck is very good with outstanding views. Also to be seen inside. The beds are vey comfortable and the shower hot with power. A very good point is the extra tv in the smaller bedroom. We have certainly plans to come again.

  • "This property is absolutely amazing!"

    If you want peace and quiet with fabulous views and beaches, this is the place. The house was spotlessly clean and there was nothing you would want for. The owners are very welcoming and the dog was very safe and settled. We would definitely love to go back, thank you.
