  • "As I said to you, the house was lovely and comfortable."

    I have nothing at all negative to say. It made my stay a very happy one with all the great days out. Thank you again.

  • "This is the best accommodation we have ever had in the Outer Hebrides."

    We have stayed in many accommodations here over many years. Excellent. The price of our stay was much lower than anything I could find on the internet at the time of booking. Supply of fruit and biscuits etc more than necessary. Many thanks A.

  • "What a lovely property."

    Am Blar Beag was the absolute favorite of all of our accommodations during our 16 day trip to Scotland and we covered a lot of territory. Cristina and Angus have gone above and beyond to ensure all wants/needs are covered. The welcome basket was delightful. If time ever allows, we will go back. Susan W. Comox BC Canada

  • "The immaculately clean and comfortable cottage was equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break and the welcome pack of local produce was excellent."

    There is so much to explore in the Ness area with it's stunning beaches, scenery and wildlife (there were red deer and hen harrier close to the cottage) that a week wasn't enough to appreciate it all.

  • "A very clean cottage in a quiet location."

    From the furnishings really everything available. Coffee can be made, as mostly in England, with the coffee makers (known from Italy). The landlords were very friendly, we had telephone as well as personal contact, even a welcome package (at the weekend no grocery store is open on the Hebrides) was abundantly available. We felt very comfortable! A heartfelt thank you

  • "What an enjoyable week we have had."

    The house is just perfect, has everything you could ever need. So thoughtfully put together. Lovely to find a welcome pack to get us going. A great base for exploring the area. The kids loved the park at Eoropie. it is fantastic. The beaches here are stunning, the boys loved running in and out of the water, despite it being freezing! Recommend the Wobbly Dog for some yummy cake and the Breakwater for amazing pizza! Overall a fantastic holiday and hope we can return soon! C, C, M & S Glasgow

  • "We were very pleasantly surprised by the size of the house, the lovely big kitchen and it had everything (and more than) we needed."

    We loved spending a week here discovering Lewis and especially all the facilities around Ness. We went bowling in Sporsnis which was great fun, ate cake (several times) at the Wobbly Dog and really enjoyed the Ness museum. But most of all we loved spending time on the amazing beaches around Lewis. You really don't need to go anywhere else if you get some good weather! (It was so lovely to find a basket with treats , some supplies in the fridge and fruit in a fruit bowl - much more than we would ever have expected and such a warm welcome. ) Thankyou, I, L & R Glasgow

  • "Where do we begin?"

    House is perfect - clean, modern, equipped with everything you need. Had another great week on Lewis/Harris - saw plenty as usual and ate amazingly thanks to Charles McLeod butchers in Stornoway. Welcome pack was great and some of the eggs will be purchased to come home with us.
