Guest Comments

“Loved this little cottage. Warm and cosy with everything you needed. We found the route down to the beach to walk the dogs. Garage down the road also had a wee shop and also the cheapest petrol on the island.”

“Loved our week in the aptly named Little Gem”

John , August 2019

“Perfect cottage for me, my sister and the dog as we explored Lewis for a week. The cottage had everything we needed including a big secure garden. The location was ideal in a lovely quiet village. Liz, the owner, was very welcoming. Great stay and we hope to be back again.”

Susan, August 2019

“The cottage was excellent for my wife and I along with our Irish Setter, Ruby and English Setter Lily. The property was very well maintained and beautifully decorated with all the facilities and equipment we needed for our week long stay. It was close enough to Stornoway for shopping etc and an ideal base for exploring the island. The neighbours were very friendly and we had a nice gift of wine and biscuits when we arrived. Would highly recommend as a place to stay.”

Patrick, July 2019

“It was all a lovely cosy cottage. The bed was really comfortable too with good quality bedding. Really well equipped with all comforts of home in the kitchen too.We really enjoyed our stay and Bear the dog really appreciated the dog treats that were left for him. The humans appreciated the complementary wine and biscuits as well.Made us feel welcome. Thank you”
