“Luxury accommodation in a beautiful place”

Fantastic accommodation with incredible hospitality from the owners in a working crofting area.
Perfect location to explore Lewis and Harris. The local beach is within walking distance and is exceptional - taking the longer walk around the coast is recommended though.
Great views from the cottage with every possible requirement catered for.
Stay for 2 weeks, 1 week is not enough.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Excellent cottage to stay in & use as a base for travelling. Very comfortable and very well kitted out including the out house to dry your wet gear. Well thought out accommodation with a great combination of the original stone barn and contemporary design in the main living area. Hosts were very kind and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Lots of activities/equipment for the children to play with too especially on the fabulous near by beach.

“Perfect...absolutely perfect.”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We spent a short week here in May and it was absolutely perfect. This cottage has everything you could possibly want, whether you want to stay in and watch the rain and clouds or whether you want to head out for days of exploring. It is totally comfortable with every amenity (including a very nice thermos for tea on the road), the peat and log fire every evening is delightful, the view is wonderful...the only sounds are the wind and (in May, at least) the occasional bleating of the lambs from the croft. Our hostess Valerie is charming, efficiently organized, and a great baker! Plus which the place was immaculate! Loved it in every way...

“Great family accommodation and hospitality on Lewis”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Val and Calum's hospitality and attentiveness were second to none, including delicious complimentary food and drink.
The property itself was terrific - attention to detail to ensure all home comforts and many many extras were thoughtfully included, and helped make our stay even more enjoyable. The outdoor equipment and games were much appreciated and well used.
Great location and open, panoramic views across crofting land and towards the sea.
Thanks for a lovely holiday!

“Luxurious self contained with the comforts of home”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My wife and I spent a week at The Stone House and found the accommodation and service provided buy the owners to be of the highest standard.

From the meet, greet and follow me to the house, to the provisioning , to the supply of local lamb and black pudding and dropping in every few days to check that all was "Gud", exceeded our expectations .

The location, the view, the excellent fit out, the unlimited peat , the wee dram on the side table made for a very enjoyable stay ..not to mention the bathrooms, bedrooms . heating

We loved it ..its worth 5 stars at least.

Liked best: The provisioning and the layout of house including kitchjen was excellent.
Liked least: the horizontal rain but it allowed me to become expert at the peat fire on a day or two.
