“Cosy little place”
Reviewed 18 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Just home from a week exploring Harris and Lewis, using Kelpie Cottage as our base camp. A few minutes from the ferry and you're there, and it felt like home in no time at all. Plenty space for the two of us to eat, sleep and lounge. Well stocked with local info to help plan your adventures. The cottage is equipped so well you could stop indoors all holiday, but obviously with the most amazing scenery in the world on your doorstep (almost literally) you might want to venture out. Harris in particular is beautiful beyond description, and Tarbert is the perfect base. There is no direction you can travel where the views won't knock you sideways. Anyway, I'm meant to be reviewing Kelpie Cottage, not the island. It's a lovely little snug with all mod cons, a very comfy bed and perfectly placed. You will enjoy, believe me.

“A charming unspoiled character cottage in an ideal central position”
Reviewed 14 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We much appreciated the hamper of goodies, thanks, and we love the cottage being just as a cottages should be, adequately well equipped, comfortable and welcoming with all essential mod cons and a very friendly helpful management. Kitchen is good, beds and furniture are good and v. comfy and furnishing are tasteful, TV is good, and there is a beautiful new pine cottage staircase, improvements certainly are ongoing. The loo seat, no problem, we improvised a way to make it stay up when required. Seating and more t.l.c. outside would be nice. Thank you Emma for a very happy stay in your charming cottage. All good wishes, Annabel and David B.
