We had the opportunity to stay here in March 2014, even though we live only 15 miles away. What a beautiful location, right on the loch just as you enter the village of Balallan. The property is very cosy and beautifully decorated. Our little boy loved the spiral staircase. We felt very much at home as they have provided everything you need, including a fully equipped kitchen with all utensils included. There is a petrol station and shop 10 miles away, for any food items that are needed. There is also a restaurant close by.
The views are stunning - we unfortunately chose to go during a force 10 gale, which meant that we couldn't take the boat out or go for a loch side walk but that didn't dampen our spirits as the cottage is just lovely. The view is even more spectacular during a storm, while cosy in front of the fire.
If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful getaway then this holiday let is ideal. We hope to book again as we really enjoyed our stay - thank you :)

“Fantastic get away from it all”

Spent long weekend here after looking for somewhere quiet to get away for the hustle an bustle.
What a hidden gem this is. Fantastic setting on the loch in a nice little hebridean village. Had everything we needed and more. Even small boat for use on the loch if we wished . Enjoyed nights out on the decking watching the sun go down while the trout jumped on the loch right beside us! Totally amazing and great value for money.
Douglas was extremely helpful , and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome.
Can't wait to back again, will spend longer next visit in order to see more of the beautiful western isles.

“Fabulous, relaxing time”

Great holiday cottage, everything you need provided by very helpful owner, nothing was too much trouble for him.
The Cottage has been been finished to a very high standard and has everything needed to make it feel like a 'home from home' (BBQ, CD Player, TV, Books & Games).
It is the ideal place for getting away from it all, walking, fishing, sight seeing and relaxing at the end of the day sitting in the double bench swing looking over the loch. However, the biggest surprise of all has to be in the dining room where you lift a hatch and stored underneath the house is a boat which you can use and spend time on the loch We were also able to use the bbq which is supplied and had a lovely afternoon relaxing on the decking. The cottage feels as if you are miles away from everyone but the town of Stornoway is only about 15 minutes away be car which has some lovely eating places. There is also an open fire in the cottage which we used on our last night there as the weather had become cold and dreich and again we had a relaxing evening, chilling out listening to cd's, reading and chatting. We will definately return in 2014 and have recommended the cottage to friends and would not hesitate to recommend 'Tigh Na Phoirt Deas' to anyone.
