“Romantic, Luxurious and smashed all expectations!!!”

There is very few places on earth where you can feel so remote, but at the same time so comfortable and connected.
Perched on the edge of a rocky point Eagle bay cottage has set the standard for the most idyllic getaways in the world. After travelling to many countries this truly sticks out as the place i will be coming back to.
Apart from the incredible location and award winning house the fine attention to detail and added luxuries are just the cherry on the cake.
David and Kathleen were the perfect hosts with excellent knowledge of the local area and happy to help with any requests. We cannot thank you enough!!

“A luxurious and tranquil getaway”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at the cottage last week (September 2015) and had a most wonderful experience.
The cottage was superb and of an extremely high standard - a luxurious, tranquil, and comfortable place to get away to.
We were very impressed by all the little extras.
The views were incredible.
This was the best place we have ever retreated to.
The island is a beautiful place.
We had a great holiday, and a great experience.

Thank you

“Beautiful & Special”

Eagle Bay Cottage is a beautiful & special place to share with someone special. We spent a week in August, it was luxurious, peaceful and relaxing with the most amazing night skies over the sea loch. Beautiful views from wherever you where in the cottage including the lovely large bath big enough for 2. We thought wow when we first saw it on the web site but the reality was even better. A lovely warm welcome from David with lots of goodies on arrival. Just perfect.

“A dream house in a dream location”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is an absolutely beautiful house, fairly new but fabulously located and provisioned with designer bathroom, sauna, designer kitchen with Neff white goods, Le Crueset pans, Sophie Conran cutlery, etc and facing the every-changing view of the Harris mountains.
The weather is the only unreliable feature for this property and location, but even if it is inclement, just sitting and relaxing in the beautiful surroundings, enjoying a glass of wine or champagne with smoked whisky-flavoured salmon, this place offers peace and solitude away from the bustle and pressures although the internet access keeps you up to date.
Didn't need to use the bicycles available or the fishing rods and centrally located for touring Lewis or nipping over to Harris.

“Stunning accommodation in magnificent location!”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just returned from an amazing week staying at Eagle Bay Cottage. The house is stunningly designed with the highest quality furnishings, equipment, linen and toiletries - not to mention the wonderful welcome pack including a bottle of champagne! The owners were also extremely welcoming, helpful and available at any time during the week.

Eagle Bay Cottage is perfectly located in the beautiful Lochs area not too far from Stornoway or any of the main places of interest - of which there are many across Lewis and Harris - such a fascinating place!

The name also lives up to its reputation with the highlight of our stay on the last day watching golden eagles soaring overhead nearby and otters playing on the rocks just outside - delightful!

One of the best holidays ever and would genuinely love to return!
