“Simply Spectacular”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a truly luxurious rental with modern appliances and everything you need to feel at home. The sauna and cinema contribute to make this charming and romantic cottage a comfortable retreat from the vagaries of weather. Sonas is well situated, close to Tarbert, but still remote in a bucolic setting. Harris is a walkers paradise and its beaches are not to be missed.

“Sublime !!!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Have just returned from a glorious week on the Isle of Harris! Sonas is more than a home from home it is truly luxurious. From the kitchen , which is full of wonderful gadgets, to the sauna and cinema room. Not that we watched many movies, we were too busy enjoying the view from the windows. We had evening entertainment with the otters in the bay hunting for fish and the eagles flying at the back of the cottage - truly wonderful!
After a days walking it was great to return to a lovely relaxing bath or a sauna. Angus and Catriona have thought of everything,
A wonderful relaxing break in a fabulous cottage, would definitely recommend and will almost certainly return!

“For a totally relaxed and de-stressing experience ...... Sonas is the answer”

My husband and I travelled to Harris, landing in Tarbert ready for our 7 day break. We both needed to relax and get rid of the stress that comes naturally with both of our jobs. We always holiday in the Scottish Highlands , so Harris and Lewis was an exciting adventure for us. Sonas cottage was everything (and more) that the website described and so is the Island. Combined, it was exactly the right tonic that we needed. Sonas is fully equipped to pamper all of your needs whilst away from home. It was a lovely feeling knowing that we were returning home each day to such comfort and relaxation (both the bath and the sauna are to die for)!
The people in the village were really friendly , as were everyone that we met across the island. Angus was very helpful and kind during the booking arrangements. We saw eagles, seals, red deer and we watched a lamb being born from the back door.
Don't hesitate with your choice .... Choose Sonas cottage and choose the Isle of Harris. You will not regret a minute of it.

“even better than expected !!”

It was our 1st time to Harris. We found the cottage only 5 minute drive from the ferry at Tarbert.

The cottage itself was fantastic. It was better than expected, and had every gadget & comfort you could wish for. The cinema room was great for the dark evenings,(we went in Jan ) & the cottage was very well equipped. The views from the lounge were like a fresh painting by the hour !!

The bed was so comfy & big we slept like logs !! The attention to detail was superb. The bath was amazing,the large walk in shower,and not to mention the sauna.

It is ideally situated for travelling the island and exploring the south of Harris & the north to Lewis.

We loved the place and were sad to leave. I would truly recommend Sonas,We have stayed in many cottages & this has been by far the best, with attention to detail & quality.

“Absolute Perfection”
Reviewed 28 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Words cannot justify what we experienced at Sonas Cottage. We are still raving about it to anyone who will listen more than 2 months later. If you are the kind of person who loves to get away from the rush of life and immerse yourself in luxury touches and nature - this is the place for you. Angus made the booking process a joy with his immediate replies. As soon as we arrived we spent about 3 seconds deciding we needed to extend our stay.

Every bit of effort that has gone into this cottage has paid off - the floors, the fire, the lounges, the kitchen (with amazing mountain views), the appliances, the (absolutely insane) cinema room, choice of 3 luxurious bathrooms, sauna, the BEST shower you have ever had. As if that wasn't enough Angus leaves fluffy slippers, a Scottish rubber duck (already been sent back to Aus), and chocolates, biscuits and a bottle of Sparkling Elderflower water. He gave us the extra night for a huge discount and was very flexible with payment. The value for money here is ridiculous.

Could not fault this property at all, if we could chose somewhere to live permanently, we would have no problems settling down right there.

6 out of 5 Stars from us. Thank you so much, we literally had to drag ourselves away when we left
