“Even better than hoped for; home from home plus a view”

It had everything you needed to make it a perfect stay. A lovely quiet location with superb views of the loch. A joy to be in the kitchen with those views. Furnished with all excellent quality and great taste.

“Flawless - not a fault to be found!”

Seaside Cottage is quite simply perfect. The situation is breath-taking, with fantastic views of the sea and the mountains; and a local great northern diver to watch over breakfast. The cottage itself, honestly, is just wonderful. Nothing has been omitted: the crockery is charming and so is the tea cosy (ok, it's a small thing, but trust me, it IS!), the bathroom is the height of luxury, the kitchen is amazingly well-equipped (waking up to the smell of fresh bread thanks to the breadmaker is a first for a holiday cottage for us)...I could go on, but, in a nutshell, go there! You will love it. The island of Harris too is unbelievably beautiful, whatever the weather (and we had a bit of almost everything). The only disappointment was that it didn't snow, because then we might have got stuck there - bliss!
We want to go back: so I must be mad telling you all about it, but it isn't fair to the lovely owner (who even so kindly posted in something we'd left behind) not to!

“lovely cottage”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Very well equipped and extremely comfortable. The under floor heating in the bathroom is an extra bonus. We have stayed in a lot of cottages around the highlands and islands and this is definately one of the best . I would happily return and from the guest book it looks as if there are a lot of people who do exactly that.

Amazing Cottage with absolutely everything you could possibly need and even things you hadn't thought you would need! Everything is immaculate and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the highland stoneware crockery is just beautiful!
The view from the kitchen window is the best you will ever find and if you do nothing else all week you can sit and watch the world go by. The local fisherman brought us Lobster and Mackrel !

Great base for exploring, saw Golden Eagles from the Eagle hide and Orcas from Northton Beach.

Really friendly hosts and easy booking process. Accommodated our 2 yr old in a travel cot.

Anyone heading here, you are very lucky indeed!
