Luckily it’s a long drive, a expensive flight or it comes as past of a super expensive cruise.
Lewis & Harris are our favourite place on earth.
Great Bernera is another glorious part of this fascinating island. It’s an island, off an island, off the mainland.
Our cottage was a home from home. All we needed, well equipped, cosy, welcoming and just by the loch.
It was great value for money shared between two couples.
I would recommend Great Bernera as a place to stay on L & H - very quiet, it has a community centre, a small shop (no petrol station at the moment) and beaches and walks to die for.
Please don’t book the week that we want.
The perfect pet friendly cottage. Its much better than the pictures suggest, very comfortable, clean and it has everything you need

An excellent cottage
A really well appointed cottage that had everything. It was clean and tidy. The kitchen is well stocked with modern utensils which is a sure sign the proprietor takes his responsibilities seriously. The views out the cottage are great with the sight of eagles against the backdrop of the mountains in harris.
I would recommend this cottage to anyone and the owner was very easy to deal with.
We knew Lewis from 1970s summer holidays and we wanted to revisit our favourite spots. We were not disappointed. There are a few new visitor centres, and the best-known beaches are busier, but the place is still very wild and unspoiled.
I can't add much to all the glowing reports - the cottage exceeded expectations. It is well-equiped, and unusually for a holiday cottage, there was a big, uncluttered kitchen with plenty of free cupboard space and a large fridge-freezer. The fenced-in garden was a plus for our little dog. The view is great and there were birds all around and on the lochan. When we were sitting on the deck chairs I kept the binoculars handy.
Normal Lewis weather could be kindly described as misty charm, but our week was warm and sunny, with very few midges and dry ground for walking. The footpath to Bosta beach from the community centre was particularly special. There is a bus sevice to Stornoway. It was nice to be somewhere so remote yet not be totally car-dependent every day. Great if you want to wander off and do your own thing!
