“Very comfortable cottage”

We loved staying at Eranca. The owners are extremely welcoming and helpful. The cottage is new and modern, very beautifully decorated with very modern appliances. The bathroom is out of this world. Eranca is parfectly situated to explore Lewis, close to the historical sites and beautiful beaches. We are very happy with our choice and were very sad to leave.

“The best place I have ever stayed”

Eranca was simply the best holiday rental I have ever used. The standard of the furnishings and fixtures is outstanding and the cleanliness of the cottage when we arrived was very impressive. The cottage has spectacular views that are constantly changing with the light and weather conditions and the whole of Harris and Lewis is an easy drive away. My wife and I loved walking in the day to come home and chill out in front of the massive TV on the comfy sofa. Aggie and Angus dropped in to see us on our last night there having been on their own holiday and were very friendly and welcoming. I will definitely be returning.

“Great holiday in a fantastic part of Scotland.”

Eranca is a brilliant holiday cottage with everything you could ask for, and so much more.
The owners, Angus and Aggie are excellent hosts. The welcome is genuine and they really could not do more for you.
Everything is of the best standard and so much thought has gone into what is needed. All cleaning materials., toiletries tea, coffee, fresh flowers, medical kit...... The list goes on and on.
Lewis and Harris have some of the best beaches in the world and we were lucky enough to see them at their best, in glorious sunshine. Luskentyre is truly breathtaking.
This is a paradise for game and sea anglers and Angus was only to pleased to arrange some fishing and suggest places to try.
We will be back to this heaven on earth, very soon.

“Lovely cottage, lovely owners”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Warm and friendly welcome from Aggie and Angus (those lovely cakes!), beautifully fitted cottage (fantastic shower), comfortable bed and a location a few yards from Loch Roag.

This is an excellent location from which to visit all that Lewis and Harris have to offer. We can particularly recommend the iron age cottage at Bosta on Great Bernera - we experienced a peat fire in the middle of the room and a marvellous commentary from the lady there.

Beaches to die for. The west coast of Harris is well known for its beaches - not just Luskentyre but the others too. However Lewis has its fair share of white sands and turquoise seas. Just north is the surfing beach of Dalmore and to the west is the beautiful Uig peninsula with the huge Uig sands and more lovely beaches at Valtos. And we saw an eagle from the car on the remote road south of Uig.

There's lots more to see - the broch just up the road at Carloway and the black house village and the Arnol black house (occupied until 1966). And don't miss the Butt of Lewis lighthouse surrounded by sea cliffs and waves and wind.

And we enjoyed an evening meal at the friendly Loch Roag guesthouse.

It was a great week.

“Eranca was the highlight of my honeymoon”

Angus and Aggie were amazing hosts...from the personalized champagne flutes to the amazing selection of cakes left for us on arrival, we felt so welcomed. The cottage was quiet, the appliances were top of the line, the whirlpool tub was incredible, the bed was cozy...it was perfect. It is central to most of the tourist attractions on Lewis (very short drives away from the standing stones, the Carloway Broch, and the blackhouses), and only an hour away from the white sand beaches of Harris...but really, we also just enjoyed lounging at the cottage after we'd seen all the sights!!!
