My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Manish Cottage. The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is so tranquil and located in a beautiful setting. Although the weather was mixed we managed to do a great deal of walking on the trails. To sum our holiday up in one word PERFECT. Thank you Johan.

Management response:

This is a lovely review of Manish and of Harris and we thank you for it. We are so happy your holiday with us was enjoyable. Hope to welcome you back. Kind Regards Johan

Situated about 15 minutes from Tarbert, the Cottage is a great base from which the island can be explored. Be aware, the single track roads will be a challenge for some, but the views you will encounter are breathtaking! The Cottage is small but perfect for 2 people and their pets. The owner has equipped the property to ensure all...

About the neighbourhood
Western Isles Manish. Area is called the Bays with single track roads. Each village is set round a small inlet of water. Very close to the shoreline. The roads do have passing places very few parts double track. Cottage off the Main road may seem out of the way for some. Skoon Art Cafe in the village just before so 5mins in the car. (Great Home made Chocolate Brownies.) New Talla-Na- Mara centre on the West Side 25mins away for coffee meals and local Crafts. Handmade Harris Craft Markets held in Tarbert 25mins away. Harbour Bistro in Scalpay is 28mins away it serves award standard fish dishes. If you are a keen photographer lots of wildlife in the bays otters, seals and seabirds. Great area for walking and getting off the beaten track.
