We booked this property as a last minute get away a few days before we were due to leave. The photos of the property looked promising, but there were no reviews and as we wanted to take the dog there were very few properties available so off we went.We have stayed in many holiday cottages and this must be one of the best so far.I assume the lack of reviews is because it is new to the holiday rental market. The location is stunning. Quiet and picturesque with views over the loch and a lovely deck/patio area to enjoy the scenary with a glass of wine in the evening.By car the fabulous silver beach of Huisinis is only ten minutes away. The property itself has lots of character. The old post office building is still next to the house, although now unused. The house is really lovely, it is furnished in a tasteful,contemporary style and is well equipped with great modern appliances ( including a Wii ,satellite TV and DVD player etc) comfortable beds, a great shower and a kitchen that has every conceivable piece of equipment that you will need whilst on holiday. There are thoughtful touches all around the house to make your stay special, such as fresh flowers, tea and cake on arrival and lots of maps and guidebooks to help you make the most of your stay. Lena and her family have done a wonderful job with the house and we would love to stay there again.
Tips for a holiday on Harris - make the most of the glorious beaches, especially Luskentyre and the beaches around Seilebost. For lunch try the Temple at Northton or the Skoon Art Cafe in Geocrab. One point to make is that there are very few places to eat out so be prepared to travel to find anywhere to eat or drink and dont expect to find anywhere open on Sunday, just stock up on Saturday!
