“Great place to stay! Fantastic cottage for family.”
Reviewed 15 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Great place and location. Stonning views, even could spot harbour porpoises and Dolphins from the living room. Fantastic scenery along the tiny roads and beautiful beaches.
We had really a good time here!

“Amazing location,beautiful house to stay in for a glorious summer break”
Reviewed 30 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The website doesn't do this home justice. It was beautifully set out with everything needed for a relaxing break. Although we did go to visit the fantastic beaches a short distance from the house, we preferred to stay at the cottage. With the balcony/garden area overlooking amazing scenery. We had barbecues & plenty of comfortable outside furniture so there was no need to go anywhere else. We had everything we could possibly want. Although there were only four of us, (this time) the cottage would comfortably accommodate 2 families of 4, with the 2 large lounge areas. Thankfully for us the fires in both were set but only required one night due to the amazing weather we had. A great holiday and one that I will be doing again at Cluer Cottage. Very relaxing, the sky tv was only on for the football once!!
Thank you Fiona & Donald

I am delighted that you had such a lovely stay at Cluer Cottage and saw Harris at its best weather wise. Thank you for your positive review. We may consider having professional photos taken as a few guests have now said our website does not do the house or location justice.
We look forward to your next visit.

“An excellent return visit to this peaceful cottage with superb weather.”
Reviewed 6 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We stayed in this remote and peaceful cottage in 2015 and decided a return visit was due. The week was blessed with superb warm and sunny weather which is always a bonus. Plenty of walking, reading, relaxing and sitting out with an evening drink, watching the lambs misbehaving in front of the house. There's plenty to do around the island including the famous beaches, extensive marked walks and the distillery in Tarbert. Returning to Cluer early enough each evening to enjoy the sun, scenery and solitude just added to the whole experience.

“Great Cottage - fantastic location for an island getaway.”
Reviewed 20 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Cottage is very comfortable with open fires in both living rooms. A very peaceful location with a great view out to sea and, in May entertainment is provided by lamb gangs chasing each other around. We were blessed with great weather in May so made use of the patio and sat out in the comfortable deck chairs. Kitchen has store cupboard essentials and is the best that I have experienced [usually they have the bare minimum of kitchenware and no foodstuffs]
We ate out at lunchtime and cooked in the evening - relaxing with a glass of the local Isle of Harris gin.
This was our second visit to Cluer Cottage and we intend to return. 10/10 holiday cottage.

Hi Lin
Thank you very much for your very positive review of Cluer Cottage. We are delighted you returned and had another pleasant stay. The weather is often at its best in May. I do try to keep basic store cupboard ingredients stocked up for convenience.
I hope you will return to Cluer in the future.
Many thanks

“Superb!”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is the perfect holiday let for two families - and excellent value for money if shared.
The house is in a stunning location with views of Cluer Bay, Skye and the open sea beyond - and wildlife too (saw seal). It's in a lonely position, but that only adds to its charms.
The kitchen is well equipped - thank goodness for owners who realise you need more than 8 plates, cups etc if using a dishwasher, and this was greatly appreciated.
The house was cold on the rainy day we arrived, but Shirley the housekeeper is the best fire-setter I've ever come across and we soon had a roaring fire going.
We splashed out on additional logs, coals and peat (welcome bucket provided) so that we could have fires in both reception rooms throughout the week. It was a real treat to sit and drink a glass of wine in the evening and play old-fashioned games. There are radiators too that eat up electricity, but we only used them on the first day or two (limited consumption as a result).
The balcony is a wonderful place to sit too with a drink too: well equipped with table and chairs. And the area below the house great for pottering along the coast. The long evenings of light add to the atmosphere in summer.
I've mixed feelings about the limited WiFi: unlimited broadband has always been a stipulation for me, but our Swiss friends had found the cottage. It was good that the children/young adults were forced to do other things: play board games/Frisbee outside etc, but I was very aware of the limitations over our time.
I LOVED the two reception rooms: spacious kitchen/dining/living area that's great for communal living, and the very cosy, but roomy lounge with its big window with superb views over the sea, with window seat.
Be aware of the rough lane - you need to take it at the right angle and speed (but not too much so that the car skids on the gravel. We had to bring our car to the garage because of stones that had got caught in the wheel/brake.
And be aware of youngsters who don't close gates when told to (important with regards the sheep). Sorry, Fiona.
The location of the house couldn't be better for Harris - wildlife on the east coast (sea mammals) and the weird 'moonscape' and pools of water lilies in summer - with some of the best beaches around, on Lewis and Harris - all within a short car journey away.
Regardless of small issues, I couldn't recommend this place more - and will do to family and friends.
This is a magical place.

Thank you for taking the time to write such an extensive and positive review for Cluer Cottage.
We realise the unlimited broadband is a problem. Unfortunately at the moment there is not a choice of providers in the Cluer area and our provider does not offer an unlimited package. Many of the holiday lets in Harris are changing over to a Pay as you Go method and we are considering this. I will ask for feedback on this with other guests.
Yes its unfortunate that closing gates is a basic countryside rule as leaving gates open can affect the movement of 3 individual crofters livestock for various reasons. We are working hard to create a garden at Cluer Cottage and have politely asked guests to keep gates closed and we have signs on all 3 gates as a reminder as sheep will eat absolutely everything if they get in!
We are waiting for a contractor to build up the sides of the road near the bottom gate so there should be an improvement soon.
We are so happy you share our opinion of the magical setting of Cluer Cottage and hope you will revisit in the future.
Many thanks Fiona and Donald
