I just have to echo what previous guests have said. The house is fantastic - immaculate, extremely well-equipped and the owner left some very thoughtful gifts (bucket and spade was particularly loved by my wee boy).
The beds are really comfy and it was a very peaceful and calm retreat after a day of exploring the island.
There is plenty of literature provided to feed your curiosity of what to do in Lewis and if the weather does turn sour, board games to amuse.
The wildlife surrounds the house - birds, bunnies, nosy sheep and even a gang of stags made an appearance.
It is beautifully situated for exploring the many delights of south-west Lewis. The house has been carefully refurbished, with an emphasis on taste and quality. The needs of holidaymakers have been fully considered and catered for. An effective central heating system ensures that the wood burner is merely an optional extra. The shower is very good as are the beds upstairs, especially the double. The dining/kitchen is similarly well equipped. There is a general feeling of spaciousness throughout the property. With the prompt and helpful responses by Maureen to our questions beforehand and the items left for us on our arrival, we felt very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely area.
Lovely well equipped cottage in beautiful surroundings. Great beaches nearby and opportunity for great walking.
A very well equipped and comfortable house in the wonderful area of Uig. The house was very warm when we arrived and a nice welcome gift to greet us. Beautifully decorated with nice touches of Harris tweed everywhere. Very comfortable beds and good shower. Lovely patio to drink afternoon tea on after our long walks. Excellent information about the area and suggestions for walks.
We were staying in 5 Aird for 4 nights. There is 3 bedrooms, one single, a twin and a double. The kitchen is very large, including a washing machine and all other things you need. The living room is very cosy and offers a TV and DVD player, as well as a fire place. The house was very clean and we were welcomed with some welcome gifts, which was really nice. When the weather is fine you can relax outside on the patio! 5 Aird is situated in a very small village on the west coast of Lewis, in a stunning area as there is many hills and mountains, unlike the other parts of Lewis, which are very flat. There is some nice hiking oppurtunities starting directly from the house. Uig Sands is also very close to Aird, which is a beautiful beach to visit. It takes roughly 50 minutes from Stornoway to reach by car, around 35 minutes to the magnificent standing stones of Callanish. We had a wonderful time and will surely return! Cheers!
Perfectly peaceful and picturesque little village in Lewis. This house is a good base to have a chilled day in or to explore the isles of Harris and Lewis. The house was clean, well equipped with tastefull decor. Lots of extras to make our stay very pleasurable and a few thoughtful gifts left too. The whole island is well worth exploring as it has many breathtakingly beautiful beaches that are as good as the Caribbean, historical sites and peace and quiet. Maureen the owner replies promptly and was very helpful with information for the house and island, thanks.
