“Very special place”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Avid and Angus have created something very special at Eranca. So restful and pretty much everything you could want from a self catering cottage including the most fabulous shower. We'll be back!

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A delightful cottage in a picturesque location. Convenient for many attractions and only 30 mins from the ferry terminal. The cottage has everything that you could need including excellent owners in Angus and Aggie who live next door. The welcome was warm despite us arriving on the last ferry of the day in pitch blackness. Many little things underline the thought and care that they take. The table was set and their was fresh baking on it. There was a picnic basket and a rucksack provided in the cupboard and an alarm clock in the bedroom.

Lewis and Harris are compact enough that everywhere is within relatively easy reach.

We had a great week.

This is the best holiday cottage we have ever had and there have been lots! Aggie and Angus are delightful hosts , very welcoming. The cottage has everything, a splendid bathroom with double shower and a jacuzzi bath, a superbly equipped kitchen and a very comfortable lounge area with a plasma television. The wifi is excellent and works more quickly than at home. The views are amazing and despite the unseasonal wind we have had today the views change so dramatically that it is a paradise for a photographer. There are so many personal, individual touches here from Aggie that it is difficult to be precise from cloth table napkins (in a holiday cottage!) to flowers and a bowl of fruit, coffee, tea, all manner of bits and pieces it is outstanding.

“Eranca Cottage - luxury self catering in a great location at it's very best.”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a great pleasure it was for us to spend a week at Eranca Cottage, situated on the edge of a loch, on the Isle of Lewis from 14th May 2016.

After a long journey we couldn't have asked for a better welcome from cottage owners Aggie and Angus. The home made cakes waiting for us on arrival were just one of the very thoughtful and special little touches that helped to make our stay so comfortable. The touches of luxury, the modern and stylish decor, and the great location are what makes Eranca Cottage a great place to stay when visiting the Outer Hebrides.

The lounge with it's huge plasma sky tv and comfortable sofa and chairs was so relaxing after long days of sightseeing on Lewis and Harris. The well equipped kitchen area has everything you need for a fully self catering holiday. The bed has the most comfortable mattress to ensure a good nights sleep, and the bathroom is just gorgeous with it's jacuzzi bath and power shower, again with special little touches like spa products and bathrobes. The cottage has wi-fi access and this is another great bonus.

It was wonderful to meet Aggie and Angus and family who are so warm and friendly and helpful with information about the area. We loved our holiday so much and can't wait to return to Eranca next year.

So, if you're looking for a comfortable luxury self catering cottage, with wonderful special touches, in a great location with lovely owners, then Eranca Cottage is a great choice.

“More than what I hoped for -”

I took a lot of time to research what would work best for me on Lewis and Eranca Cottage met all requirements and more. I traveled alone and used public transportation the whole week I was there and it was just great. The cottage itself was modern, clean as a whistle, well equipped and the "sky" television was huge and perfect despite the 80 mph winds mother nature threw at the cottage. I loved my time there and had the privacy I wanted as well as Agnes and Angus right there if I needed anything - such a bonus that they are are a local family. It was my third trip to Lewis from Cape Cod and I hope I can be there again - Thank you so much Agnes and Angus.

Everything has been wonderful at our stay at Eranca. There are so many things to explore at Lewis and Harris. To get home to such a beautiful place after these trips was amazing. Angus and Aggie, the owners, really cared about our well-being!
