Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Comfortable house and amazing setting
Corran is a very comfortable house set in a beautiful position, with easy access to the sand dunes and beach. We were so fortunate to have wonderful warm sunny weather which meant we could walk down and enjoy the beach during the day and in the evening. The house has everything you need and been decorated to a high standard. Peter was very quick to respond to any questions prior to coming and during our stay. It was a memorable holiday and we hope to come back.

Fabulous!
Corran is an amazing place to stay, a fabulous location with stunning views across Luskentyre Beach. The cottage itself is incredibly comfortable and the owners have put a lot of thought and effort into the comfort and amenities. You couldn't find a better location for a stay on Harris and it's a great place to explore both Harris and Lewis. Highly recommended!

Amazing part of the country
Just had an amazing holiday at Corran, not only the best views possible but also the house itself was outstanding. So clean and comfortable but also equipped to the best standard of any holiday home we have stayed in, everything you could think of was provided and such good quality. The information received on the app gave us details of everything we needed to make our holiday perfect, again something we have not experienced before. Not only all that but we left a parcel behind which the owners posted on to us and then we also had the misfortune to loose some of our stuff from the roofbox which had opened when we were travelling back to the ferry. Not only did Ian keep in touch by phone and text but he also advised us to post a message onto the Harris facebook page and we received messages from some of the Luskentyre community who had seen our things and also went back out to see if they were still there. We are indebted to them all and grateful to such a friendly community.

Perfect Hebridean holiday
Everything about this house was perfect. It was so well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was so warm and cosy - we loved the wood burning stove. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept so well. And then there was the location which was just idyllic. The view was stunning. We will definitely be back!

Excellent cottage, very well equipped with superb sea views and the UKs best beach just minutes away
The review title says it all! Superb views over Luskentyre Bay. The inside of the cottage is kitted out to a very high standard and is exceptionally comfortable. The owners provide all the advice and tips you could hope for.

Unbelievably beautiful part of the world
We spent a glorious family week at Luskentyre in Corran, an exceptionally clean, comfy and cosy home with the best views in the world! Peter and Gillian have thought of everything, and were supremely helpful ahead of our visit, with tips on all sorts, including advice on charging our electric car nearby (your best bet is the fast charger on the pier at Tarbert!) The beach, and the whole surrounding area, is just impossibly beautiful, whatever the weather, and we quite often got all of the weather in just one hour. This is the perfect location for stargazing on clear nights or (if you’re lucky) to see the Aurora. Truly stunning! We also had great days out to Calanais, Scalpay and Huisnis, as well as buying sticky machair buns in Northton and climbing Ceapabhal. Yum! The house had plenty of room for our family of five, and we return relaxed and refreshed and bowled over by the beauty of the Isle of Harris. It has a sort of glow which I’ve never experienced anywhere else in the world! Our only extra wishes would have been bigger bath towels, a comfier master bed and no single use plastic coffee/hot choc pods, especially given the very limited local recycling facilities. We’d love to come back again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful holiday home with us.

Hello Eve, thanks for taking the time for your lovely review. We’d love to have you back any time. We are delighted you had a great holiday. Thanks for your helpful suggestions - we know some folk find the mattress quite firm and we plan to replace it next year. We do have podback recycling bags in the cottage now for the Tassimo pods. Best wishes Peter and Gillian.

Wonderful experience
I am torn as I write this as really I want to keep Corran a secret. However, we have just returned from the most wonderful week there. The house is beautiful with everything you could ever need. The owners are really helpful with such useful information and recommendations shared via a guide sent in advance. The location is stunning. I will never forget the view of Luskentyre Bay we woke up to every day. To top it all, the sun shone on all but the last day. I wouldn’t hesitate to book Corran again.

Perfect week at Corran
A visit to Harris and the sands at Luskentyre have been on my "to list" for a long time. The house was immaculately clean, very well equipped with everything you might need and a stones throw away from the most iconic beach in the UK. We were blessed with sunshine and light winds for most of our week making for an unforgettable holiday spent staying in a fantastic property. Would we try to book this house again? Absolutely without question. Doug Forbes

A perfect stay
Fantastic location overlooking Luskentyre sands, with stunning views in every direction. The house itself is immaculately presented, spacious and warm, with great attention to detail (lovely local art) and superbly equipped with everything you need for a perfect holiday. Peter was helpful and responsive throughout, even going to the trouble of checking we were sorted after ferry cancellations (above and beyond)! And the information pack provided is useful and comprehensive. One of the best holiday houses we have stayed in and wouldn’t hesitate to stay again or to recommend Thankyou!
