We had a wonderful time in Sundown cottage. It is so nicely decorated we felt like home. The owner welcomed us at night with the fire and candles lighted, fresh flowers in the rooms.... it was quiet and peaceful with a great sight from the living room. Only 15 mn from Stornoway, surrounded by sheeps, a great place to visit...
