Stayed at this accommodation for a first visit to the Outer Hebrides and this has excellent facilities in the property with all the amenities of Stornoway close by. Making this an excellent choice and great base for seeing the abundant nature, history and beaches that Lewis and Harris has to offer. Highly recommended.

Management response:

Thanks for taking the time to review An Airigh. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and would love to host you again.

Clean, well maintained and in a good neighbourhood. All mod cons included (I could even access my netflix account on the TV which is internet enabled). Ken and Isobel are very welcoming hosts, kind and thoughtful and made our stay very pleasant indeed. I reckon it's one of the best places to stay in the outer hebredies

Management response:

Thanks for taking the time to review the cottage and finding the property lived up to your expectations. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to hosting you again soon

Arrived around 1.30 to a lovely welcome from Kenneth and his wife Isobel. The 'cottage' was superb and everything that we needed was on hand. After an exchange and update from our hosts we were left to our own devices which was great as both Kenneth and his wife Isobel had thought of everything so no need to bother them...

Management response:

We are delighted you enjoyed your time with us and thanks for taking the time to review An Airigh. You obviously had a good experience on your first trip to Lewis and we look forward to hosting you again soon.

About the neighbourhood
Lewis being the largest island of the Outer Hebrides has a rich history and culture dating back from the Norse invasions to strong Gaelic traditions that are still observed to this day.

The cottage is well placed for guests with a variety of pursuits in mind, whether into hillwalking, fishing or bird watching, fun packed watersports or just relaxing on a sandy beach.
