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.

Fabulous
Perfect getaway in a quiet location with amazing beaches on your doorstep. The cottage was fabulous with every home comfort available. The views from the cottage were incredible! We received a lovely welcome pack. The cottage was spotless, the Wi-Fi great.

Peace perfect peace.....
The photos do neither the property nor the location justice. Truly wonderful stay, comfortable warm and very clean. This is exactly what was needed, don't expect a pub, shops etc but do expect heavenly peacefulness. One small beach below the property and one a short walk away. Very well equipped shop about 3-4 miles away Uig Community Shop they will deliver. Uig Sands restaurant wonderful, lovely people waiting on tables, amazing sunsets from there too!! just a little further on from shop and a wonderful beach below the restaurant. Really grounded us for the big push on up to Orkney and Shetland. Tod really helpful lovely quiet host. Thank you Tod. Feel very privileged to have stayed there.

What a view!
Spent a week here with some fantastic weather in August. Great cottage for a young family of four. Everything we needed for a relaxing time. Stunning view and easy access to the beaches. Tod was an excellent host. The surrounding area is stunning. Great for beach time, fishing and kayaking. Would love to go back next year...

Absolute tranquility
This is the second year in a row we have stayed at Valtos Cottage, and it is nothing short of absolutely superb. It is beyond doubt our favorite location on the Isle of Lewis, and somewhere we definitely hope to return again in the future. The views of Valtos and Kneep beaches are spectacular, and it is so very easy to spend the day relaxing and simply watching the weather change across the sky. We walked to the beaches every day, and across the hill to Reef beach for long walks in the summer evenings, exploring the area as the tide went out. Always something different to find! The cottage is beautifully appointed, with everything one could require for a break. The welcome back was also a lovely touch. The showers in both bathrooms have wonderful pressure, the beds assure a sound night’s sleep and the deck outside is fantastic to sit and enjoy a morning coffee. Tod and Heather are gracious hosts, and we have had the chance to meet with Tod upon both of our visits. He has many stories of the area, and it was very interesting to learn more about the history and the smaller isles dotted around the are. The cottage is always books up months in advance over the summer period, and we were lucky there was availability for us. So, make sure to contact Tod and Heather quickly if you don’t want to miss out. Valtos is definitely a place of calm, serenity and relaxation. The perfect place to take pause, recharge and rejuvenate.

Unbeatable location and more !
This is the second time we have stayed at Valtos cottage. Valtos in Uig in our opinion is the most beautiful location on the island and cannot be beaten. The cottage is ideally placed with views over two of the many beaches in the area. We were able to stroll down to the beach without having to get the car out. A very relaxing place to stay whatever the weather. Sit out on the terrace overlooking for view for breakfast, should the weather change, how cosy to be indoors, all the time with that amazing view and the changing colours of the landscape. Two spacious bedrooms, one ensuite. Super bathroom with sauna. All mod cons, in fact everything you would need for an unforgettable time. The owners have presented the cottage in immaculate condition and provide a 'welcome pack' of goodies on arrival. The compact kitchen has everything needed for self catering. Nearest 'shop' is approx 5 miles away. Note of caution, if you arrive in Stornoway on a Sunday the supermarkets ( Co op and Tesco) will be closed and it is difficult to get provisions. But... You can pre order from the local shop and your goods will be awaiting your arrival ! ) Would not hesitate to recommend !

Fantastic cottage with stunning views
5* luxurious cottage with everything you could ask for and more such as sauna and steam room. The views are absolutely stunning and change throughout the day as the sun moves round until finally at sunset you get the clear blue waters of the loch against hills lit by the setting sun. What makes it even more special is the welcome from the owners, Tod and Heather who really seem to go the extra mile to make you welcome and personally meet you at the cottage. Couldn't ask for a better location if you want to go exploring as it is centrally located making it easy to get to both North Lewis and South Harris as well as a short trip into Stornoway.

About the neighbourhood
Our stunning landscapes and breathtaking beachscapes have escaped the destructive clutch of mankind; the vast and awesome power of nature surrounds us in our day to day lives with a great, humbling wilderness of beaches, lochs, moors and mountains. We bask in days of serene, still sunshine with the air calm, the sand sparkling and the sea Caribbean turquoise clear; and we stand resilient against the wildest and most dramatic of Atlantic storms, with sea spray frothing over the highest cliffs, steely storm grey waves crashing on battered beaches, and scarce trees blowing horizontally in the wind. The more adventurous among us make use of the world class facilities that nature has provided us on our doorstep for sailing, kite surfing, fast boating, diving, walking, climbing, cycling, kayaking, surfing... Where else in the world are all these opportunities literally on your doorstep at the end of your working day?
