The photographs on the website are great and sometimes this can set you up for disappointment but not with Abhainn cottage. The owners attention to detail is wonderful, everything from the pictures on the wall to the quality of bed linen let you know this is a special place to stay. It really is a luxurious home, and that’s how you feel when your there, at home. The owner had a warm welcome (and some homemade cakes) waiting for us, after a long journey it was just what we needed. The cottage is in a great location for exploring, it’s close to a lot of the visitor attractions, and the beaches on the Hebrides have to be seen to be believed. I love the Hebrides and cannot recommend this cottage highly enough as a base to explore and enjoy what the islands have to offer. I'll be back at the cottage later in the year what more recommendation would you need.

“The Perfect Holiday House”

Abhainn's location - roughly equidistant from the town of Stornoway and the golden beaches of Uig - was perfect for me, as it allowed quick access to those two locations. The cottage is immaculate, containing everything one could want in a home away from home. I enjoyed the power shower and the sauna at night after days wandering the wilderness with my camera. Callanish standing stones are just over a mile away: another selling point of Abhainn. The cottage has a reliable wi-fi connection, so it's possible to keep in contact with the outside world while enjoying time far away from it. For me, one thing more than any other provides testament to the cottage's comfort: I didn't want to leave.
