Ideal location for exploring both Lewis and Harris. Extremely comfortable accomodation, with every amenity that you would need. Host very welcoming, with some lovely touches i.e. fresh flowers, homemade pancakes, etc. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would highly recommend.
We stayed a long weekend in this lovely house while we were up for a family wedding. Taigh Granaidh was so cosy and comfortable that we wished we'd been able to spend more time there. Caroline and Kenny are lovely and very welcoming. The house is extremely well-equipped, well heated and has lovely views. Highly recommend it as a base for exploring this wonderful island.
we stayed for 1 week in the lovely cottage everything as described met kenny a couple of times very friendly and we love the cute retired dog i forget the name had a great time great cottage stay here if you want to visit the island
Second year staying at Taigh Graiaidh when on holiday in Lewis. It's a wonderful, well-equipped cottage with everything you need for a real home from home. The views from the living-room window over Loch Roag are stunning (as are the sunsets) and the cottage is ideally placed to explore this beautiful island. Caroline and Kenny are superb hosts - Caroline's welcome pack has everything the hungry traveller needs on arrival (including a much appreciated bottle of wine) and Kenny is happy to demonstrate his Harris Tweed weaving expertise in the loom shed next to the cottage. Coupled with fresh eggs from the free range chickens and visits from Kenny and Caroline's lovely collies Dot and Sheila, make for a pretty perfect holiday.
Taigh Granaigh is probably the best holiday cottage we've stayed in. It's located in an absolutely stunning setting with views of the ocean and mountains. It has a beautiful garden with dog save fencing. Next door to the cottage is Kenny's Harris Tweed weaving workshop (can't hear a thing of it in the cottage or garden), which was absolutely fascinating when he showed it to us. Also next door are free roaming chicken who produce very tasty eggs.
The kitchen is exceedingly well equipped with lots of space for the whole family. There are two full,spacious bathrooms, upstairs with a bathtub, downstairs with a shower and a downstairs cloakroom. A comfortable living room and three good sized bedrooms, two doubles and a twin with ample wardrobe space.
What else could I say? Wi-Fi worked fine, stunning beaches and Stornoway in easy driving distance, best welcome package we've had including homemade pancakes and rhubarb marmalade.
Their 2017 TripAdvisor award for excellence is well deserved seeing as both Caroline and Kenny are walking the extra mile to make you feel welcome and comfortable.
