“Great base to explore Lewis and Harris ”
Reviewed 8 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We really liked this accommodation. Very comfortable with beautifully decorated and modern facilities. The hosts were great too and left us some baked goods which kept us going on our long walks. We used Eranca as a base and weren't there an awful lot. There is a construction type factory about 100m away, which does keep the lights on at night, which is a bit of a shame and on our last morning, they were quite noisy. It didn't bother us because we were up and about and you couldn't hear anything indoors. All in all, a great stay!

“Beautiful cottage - perfect stay”

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Eranca Cottage. It's situated in a great location for exploring Lewis and as we were hoping to take some early morning/late evening photos of the Callanish Stones it was perfect. The personal, warm welcome from Aggie and Angus was lovely and the extra touches in the cottage made it feel very special. There was a huge range of delicious homemade cakes, as well as flowers, fruit and essentials like tea, coffee and condiments. I would describe the cottage as being luxurious but also incredibly comfortable. Comfy seating, stunning views across the loch, good shower & bath, and the best mattress ever!

It was our second trip to Lewis so we spent the time going back to some of our favourite places - such as Callanish Stones, Bosta beach and Uig. We also visited some of the places we missed out on last time. Lewis is one of our favourite places to visit and we'll definitely be back soon. Hopefully we'll be back to Eranca too!

“Very special place”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Avid and Angus have created something very special at Eranca. So restful and pretty much everything you could want from a self catering cottage including the most fabulous shower. We'll be back!

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A delightful cottage in a picturesque location. Convenient for many attractions and only 30 mins from the ferry terminal. The cottage has everything that you could need including excellent owners in Angus and Aggie who live next door. The welcome was warm despite us arriving on the last ferry of the day in pitch blackness. Many little things underline the thought and care that they take. The table was set and their was fresh baking on it. There was a picnic basket and a rucksack provided in the cupboard and an alarm clock in the bedroom.

Lewis and Harris are compact enough that everywhere is within relatively easy reach.

We had a great week.
