“Math dha riribh!”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

As the title says Taigh Geal is an excellent place to stay. The house is most comfortable with a great bed and lovely linen. It is in a super location as is very close to Stornoway and all its amenities yet it is in a very rural situation. The views from the windows are lovely and the many windows make the house light and airy. It really has the best of both worlds. It is convenient for exploring all parts of the island. The owner has compiled an extensive guest information file which is really helpful with lots of information to enhance any visit. There is also an extensive library in the house should the weather prove to be inclement at any time. The owners Fiona and Finlay are very welcoming and quietly attentive to any needs that might arise. I would not hesitate to recommend this comfortable clean house.

“Cosy little home”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed for 7 nights at Taigh Geal. The house is extremely well equipped. There was everything you could possibly need and it was very clean. The decor is really nice and modern. We had a great time and definitely would recommend to others. Also the owners Fiona & Finlay kept in touch before, during and after if you need them. We will be definitely be coming back again.

“Luxury all the way!”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a fantastic find. Quality all the way from the greeting and some starter items to the farewell. This is a magnificently appointed croft conversion added to owners own accommodation. Quality furnishings, finishes, linen and crockery throughout. Ample Denby crockery and glasses, cutlery etc . Well appointed kitchen with cooker, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine etc. Centrally located on the outskirts of Stornoway but conveniently located for ferry, supermarkets etc. Good location from which to explore Lewis's many attractions.
