“Excellent self-catering holiday accommodation; very well appointed.”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

"An Acail" meaning "Tranquility" in the local native language, Gaelic, lived up to its name in my opinion. It is a private holiday accommodation in a semi-rural location, with sheep grazing quietly in the adjacent field, yet within easy distance of the lovely town of Stornoway.
The owners are to be commended for being warm and welcoming hosts and for providing comfortable, luxury accommodation for their guests. Thank you sincerely for a most memorable experience.

“Fantastic Accommodation on an island of friendly people”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This accommodation was booked last minute for a business trip. The accommodation was great, in a good location for our purpose and well laid out. The Wi-Fi signal was a bit iffy at times (particularly as required for business) but when you are on holiday then who needs Wi-Fi constantly anyway? - get out and see this lovely island!

Thanks for the feedback. So glad you liked the cottage. Really sorry about the Wi-fi, we have hopefully sorted that out with the providers (we had been having a few issues). Hope you come again, maybe for a holiday.

Fantastic accomodation, close to town and all the beaches on the east coast, great base for touring the island. The propery might not look much from outside, but inside it is fantastic. From the beds, en suites and fabulous spa bath with piped in digital radio to bathroom! Every detail has been thought out. No need to pack picnic bag, beach towels. Kitchen fully equipped and welcome pack a nice surprise.
The drying room is fantastic for sorting out you beach gear.
