“Beautiful house, wonderful views lovely walks on the beaches watching the Golden Eagle - perfect!”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at Airebroc as a large family group for a week in March. The house is perched on the side of the hill that slopes down to Uig Beach. It is the most beautiful, restful and inspiring of places. The views over the bay from the sun-room are magical and with Lewis's ever changing weather they are different every time you look out. The house is perfectly positioned for long walks on the beaches, round the coast and across the moors. It is well equipped with everything you could want, and full of charm and character. It is impossible to say anything negative about the place. A real highlight was the Golden Eagle that appears to live somewhere up in the moors behind the house we saw him most days - an awe inspiring bird. All in all the perfect base for a wonderful island holiday. I can't recommend it highly enough!

“Dream stay”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Airebroc is the most beautiful place to stay. One side of the house looks over the bay so you can watch the tides sweeping in and out and the clouds come and go over the mountains. The other has views out across to sea over the hillside. The house is gorgeously decorated, with a light airy feel, and still wonderfully cosy. The kitchen is generous and homely, the living room perfect for curling up in with a fire going, the (many!) beds large and comfy, and we loved the sunroom for coffee and games or reading in the morning- or just gazing out dreamily at the view! From the house it is only a short scramble to the loveliest of beaches. We were warmly welcomed with local veg and wine on arrival, and had the kindest communication with the hosts.

Everything about this stay delighted us.

“One of our best holidays ever!”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This lovely house, about 40 minutes from the main Tarbert/Stornaway road, provided the perfect base for our exploration of this part of the island. The area is stunning - albeit our view is probably a little biased as we also had pretty good weather. On arrival we found freshly picked flowers and salad ingredients waiting for us which was a lovely touch. The house is well equipped, and well furnished - it is a home with character rather than a sterile impersonal holiday let, and to us it felt welcoming and comfortable, and we had good chats with the neighbours!. The three double beds were all good, but the one of the three singles is really only suitable for children. We did miss our superking bed, and needed to use one of the front rooms as a twin. Having four toilets in the house is a real treat when you have adult groups. The sun room is such a bonus on grey/wet days - there is always something to watch as the wind/water/clouds/birds move about.
The house notes provided were comprehensive, and we made a point of using the Community Shop, which is well equipped,with fresh meat and veg and store cupboard ingredients. We also loved the Passion Cake at the local community centre/museum, and the chance to talk to local people there. Needless to say the referendum always featured. There are useful tips about walks etc at the house - and purchasing an Ordnance Survey map of the area is a must, as is a camera and a good pair of binoculars.
Communication with the owners is good, and the one small problem we did have was swiftly remedied.

“Superb House in Unrivalled Location”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Airebroc is a stunning property overlooking Uig Sands and the Uig Hills. At night the stars are incredible. By day all you can hear is bird song and Raven calls. The property is really spacious. The sun room is exceptional. You can spend all day indoors if you really wanted! All the bedrooms are great - one double, one single, and two double + single. I highly recommend this house to everyone.

“Best Location on the Isle of Lewis”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This house is perfect inside and wonderfully located. Uig Sands are as beautiful as anywhere else on Lewis, and we spent hours on the Sands or sitting in the sun room watching the clouds move over the mountains.
The owners were really helpful and the house is as well equipped as you would be at a home, especially in the kitchen.
