“great cost/performance ratio”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

we stayed in Manish Cottage for one night before we had to catch the early ferry from Tarbert to Uig. The cost/performance ratio of this cottage is great. It is not too easy to find - but the description of the landlord was very helpful. it is not a luxury cottage - but you`ll find there everything you need. It would be a good improvement if the landlord would switch on heaters on teh ay of arrival. Especially if you travel in the colder months, the cottage was quite cold and a little bit moisty when we checked in late afternoon!

“Nice cottage with great view”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We arrived at Tarbert ferry at around 8 pm so it was dark and we had to drive carefully along the bended one way road (however there are passing places all through the road). We saw sheeps and rabbits crossed the road. From Tarbert to Manish Cottage took half an hour to get. It was confusing to find the cottage and we ended up knocking at neighbour's house. His name is Mike. Since we didn't get any phone signal (Giffgaff and Lebara) so Mike let us use his house telephone to call Mr.Johan. Turns out that Manish Cottage is the second house that you'll see at the particular road. The house was very clean and have cooking utensils. The bed was comfy. The only thing that didn't work is the tv. But it was nice for a quite time with family. We manage to tke a view of sunrise the next morning and the view was breathtaking.

“Savor the real Scotland”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We arrived to Manish cottage just off the ferry from Skye to Tarbert. The drive has many bends and as with most of the Hebrides, one-track lanes. So it's best avoided at night. The cottage itself wasn't exactly easy to find, but with help from a nearby neighbor, he hopped in his car and escorted us to the door. His name was John and he was very sweet and helpful.

The cottage itself was pretty spartan and basic, but hey: this is the Outer Hebrides and this is all part of the charm. The heating and all the facilities worked fine and the beds were comfy. One thing you'll notice about a night on the edge of Harris at night is the pitch blackness and absolute silence.

The following morning I was in for a surprise at the sheer beauty of the surroundings. Sheep were grazing and the cottage is a stone's throw from the cost itself. Another warm and friendly neighbor, Mike, came down to say hello and explained a bit of the history of the surrounding area. Amazing stuff. This is real Scotland.

So, don't hesitate! Manish cottage is the perfect way to savor Harris, past and present.
