AMAZING EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
The perfect choice of venue for those seeking a peaceful break, highest quality accommodation, excellent hospitality, and stunning views. The changing tides of Luskentyre beach, overseen from every window of the apartment, painted a striking range of colours as it moved across the vast expanse of white sands. It’s our view, supported by those locals we spoke with, that the accommodation offers the best location on Harris. Away from the apartment, and keen walkers, we particularly enjoyed the opportunity to discover unspoilt locations at high and lower levels, undisturbed by the high footfall seen in other holiday spots. Never short of things to do, we were struck by the warm welcome and interest invariably shown by the locals we met across the island. Ours was a special holiday experience, enhanced by Bill and Agnes, who were the perfect hosts, freely giving of their time, advice and some yummy home-baking. The Harris experience and apartment is given a massive and unreserved recommendation. We left with fond memories and a strong appetite for more.

STUNNING LOCATION, WONDERFUL HOLIDAY!!

  • 5 of 5
The accommodation was A class! We loved the remote location although it took us a couple of days to adjust. A true escape with lots and lots of fresh air and not 2 days the same. Would recommend to anyone who wants to experience stunning views and avoid crowds and noise... Only bit of advice would be to prepare ahead re: provisions and eating out is limited. Nothing opens Sunday and couldnt get fresh fish on Mondays.. We got around it and hospitality and friendliness by Agnes was very warming. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Can't wait to come back.
