We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday on the beautiful island of Berneray in this lovely, cosy cottage. Our expectations were met and more. Very handy for taking the ferry over to Harris, spent a really nice day there too. Elspeth and Malcolm were great to deal with and we hope to return there someday. Highly recommended.
A beautiful cozy home
A very beautiful cozy cottage, and a great place to get away. The island is very beautiful especially the beach on the far side of the island. The cottage it's self was very well presented and everything you could need was provided down to the fire being already laid. Everything was as described and I would happly stay again.

Berneray and North Uist are wonderful places to visit and Taigh Ailean was a real treat to stay in. This comfortable cottage has been extremely well renovated and there are several luxury/homely features that make it such a special place to stay, including under floor heating and top of the range linen.
Looking forward to returning sometime soon.
I have run out of superlatives to describe Beneray, its stunning West Beach and the quaint Turner cottage which resides on the island.
Restored to a high specification, whilst preserving all of the original features, the cottage it was a joy to stay in. Heated floors and a roaring log fire ensured that you were never cold and the provision of a rather splendid set of bath robes, slippers and towels was a nice touch.
I will certainly be returning, stunning location, views and property - many thanks for sharing it with me!
