"Five star experience"

My husband and I had an absolutely amazing time staying at Glenview Cottage. The welcome and hospitality that we received on arrival was outstanding and way above what was expected. The owners of the property (Rhoda and Neil) were so friendly and genuine when they welcomed us to the cottage and straight away we felt at home. The cottage itself is in a stunning location and we found that we were well placed for exploring and visiting the various places of interest.
Walking in the front door, it immediately felt like home. It is decorated and furnished to the highest standard. Everything inside was in immaculate condition and it was very obvious that the owners had put a lot of time, effort and thought into making Glenview a 'home from home' - there was even a good selection of DVD's, iPod docking station and music system.
The cottage was of ample size and totally exceeded our expectations. Our only disappointment was that we didn't stay for longer!!
We will definitely be back and would not hesitate for a second to recommend Glenview.

We stayed in Glenview Cottage at the end of May 2014. It was quite hard to find at first as we arrived late at night due to ferry being delayed because of bad weather. Rhoda and Neil are fantastic hos… More

"A perfect place in a perfect location."

Rhoda and Neil met us at Glenview and gave us a warm welcome (including a cake and some delicious salmon) and told us about the the the local sights and ameneties. The cottage is modern, tastefully furnished and very cosy with central heating as well as a stove in the lounge which burns peat and coal which is provided. The cottage has a raised decking area from which the views of the surrounding lochs and hills are breathtaking. Access to the broch, stone circles and wonderful golden beaches is easy and there are walks suited to every taste and ability.
We would have no hesitation returning to Glenview..

"5 star cottage...perfect home from home"

The very moment we were greeted by Rhoda, Neil and Rusti we knew this place was going to be special and we were not disappointed. Rhoda and Neil greeted us with a cuppa and cake and told us everything we needed to know about the area and recommended some places to visit.
The cottage is very well equipped and has everything you need. The location is perfect and very central for sightseeing on the islands. It was a pleasure to come back each evening to sit in the conservatory stick on some gaelic music and take in the view. This is a real home from home and our only regret is that we could not spend more time here. We would not hesitate to go back.

"Lovely Cottage in a stunning location"

Glenview cottage was great and the location was beautiful. The cottage was comfortable with all mod cons.The oil fired central heating kept it cosy, or a fire in the multifuel stove was enough to keep the living room and kitchen toasty. We enjoyed sitting in the conservatory in the sun and watching the world go by - mainly just sheep and birds (Grey heron, cormorants, greylag geese, raven, and once a golden eagle).
Rhoda the owner lives just a few miles away and was very welcoming and helpful. The Callanish stones and the Broch at Carloway are nearby and both well worth a visit. The cottage is a good base for exploring the rest of the island by car and there are stunning beaches not too far away.
