Getting around

The best way to get around especially to these secluded out of the way places to enjoy the view, take a walk in the hills or along the shore, is by car. There is public transport to get around the main island ring road and out to other areas but this ceases after 6pm. Local bus service information is available from the local authority website. There are local car hire firms so if you do fly in you can pick up your car at the airport or make appropriate arrangements.

Interaction with guest

We stay next door and Kenny's weaving shed is located beside the property, so we are never far away if you need us. We are always happy to share our local knowledge if required. Nearer to your visit we will arrange access details.

“Lovely Cottage, Fabulous Views”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

We really enjoyed our stay, the cottage was as described and a clean, spacious and comfortable home from home which has been a home and so has all that you need to enjoy the house, even cook books and a wonderful library of reference books. The garden was super and for us stone circle enthusiasts the location was perfect for exploring Callanish and all the associated sites, the main site and visitor centre being only about a mile away. Kenny's loom producing Harris Tweed in the old house next door is a fascinating extra facet to staying here, he is very happy to demonstrate the weaving process, a great insight to local life.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to review.

“Perfect cottage in an excellent location and extremely friendly owners too.”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2013

The cottage comes with everything one needs for a holiday on the Hebrides. The location is beautiful. The cottage comes with a lovely garden and is equipped with pretty much everything ranging from kitchen utensils to a music and book library. The owners are extremely friendly and contactable any time. The experience matches the description of the cottage precisely. Just perfect.

“A Proper Lewis Holiday Home - Bliss!”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2013

Stayed here with my partner, our 8 year old son and my parents. We have stayed in a few holiday lets on Lewis over the past 5 ro 6 years and can honestly say this is by far the best yet. Others may have fancier interior decor (with fancy prices to match) and some may lack even a bottle opener but this place was just right. I've never felt more relaxed on holiday, and dare I say it, more at home. the cottage is spacious, clean, comfortable and very well equipped including wifi. The location was perfect for us, and though I appreciate that will be a matter of personal preference it is quite central to Lewis and convenient for most main routes. Set back from the road just far enough to offer peace and quiet but close enough to make access straightforward. The views from the front of the house are lovely, especially as the sun sets, very peaceful. Everything we needed seemed to be at hand and with the stress of worrying about accommodation out of the way we were free to enjoy our holiday, just as it should be! Caroline & Kenny were fantastic, welcoming and friendly, they are sure of great success with this new venture. Kenny was good enough to show us his loom (next door) and we even got to have a little go at weaving the tweed. He also showed incredible patience with our son Charlie and his determination to become a sheep dog expert, throwing sticks for Dot & Sheila for hours on end. Sure it has some quirks such as the bath/shower (interesting challenge for someone 6'2" like myself) and the stair lift (useful to some, not to others) but they didn't detract from what was overall a real "find" as far as we're concerned. This was our first time at Taigh Granaidh but it almost certainly won't be the last.
