comfortable, warm, three bedroom house 10 miles off the main road through Lewis. Beautiful scenery and quiet location. Well furnished, clean and tidy with some lovely touches i.e. flowers and welcome pack on arrival. Plenty of kitchen equipment and basics all available such as washing up liquid, salt, pepper and many other basics. Good contact with the Iain the owner.

Owner's reply: Thank you for you lovely review. We're enjoying some lovely weather. Ideal conditions to get out and about. Thank you again.

“Comfort in remote location.”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2018

Despite being off the beaten track all parts of Lewis and Harris are readily accessible. The cottage is well equipped and good for a family. We are very comfortable and much enjoying the rich variety of visits available to us.

“Held our booking then never confirmed.”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2018

Quite disappointed actually. We had planned to have an overnight on Harris while visiting our holiday home on Skye. We booked for an available night at Glen Gravir Cottage and then waited and waited for an “acceptance” of the booking. The next mid-morning I sent a message to the owner and never heard back. Regretfully, the system locks you in for 24 hours and you are at the mercy of the owner to decide if they accept or not. With the 24 hour lock, we couldn’t look for another accommodation without risk of having two costly bookings and also didn’t want to risk scheduling the ferry without positive confirmation. I sent another message with a couple of hours to go to ask for the courtesy of either confirming or releasing the booking so we could find an alternative. Never heard a word. They simply didn’t respond and let the booking “expire.” We love Skye and have a house there, visit often and are sad to say that this experience was not great in trying to go see Harris. At least we had a nice visit to Raasay which is much easier to get to than the outer isles (the ferry schedule is really a trick to negotiate if you plan on only a day there) The house itself looked nice in the photos, alas we will never know.

“Great cottage”

Great cottage for visiting both Lewis and Harris. Comfortable beds, spotlessly clean and everything you need. Would highly recommend this cottage.
