It is hard to describe the beauty of this location, especially from the sunroom that overlooks the loch. We were fortunate to have beautiful blue skies every day, which meant we spent our mornings drinking a warm beverages while enjoying the view from the sunroom, our days exploring Lewis, and our evenings sharing a glass of wine while once again watching they sky darken from the comfort of the conservatory. I can only imagine how amazing it would be to sit in that same place during a storm.
With the warm weather, we never spent time in the cozy living room or took advantage of the sauna in the downstairs bathroom.
Be aware that the bedroom is on the smaller side, with slanted ceilings on either side of the bed.. but it was comfortable and the skylights added plenty of natural light upstairs.
The upstairs bathroom includes has a large bathtub, and the downstairs bathroom has a small shower.
The kitchen is modernly decorated and conveniently includes a small washer/drier unit.
The neighborhood is unique and rural including the neighbor's free-range ducks wandering in and out of the sloped yards. It should be noted that some of the neighbors have a variety of junk out in their yards (as you sometimes find in older rural areas), but none of that is visible from the views inside the house.
The 30 minute drive to the city of Stornoway is convenient and we spent our time on the island exploring visiting historic sites, seeing local crafts, and visiting art galleries (I particularly recommend Margaret Stevenson's amazing "Gallery 5" in Tolstachaolais and the "Best Coffee on Lewis" at the Morven Gallery and Cafe).
When we arrived we had a bottle of Merlot waiting for us, a warm, clean home, and clean linens... all as expected.
The entire experience in Lewis was amazing, and it was so nice to have a comfortable place to return to each evening.
