The islands are scattered with magnificent, white sandy beaches, boasting beautiful, clear waters. Healair is a bird watchers paradise, with some of the most iconic birds of prey in Scotland often spotted from the large window in the living room - if you’re lucky, you may spot the odd whale or dolphin swimming by. Artists and photographers will not be disappointed either with dramatic landscapes, spectacular sunsets and on occasion an opportunity to see the Northern Lights.

Guest Comments

Kayla, August 2021

"Very comfortable place with lovely outlook. Extremely helpful hosts, all mod cons. Car needed. Thoroughly recommended."

Philip, August 2021

"We had a great stay in this beautiful home. What a superb view from a beautifully renovated cottage. Every single thing we might have needed was there for us. The welcome pack was really kind and much appreciated as well as delicious  our weather was mixed (very Scottish) so having our home comforts made it very comfortable and no hassle at all!"

Stewart, July 2021

"Excellent in all respects."

Marion, June 2021

"A wonderful and comfortable cottage, beautifully presented. Fantastic view from sitting room. Great for exploring Lewis and Harris."

Sara, June 2021

"We had a fantastic holiday on Lewis & Harris, and staying in Healair just made it all the more special. Because of covid, Christian & Gil met us outside, gave us any info that we needed, and had left a lovely welcome pack for us inside, the only downside was having to leave, loved it."

John, June 2021

"Had a lovely week at Healair which is a beautiful house in a beautiful setting. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. There is everything you need from binoculars to Smart TV. Really thoughtful extras such as fresh flowers, wine, smoked salmon, eggs etc were most appreciated. A short drive to restaurants etc in Stornaway and well positioned for touring the island. The amazing view and warm welcome from the hosts means we can thoroughly recommend Healair."

Moira, May 2021

"Fabulous location. A most enjoyable stay in a beautifully designed house. Could not wish for more.Made most welcome by the charming owners, in spite of social distancing."

Amaryllis, May 2021

"This house is just perfect. Everything you need though would benefit for shower mats.Location is ideal for exploring the Island. Found all the locals very friendly indeed. The view is amazing from the house and the every changing light just magical"

Zena, May 2021

"This holiday cottage is amazing. It has absolutely everything you could possibly want or need. The location is perfect; only 20 minutes from Stornaway for supplies and the ferry. It’s also ideal for touring Lewis and Harris and we managed to cover every part of the island from there. The accommodation is very modern but it’s also cosy and has fantastic views from the lounge. Gil and Christian were very welcoming and helpful as regards the cottage and sightseeing. I would not hesitate to return to Lewis and stay in Healair."

Dorothy, December 2020

"Super cottage with lovely views. Clean, modern, well equipped and eco-friendly. We were given a very warm welcome on arrival and quickly made ourselves comfortable. I should explain the lower marks for local amenities. This isn't a complaint, it's how we like it. Lewis is a quiet island (and even more so during Covid) and that's why we were there on holiday, so there's not much in the way of local amenities that need to be on hand. There's supermarkets, butchers and fishmonger and a few restaurants in Stornoway which is only 20 minutes away."

William, November 2020

"Beautiful and comfortable home. Had everything we needed. Amazing views. Would definitely recommend staying here for a relaxing and peaceful holiday."

Lindsey, November 2020

"Fabulous house with wonderful views. Very easy to look after and relax in. The owners had provided some thoughtful essentials and treats. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found it quite easy to get around the island to see places of interest. Unfortunately a lot of places were closed due to COVID but didn’t stop us enjoying the beautiful and gorgeous scenery."

Sally, October 2020

"Healair is a beautiful cottage and really nice, well laid out and very well equipped. The owners are very friendly, we met at a socially distanced way outside the cottage. They provided us with clear instructions and a warm welcome, we appreciated the welcome pack. The views over the bay and towards the lighthouse are amazing, every day is wonderful to wake up to see the light and the changing weather systems over the bay. It is an easy drive via Stornoway to explore Lewis and Harris."
