Guest Comments

"No fault of holiday cottage Idea for two people Lovely comfortable bed !"

Ian, August 2021

"A really nice little cottage. It has everything you would need. The only thing I would have preferred is a screen on the shower rather than a curtain - really don't like these as they alway stick to you. Liz communicated well and was lovely when we spoke on the phone. Really helpful when I had to reorganise due to the lockdown last May when I was originally due to travel.Overall excellent."

Alison, May 2021

Debbie, October 2020

"A very cosy and comfortable cottage for our week on Lewis; just 15 minutes from Stornoway. Good broadband and WiFi."

David, September 2020

"This was an excellent base from which to explore Lewis and Harris. The Wee Gem is just that, small and cosy, with everything we required. Thoughtful touches, clean and felt Covid safe."
