“Superbly comfortable house in a lovely location and friendly village.”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Rudha Ban was a lovely house to arrive at after a long journey. Directions and advice from Catriona were excellent and we soon felt at home. I have never stayed at a place with such a well equipped living area and all the little additions that you would like but cannot be bothered to pack like the herbs /spices/cookery books. Local walks and facilities were a bonus, this is a friendly working village. Only tiny little things would have been a king size bed and a bath. Absolutely loved the place and do hope to return.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We just loved this house it felt like a home. Tasteful refurbishment. The best equipped kitchen we have stayed in and you could see the owners like to cook. Comfortable beds and stunning views from the bedrooms and the living room. Just perfect.

“Well equipped as a home from home”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were staying with 2 young children and my mother-in-law. The house was a good size for these numbers. The house was clean and had everything we needed as a home from home - washing-machine, etc.
It was very handy for the local(only) shop.
Ideal for anyone interested in a break away from it all.

Our second time staying in this well equipped holiday home on the beautiful island of Eriskay. The house is spotlessly clean and very well located for the local shop, pub, community hall (which hosts plenty of events for locals and holiday makers alike, we enjoyed the children's disco and the bingo!) and unspoilt white sandy beaches. The house has one large open plan living space which suits family life and an enclosed garden which is great for keeping small children in! Our older children enjoyed borrowing the bikes which are kept with the house and exploring the island on their own and we were glad of the plentiful supply of towels for returning from our frequent swims in the sea.
It would be handy to have a second bathroom but that is really a very small point. I would (and have!) highly recommend this house to friends and family and we will definitely be back :-)

So glad you had a good holiday and made such good use of what's available in the house - and beyond! We do plan to continue to develop the house further to include an extra bathroom but glad that this did not seem to spoil your over all enjoyment of what it offers. We would be delighted to welcome you all back again!

The property is as described by the owner, its stylish and spacious with a well equipped kitchen along with a large collection of books, DVD's and CD's. There's garden furniture just outside the French doors if you wish to sit outside and enjoy the views. Local shop well stocked and friendly. We stayed for three days and enjoyed the two short local walks and had a good meal in the nearby pub/restaurant AM Politician.
