Holiday Rental House
Cuckoo Cottage features both traditional and contemporary elements to create a comfortable and easy environment to make a holiday base as effortless as possible. It's underfloor heating provides an unobtrusive ambient temperature even in winter, and the large south facing ground floor windows look directly onto the Harris hills, sea and the island of Taransay. The cottage is perfectly situated to explore Harris and Lewis, with easy access for hill-walking, visiting historical sites, and walking the miles of white sand beaches which have made the area so famous. The cottage is only metres from the dunes and beach of Luskentyre, providing a constantly changing, highly photogenic experience during every season. ...Cuckoo Cottage features both traditional and contemporary elements to create a comfortable and easy environment to make a holiday base as effortless as possible.

The cottage was beautifully decorated with modern kitchen, luxurious bathrooms and underfloor heating (we had to turn it down). It was more spacious than we expected, and simply styled (cosy modern Scandinavian design). Everything was very comfortable, there was lots of space for everyone to...More

Disappointed in property for the money we paid. Could not get under floor heating going (may have been us). Only place to hang clothes was a very old and worn out wardrobe with broken door handle and door sticking. This was also situated downstairs. The...More

I'm happy to say that the reviewer said he liked the cottage, in a telephone conversation during his stay. Regretfully, the underfloor heating developed an air lock during or just prior to the reviewer's stay. Fortunately, the problem was professionally resolved within 24 hrs of...More

About the neighbourhood
Harris is the perfect holiday location for outdoors activities. There are wonderful routes for hill-walkers, both difficult and easy, giving spectacular views, with opportunities to see eagles, deer and historical remains. There are lots of guided walks available which can explain the intricacies of the natural and cultural heritage. Trips can be made to the remote islands of St Kilda, loch or sea fishing can be hired or sea life tours taken around the east coast bays. Cycling and surfing are increasingly popular, and surfing is now beginning to take advantage of the long Atlantic rollers which constantly break on the west coast. Simply sitting on a sand-dune or boulder listening to the sounds of the island can be the most relaxing and spiritual experience. Recently there has been an exp...
How to get there
Cuckoo Cottage sits above the world famous beach at Luskentyre. It is easily accessed by car ferry and air. By Cal Mac Ferry (0800) 066 5000 it is only 15 mins from the ferry pier at Tarbert (from Uig, Skye) and an hour from Stornoway (Ullapool ferry). Cars from North Uist will take 20 minutes from Leverburgh By Air to Stornoway, from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness (FlyBE) or Aberdeen (Eastern Airways), it is very easy to hire a car from Mackinnon Self-Drive (01851) 702984, who will deliver it to the airport and pick up after your departure. Unfortunately, despite an otherwise excellent Island bus service, Luskentyre is 2 miles from the nearest bus stop.
