The pod is perfect luxury in miniature! Although small, it has huge character. The location is perfect, giving you the feel of idyllic isolation but with all amenities close by. The views across the bay are spectacular. Suzanne was so welcoming and gave our stay the personal touch by coming to see us shortly after we arrived, making us feel like nothing was too much trouble. We cooked a lovely meal in the well equipped kitchen which has all you’d need. The bed was so comfortable, it made it difficult to get up the next morning. Couldn’t recommend the Bothy highly enough!

We arrived on a stormy night to be greeted by the lovely Suzanne who had thought of everything in the bothy! She had even arranged little extras for our grandson! The bothy has everything carefully planned! Everything from an egg maker to a hair dryer! A very comfy bed and an equally comfortable sofa bed. Lovely views overlooking Stornoway! We would definitely stay again! Thank you Suzanne! You have created a cosy and comfy retreat!

Suzanne was an excellent host, we thoroughly enjoyed the stay- the bothy was charming, the owners have gone to great lengths to get everything just right – the bothy was oriented toward the sunsets which at 58 degrees North are stunning in summer. Suzanne gave us plenty of local information and provided local produce. The pod was very well appointed and there was nothing more I could have expected.
The toilet, shower, cooking facilities etc all worked well.

Great location just outside Stornoway, less than 10 minutes from the ferry. Fully kitted out with everything you could need for a short break. Very comfortable bed and a fold out sofa for additional guests if required. Free WiFi internet with Netflix compatible TV. Larger than average pod with shower room.

Words really can’t do this little place justice. It is just a perfect place to spend a few days. We spent 3 wonderful nights. Despite it being mid-December and below freezing outside, the Bothy was lovely and warm and cosy, and we enjoyed watching shooting stars every night – the dark skies in these parts are just phenomenal. Suzanne’s communication could literally not have been any better, and small touches and attention to detail all added up to what is my best airbnb experience so far. Thanks again Suzanne – can’t wait to return!

This place is amazing! Suzanne and her husband are the perfect hosts and couldn’t be more helpful. The cabin is spotless and full of little touches that were really appreciated. If you are considering booking the bothy… do it! I can’t recommend this place enough. Great Airbnb experience.

A fantastic cosy little pod. Amazing views very clean and warm. Suzanne was great host recommending places for us to visit. Location was very good too (10 mins away from Stornaway) so easy to pick up takeaways for dinner.

Suzanne’s bothy is a cosy and unique place to spend a vacation with a beautiful view and a gorgeous cat! It’s proximity to Stornoway and the airport makes it an ideal location to explore the Hebrides from too. Suzanne was a warm, welcoming and unbeatably helpful host keen to make sure we got the best out of our travels and made us feel ever so welcome. I could not recommend staying here higher!

We stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. There were lots of nice touches in the ‘hobbit house’ and it was obvious a lot of thought had gone into it. I’d go as far as to say it was high spec! It was quite cramped for 4 people but we knew this before we went. It is for ‘glamping’ anyway so if you wanted something bigger you’d stay in a hotel! The host was wonderful and gave us loads of useful information about the area before we arrived. All in all, a great stay!

Wonderful experience. Conveniently placed 5 minutes driving outside of Stornoway, the Bothy is perfect for 3 adults or a family. Suzanne (the host) was really helpful and kind. Highly recommended
