The Harris hills over New Year

We had a super time at Strathview and hope to return.  We were so comfortable.  We all agreed Strathview could be wonderful for an autumn / winter week when we could light the coal fire.  The cottage was presented beautifully.  It was pristine.  Thanks again

Harris as always did not disappoint even though weather was a little mixed.  First couple of days scorching so it was all about Scarista beach and using strathview's lovely deck / balcony for Bbq with freshly caught lobster from creels off St Kilda.  Strathview was perfect, cosy and comfortable but quite the 'tardis' with rooms big enough to accommodate our three generations.  The grandsons loved the decking and garden.  I loved coffee and cake and oh! the silence here at Strathview!

We had such a great holiday on Harris.  Your cottage is delightful and was really too big for just the two of us - but we did enjoy all of the amenities and the location - absolutely perfect.  You really have a beautiful home there.  The birds really kept us amused and could devour the fat balls in a blink! 

The location of Strathview was ideal for exploring and we managed to see many of the incredible sights on Harris and Lewis, but we also managed to just sit back, relax and enjoy - which was so easy at Strathview!  If I could go back tomorrow - I would!  Thank you once again.

We've had the most wonderful week at Strathview.  The house is perfect for us - and so well equipped.  We will be back!  Highlights include glorious beach days and a boat trip with Hebrides Island Boat trips - otters / dolphins / sea eagles / and seals.  Callanish and the Black House village and lovely cakes from Temple.  All just a beautiful short car trip from the cottage.  Thank you again -  just what we needed

A lovely week at Strathview - the cottage is in such a beautiful location.  We had a fantastic time.  Thank you

The stags (viewed from the cottage) have entertained us one or more evening and our last day one has been within 100 yards of the garden fence.  We have found the cottage very well equipped and comfortable.  It has been a holiday to remember.

I would like to thank you for the most amazing week we spent in your house!

Weather was mixed but we managed to see many places in the sun! I have decided on a new favourite beach - Seilebost! Absolutely stunning 🥰

I do hope to come back next year and would love to stay in your cosy house again. Best equipped self catering with so many personal touches I have ever stayed in! Dogs absolutely loved it too. 

We saw seals and eagles on this trip so very happy indeed. 


Thanks again and hope to be back soon

We've loved every minute in this warm, peaceful beautiful place.  Every time we come to Strathview it feels more and more like home.  Every day has been an adventure, and we've loved getting to know more of this island and its hospitable inhabitants.  Can't wait to come back!  The most beautiful place in the world.

Strathview is ideally placed for Tarbert and the beautiful beaches.  Better equipped cottage than many on the island

Another fabulous week following on from last year.  We leave with many memories and have already booked for next year to make some more.  Nice new touches in the cottage

We have enjoyed our time here again and covered most of Harris and Lewis.  Thanks again for the use of your gorgeous cottage

A lovely cottage refurbished with taste.  Remote deck - having breakfast outside.  Interesting books about Harris and the history of the Hebrides.  Relaxing evenings in the living room enjoying the open fire.  Seals and their pups playing joyful in the bay.  The ferry from the porch.  Fantastic stay!

Had an enjoyable week at Strathview - watching red deer from the cottage.

Best month of our lives!  A wonderful month at Strathview.  We love Harris

Your lovely cottage so welcoming and comfortable is a perfect place to chill out.

Walks in the North Harris hills - one of the best walks on the island is right on the doorstep.  That is the Postman's Path to Rhenigidale.  Thanks again for letting us use Strathview and we look forward to returning next year.

And Strathview is always so cheerful and cosy to come back to. Thanks for sharing this delightful well appointed Cottage with us all!  I do hope we'll be back one day

Excellent digs.  Beautiful weather and magnificent scenery.

Thank you for allowing us the pleasure of renting Strathview.

Strathview has been a fabulous base for our Island adventures.  Set in an idyllic setting the cottage is welcoming and well equipped.  Lots of little thoughtful extras which are useful.

How perfectly chosen was this cottage which has everything you need.  Is in pristine condition yet feels homely and welcoming to the stranger.  My favourite ever cottage holiday.

The cottage is beautiful and Deborah and Richard have been so thoughtful in the information and equipment here.

Really enjoyed staying in this very comfortable cottage in this fantastic location.

The cottage is gorgeous and the setting is stunning.

Thank you Richard and Deborah for the use of your lovely cottage

A wonderful relaxing stay in your lovely house.

Beautiful week on a beautiful island and staying in the perfect cottage.

Very comfortable cottage with lovely views.  Tastefully appointed.  Nice finishing touches.

Another highlight was sitting on the decking in the sunshine drinking Harris gin with pink grapefruit watching the wildlife.  Thank you so much for sharing Strathview with us – it really is a beautiful place to come and unwind.  We hope to be back

Where do we start.  This has been one of our best holidays ever. Strathview has just been perfect, so comfy and welcoming.  It just has everything you need.  Deborah and Richard have thought of everything to make it a home from home.  I love the photos and the artwork.  The views are amazing.  When the sun shines on Harris nowhere on earth can beat it

"Sitting in the sunroom drinking tea and enjoying the views... with sparrows, squabbling over the suet balls outside the window... and even more so the adorable little wren who put in an appearance from time to time...  Evenings in front of a cosy log fire, sipping Harris gin and tonic, we are leaving relaxed, restored and inspired - with so many happy memories...  as well as gin, artwork and tweed.... This place gets into your bones.  I hope to return one day. Thanks for letting us stay in your gorgeous cottage." - September 2017

"The cottage and island took my breath away.  The cottage is so lovely and welcoming and cosy and even on windy rainy days, is snug and warm.  It is home from home with everything anyone would need.   It's set in amazingly beautiful scenery which changes and surprises you around every corner with its beautiful bays and beaches and rugged hills.  I felt like I could be in another world and was thrilled to sea two eagles.  If I never get up there again, I will never let go of the precious  memories I have of that holiday and will  treasure the photos which will keep those memories fresh." - October 2017
