CREAGACH SELF CATERING CHALET HARRIS

HARRIS WEBSITE

Well what can I say, thank you for this lovely Chalet, has everything we could need, even Charlie loved it, the homemade bread and fresh eggs were very welcome and very tasty.  We have had the most relaxed and chilled out week travelling around Harris and up to Lewis, but is such a delight to spend a few days charging our batteries and giving Charlie a break from the car at the Chalet and going down to the beach.  I'm going to miss just walking out the door and seeing the beautiful scenery just outside. Watched Eagles and Sea Eagles flying over the bay, Stags on our way along the road. Loved every bit of the wee tranquil paradise.

George & Doreen + Charlie the dog, July 22nd 2017.

 

We had an absolutley fantastic time here, the weather was fab!  The welcome we got was great. Chalet was and is 1st class! We can honestly say this won't be our last visit here. The dogs loved every minute of their holidays & loved all the attention.  Don't want to go home, we have spent a week in paradise, thank you so much.

Mark, Donna, David & Debbie + Thor & Harley the dogs, July 15th 2017.

 

We had a lovely week in your lovely Chalet, there was everything we need and more. Lovely welcome with warm homemade bread. Great entertainment in the evening provided by the Highland Cows.  Great beach on our doorstep. Thank you so much for the lovely Chalet, we will be back.

Lynn, Colin, Rachel & Ailsa, Strathaven, July 8th 2017.

 

Have had an amazing week.  The weather has been fantastic, we weren't quite brave enough to swim but paddled and the water was lovely.  Lots of amazing walks from the Chalet as well as a trip to the Lighthouse at Scalpay where we saw seals, dolphins, porpoises and minke whales. Lots of birds - Golden Plover, Golden Eagles, and one Sea Eagle over Cnoc Mor.  The Chalet has been fantastic - so cosy to come back to at the end of a long day's walk.  We had gins on the terrace and watched the Highland cows mosey up the road.  The Chalet has everything you could need (and had forgotten) we want Dotty to come and organise our house, thank you very much, we'll be back next year if you can fit us in!

Jo & Eoghan, London, July 1st 2017.

 

Another superb week on Harris, beautiful scenery, super beaches, wonderful special times.  Had a great visit to St Kilda, Gannets & Puffins in their thousands. Our holiday was so special and unforgettable.

Richard & Jo + Clyde & Millie the dogs, Staffordshire, June 17th 2017.

 

This was our second visit to the Chalet and yet again we had a wonderful relaxing stay.  The weather was really kind to us and gave us some great sunsets (albeit a little late at this time of year)! Great beaches, great scenery and fabulous hosts.  Thank you again for the very warm welcome. We hope to see you again in the near future.

Matt & Gina + Bella the dog, Glossip, June 10th 2017.

 

This was our first trip to Harris and it has exceeded all our expectations.  We have loved every moment from the sea and skyscapes to the wildlife and walking.  Creagach Chalet was a wonderful place to stay not only for it's fabulous situation and stunning views, but also because it was cosy, clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay.  Thank you so much for all your help with local walks and the lovely homemade bread.  It's the first time we have re-booked a holiday (and for longer next time) before we have even arrived home. It was amazing and we cannot wait to retrn, thank you.

Ann & Andrew, Norwich, June 3rd 2017.

 

Even with the highest expectations, Lewis and Harris have not disappointed.  helped by the fact that we have had 2 superb locations, and have been blessed with superb weather.  The range of textures and colours have been fantastic and I have found a magical stillness and beauty on Mheilen, up on the Huiseabhal Beag, at Cleabhaig (wow), up Uladail, and the coastal path from Rhenigidale.  We have been so lucky and hope to be back for further exploration.  Thank you for the lovely home.

Mike & Ruth, Wales, May 13th 2017.

 

One of those few places where time is on your side.  We've had a wonderful time here, thank you so much!  The Chalet was wonderful and comfortable, and the Island is delightful.  We've seen marvellous beaches and loved the animals and wildlife,  especially the Highland Cattle, gorgeous.

Peter & Barbara, Southampton, May 6th 2017.

 

Thank you - perfection.

Jon & Zoe the labrador, London, April 8th-22nd 2017.

 

Huge thank you for a wonderful holiday, best bits, Traigh Mheilen beach is a little bit of heaven, Eagles out the back, Gannets out the front, beauty everywhere.  What a privilege to share this.  Thank you so much for the comfortable Chalet, very thoughtfully kitted out.  We are so glad we came here to the best bit of Harris by far.

John & Debbie + Tember the dog, Cumbria, April 8th 2017..

 

A wonderful week on Harris again. Drizzle, sunshine, rainbows and rain. Autumn colours that just go zing. Reds and yellows that really sing. A walk to see Golden Eagles that soar. Pristine beaches, we just want more. Boris the border loves his time here. He just keeps walking although 17 years. The hosts here are so wonderfully kind.  No better place to holiday will you find. Cosiest Chalet, homemade scones & bread. What better place to lay your head.

Pauline & Rod + Boris the dog, Lancs, November 5th 2016.

 

So many lovely touches, we were made to feel very welcome & our golden retriever Harris was positively delighted with his special doggy bed, toys, bowls and even a yummy treat! We had a week filled with lazy times in the lovely comfortable Chalet combined with outdoor adventures in this most special place. The nice weather was an added bonus, thank you for alerting us to the Northern Lights.

Lorraine & Mark, Elizabeth + Harris the dog, Kyle of Lochalsh, October 15th 2016.

 

Lovely to be back again in this very special place, which has a place in our hearts.  Even the weather was smiling! Thanks so much for everything.

Janice & Angus + Raya & Skye the dogs, Cumbria, October 1st 2016.

 

The Chalet has everything you could need for a wonderful relaxing holiday. We haven't been blessed with the weather but this hasn't stopped us from seeing such fabulous Islands and their wildlife.  Thanks for making us feel so welcome and a big woof woof from Clyde & Millie. Will be back next year.

Richard and Jo + Clyde and Millie the dogs, Staffordshire, 19th September 2016.

 

We can only echo again, again & again the comments regarding the special touches that bring to the experience of staying here. As two very tired souls we haven't been as active and adventurous as we would have liked (much to the disappointment of the four legged friend in the party)  but our tired souls have been rejuvinated and inspired being here. What a place to just "be". Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Rachel and Rachel + Brillo the dog, Oxfodshire, September 3rd 2016.

 

Relaxed, recharged and refreshed but not ready to go!  A fantastic week in the most beautiful Chalet and surroundings.  We had great weather and lots of scenic picnics. Hushinish is a very special place and our favourite spot on the Island. We have seen Eagles, Dolphins, Seals, so many birds, the local sheep and Highland cows made us smile.

Marianne & Stewart + Lucky the dog, Devon, August 27th 2016.

 

What a fantastic week we have had on Harris. On arrival shown around the perfect Chalet by Dotty and treated to the home made bread and scones.  The Children would have been more than happy to play on Hushinish beach for the entirety of the holiday but we managed to see some of wild Harris. This place is stunning and we only hope to return to explore more of the Island.  To top it off we have seen Golden Eagles, plenty of seabirds and even a seal. We hope to retun to this fabulous place, Thank you.

Michael, Elissa, Grace, Noah and Thomas + Maya the dog, Lancashire, August 20th 2016.

 

Loved it!! perfect hosts, thanks so much for looking after Marmite so we could have a day on St. Kilda. Kayaking, snorkelling, 3 walks on the bird of prey trail, although had our best displays from the Chalet of 2 Golden Eagles on the rocks and 2 Sea Eagles the next day!! Mheilen Beach is a must do! We loved every minute and will definitely return. Thank you so much.

Julie, Robert, Joe and Bryan + Marmite the dog, Yorkshire, August 13th 2016.

 

Had a super week, weather has been mixed but it hasn't stopped us from visiting the beautiful beaches that Harris & Lewis are famous for. Thank you, you seem to have thought of everything you need & much more, baking on arrival was fab. We have seen 2 Eagles from outside the Chalet and of course the Highland cows.  Been lovely and relaxing and lots of fun.  Maisie loved her doggie duvet.

Fiona, John and Lucy + Maisie the dog, Glasgow, July 23rd 2016.

 

Lovely week in Harris.  The Chalet is cosy & well equipped. The beaches as lovely as we remembered, loved the flowers in the machair & seeing the Eagles flying over our heads!!

Hutchenson family, Edinburgh, July 9th 2016.

 

First stay on Harris and had a lovely week!! Chalet has been wonderful, clean and very comfortable with the most amazing views.  Walks are great but still haven't managed to do all of them.  We've been amazed at how light it is even at midnight. Definitely will return,  thanks for sharing this place with people like us to see, we will miss the lovely sheep and the baby wagtails who are so adorable, I could write forever about this place!! we will miss it so much.

Donna and Michael, Leeds, 25th June 2016.

 

As last year, we were given a wonderful warm welcome, it was like coming home.  It was Geoff's 86th Birthday on the day we arrived.

The weather has been fantastic, like being in the Med, as we spent all our time, except one day, walking around here. Over the peninsula we saw dolphins, Geoff called it "The promised Land" we wandered there most days, enjoying the birds, the flowers & the scenery.  We were also delighted to be surrounded by the Highland cattle with young, we also loved being close to Dotty's sheep. All in all a magical week.

Geoff and Irene, Cumbria, June 4th 2016.

 

We have had a wonderful holiday, fantastic weather! Lovely Chalet with everything needed in such a beautiful place.  We will definitely be back to explore more of this beautiful Island and enjoy the fabulous beaches, we could stay forever.  Thank you so much it's been fantastic.

Paul, Beverley & Lucy, Cheshire, 28th May 2016.

 

"Hushinish Heaven" Our second visit but first stay at wonderful Creagach. Hope we will be back for a third visit in due course.  We were so lucky with wonderful weather all week and wonderful walks. Thank you so much.

Romilly & Jarden + Tummel the dog, Pitlochry and Sheila, Vancouver, 21st May 2016.

 

During my years of travelling and visiting various places all over the globe I have stayed in some amazing places, but it would be hard to beat this Chalet for location, peace, solitude and atmosphere. It's a real home from home, and after just one week here it will be a wrench to have to travel back to the real world!! Dotty & Christine are the perfect hosts, helpful, knowledgeable but never intrusive. Many thanks for looking after Ana for us while we took on a longer walk. Although we packed a lot of adventures in with in 7 days, there are still things left unticked on our to do list, which means we'll be back! and maybe spend a bit longer here next time.

Tony & Gill, + Flynn, Inci & Ana the dogs, 7th May 2016.

 

We love this place!! wonderful, beautiful, peaceful, nice folks. A clear night with countless stars! we will never forget this week, hope to return.

Bert & Laban, Netherlands, 29th April 2016.

 

Have loved our stay here, really enjoyed the drive to and from the main road, each journey brought something different and some magnificent sunsets on return. All the wonderful animals and birds, especially the Highland Cattle family which has increased since we've been here! and Dotty's purple bottom sheep! Jessie and Mabel thank you for such a comfy bed and dog treats & they've had some great walks. Thank you sooo much.

Susie, + Jessie & Mabel the dogs, Edinburgh, April 17th 2016.

 

Had a fantastic week in a truly magical part of the World, the dogs have really settled into this place quickly and allowed us the real break and peace we were looking for. Already planning our return...

John & Liz, +Chico & Ludo the dogs, Glasgow, April 2nd, 2016.

 

We have had the most wonderful relaxing break here at Creagach as a family.  An idyllic Chalet in the most stunning spot, so well kitted out and the fresh homemade bread and scones were a lovely touch.  We had never been to Harris before so everything was a surprise to us. The beaches were like being in Barbados (minus the heat, as it is March afterall) Sunday was Mother's Day and after a very relaxing morning lazing about, we set off down to Hushinish beach, a short wander down the road truly is the most precious little gem of a beach. For hours in the sunshine, we played with the dog, admired the gorgeous views that changed with every lap of a wave, did cartwheels, took stunning photos and enjoyed quality family time laughing, joking, smiling and playing. I can honestly say I think it was the best Mother's Day I have ever had, finished off by a Sunday roast cooked in our well equipped Chalet.  We had the lucky experience (thanks to Dotty alerting us) of experiencing a show of Northern Lights right outside.

Mairi, Alan, Amber & Zander, +Sapphire the dog, March 7th 2016.

 

Creagach is one of the best places that we've stayed. Sketched on the beach then walked to the lovely beach round the coast, paradise Traigh Mheilein, had scones and tea on the beach. We will be back.

Helen, Tich, Joan & Islay the dog, Ratagan, March 2nd 2016.

 

We've spent an unforgettable week in this lovely, cosy Chalet in a landscape that has not stopped amazing us every day.  Harris is breathtakingly beautiful, the doggies have enjoyed exploring the hills above the Chalet and have been tired out every evening on their dog bed which was thoughtfully provided.  We have enjoyed the walk down to Hushinish and some sunny clear days.  A few rain soaked windy days all added to the atmosphere and we enjoyed snuggling up by they fire in the Chalet with a glass of red. Thank you so much for such a warm welcome, we hope to be back one day.

Catherine & James,  Lenny & Ruby the dogs, Sheffield, November 10th 2015.

 

Perfect week of rest, relaxation & peace.  A great place to stay, no need to go anywhere else. Lovely walks, beaches & sunsets.

Jill, Ullapool, October 17th 2015.

 

A simply wonderful week! we loved it, and the doggies had the time of their lives too!!   A big thanks for knocking on the door so we didn't miss the Norther Lights!!

Phil, Sarah and Oscar & Mika the doggies, Northumberland, October 10th 2015.

 

Lovely time as ever on Harris. Pooped the dog out!! Thanks for a lovely stay in a cosy, clean, well equipped Chalet.

Rachael, Dave and Tagish the dog, Durham, October 3rd 2015.

 

Had a great week, enjoyed the walk down to the beach everyday, the Seascape is amazing & always changing. Saw Eagles everyday, also seals & dolphins but unfortunately not the elusive otters!!

Hugh, Susan & Mac the dog, Black Isle, 26th September 2015.

 

We've been to many Scottish Islands but we think Harris is our favourite. We've had a great week since arriving. The Chalet is great and we would definitley come back some time.

Paul & Emma, Teeside, September 19th 2015.

 

We arrived to such a warm welcome, the Chalet was ready and every attention to detail cared for. We very much enjoyed the lovely fresh bread and scones, which we ate on the beautiful sandy beach. Bella dog had so much fun running on the beach and jumping the waves, I think we finally tired her out by the end of the week. I really wish we could stay here longer as there is so much to see and lots of places to explore. Many thanks for making us feel very welcome, we enjoyed a very relaxing memorable holiday.

Gina, Matt and Bella the dog, September 5th 2015.

 

Arrived in the gloom to a warm welcome. Lovely spot, books are brill particularly David Yeadon - Seasons on Harris and Bill Lawson - Harris in History and Legend. Maps proved useful as did the tips on good cafes and places to visit. Saw Eagles all over the place and a red kite at Rodel. Had a lovely meal at the Community Bistro on Scalpay. Thank you for everything, have loved staying here.

John, Shirley, Faith + Zella the dog, Kendal, August 29th 2015.

 

When I tried to book your Chalet for August 2014, (18 months ago), you were fully booked, but it looked so idylic I booked for 2015!! It has been everything I imagined and more! The scenery is breathtaking and your hospitality wonderful. We found lots of great places to use our kayaks, we'll have to come back to try some more. Cassie and Jess say thanks for the treats and super comfy dog bed, they have loved running on the sand and swimming in the sea, and have even learned to sit in a kayak.

Carole, Chris, Liz & Meg + Jess & Cassie the dogs, Bristol, August 21st 2015.

 

Very relaxing stay in a wonderful landscape, we enjoyed the warm hospitality, the nice walks, sunsets, beaches, sheep & cows. Impressive waves clashing against the rocks just down from the Chalet. Thanks for everything.

Rendtel family, Germany, August 15th 2015.

 

Thank you so much, we have had a wonderful week, we have covered most of Harris and Lewis from the Butt of Lewis in the North, to Rodel Church in the South, scenery is spectacular and we have caught some amazing glimpses of the wildlife these Islands have to offer.

Thank you so much for the home made treats, just what we needed after days out. Goes without saying, Phoebe had a brilliant time too.

Andy & Cathy, Alex & Samantha, + Phoebe the dog, Yorkshire, August 8th 2015.

 

We can't thank you enough for everything you did that made our stay here unforgettable and very special and that made us feel at home from the first moment.

Eric, Anke & Simon, Belgium, July 18th 2015.

 

Lovely holiday, everything we hoped for. Lots of fun at the beach. Highlight was wild fishing, the boys caught loads of fish and improved their fishing skills.  Fantastic hospitality, loved the scones.

Sarah & Douglas, Andrew, Finlay, Lachlan, Killearn, July 11th 2015.

 

Amazing holiday right by the best family beach,  tried the others and decided Hushinish was our favourite. Walked up to the top of the hill on a clear evening and the view from up there of all of Harris and the surrounding islands is utterly majestic.

Dean Family & Woody the dog, Stirlingshire, July 4th 2015.

 

We had the most wonderful two weeks in this beautiful place. The Chalet is perfect and we've never stayed anywhere so dog friendly.

We are already planning our next holiday here.

Denise, Chris and Florrie & Wilf the dogs, Kendal June 27th 2015.

 

We have all had a great week here. Loved the beaches, the mountains, wildlife, the ancient landscape, just too much to see in a week and didn't want to rush it!! We shall miss everything, purple bottom sheep & the hens, the little puffin in the bay - hope he finds home.

Thanks for such a perfect holiday home.

Hilary, Malc & Lizzie,  Tot & Berry the dogs, Leicestershire, June 13th 2015.

 

We were overwhelmed with this amazing Chalet, such good quality with everything here, wonderful situation. Loved the animals and the birds, the Eagles are huge! Thank you so much for our lovely holiday.

Martin & Ann, Gloucestershire, June 6th 2015.

 

Wonderful week, very comfortable and well equipped Chalet with lovely welcoming and helpful hosts. Highlights of the week, seeing and photographing an otter at very close range, exploring this area and enjoying the walking. Meeting up with family on Lewis and revisiting long-loved beaches in that area, the Eagle walk and Callanish Stones.

Fred, Allison & Janice, Cumbria, May 23rd 2015.

 

Hard to beat this Holiday, and hospitality, such a warm welcome. Weather was snow, sleet, frost, bit of rain and plently of sunshine. Walked the Hushinish area, all the coves and bays, walked the hills, toured the beaches and toured round the Island, including Lewis.

Took bus trip to Tarbert then Luskentyre - Awesome! Been to Stornoway, Ness, Callanish Stones etc.  The local people are lovely and extremely interesting. Harris is relaxing and beautiful with so much to see and do, one week is just an introduction.  We saw seals, dolphins, otters, cormorants and Eagle all here at the Chalet.

Chalet is so cosy and everything you would ever need has been thought of. Our photo memories will remind us, til we come back just how special a place awaits again.

Arlene, Connie, Prasad, Elke & Barney the dog, Callander, May 2nd 2015.

 

As I write there is a fabulous sunset across the bay! words really can't describle the time we have spent here at the Chalet, walks, birds, weather! We have been very lucky to have sunshine, birds we have seen : Heron at the Castle, Cormorants flying into the cove across from the Chalet feeding young, tufted ducks, 2 Eagles, oyster catchers, ringed plovers, red breasted divers, hooded crows, greylag geese, ravens...... We also have thoroughly enjoyed our walks taking in the geology of the area.

Overall we have had the peace and tranquility here at the Chalet, we are sad to leave, a week is not enough.

Irene & Geoff, Penrith, Cumbria April 25th 2015.

 

Booked Chalet as a surprise for my wife Samantha's 40th Birthday, couldn't be happier than when we arrived after 10.30pm after getting lost and travelling in the fog to the Chalet. Chalet was all cosy and warm with fresh bread and Birthday cupcakes on arrival.  Fantastic week had by all (2 teenage daughters and 2 huskies don't want to leave) Weather has been great, visited Eilean Glas Lighthouse, Eagle walk, Callanish Standing Stones, Luskentyre and Stornoway for our black pudding.  We saw deer, Eagles and a seal while sitting on rocks across from the Chalet. Thanks again.

Alan, Samantha, Alana, Abbie and Mia & Mylo the huskies, Hamilton, March 28th 2015.

 

Fantastic chalet!! lots of thought has went into all the bits & bobs you would need. Love it here on Harris, great week cycling, walking, swimming in the Ocean, fishing, just what we needed for our Honeymoon. Jazz the dog is officially knacked. We will be back soon.

Morven, Ally & Jazz the labrador, Stonehouse, July 26th 2014.

 

Fantastic 2 weeks with wonderful hospitality & good weather. Beautiful views and loved spending our days on the beach, paddling & beach combing. Loved the wildlife and beautiful machair. Great walks. Chalet is so cosy and comfy, also very interesting literature on Harris's history, managed to read two!

Ray & Avril, Tyne & Wear, June 28th 2014.

 

650 mile drive but so worth it, amazing! people and places so awesome, we loved every minute and look forward to returning again one day.

Adrian & Sarah, Somerset, June 14th 2014.

 

Our first time in the Outer Hebrides was a fantastic experience! the landscape is so stunning and the people friendly. We loved the mountains and Ocean and the constantly changing colours and moods. We saw Eagles, seals and plenty of sheep of course.

Monika from Austria, Michaela from Switzerland and James from England, May 22nd 2014.

 

We have had a lovely week, weather has been mixed, scenery and beaches are stunning. Maggie and Pip the dogs had a brilliant time.

Chalet was beautiful and spotless, well equipped. Maggie and Pip say woof woof for the treat you left for them, we will recommend the Chalet to anyone.

Olive, Wendy, Maggie and Pip the dogs, Borders, May 17th 2014.

 

We've had a wonderful relaxing week here at your lovely Chalet and the dogs have thoroughly enjoyed themselves with their daily walks on the beach.  We will definitley be returning again in the future, thanks again

Diana, Natalie and Finn, Marley & Eddie the dogs, Glasgow/Surrey, 11th May 2014.

 

Thanks so much for this fabulous week, we had so much luck with the weather, nearly no rain and a real "Summer day" at the beach (20 degrees) and were in the Ocean. Carla had a lots of fun with the sheep and the little lambs. We wish and hope to come back to this special and unique place, when we found such a warm welcome, lots of impressions.

Christoph, Cornelia, and Carla, Mainz Germany, April 26th 2014.

 

Thanks for a lovely time, very cosy beds and a warm welcome. Gorgeous beaches and we had a BBQ on the 2nd night. Stunning views I had a great time.

Garry, Anne, Finlay, Annie and Izzy, Glasgow, 17th April 2014.

Lorna, David, Finlay, Calum and Robb, Glasgow, 19th October 2013.

 

Thank you for a very warm welcome and this lovely cosy Chalet! we have had a wonderful 1st stay on Harris, superb scenery and weather not too bad. We have been lucky enough to see the Golden Eagles a number of times, seals and of course lots of sheep! We will definitely be back.

Many thanks for all you have done this week and for making us feel so welcome.  Wonderful weather and fabulous days exploring Harris, our 3rd visit here and it won't be our last!! The Chalet and location are fabulous.

Kate, Keith, Matthew and Kipper the dog, Yorkshire, 27th July 2013.

 

Many thanks for this unforgettable week, your chalet was the perfect homestay for us. We made some great walks in this splendid landscape, Hushinish through Glen Cravadale, Great Bernera, Urgha to Rhenigidale. Cycling to Scalpay was also challenging. Nearby the chalet we enjoyed the views from Cnoc Mor and the superb beaches of Mheilen and Hushinish. We hope to come back because there's so much more to explore and to enjoy. We wish you all the best, the first Belgians who discovered your well hidden paradise.

Mark, Brigitte & Mats, Belgium, 13th July 2013.

 

A wonderful week on this beautiful Island, wall to wall sunshine, sightings of Eagles, dolphins, gannets. Lovely walks, beautiful sunsets and an amazing trip to St Kilda.

Judith & Muriel, Hampshire, 8th June 2013.

 

We have had a fabulous holiday in this cosy chalet which has proved an excellent base for exploring the wild and wonderful Isle of Harris. We have had memorable days at Luskentyre and Calanish, seen Arctic Terns diving for fish in the Ocean and a Golden Eagle soaring above the mountains. The weather has been glorious we were all sunburnt after our favourite walk straight from the back of the chalet over the hills to Cravadal and then back round the cliffs to Hushinish. We have done so much walking this week that Lola's paws are a now a little sore! Thank you for your hospitality, we hope to be back before too long.

Sarah & Iain, William, Flora and Lola the dog, Cheshire 1st June 2013.

 

We have had a wonderful week in this lovely chalet in a stunning location. Thank you for such a warm welcome and for looking after Tyler when we went to St Kilda, he has enjoyed his holiday as much as we have and certainly his comfy dog bed. We would love to return and may see an otter next time.

Davina & Howard, Essex, 25th May 2013.

 

Cold weather but the warmest of welcomes, thank you so much. From sunshine to snow with everything inbetween. Also learned a lot about sheep.

Tina & Tom, Preston, 4th May 2013.

 

Weather has been mixed but we did see the sun everyday. It's brill to be back on Harris and the chalet is so cosy and lacks nothing. Your welcome was much appreciated as was the lovely scones. Thank you and hope it won't be too long before we return.

Jacqui & Mal, 27th April 2013.

 

Once again we've had the good fortune to enjoy your kind, thoughtful hospitality while having fabulous bright days and starry nights. Only paddling this time but will go home feeling restored and recharged. Can't thank you enough.

Sandra & Witek, Aberdeen, 22nd March 2013.

 

Back again!! 25 months since our first visit, the same warm welcome, the chalet as perfect as ever, cosy, warm, well equipped, lovely, a perfect place to relax and look out on wonderful sunsets and simply enjoy. Thank you again for the many thoughtful ways in which you've made our holiday special.  As before we've loved the stunning walks and exceptional beaches. We've enjoyed seeing and hearing the rutting stags and popping along the road to see Golden Eagles, maybe next time the gannets will be back. Thank you.

Ian & Sally, 27th October 2012.

 

Thank you for a fantastic holiday, had great weather for the most part and the kids had a couple of long days on the beach, beautiful setting and friendly welcome + a surprise Birthday cake, we have really enjoyed the seclusion.

Cath, Leon, Ella & Evan, Glasgow October 13th 2012.

We had a lovely holiday, we saw a seal, Ella age 6.

 

Thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday, lovely chalet with everything we needed & more, the wonderful welcome & goodies. Will recommend to everyone, hope to be back ASAP and thanks from our dogs.

Christine, Isle of Gigha, 6th October 2012.

 

"Do you really want to spend your Honeymoon in  Scotland? in September? but it's cold there, are you sure?" we were asked several times when we talked about our plans for this very special holiday. Yes, we were sure and found indeed a pretty "cool" place to stay, rough landscape, fascinating Ocean view, perfectly equipped chalet, but at the same time we found the warmest place we could imagine, lovely welcome, fresh baked bread and scones and a special Honeymoon surprise, home from home feeling. You make this beautiful place very special and will therefore always have a special place in our hearts!!

Alex and Kathrin, Hamburg Germany, 8-22nd September 2012.

 

We have had a super week,  the chalet is perfect,  the surroundings wonderful, not going to say anything about the weather! It's been great and Maggie has been welcomed so much so, we have to come back.

Janet & Jim & Maggie the dog, Staffordshire, 8th September 2012.

 

Brilliant chalet we wanted for nothing, lovely baking much appreciated. Loved the very friendly wildlife and want to take Bear home, unfortunately he won't fit in the car!! weather has been mixed but have still been able to get out everyday, walking, mooching, beaches etc, saw dolphins from top of point mid week, many thanks for your hospitality we will be back.

Nelly, Derek & Josh, Norfolk, 25th August 2012.

 

After travelling a long 12 hours we received a lovely welcome, thank you very much for the homemade bread and scones & jam which were waiting for us when we arrived!  we have had an excellent 2 weeks here, a very welcome break away from the usual hustle and bustle back home! we had a mixture of weather but more often than notit was dry & sunny! we even got a tan! we all enjoyed the beach and we were a bit wary of the sheep to start with but they are now our friends! we managed to spot some dolphins on Thursday when we were looking through the binoculars.  We went to see the standing stones at Callanish and got lots of photos, also had a nice drive of the Island, very picturesque. We are now all fans of Harris Tweed and got some souveniers. We will miss this little jewel in the Harris crown.

Alex, Kelly, Nicole & Alastair, & George the tortoise, Stirling, 28th July 2012.

 

Thank you for the hospitality a super little place.  Lester & Denzil loved the dog bed neglecting their one from home!  Lots of great places to visit many with cakes!  Blackhouse musem a must and brave the walk over the cliffs to the Mheilen Beach - wow.  I have a new found love of sheep, they are so friendly! Thanks again for a lovely week in a lovely home.

Nick, Jenny & Brigid, Glenfinnan, 13th July 2012.

 

Thank you for the lovely welcome and delicious home baking. The chalet is so thoughtfully kitted out and very comfortable. We've all enjoyed the scenery and wildlife - basking shark, otter, seal, eagle and of course the hens, sheep & doves were the exciting part for Mac & Tosh. We'd love to return.

Ann & Douglas, Mac & Tosh the dogs, Fort William, 30th June 2012.

 

Thank you so much for your generous and kind hospitality, your thoughtful contributions to our wedding were much appreciated.  You have a lovely chalet in an idyllic location. We also loved your homemade scones and bread, a lovely welcome after a long trip. You have a special wee place here, we've had a great holiday. I'm sure we'll be back. Mirin is also sure to talk about your both, Bear, the sheep & the hens for weeks to come. Thank you again.

Paula, David & Mirin, Renfrewshire, 23rd June 2012.

 

Perfect!! what dreams are made of! We have had a wonderful week, so relaxing and peaceful. We have so been looking forward to our holiday here and it hasn't disappointed. The chalet is lovely, the views stunning and the colours!!  Thank you for ordering this wonderful weather when the rest of the UK is having rain  daily, we've hardly seen a spot! Our first visit to Harris and I don't think it will be our last, we love it here! We have enjoyed spotting the wildlife when on our numerous walks, and from the chalet and rocks across, and also being visited by the sheep and chickens, Thank you for letting us stay here.

Kathryn & Ian, Sheffield, 16th June 2012.

 

Thank you for letting us stay in the chalet, thank you too for a lovely welcome. We have visited many times but this the first time to Hushinish, dogs and children loved the beach. The late night walk to Traigh Mheilen beach was amazing worth the effort, the weather resulted in a sun burnt head!! This was the best visit we loved all of it. Thanks again.

Innes, Helen, Isobel & Innes Jr, Cogs & Lulu the dogs. 19th May 2012.

 

Thank you for your warm welcome we've loved staying in your chalet, have had the happiest week, we've felt so at home and the view, sheep, beach and cosy chalet have all added to it. We recommend the walk to the beach opposite Scarp, the walk on Scalpay to the Lighthouse and Eagle Observatory, more than anything we have enjoyed Hushinish it's a very special place thank you for sharing it with us. We very much hope to see you again. Many thanks too for making Peggy the dog welcome, we'll be taking away such happy memories.

Ellie, Karl & Peggy the dog, London 12th May 2012.

 

What a fun week we've had, arrived giggling our heads off at the ride we've had to get here including driving through the Castle grounds past the cannons pointing out to Sea (quite surreal) to be greeted with red roses, beautiful cake and Ruby Anniversary card, not to mention scones and jam, Thank you.

We couldn't have asked for better weather and took photos of Golden Eagles against a brilliant blue sky.  Visited the Shiants Islands whilst Dotty looked after Basil the dog where we had a magical day and managed to see a few Puffins (my ambition) a Sea Eagle and numerous other birds. To top it all Christine took us out to their peat beds to show us how peat is cut, taking a few pieces home to burn on our canal boat while thinking of this little piece of heaven.  

Margaret, Robert & Basil the dog, Shirley, Surrey 5th May 2012.

 

We had a super time, the chalet has everything you need and loads of extras, hosts are very friendly. So rare can you find a place that has such peace and tranquility and surrounded by beauty. We have walked for miles, around every corner a fantastic view. Hopefully we will return, thank you. Rob, Tracy, Abi, Jack & Eddie and Murphy the dogs, Scarborough, 29th October 2011.

 

A joy to stay here, very well equipt chalet with many extras thought of by the very friendly hosts who go above and beyond to ensure their guests feel welcome.  Would love to stay again and recommend strongly to others. We felt we were lucky with the weather and got out and about loads. Loved the walk to Scarp beach, day on beach here, tour of Harris, trip to Lewis and standing stones, blackhouse village. Recommend climb up Beinn Dubh fantstic views. Liz, Evan Adam and Emma, East Kilbride 22nd October 2011.

 

Thank you for a wonderful week, we are having a fantastic time here. We had a fabulous first day over at the beach opposite Scarp, glorious sunshine and we were by ourselves!!  I am also struggling not to buy lots of Harris Tweed! I hope that we will be visiting again, I will definitely be recommending Creagach Chalet to my friends. Laura & Andrew, Ambleside 24th September 2011.

 

Thank you so much for a great week, Harris is beautiful, the chalet is wonderful and so well equipt, thank you so much for your warm welcome and lovely scones. We've had a lovely time and will definetly miss Harris. The views are outstanding, thanks again for looking after Printa the dog and making our stay pleasant. To mearly be able to witness this setting is a pleasure, add to this the accommodation the trip has become a delight. Polly, Sarah, Ian, Arthur and Printa the dog, Essex 13th August 2011.

 

Harris is just as beautiful as we had remembered and we have enjoyed showing our oldest son his namesake. We had read the visitor comments on your website and hoped that it wasn't too good to be true, but having spent the week here we too have been captured by it's magic. You have been so welcoming we have been impressed with your clean and practical chalet, thanks for accomodating Darcy too. The cliff walk to the beach overlooking Scarp is a must I'm sure lots claim this but in the right weather it is the best beach in the world. This is really a fantastic spot and a really well adapted chalet with excellent hosts. Thank from us all. Gideon, Gaynor, Harris, Carroeg, Neven and Darcy Dog. Gwent, South Wales, 6th July 2011.

 

What a wonderful place, thanks for sharing it. We had a great time went hiking, explored beaches and saw the butt of Lewis, Carloway Broch and Callanish Standing Stones - all this in the best weather we ever had when we were in Scotland. We stayed at Hushinish Bay for hours on end, Scarista Beach impressed us with it's sand and Caribbean colours and above all this, are the big skies and Silence around you, it's a dream holiday for us. Thank you for delicious bread, scones and jam and for all your kindness during the week, we felt really welcome, friendly hosts, a wonderful chalet, a stunning location - nobody could wish for more. Heike, Bernd, Ben, Nick Wettstein, Berlin, Germany July 30th 2011.

 

Our week seemed to be lasting forever and now has suddenly gone! I wish we'd booked for two! we have had a wonderful time and are already planning our next visit to Creagach Chalet. Had a great day circumnavigating South Harris with delicious homemade soup and huge slabs of cake at the Skoon Art Cafe and seal watching in the bays, but our favourite days have been spent exploring the coves and beaches here, saw a grey seal under the sea cliffs, golden and ringed plovers,lots of deer and an otter in a bay near the Castle. The chalet is so comfortable and cozy to come back to. We've had breakfast outside everyday and Gins on the beach watching the sun set. Thank you Dotty and Christine for delicious scones and bread and for thinking of all those things that we forgot, the eggs were fantastic best breakfasts! will definatley be geting our bookings for next year, thank you so much Jo & Eoghan, London, April 30th 2011.

 

Thanks for such a warm and driendly welcome to a lovely chalet in a beautiful spot. We've all had a relaxing, peaceful (despite the efforts of the children) and enjoyable week, and what weather!  who would have thought the children would be swimming in the Ocean in April! the beach opposite Scarp and the cove just round from the main beach at Huisinis were both great. Huiseabhal Mor behind the chalet, a good walk saw lots of deer and Golden Plover! wish we could stay longer. Alastair & Gillian Clarkson, Edinburgh April 17th 2011.

Great body boarding on Ocean off the cover round from Huisinis bay, amazing sunsets with the sun turning really red one day, lots of wildlife around Huisinis, Sea Eagle, Ravens, Gannets, Merlin hunting Starlings (an incredible sight) Golden Plover and deer, Jamie Clarkson Aged 12.

I like the animals, Freya Clarkson Aged 7.

I liked all the lambs, Eilidh Clarkson Aged 10.

 

It has been lovely to meet you, you have been so kind to us! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your cosy chalet. Five of us managed to live ere very happily for a week. The children have been won over by the magic of this place, you are right Dotty it really is all here. Seeing Stags and even an otter up close was really special, a reminder of another world, Hope to see you again. Shona & Jon by card, London April 10th 2011.

 

Christine made us feel at home with a warm and friendly welcome and this set the tone for our holiday on Harris, the fresh baked scones and jam were delicious, Dotty & Christine have thought of everything to make our stay as cosy and comfortable as possible. The weather has been mixed but has not stopped us having a great time. Tara the dog has had a mad time on the beaches. Acommodation was very clean thanks for that too. Have a fantastic Summer, 5 star self catering. Graeme, Maureen, Caroline & Heather, Aberdeenshire, 3rd April 2011.

 

Been wet and windy but the chalet's nice and cozy & it's great just looking across the bay and watching the big waves coming in. The weather cleared and had a wonderful day in the hillsup the track from Amhuinnsuidhe climbing through Tirgon Mor (what a view from the summit) Sron Ullaval, Oreval and Cleisaval before the mist closed in, saw a pair of Golden Eagles and what an amazing starry sky that night. Thanks for everything 5 star self catering. Andrew and Maggie, Fort William, March 8th 2011.

 

What a magical and wonderful place this is. thank you for your kindness warmth and advice. Your chalet is beautiful.  We hope to see you and harris very soon when we come to stay here.  Nick ,Roselle and Alfie, Novemeber 26th.

 

We had a fantastic stay here and didn't want to go home, what a beautiful place , We feel so lucky to have found it and will definatly come back again,similar to other people who have stayed here we loved the walk to the beach opposite Scarp. the home made bread and scones and the friendly hosts. we'd love to come back again soon. Katherine and Sarah, London, Novemeber 18th.

 

Fabulas little chalet surrounded by beautiful countryside. the beach is so relaxing and the colours ( that change from minute to minute) are gorgeous. Autum is my favourite and the browns and the golds of the scenery combined with the sound of the waves is breathtaking. Thank  you so much for being so welcoming! to arrive to still warm homemade scones and bread was fab! the chalet is warm and cosy the beds so comfy! truly a little bit of paradise and so close to all the wildlife- we've seen so many herons and birds of prey, herd (and saw) the deer the handsome stag so close was amazing.we are so glad we came- and thank you for sharing. Karen, Perthshire, 5th November.

 

As they say in a famous lager advert... "This is probably the best holiday cottage in the world"  Thanks so much for the warm welcome, fresh baked bread and scones were a real treat.  Never stayed anywhere where the host has actually taken the time to collect sticks for the dog before, Maddie says thank you so much Dotty (lick).  The walk over to the beach overlooking Scarp is a real gem and has seriously got us considering a move back to the Island. In short LOVED IT, will definetly be back, thanks again for your super hospitality, this chalet is a real find.  Sarah, Ed and Maddie, Newcastle upon Tyne, October 31st 2010.

 

Sharing this fabulous location with you has been a real privilege. Mother Nature has laid on a new spectacular show everyday, with the changing light making the scenery seem as alive as the myriad of wildlife we've been lucky enough to see. Highlights include the stunning walk to the beach opposite Scarp and the hike through the Glens to emerge at the castle, seeing basking sharks just metres away from us on the beach, Golden Eagles, seals, divebombing gannets and so many different birds that we've taken up a new hobby! Thank you for your warmth and generosity thoughout our stay in your lovely chalet. Came for one week, stayed for two! never want to leave. Candy, Malc and Molly. October 1st 2010.

 

Thank you for the use of your chalet for the past week, our holiday has been all we could have hoped for. We could wax lyrical about the scenery and wildlife its the stuff that dreams are made of. your warm welcome and the many little things that you provided have greatly added to our considerable enjoyment of your cozy chalet. they reflect how well you have considered what a holiday maker would appreciate or indeed forget to bring. thank you thank you thank you, Ian and Sally Macclesfield. 11th sept.

 

Thank you very much for a fantastic stay, your hospitality is really great. we enjoyed the homemade scones and bread, wed love to come again. it was great to come back to Harris after 20 years. Sabine and Michael, Germany. 4th sept.

 

Thank you so much for the use of your lovely cozy comfy chalet, it was a beautiful little haven!! walking around Hushinish and to the beach to see Scarp was lovely, thanks for the recommendation. Thank you for your hospitality and making our first trip to Harris so fabulous. see you all soon, Cat and Tom, Stirlingshire,

 

We have stayed in many many cottages, but have never recieved such a warm welcome! fresh baked bread and scones, beat that! All the family went out of their way to make our stay special. The location is just fantastic, saw a pod of whales from the window. The isolation and tranquility made for a most relaxing holiday, while Jack and Francis, (11 & 9) climbed, explored and swam to their hearts content. Best of all, our border terrier Smudger had a fantastic stay. We only had a week but became enchanted with the Isles. We will return, and will stay longer. Thank you so much Geof, Nichola, Francis & Jack. 14th August 2010.

 

Absolutely fabulous, lovely chalet, the kids were over the moon with the beach and fishing off the rocks, best mackeral ever tasted, jumped onto the hooks. No sign of grumpy daddy!! Feel very sad to leave and everyone wants to come back. Neil, Susan, Sean & Eve 31st July 2010.

 

I had a brilliant time on the beach and caught a lot of fish, Sean Age 6.

 

Thank you for our warm welcome and many kindnesses, we have loved being here and cosying up when it rained outside only to be gloriously sunny again after a short spell. We have swum in the sea, climbed the cnoc mor to see Kilda in the distance and we had an expidition to Traigh Mheilean, fantastic memories of this place and a wonderful pace of life to enjoy it all. Kristin, Olive and Nic, Glasgow 24th July 2010.

 

I'm very sad to leave, I've enjoyed so much about our time here. Your warm welcome, great bread, cosy attractive chalet, the fabulous views - no matter what the weather. I'll be back, Many Thanks Sandra 24th July 2010.

 

Many thanks for a great week and a warm welcome, we are already big fans of the Hebrides but this week has shown us what we knew was the best can get even better. The 'piping of the cake' will stay with us for ever, lots of love and best wishes, Pam, Barry & Jeff, West Yorkshire 3rd July 2010.

Thank you so much for a wonderful week we didnt think we've ever stayed in such a well equipped cottage and had such a welcome, we've really appreciated all your efforts and kindnesses, newly baked bread & scones on arrival, complimentary dog biscuits and even our personal bagpipe recital.  Creagach Chalet is a very special place and we've all enjoyed it so much including Bonnie and Inca. Ali and Julien Sandler, Suffolk, 12-19 June 2010.

 

Thank you for letting us stay at your lovely cosy chalet, thank you for the scones and bread the cottage was nice because it was near to the beach, the lambs were cute and I will always use the lambs names which were Bullseye, Diamond, Matilda and the ones me and my sister made up was Rosebud and Patches, lots of love, Ellie/Katie Rowe age 8, Buckinghamshire, 11 June 2010.

 

What a fabulous place, how lucky we have been to join our dear friends nick and liz on their holiday here, this is truly a land of enchantment nearly a planet distinct from the earth we have come to know, may we return again and again. exploring is the fruit of the soul. Jack Mira Berkeley, Fredinia NY, 2nd June 2010.

 

Great antidote to the hurly burly of a working life, if you are feeling fit and adventurous the ultimate getaway walk is from near the power station up and over to Loch a Ghlinne and on to Hushinish. golden eagles, deer, terns nesting on an islet in the loch and one or several cuckoos all along the route. hard going at times map reading important 3.5 hours. well worth it especiallyfor the paddle at the end. otherwise just take time to breath the clean air and recharge the batteries in this magical timesless place. no need to rush it will all be waiting for you when you return.  Great hosts and very comfortable hideaway. We will be back. Nick & Liz Hayward, Northumberland

 

What can we say its been utter perfection staying in such a magical place, a photographers paradise. tranquility, true relaxation and peace everything we hoped for and more, your chalet is perfect and your hospitality 2nd to none, every little need accounted for we cant thank you enough. we certainly will send our friends in your direction, lovely to meet you all best wishes. ps well worth the walk an hour to the big beach opposite Scarp.  Lori, Jim and Tilly

 

Wow what a fabulous spot and what a great chalet, we have enjoyed our stay so much, our welcome was warm and wonderful and was a good indication of what was to follow, would have loved to stay longer. Jennifer & Graeme Bowe, Burradoo NWS Aus 15 - 20 May 2010.
