Alasdair's home, Aird Druim an Tolla, is located on the east coast of Harris in a secluded location. It is an ideal place to 'escape' from the pressures of modern urban living.
“Forget the amazing home with incredible views in a stunning remote location! It was Alasdair that truly made our one night stay a memorable one - my favorite Airbnb experience to date. To start with, Alasdair accommodated our request for early checkin. After settling into our room Alasdair took us on a short hike around his property, showed us how he dyes wool using lichengathered from his property, and pretty much entertained us all afternoon. We even shared a home cooked meal together- I cooked up the main meal and Alasdair whipped up dessert for us. The next morning, Alasdair treated us to his home made croissants for breakfast along with eggs, cereal, juice, tea, coffee etc. It was amazing! Alasdair is an exceptional host all around and I would highly recommend a stay with him!”
Crook Cottage is over 100 years old and is a traditional, hand-built, Hebridean stone cottage. The accommodation overlooks Loch Beacravik (a sea loch), so fishing is just stone's throw away; or perhaps a spot of mussel picking in one of the nearby inlets. Wildlife enthusiasts will find themselves spoiled for choice, with otters, seals, oyster catchers, and the occasional bottle-nosed dolphin all on view from the comfort of the cottage windows (bring some binoculars!).
“We spend a wonderful and Relaxing week in Gemmas cottage on the beautiful Isle of Harris. The cottage is about 20 Minutes from Tarbert on a quiet single track road - the drive there is stunning, through wonderful Harris-typical landscapes along the coast and the bays. Although the road leads right past the back of the house, it's incredible quiet (And after a few days you wonder more about the very rarely passing cars than about the frequent sheep in the front Yard ;) ) The views from every single window are staggering. You can watch otters, the landscape in the changing light during the day, the tides and wunderful sunrises. The cottage itself offers everything you might ask for: a cozy and comfortable lounge room with a fireplace and a huge kitchen, equipped with a dish washer and a washing machine in the ground floor and two big and comfortable bedrooms in the upper floor. It also has a bathtub, perfect after a rainy day :) Gemma was a perfect host - very accomodating and fair and fast reacting. When we were not able to find the hair dryer, she quickly organized one for us. We will definitely come back! :) Thank you, Gemma.”

“Wonderful accommodation in a beautiful spot on Harris. Easy to access the main sites of the island (both Harris and Lewis) whilst also enjoying a tranquil setting. Even the road to the house has lovely views. The house itself has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It is more roomy than the pictures suggest. We would definitely recommend paying extra for the hot tub. There were also nice touches such as fresh robes in the bathroom and hotel style toiletries. Communication was also very good with Tony and Eva. Highly recommend staying here and we hope to return again in the future. Xoxo”
