About Murdo Maclean

I have no doubt that anyone staying in this cottage will have an extremely pleasant and enjoyable visit to the Isle of Lewis.

Murdo Maclean purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Murdo Maclean chose Stornoway

The great thing about this cottage that most others don't offer is its convenience of being close to the Town Centre but also being beside the Sea.

It really does feel like being in the Countryside.

A short stroll will find you at the edge of the Sea shore, where the air doesn't get any fresher.

In the Summer watch the cruise ships sail past as they bring their passengers into Stornoway Harbour.

What makes this cottage unique

The benefits of staying in this cottage include

5 minutes walk from Main Ferry Terminal

5 minutes drive from Stornoway Airport.

Short walk into Stornoway Town Centre to enjoy the many Pubs, Cafes and Shops.

5 minutes walk to Tesco convenience store.

Sunday shopping available only a short walk away.

Nice, spacious and near to the city

  • 5 of 5

we stay one week in this house and everything was confortable and warm.

The house has everything you can need, in a quiet surround.

But very close to the town (ten minutes walk). Tesco is a 5 minutes walk.

Murdo (the owner) was very kind and lovely.

"Make your way to Stornoway!"

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was brilliant for us. The attention to detail eg all the implements for cooking and the cupboard space in the kitchen were plentiful. The overall standard of furniture and space was incredible. We certainly didn't have enough clothes with us to fill the drawers or wardrobe. The bathroom and ensuite facilities also worked very well for us. The wifi was the best we have experienced on the island and had no problems with all four of us using it and with two teenage daughters saved a lot of grief for mum and dad. The pleasant surprise (for me) being sports nut was full sky sports tv. To cap it all of we had ten days of glorious sunshine and the Hebcelt festival of music. I can't find find fault with any of what was provided for us apart from not being able to sus out how to work the music in the bathroom. The town centre is an easy ten minute walk away where some excellent eating/drinking places can be found. Well done Murdo I hope all goes well for you and your cottage remains annonymous so that it will be possible for us to return!!!!!!!!

Excellent property in a lovely town.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well situated in a quiet area within walking distance of the town centre. It is well proportioned and well laid out and well looked after. It is ideal for a small family. I will hopefully be able to return at a future date.

The cottage was like home from home. Murdo has thought of everything that you might need. Location is excellent for town for shops and restaurants. Cottage is very comfortable and warm and the boys loved that there was tvs in all rooms. We will definitely be returning. Booking process was very easy.

Isle of Bute

Calmness Personified

  • 5 of 5

Hi murdo,

Just like to say thanks for a great stay at your lovely cottage. It's in a great position and made our tour of the island a pleasure. If you need supplies everything is close at hand and its just a wee walk into town for a choice of eateries and a wee dram! We were then able to drive round the whole island taking in the outstanding scenery and views (particularly in Harris, Rodel in particular was superb, hope that doesn't make us traitors!). Had a great relaxing and peaceful time and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Stornoway. Best wishes Charlie, Susie, Alex and Maggie. Easterhouse, Isle of Bute, Pollok and Skelmorlie.

A lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a recently renovated older cottage which has been restored to a very high standard. It is a very comfortable and tastefully decorated property. Equipment and decor levels are high, there is Sky tv/wifi and even a speaker system in the ceiling of the bathroom. The property is situated less than 5 minutes drive from the ferry and is easy to find. It is also a short walk to the town centre and the local bay. There is a nearby Tesco and close by is a garage/convenience store which sells the local bakery's produce (petrol 5p less than Ullapool). The cottage fronts onto a quiet residential area and traffic flow is light. The rear aspect is private and looks over an unspoilt, natural area with the airport in the far distance. Murdo was very helpful and pleasant to deal with, we would recommend this property...
