Definitive comfort and conviviality in a perfect location? A host beyond all measure!
Situated conveniently close to the centre of town, this is a wonderfully comfortable and well-appointed three-bedroomed house, that is more like a high quality, period hotel, rather than your normal rented accommodation. It has all modern facilities, including? for many? the essential WiFi, induction hob and microwave oven, yet retaining its period charm and elegance. You can certainly imagine yourself taking a step back in time, living here for a week, as we did. Mr McCleod was the most definitively and exquisitely perfect of hosts, picking us up and returning us to the airport, attentive to our every need and eager to make sure we had the best possible experience? not only in his property, but also in Stornoway itself, driving us around all the key locations in town, when we arrived. The house was sparkling clean and the beds immensely comfortable in all bedrooms, with lots of storage space and?what?s often lacking in old properties? lots of electrical sockets for all our electronic devices and chargers needed these days. The living room was quite delightful and atmospheric at night, with all the multiple subdued lighting and glowing fire effects. Mr McCleod also provided a starter breakfast, including bacon, bread, eggs, butter and milk? together with other essential ingredients, including his wife?s homemade, delicious and not too sharp, genuine Scottish marmalade, to a traditional recipe. Personally, being a marmalade fan, I had that every morning! The kitchen was lacking in nothing? except a good ceramic teapot, that we were delighted to buy for the house and leave behind when we left. We deliberately chose one that had the best pouring spout we could find, so please feel free to make the best tea in Scotland using such an iconic Art Deco design. Just a small point, but so useful . . . There were multiple sets of door keys for everyone staying to use independently, so no complicated planning of key exchanges or all that messing around with key-boxes and combination locks outside, that you see so often nowadays. So, in summary, I would give this property, Mr McCleod? and his wife?s traditional Scottish marmalade the highest recommendation possible. Trust me . . . I?m a doctor! Les Dr Les Willmore

Cosy house and lovely owner
We stayed in St. Duthus house for five weeks in February/March 2018. The spacious house is well equipped, cosy and located in the centre of Stornoway. We arrived late in the evening and were happy to find some basic food in the kitchen, provided by Murdo, the lovely owner, for late arrivals. Murdo was also very helpful when we realised that we forgot some of our equipment in one of the cupboards on our departure and sent it on to our address in Germany. Thank you very much!
