    We stayed here for a week in April 2019. What a fantastic cottage!! The cottage itself is extremely well equipped, spotlessly clean, warm, brand new kitchen, great views and walking distance from several beautiful beaches.
    The location is ideal for cycling and walking. We have 3 young children and they loved the hens on the croft, catching crabs, watching the planes land at the airport nearby and playing on the beaches. Water still chilly so not quite brave enough for swimming. They have named Barra…..Barrabados!!

    A lovely review via email from Allison.

    “Just to say thanks for rental of your cottage. If you want a review for your web site mine would be-

    Comfy cottage in a great location. There were just two of us and the dog and we enjoyed sitting in the porch in the evening listening to some tunes after enjoying the early evening sun down at the beautiful white beach- which is just a stone’s throw away. Even managed a swim although a little chilly in May. Modernised kitchen very well equipped and heating meant always cosy. Great walks from the door and easy to walk to “Barra International Airport” for a coffee. We hired electric bikes to explore the island which were great given quite hilly and windy. The man from Barra Bikes was very helpful and delivered to the door, we even had a trailer for thedog!“

    We had a really great stay in this cosy cottage and were made so welcome. Taigh Denny is well equipped and were spotlessly clean, there were lots of information and maps about Barra & The Hebrides. What a lovely , quiet place in the middle of the machair with all the wildflowers and the nearby beaches which are just exeptional….The People of Barra were very friendly and helpfull.
    Thank You Libby – we were really happy wit Our holiday Choice ! May be we will be back in BARRA-DISE some day.

    Five of us stayed here in May, this being our first time visit to Barra. What an amazing place. The cottage has everything you could ever need and more..some very friendly chickens! Its location is ideal for walks along the wonderful sandy beaches and for getting around the island. We had a super time and so did our 3 teenagers. The weather was wonderful too. Thank you Libby for the wonderful accommodation and for keeping us up to date with ferry news..much appreciated.
    We highly recommend both the cottage and Barra for your next holiday.

    We stayed at Taigh Denny during the last week of August. In spite of a very changeable weather, we really enjoyed coming back to Barra, as the cottage is warm and cosy. We liked the decoration, the quality of the kitchen appliances and the many TV channels. But the main good point of the cottage is its location, with the beautiful beaches of Eoligarry accessible by a gate a few yards away from the garden. As Barra and Vatersay are rather small islands, you can visit every place easily and come back to a very quiet haven in the evening and enjoy the fantastic seafood from Northbay.

    Had a wonderful week at Taigh Denny. The cottage is very clean, warm, and comfortable and very well equipped for all your needs. The location is completely stunning and there is lots to see and do on Barra. If you love walking or cycling, beaches, cakes, gin, wildlife, clean clear air, great hospitality and much more, then Barra is a top holiday location and Taigh Denny is a top place to stay.

    Just a week in this fabulous location, sadly, but one we will remember. Inside, the cottage was warm, comfortable, tastefully decorated, well equipped and spotlessly presented. Outside was almost unreal, with constant birdsong – corncrake, lapwing, skylark and the starlings mimicking them all! The crofts were covered with primroses and the sandy beaches were magical, calm on the east side and wild with surf on the west. A wonderful Outer Hebridean experience. We also appreciated Libby’s friendly, low-key booking system – quite a change from the larger agencies that dominate the market.
