Good Hotel Guide Review

A ‘cosy spot’ in a remote position overlooking Langass sea loch, Amanda and Niall Leveson Gower’s family-friendly former sporting lodge is ideal for guests in search of fresh air and ‘magnificent scenery’. This corner of North Uist, in the Outer Hebrides, is ‘a paradise for wildlife’; the ‘friendly hosts’ are helpful with suggesting walks and providing maps. Ask for a tumbler of Harris gin in the traditional-feel bar (a wood-burning stove is lit here in cool weather); from the ‘light, comfy, conservatory-like sitting room’, take in the panorama across the water to the peak of Ben Eaval. In the main building and a modern extension reached via a covered walkway, ‘lovely’ bedrooms are made homely with smart tartan cushions, rugs on wooden floors, and ‘extra-fancy throws’ on the bed. (Two spacious rooms accommodate a family.) Dinner brings a ‘fabulous’ menu rich in local game, fish and shellfish, accompanied by vegetables and herbs from the garden. ‘The local hand-dived scallops are particularly good.’ There’s plenty of diversion for active sorts: fishing, cycling, kayaking; otter walks to the edge of the loch. (Philip Bright, and others)

Guest comments

'Lovely comfortable room in the Lodge, fabulous food : especially the local hand-dived scallops, friendly staff, and magnificent scenery with wonderful wildlife. ' - Philip Bright - May, 2017
'The best stop of our 'grand tour'. A beautiful hillside room with view of loch and garden. Charming staff and wonderful food, Lovely beeaches and scenery. Complete peace. ' - Margaret Wall - May, 2012
'A handsome white-painted sporting lodge with a separate, slightly barn-like, modern extension set into the hillside and linked by a covered walkway and glassed reception lobby. Our ground-floor ‘hillside’ bedroom was spacious, stylishly furnished, with large comfy twin beds and armchairs, wooden floors and rugs, French windows on to a little terrace with a lovely outlook of garden – and well-stocked children’s play area and hills beyond. A good bathroom. The main house is also stylishly decorated. A cosy bar with a traditional feel and wood-burning stove, a bright, airy dining room, a light, comfy conservatory-like sitting room. Fabulous views across Loch Langass. Dinners were good to very good: excellent ingredients (local fish, meat, etc), sometimes slightly over-worked. Staff were extremely efficient and friendly, and Amanda Leveson Gower was helpful in suggesting walks and providing maps. T ' - SM - August, 0207
