    “Spent a lovely week at Hona.”

    The hosts were easily available in case of any issues and had thought of pretty much everything - from dog blankets to midge repellant - we were so impressed. It was beautifully put together with lots of personal artistic touches and made for a lovely home-away-from-home stay. We had plans to cover both of the islands but ended up just seeing more of the local sites once we had a look at the big map and handy info sheets provided, wanting to do that justice and have time to relax.

    The hosts were easily available in case of any issues and had thought of pretty much everything - from dog blankets to midge repellant - we were so impressed. It was beautifully put together with lots of personal artistic touches and made for a lovely home-away-from-home stay. We had plans to cover both of the islands but ended up just seeing more of the local sites once we had a look at the big map and handy info sheets provided, wanting to do that justice and have time to relax. Would definitely recommend staying here.

The property

Hona stands on the footprint of what was the old Mangersta Mission Hall. Today a new build stands in its place, but this pays homage to the line of windows onto the road and the porch tucked out of the wind as the old Mission Hall did. The Mission Hall pews were repurposed into various pieces of furniture within the new house (and a careful eye can find the odd bit of graffiti still visible). Whilst the new building is modest and borrows from the style of the islands summer sheilings) it is extremely well insulated and boasts exceedingly high environmental credentials, making it a lovely and warm place to relax in after a day out exploring. The interior is quirky and incredibly well thought out throughout. From the large map in the hallway with laminated informative guides to take you to places of interest in the surrounding area. To the well laid out and compact kitchen allowing you to cater and dine in these relaxing surroundings. The artistic flair of the owners is evident with the interior walls adorned with unusual and decorative items. This is a property that allows you to relax and unwind. Time spent here, both inside and out,amplifies what is captivating about the Hebrides Take a wander outside after dark, on a clear night, to view the amazing night sky, filled with stars. In the garden there are two art installations commissioned by the owners. These invite visitors to lie down and gaze upwards at the ever moving cloudscapes or winter galaxies. See if you can identify the north star, spot a shooting star and gaze at the moon. If you are extremely fortunate the northern lights may even treat you to a display. The islands can be reached by flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness; or by ferry from Uig on Skye to Tarbert, or Ullapool to Stornoway. EPC Rating: Band B

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

Great Bernera 23.2. miles; Stornoway 35.9 miles; Callanish 20.5 miles.

Uig is a village resting on the edge of Uig Bay on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis and takes its name from the Norse word for ‘bay’. It is known for its rugged landscapes and attractive sand dunes with stunning views over the Atlantic. Attractions include the beautiful beaches of Valtos Peninsula and Mealista Beach plus refreshing walks along Berie and Ardroil sands, which are both rich in history (ancient hut circles have been discovered here by archaeologists and the famous Lewis Chessmen were found here) and more modern activities such as kiteboarding and windsurfing. Dining options include the impressive Uig Sands restaurant (in season) or head to the Uig Community Cafe which serves a great selection of food. There is also a distillery here at Abhainn Dearg. You can stock up on essentials at the Uig Community Shop. Just outside of the village is nearby Miavaig Pier where visitors can take boat trips to outlying islands.
