About Rainbow Cottage

“Judy Garland sang ‘Somewhere over the rainbow is a place…………..’ She was wrong, it was not over the rainbow, it was at the Rainbow. The cottage she never found. She got lost during her search but we were fortunate to find that place where our dreams came true.”

Combine this with a warm welcome from the owners who live nearby and you are in for a most wonderful and special time during your stay here.

Enjoy the most spectacular sunsets from the living room and the ever-changing and mesmerising views of the Minch with Harris, Lewis and the Uists in the distance.

If you like stargazing then Rainbow Cottage is fantastic. With no light pollution you can enjoy fabulous night views of the moon, planets and stars.

In 2013 Travel Magazine  stated that Waternish is the best place in the world to view the sunset……… beating off competition from locations in the Maldives, Thailand, France and Italy. See the photos taken from Rainbow Cottage  on the ‘Worth a Thousand Words’ page to see what they mean………………
