|Further details indoors|
There are two bedrooms - one double, one twin room and a sofa bed in the living area. Whilst the bedrooms are not large, they are cosy with their solid oak floors and snuggled within the old stone walls your sleep will be peaceful and undisturbed. In an effort to reduce energy consumption we have opted not to install a bath, however there is a larger than average shower. The open plan living / fully fitted kitchen area provides a quality family interaction room, with the multi-fuel stove providing a focal point and economical heat source using locally sourced peat and wood.
|Further details outdoors|
The adjacent utility shed's primary use is for storing your surfing, wet weather gear and bicycles. Pets can be housed in the utility shed but are only allowed within 'An Taigh Clach' by prior arrangement. The fresh water supply within the utility shed allows easy and convenient washing of wet suits, boards, etc and there is a portable barbecue tucked away for the more balmy evenings ...... we do get a few.

The Hebrides/Skye region
The Western Isles are an island chain on the Atlantic west coast of Scotland which maintain a generally mild climate due to the Gulf Stream which washes it's shores. Lewis and Harris comprise the largest island around the UK coast with the north portion of Lewis being less mountainous than the southern end of Harris. With a rich Norse heritage featuring old grain mills, brochs and the world famous Callanish Stones just 5 miles from us there are plenty of places to explore. Don't forget the renowned Uig chessmen whose true origin is still being debated and which can be seen on occasion in the Stornoway museum.
Isle of Lewis
Sea based activities such as kayaking and surfing have grown enormously in popularity recently due to the pristine clean waters around the golden beaches. However there is no need to rush in the morning to claim your spot on your favourite beach as there is plenty room for all. Fresh water angling for the wild indigenous brown trout could easily result in double figure bags but there are also sea trout and salmon available and sea fishing for those who have the necessary 'sea legs'. Stornoway has an invigorating and challenging 18 hole golf course and there is the ultimate 9 hole links course in Harris recently played by Nick Faldo.
