Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Barr na Creage offers luxurious self catering accommodation in the Outer Hebrides. We are located in the coastal village of Skigersta, in the north of Lewis. This is an idyllic location and a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding areas, see the Callanish Standing Stones, Carloway Broch, and many other tourist attractions as well as visit other islands in the Hebrides.

There are a wide range of activities on the island which vary throughout the year and there is something to suit everyone be it bird watching, hill walking, wildlife, surfing or fishing just to name a few.

Of course some may prefer to just sit back, relax, and enjoy the stunning views. Barr na Creage has spectacular views looking out over Skigersta bay and across the Minch to Cape Wrath as well as overlooking the Skigersta pier and the cladach (sea shore) which is a short walk from the house. The surrounding moorlands are designated peat lands and are a haven for many kinds of birds and wildlife. There are several beautiful sandy beaches and machair with a wealth of flora and fauna in the surrounding area providing some of the finest scenery in Lewis, combining machair, beach and cliffs with a wealth of sea birds including the White Billed Diver.

The area is well-known for its wildlife, including many types of sea birds nestling among the cliffs, and you may even spot the odd dolphin, porpoise (or even Killer Whale) right from your window!

Located in the small, peaceful village of Skigersta, Barr na Creage is a three bedroom house that has been newly refurbished to a very high standard. It is well furnished and fully equipped with everything that you need for a comfortable stay. There is ample parking space for cars and a patio with disabled access area overlooking the bay.
