From the owner

One of the most stunning locations for a rural break could find you relaxing at Taigh Granaidh (Granny's House), a comfortable property situated on a working croft in the village of Breasclete on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Sleeping up to 6, the house has two double bedrooms and one twin bedded room. There is a large kitchen / dinette, a shower room downstairs and a bathroom with shower upstairs, and a comfortable sitting room with spectacular views over Loch Roag.

Beside Taigh Granaidh is the croft "loom shed" for Harris Tweed weaving.

Trout fishing can be tried on one of the many nearby lochs and you have your choice of a myriad of unspoilt beaches within easy reach.

The area is rich in archaeology. Callanish Standing Stones, reported to be older than Stonehenge, is 5 minutes away by car. Travel north to visit the ancient fortress of Doune Broch in Carloway, explore Garenin Blackhouse Village in Carloway, the Norse Mill in Shawbost and the Blackhouse in Arnol. All within 15 miles of Granny's.

A short walk from the croft is Sgianault, a rocky beach, where you can catch the low tide and explore the rock pools and you may just find a scallop on the sandy shore. Birdlife is also in abundance with meadow pipits and wagtails, buzzards, oystercatchers, lapwings, redshanks, dunlin, cormorant, black headed and common gulls and more to be seen on the route.

Dalmore and Dalbeg are the closest beaches. Swept by the westerly winds straight off the Atlantic Ocean, Dalmore is a popular surfing destination. We would also recommend visiting Bosta on Great Bernera where there is a reconstruction of an Iron Age house open during the summer. Reef and Ardroil Sands in Uig are also well worth a visit but that's just scratching the surface. Bosta, Reef and Ardroil are all safe for swimmers.

Sunday is a special day here where most folk enjoy a day off from work and consequently most shops are closed. There are some hotels and restaurants open in town and out in the country and of course the beaches and countryside are there for you to explore.
