Further details indoors

There are two bedrooms - one double, one twin room. 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.

Further details

25% deposit payable on booking.

75% balance payable 8 weeks prior to arrival.

Pets welcome, however we would respectfully request that they be excluded from the bedrooms and hallway due to the oak flooring.

The Hebrides 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.


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.

"Best ever self catering accomadation"

Cottage was beautifull. Has been built to a very high class. Everything inside you could ever need and very good quality.It was spotless. Wood burning fire was the icing on the cake, so cosy. Cakes,lamb, whiskey and wine were a very a lovely touch. The views from the three sided windows were stunning. Very close to rugged coast line, good for walking. Brilliant holiday all round.If you are thinking about coming to the Outer Hebridies i would highly recommend this accomadation

"The views, the comfort, the peace, so good."

Our Introduction to An Taigh Clach was delightful. We were made very welcome on arrival and given a review of the property by the owners. The converted barn and extension have been completed to a high specification. Great attention has been given to every detail. The furnishings are all very comfortable, clearly carefully and tastefully chosen as are the art works within the rooms. Plenty of soft towels in the cosy shower room, fresh flowers in the rooms and a freezer full of their own croft reared lamb. A decanter with a good whiskey, red wine and with a white wine chilling in the fridge, just perfect. The home made scones and gingerbread were a real treat. What a welcome. There are many historical and interesting places and the most beautiful beaches to visit on the Isle of Lewis and Harris. We are happy to recommend this gem of a holiday house as a perfect holiday cottage with a standard that is a credit to the Island of Lewis and the Scottish Tourist Board.
