From the owner

'An Taigh Clach' (Gaelic for the Stone House) boasts stunning views, with the Atlantic to the west, the hills of Uig and Harris to the south and the croft land of Carloway directly outside your doorstep all of which can be viewed from the living area which offers a 180 degree panoramic view. Being on the West coast of Lewis, we are ideally situated for exploring the whole island and especially the many local sites of interest such as the world famous Callanish Standing Stones, the Broch at Doune Carloway, Garenin Blackhouse village and the restored Norse Mill. With numerous outdoor pursuits available nearby there is always plenty to do or you can just calm down, chill out, sit back and watch the clouds go by........................ after all ................... this is YOUR holiday !!!

Further details

A 25% deposit is payable on booking.

Balance payable 8 weeks prior to arrival. Full payment is required at time of booking for stays of less than 7 nights.

Pets welcome, however we would respectfully request that they be kept off the furniture, be excluded from the bedrooms and hallway due to wooden flooring and the garden area is cleared of all pet fouling before your departure.

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. 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.
