Description from 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

25% deposit payable on booking.

75% balance payable 8 weeks prior to arrival.

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

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 and are 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.

Very Good

“Relaxing holiday”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2018

Only 15mins walk from Garenin Village, and fairly central for a drive around the rest of the island, this well kitted out house was just perfect for a relaxing break. All kitchen ware of a high standard, a peat burning fire, books, games and a great welcome pack. Lots of homely touches with a bit of luxury too. You can lie at night in your cosy bed and watch the stars through the skylight window above - amazing. Val & Calum made us very welcome. Would recommend to family and friends for future visits and hope to return.

“Best ever self catering accomadation”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2012

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.”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2012

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.
