Further details indoors

There is one comfortable double bedroom upstairs and a twin room downstairs. You may not need the central heating on in summer time but if you like it hot, then the traditional solid fuel stove in the kitchen will heat the radiators and do the trick . We will provide you with plenty of wood, coal or peat to keep you going.The dining room and living room boast south facing views over Loch Carloway. You may wish to try your hand at cooking on top of the traditional range but if not, don't worry as the modern kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and gas hob.

Further details outdoors

The patio table and four chairs will allow you to soak up your outside surroundings in comfort. Let us know if you like cooking in the great outdoors and we will make sure barbecue equipment is available for you.

The garden is fully enclosed so children can play outside happily. In spring, they may want to take a 50m stroll up the road to see the wee lambs at play. In summer it should be easy to spot salmon jumping in the loch and if you are lucky you may see an eagle soaring over head.

The Hebrides region

The Isle of Lewis is the most north-westerly island in a long chain of islands known as the Outer Hebrides or the Western Isles. Lewis has a unique landscape and culture and is bursting with world famous archaeological sites. It is attached via land and road to the island of Harris to its south. This allows easy access to arguably some of the most stunning beaches in Europe.

Gaelic is spoken along side English and many islanders are still involved in the traditional tasks of cutting peat (turf) for fuel, weaving tweed, crofting and fishing. In summer the machair is carpeted in a blanket of wild flowers.


Lewis is the most populated island in the Outer Hebrides with the main town of Stornoway on its eastern shores. Stornoway has fantastic facilities including shops, restaurants, pubs, a sports centre with swimming pool, golf club and a modern theatre/arts centre.

The west coast of Lewis is bathed in the North Atlantic swell and as a result, has the most consistent surf in Europe.

Lewis is etched with sea lochs, islands and inlets making it a paradise for sea kayakers.

It is quick and easy to obtain a permit from the Carloway Angling Club to try your hand at salmon fishing. Or if you prefer there are lochs teaming with brown trout.

For golf fans there is access to two unique courses. Stornoway Golf Course is a full eighteen hole parkland course on the edge of Lews castle grounds. The Harris course is a nine hole links type course with beautiful Atlantic views. Both courses welcome visitors and the green fees are very reasonable.

Cyclist will enjoy the scenic roads which are relatively traffic free and can easily tour round the many archeological sites which Lewis has to offer; the Neolithic Callanish Stone which pre date Stonehenge, the Pictish Carloway Broch, the Norse mill to name but a few. The Arnol blackhouse and Gearrannan Blackhouse Village museums offer an interesting insight into crofting life in Lewis during the last centuries.

There are numerous art galleries and craft shops on the island which sell many unique locally made products. Among them is the Morvern Gallery on the northwest coast which is surely one of the lovliest galleries in Scotland.

Eating out is a favourite pastime in Lewis so there are numerous high quality cafes and restaurants where you can sample home baking or local sea food and game.
