Getting around

Take a walk out to the hill, Ben Bragar, climb to the top and be rewarded with views of the island and on a clear day you can see the flannan isles, we have seen golden eagles and mountain hare, out on the moor. Walk into the shore and enjoy the soft sandy beach , safe for swimming, see the oystercatchers, pied wagtails, curlews, seals and maybe an otter. Back at the croft you will hear the cuckoo in the spring, the corncrake in the summer, and in between the displaying lapwings, the flutter of the snipe wings and the song of the skylark. The West Side Coastal walk passes Shawbost. It stretches from Barvas and ends at the black house village at Garinin, taking in spectacular coastal views and passes though beautiful sandy beaches at Dalbeg

Very Good

“Fantastic cottage in a spectacular location to explore Lewis.”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2017

We stayed in this cottage for my birthday week and had a fantastic time. The cottage is perfectly located to explore Lewis. The cottage is immaculate and has absolutely everything you would want for a holiday. The kitchen is fabulous and well stocked for cooking. The bathroom has a great shower and a luxurious bath to relax in. The hosts give plenty of information on the run up to the holiday and are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The scones left for us were delicious! We watched an incredible sunset from the garden and the local beach is lovely. We went to see two weavers on the next road over who make Harris Tweed which was a real highlight. There is a fantastic restaurant (40 North) just 5 minutes drive away serving fresh local produce to eat in or takeaway - we did both - highly recommended! If we find ourselves on Lewis again (we hope to!) we will stay again. Thank you!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review, the information is great for our future guests, everyone appreciates good recommendations , we could not get better advertising for Burnvale and the Island. Many thanks Gillian and John

“Wonderful accommodation, best I've stayed in.”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2017

Gillian and John provided a spotless, tastefully decorated property with large rooms and all the utensils you could ever need in the kitchen. The DAB radio was never off while I was in there. For wildlife lovers I spotted Merlin, lapwing, Snipe, Curlew, to name a few, all from the comfort of the kitchen window and a view to sea breakers rolling in on the shore of Shawbost. The coast here is breathtaking, as the wild Atlantic meets the cliffs and many beaches along the stretch between the Butt of Lewis to Callanish, just stunning in all weather. Oh I never mentioned the bath! Fabulous with a dram or glass of wine and a book. Excellent hosts, excellent property. Would love to stay again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your fantastic review, this is our first full year letting our property and your review is much appreciated , really glad you enjoyed your stay and your time in Shawbost. Kind regards Gillian
