Getting around

Getting around is very easy. The bus stops only a matter of a few meters from the gate of the house as it turns on its way back to town again, usually at intervals of 20-30 mins It simply could not be more convenient. Taxis drivers are familiar with the house too and it's reasonably cheap. If you are bringing your own bikes, it is about half an hour to cover the 7.1 miles and mostly flat to the centre of town. By car (recommended), a quick tour of the island is to head towards town, onwards to Barvas and take a right to Ness if you've time, or left to Carloway. At Carloway, follow the road to Uig for some remote but fantastic sights, or turn towards Luerbost and continue round the circle back to town.

Very Good

“Loads of space, really well-equipped, responsive landlord - and great views!”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2017

Fantastic views across the says and South to Harris and the Shiants. Well equipped and landlord quick to respond to query. Dog friendly

Owner's reply: Thank you for your encouraging comments!

“Perfect location to explore the whole island”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2016

We were four adults and four children flying in from London to explore Lewis and Harris by car. Druim Mor is located just outside Stornoway with lovely views over the sea and the bay in front of it. It takes less than 10 minutes by car to get to the city centre, from where one can choose any direction to explore the island. If not driving, the bus to Stornoway stops 25 metres from the property. The cottage itself is big, easily accommodating our party with room to spare. It has all the amenities required for a comfortable stay, including Wi-Fi for those who wish to spend time on the internet. The owner John is very friendly and was on hand by mobile phone should we have required anything. The land between it and the sea is public, and we wandered around above the cliffs looking at seals in the water below, and the birds nesting along the steep cliff faces. If you want to be very remote, this is probably not the accommodation for you. However, if you want lovely views, the sense of remoteness, but close enough to supplies from town, Druim Mor is a great place to stay at.

Owner's reply: Charl I'm glad you loved the view and the location. I remember first arriving at the house and, as soon as I saw the views, I decided to buy it even before I went inside! Families love the house because the space, inside and out, allows them to bring other relatives with them. Sometimes they meet up with friends and family on the island and bring them back to the house for a meal. Hopefully you can come back again some time! John
