The large, gallery hallway, is also a great space to grab a book and read in silence. All our bedrooms and our dining room and snug are equipped with digital HD televisions. There is a large bathroom with a walk in shower and slipper bath which also looks out over the ocean and loch. There is a toilet located on the ground floor as well. Outside the property there are 4 distinct garden zones. There is the large lawn suitable for a whole host of your own sports adventures or relaxing in the sun and breathing in the refreshing sea air. There is a fenced area which acts as a sun trap on warm days. It includes a rare example of a Monkey Puzzle tree, our kennels and wood store and the designated smoking area (our property is non-smoking throughout including e-cigarettes). Then there is our vegetable patch. Here we grow our own potatoes, carrots, herbs and rhubarb. If there is any in season we will see what we can do for you! Finally there is the old croft. This area, uniquely preserved, has the ruins of old croft buildings that you can explore and also, usually, has a friendly sheep or two that would enjoy a slide of toast in the morning or, their favourite, a donut (plain!). The house is the perfect place to leapfrog into an amazing island holiday away from the hustle and bustle of life. You will feel the total relaxation and isolation our house offers you.More

About the neighbourhood
The Isle of Lewis Lewis is the largest and most populous of the Outer Hebridean islands, with over 6000 residents living in the main port of Stornoway alone. Bursting with world famous archaeological sites, the Island is blessed with 18hrs of summer warmth a day through June and July and bears the full impact of North Atlantic storms during the winter giving the island the best and most consistent surf in Europe. The whole landscape of the island is built for adventure with great sea cliffs to abseil and bays and islands to explore by kayak or boat. The main town of Stornoway surprises most first time visitors as it has all the amenities and industry of a mainland town, as well as a lively and vibrant social scene.
Getting around
Car Hire Car hire is available from the ferry port, the airport and in town. There are a few companies to choose from and you can find them on the interweb: Stornoway Car Hire Hebrides Car Hire MacKinnon Self Drive Lewis Car Rental Arnol Motors Island Bus Service Buses are available from Stornoway to all over the Isle of Lewis and Harris.
