Holiday Rental House
Seaview House is situated in the village of Tobson, on the Island of Great Bernera, located on the west coast of Lewis. The house was built at the beginning of the 20th century and is still owned by the MacDonald family. A full refurbishment was carried out in 2012 and the property is now available for rent as a comfortable retreat to enjoy the perfect break ‘”Away from it all”. Peace, tranquility, fresh air, scenic walks, beautiful sunsets and starry nights are only some of the great experiences you can enjoy for free. There is a quiet beach at the end of the village only 2 minutes walk from the house and the lovely Bosta beach only 10 mins drive away. There is a small shop/post office & fuel station in the neighbouring village of Breaclete with the town of Stornoway only a 45 minutes dr...Seaview House is situated in the village of Tobson, on the Island of Great Bernera, located on the west coast of Lewis.
