We are happy to accept midweek booking but we would be looking for a minimum stay of 3 days. There is a shed adjacent to the cottage for storing bikes etc. and where you will find additional supplies of fire wood and coal.More

About the neighbourhood
Shawbost is a village by the shore. We have a beautiful beach on the doorstep and a lovely village to wander around. We have coastal walks, easy hill walks, beaches and golden eagles, and loads iof sheep.....
Getting around
Shawbost is an excelle t location for sightseeing and away from the hassle bussle of Stornoway. Shawbost has many nice walks and attractions within walking distance but a car is essential for getting to the main attractions of Callanish Stones, Arnol Blackhouse, Carlowayway Broch etc
