The most northerly of the Outer Hebrides and the largest, The Isle of Lewis is the most welcoming of places.  Warm hospitality is just as embedded as the beautiful beaches, the wildlife, the plant life, the many historical sites and the wonderfully clean air.

The local area offers the stunning Bostadh Beach and Iron Age Fort, some great fishing Lochs (including Loch Geal on the doorstep of Lochan View Cottage) and ample opportunity to seek out the local wildlife.

Stornoway is a picturesque 30 minute drive away and surprises most first time visitors with its range of facilities and vibrant social scene, host of shops, pubs, restaurants and regular events.   
The Isle of Lewis

Lewis is  home to many world famous historical sites.  As well as the Iron Age Fort, visit the Dun Carloway Broch(built around the 1st century BC) and the breathtaking Neolithic Callanish Standing Stones, which predate the Egyptian Pyramids.  


For the more adventurous, sea kayaking, climbing, sailing and surfing are a few of the many adventure activities available on the island.  The rocky reefs, beautiful beaches and cliffs that characterise the Lewis Coastline help to create some of the best surfing conditions in Europe.
