“Fantastic property ideal to explore the islands”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016
people found this review helpful

We were fortunate to get this place for a week at short notice, so glad we did. situated in Siabost (Shawbost), which is on the west coast of Lewis and 30 mins drive on a very straight road (at times) to Stornoway. We were met by Iain the friendly owner who showed us into our accommodation. They stay in the house beside the accommodation and would help if there were any problems (there were none). The property has been recently renovated to a high standard. It has everything you could need apart from a TV but trust me that's a big plus staying in such a place. if you are so inclined there is a reliable wifi connection so bring a tablet or pc. There is central heating if required and a log burner fire which we used and makes the whole place cosy. A big plus for us is that it was dog friendly. There's a well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom and bedrooms with great upcycled flooring and furniture. There are lots of nice arty touches about the place too made by owners wife. Your on the right side of the island for the best beaches and 40 mins from the standing stones of Callanish and several local sites. I will definitely try to rebook when we return to Lewis. Highly recommended.
