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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Brilliant home, great location,brilliant scenery and friendly people
The property is located approx 15 minutes from the main town of Stornoway which is well served with shops and supermarkets. The property itself is in a very quiet location without being remote, has excellent views over the bay. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped, the bathrooms are spotless with excellent shower and bath facilities. The owners have missed nothing when providing the facilities and have been helpful and friendly throughout the booking and arrival/departure process. Check out the Butt of Lewis and Callanais which are only 20 minutes away from the property and the white beaches at Uig which are glorious.

BEAUTIFUL ISLAND HOME FROM HOME.
The house is in a stunning location, beautiful view of the loch and the sea, the property has everything you need as if you were in your own home. My grandchildren loved the sheep and the baby lambs at the bottom of the garden and also feeding the neighbour's chickens, very friendly people. We will visit again..

Still just as good as our first visit in 2014
The views from the house are amazing, you can never tire of them. The house is only 12 miles from Stornoway so you never feel too isolated. We return year after year, its our favourite place to go, and the island welcome is what we look forward to the most.

Lovely stay despite the weather
We were a group of 7 and we absolutely loved it here. Beautiful rooms with beautiful views of the coast as well as plenty of indoor entertainment, which was really needed because of the weather. It's also only 20 minutes from Stornoway so the shops were easy to get to. Would definitely stay here again if we make our way back to Lewis.

Many thanks for your kind words. Fresh from 3000 miles of Atlantic Ocean that weather is always unpredictable! We are so glad you had a great stay and look forward to welcoming you any time. Safe travels.

Fantastic Hebridean Holiday
We were a group of 8 including a 5year old and a baby of 4 months (and 2 black labs.). The weather turned out to be near perfect with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The stunning beaches and changeable landscapes were so beautiful. The accommodation was perfect , spacious, comfortable and was of a high standard. There was plenty to do, including fishing on the Loch Barvas and its river. The week went past so quickly.

Fabulous first family trip to the Island
Have just spent New Year at this wonderful home and had a great time, even if the roaring storms kept us mostly indoors! That was probably the best thing about the home. Even in the wild weather the house was a great vacation and a good escape from everyday life. The house is large and comfortable and certainly cosy. All the rooms are in great condition (and given the house is new onto the market that probably isn’t a surprise). Big bedrooms and a great dining space but overall the lounge, with its woodburner, was the best space (albeit it was so warm outside that we didn’t actually use the woodburner). The outdoor space is expansive and, even in the strong winds we could explore the adjacent croft, which is part of the home, and also take a great walk to an old ruined house along the shore. In fact it took us 5 minutes to walk to the edge of the Atlantic ocean and watch the giant rollers crash onto the bay. The hosts were great and would hope to keep in touch. You keep a great home and it deserves to be experienced by others. Could sit and look at that view forever. Overall great value for money and I would definitely take the family back to experience the island in summer. If I do, I will update my review!

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. Find out more at the Council website or we can provide details on enquiry. Taxis Taxi service is available from Stornoway to all over the island.

Access
Car advised
How to get there
Getting to our Island is an adventure in itself and should be fully enjoyed. The best way to soak it all up is to come by Caledonian MacBrayne ship from either Ullapool (2.5 hrs) or via Skye and Harris (1.5 hrs sail time but longer drive). You can also fly from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Aberdeen and Manchester straight to Stornoway, the Islands capital. When you make your booking we can provide all the travel information you need and also the precise location details. A car is definitely a good idea. There are bus services but they can limit your ability to get around and see everything.
