About the neighbourhood
For many visitors the highlight of any visit to Lewis is always the chance to see the world famous standing stones at Callanish, the neighbouring village to Breasclete. Over 5000 years old, there are several stone circles in the area with the main site in the form of a cross with centre circle around a burial chamber. Travel north for more sites of interest to the ancient fortress of Doune Broch in Carloway, explore Garenin Blackhouse Village in Carloway, the Norse Mill in Shawbost and the Blackhouse in Arnol. All within 15 miles of Granny's.<BR><BR>Within easy reach of the Taigh Granaidh are several beautiful beaches.
