Kabuis Chalet

Chalet -

Ideal for, say, a young family, the cottage also boasts a decked, verandah area to the south and west where guests may particularly enjoy sitting of an evening before one of our celebrated local sunsets.

In both units linen and towels are provided and the price is, of course, inclusive of full central heating and gas-cooking; electricity in the chalet, being a separate building, is metered. The facilities are well maintained and the Macleod's 'welcome package' for all new arrivals includes fresh flowers and fruit, with the choice of tea and coffee and a selection from the day's...

About the neighbourhood
There have been people here in Shawbost almost as long as there have been people. The remains of ancient settlements have been unearthed at nearby Dalmore and shards of pottery from the Beaker Folk are still regularly unearthed along the shore and even in the local cemetery at Bragar.

The original Shawbost community lived hard by the beach, where the mounds of their tumbled homes can still be seen by the lane from South Shawbost. As they exhausted the nearby stocks of peat - their only fuel - the village moved progressively inland. New Shawbost, for instance, was laid out by Sir James Matheson only in 1850 and, a century later, a street of new houses was built up the hill at Grinnavat, South Shawbost.

Some traditional wells are still in use and are said to have healing powers; the remain...

How to get there
By air from London, Glasgow, Inverness with either British Airways or Flybe. Cal Mac run ferries from Ullapool to Stornoway, also from Uig in Skye to Tarbert in Harris. Refer to British Airways, Flybe or CalMac websites for up to date timetables.

Should you wish to fly to Lewis there are many Hire Car Companies that will welcome you at the Airport, our local one is Arnol Motore gain can be found on website.

By sea: Most freight and probably the majority of visitors reach Lewis by Caledonian MacBrayne's ferry service from Ullapool. The well-appointed ISLE OF LEWIS - launched in 1995 - is the flagship of the CalMac fleet and makes two or three double-runs each day from Monday to Saturday. There is no Sunday service. Ullapool itself is just over an hour from Inverness and within five r...
