Tranquil hostel with stunning views over Uig bay, lovely common areas - all very bright and modern. Brilliant showers etc. The only negative is they don't provide cooking basics (oil, salt, etc) or a breakfast option and there isn't much really close by so when...More

The Cowshed Boutique Bunkhouse is a new style of hostel created with a sharp eye for design and comfort. There are stunning views of the Isle and the sea through the large picture windows that surround the main living and dining space. A large wood burning stove and comfortable furniture make for a warm and cosy environment. The Cowshed has now also opened 7 pods on the hill behind the main bunkhouse, providing excellent views over the Uig Bay. They are perfect for a couple or family with small children, with 1 double bed and 1 pull out sofa bed. Each comes with a small en suite shower room, fridge, microwave, kettle.
