The West Side of Lewis,it's face carved over centuries by the power of the Atlantic, is the sort of place to go if you want to feel, in the most elemental sense, alive. There is no better location to explore this precious seascape, and the...More

About the neighbourhood
There is no shop or petrol station in Carloway. The closest are either at Barvas or Cameron Terrace/Leurbost where you can get a good selection of food, wines and spirits and both have petrol/diesel. They also carry a diverse range of other goods – from midge repellent. There are fishing rods for use, beach furniture and numerous children's toys kept in the detached garage. Wi Fi is also available and fishing gear to surf equipment (Barvas). In Stornoway there are two supermarkets – Tesco near the ferry terminal and the Coop on the way out of town toward the west side. The Doune Braes Hotel provides meals (best to book) and takeaway food. It has a bar and lounge. Forty North (Bragar) does the same but you need to pre-order takeaway and coll

How to get there
Airport: Stornoway: 33.0 km
Ferry: Stornoway: 28.0 km
Ferry: Most people travel to Lewis by sea using Caledonian McBrayne. They operate twice daily services from Ullapool to Stornoway, or alternatively they operate a shorter ferry crossing between Uig (Isle of Skye) and Tarbert (Harris). The Ferry fares are really competitive as opposed to flying and hiring a car. Carloway is about 24 miles from Stornoway, and about 45 miles from Tarbert. Follow signs for Càrlabhagh (Carloway) on the A858. Remember to look out for the Gaelic name on road signs. When you reach Carloway you pass over the only flyover in the Western Isles and turn hard left heading for the pier signposted Cidhe Càrlabhagh. Follow the road to the right and it is the last house on the right with red garage door.
