Excellent house, there was nothing it didn't have. Nearby beautiful beaches and places to visit. Valerie was a star in sending info for our trip and a fantastic host. We thoroughly enjoyed our family trip. So much to do and see in Lewis and Harris.

The Stone Cottage situated in Carloway Isle of Lewis was a peaceful haven with an incredibly well equipped home. We wanted for nothing. We enjoyed a freshly cooked lobster provided by Callum and Val who were very friendly and helpful.There was also plenty to see,...More

Additional amenities & feature info
There are two bedrooms - one double, one twin room. Whilst the bedrooms are not large, they are cosy with their solid oak floors and snuggled within the old stone walls your sleep will be peaceful and undisturbed. In an effort to reduce energy consumption we have opted not to install a bath, however there is a larger than average shower. The open plan living / fully fitted kitchen area provides a quality family interaction room, with the multi-fuel stove providing a focal point and economical heat source using locally sourced peat and wood.

About the neighbourhood
Sea based activities such as kayaking and surfing have grown enormously in popularity recently due to the pristine clean waters around the golden beaches. However there is no need to rush in the morning to claim your spot on your favourite beach as there is plenty room for all. Fresh water angling for the wild indigenous brown trout could easily result in double figure bags but there are also sea trout and salmon available and sea fishing for those who have the necessary 'sea legs'. Stornoway has an invigorating and challenging 18 hole golf course and there is the ultimate 9 hole links course in Harris recently played by Nick Faldo.
