About the neighbourhood
Shawbost is a village by the shore. We have a beautiful beach on the doorstep and a lovely village to wander around. We have coastal walks, easy hill walks, beaches and golden eagles, and loads iof sheep.....
Getting around
Shawbost is an excelle t location for sightseeing and away from the hassle bussle of Stornoway. Shawbost has many nice walks and attractions within walking distance but a car is essential for getting to the main attractions of Callanish Stones, Arnol Blackhouse, Carlowayway Broch etc
