This is a very late posting, but our stay at Dollag's Cottage was excellent and I want to thank the owner, however belatedly, for her welcome, her baking and for the terrific comforts of the cottage even though it's so many months ago. The location...More

How to get there
Airport: Stornoway: 25.0 km
Ferry: Stornoway: 25.0 km
The Isle of Lewis is surprisingly well connected with regular ferry sailings from both Ullapool (about 1.5 hours drive from Inverness) on the west coast of Scotland and also from Uig on the Isle of Skye. The Uig ferry docks in Tarbert on the Isle of Harris which is connected to Lewis and so it is a simple matter to drive up from Harris. There are also very good air links with Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh and car hire can be arranged allowing you to pick up your car at Stornoway Airport. The Isle of Lewis, and the attached Isle of Harris, have a good bus service with the town of Stornoway acting as the hub for Lewis. There is a bus stop only a few hundred yards from Dollag's Cottage. Roads in the Hebrides are good though a few areas of single track road still remain and t... more
