Borrowdale near Carloway. Near to Blackhouse village which also has a great coastal walk. About 2 km from a Brock. The callanish stones are about 10km and are a must for any visitors to the island. Plenty of amazing views all around the coast and beautiful but quiet beaches. The location of the cottage means your within easy reach of...

Additional amenities & feature info
There is one comfortable double bedroom upstairs and a twin room downstairs. You may not need the central heating on in summer time but if you like it hot, then the traditional solid fuel stove in the kitchen will heat the radiators and do the trick . We will provide you with plenty of wood, coal or peat to keep you going.The dining room and living room boast south facing views over Loch Carloway. You may wish to try your hand at cooking on top of the traditional range but if not, don't worry as the modern kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and gas hob.<BR>

About the neighborhood
Lewis is the most populated island in the Outer Hebrides with the main town of Stornoway on its eastern shores. Stornoway has fantastic facilities including shops, restaurants, pubs, a sports centre with swimming pool, golf club and a modern theatre/arts centre.

The west coast of Lewis is bathed in the North Atlantic swell and as a result, has the most consistent surf in Europe.

Lewis is etched with sea lochs, islands and inlets making it a paradise for sea kayakers.

It is quick and easy to obtain a permit from the Carloway Angling Club to try your hand at salmon fishing. Or if you prefer there are lochs teaming with brown trout.

For golf fans there is access to two unique courses. Stornoway Golf Course is a full eighteen hole parkland course on the edge of Lews castle grounds. The Ha...
