Smell some Scottish Peat! (for you to light yourself for fun, the room doesn't smell of peat)
A microwave and mini fridge are hidden away in the wardrobe.

This listing is for a one room rental with shared bathroom.

We are located just 3 minutes walk from a beautiful isolated sandy shore where u can discover caves, shells & fresh water springs (when the tide is out) & walk a few miles to Coll beach (when it's very quiet, you may see salmon jumping) The peaceful 'big sky' environment is wonderful for outdoor activities, a great place to relax in the very fresh air. If you're lucky you may be awed to see the magic of the 'Northern Lights' (Aurora Borealis) In summer.

You will have access to our two bathrooms, sitting room and are free to use the kitchen. Your bedroom is located next to the back porch, which provides a bit more privacy as no one else comes through there. The upstairs bathroom is the closest to your room which again, is a bit more private.

Interaction with guests
2017 is our 1st year of renting our spare room. From all the feedback of guests so far, here is what we feel guests need to know before they book. We tend to give guests space, so please do not expect or be offended if we aren't around. We have many bookings especially in the summer, therefore we tend to show guests to their room and leave them to it. Check-in is very informal This does not mean we are unfriendly (promise!) You're more than welcome to ask questions or come find us during your stay. We just ask not to expect us to constantly be in the house. My mother and I are away most weekends, but if you only speak French she will do her best to be around the house for you.

The accommodation was average with comfortable beds, but only one chair. We couldn't meet anybody except a young man who spoke very briefly to us on our arrival. He didn't explain we could use the living room and the kitchen. We never saw Alison who...More

The room was lovely, my husband and I really enjoyed our stay. Alison and her family made us feel really welcome. The house is in a perfect location, far enough out of Stornoway to not be in the town, but close enough that going in...More

Our hosts were warm & welcoming and the room was very comfortable and cosy. There were numerous snacks and a bowl of fruit, but the greatest treat was the beautiful Stornoway smoked salmon in the little fridge. We also had use of a very nice...More

How to get there
Airport: Stornoway Airport: 7.5 mi
Ferry: Stornoway Ferry Terminal : 5.1 mi
Taxies from the airport will be around £17. Busses are quite complicated, you would need to take two different ones at different times to get to the house. I'd recommend asking me about what bus to take so you don't get lost.

In most cases, my son can pick you up from the airport or ferry terminal for £10. If that is of interest to you, send us a message and we'll see what we can do.

Mobile signal is poor at the house. E-mail is the best way to get in touch. The house phone works fine & the number is attached with the directions we sent. We appreciate if you ask any queries a few days before arrival and give us a rough time to expect you so we can look out for the phone if you need us.
