The hostel is located in a renovated schoolhouse, which adjoins the shop and tea-room, and is tucked away in a quiet village far from the pressures of everyday life.

If you are searching for a peaceful retreat with beautiful views in an area where you can see Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles and many other birds and wildlife, and with opportunities for walking, cycling and other outdoor activities this is the place for you.

Cuando hice la reserva se me dijo que tenía que llegar antes de las 18h., así que desde que desembarcamos fuimos directamente al albergue y nos encontramos con que la persona responsable se iba a las 17h. La puerta del albergue estaba abierta y encontramos en la entrada una pizarra donde se nos indicaba cúal era nuestra habitación. El hecho de que el albergue esté las 24h. abierto es práctico, pero no seguro y, de haberlo sabido con anterioridad, podríamos haber visitado la isla de Harris.

Very nice accomodation. Maybe a more spacious kitchen could be a plus

The location was excellent anyway! Very quiet and peaceful so you can just hear the sound of wind, water and sheep! At night you can see so many stars!

Le site est magnifique, des moments enchanteurs par beau comme par mauvais temps. Seuls regrets: peu ou pas de doc sur les horaires des cars ! il faut penser aux marcheurs ! cela a necessité un retour à Stornoway pour les obtenir autre remarque les horaires d'ouverture de la boutique ne sont pas du tout adaptés . Fin de journée et début de soirée serait plus appropriés pour marcheurs et cyclistes séjournant très souvent pour peu de temps ! Séjour vraiment inoubliable. Lewis est magnifique !
