This north-west corner of the Isle of Lewis could not be more well provided for whatever your interests including a Nature Reserve (Loch Stiapabhat), which is an SSSI and particularly spectacular in Spring and Autumn, with visiting wildfowl and waders.  Artists and photographers are drawn to this area for the contrasts between the dramatic cliffs at the Butt of Lewis Lighthouse and the fabulous beaches, to the vastness of the peat moors which continually change their mood from tranquil calmness in a warm setting sun to an otherworldliness in a descending mist.

For those interested in the traditional crofting life of the islands, a way of life which has a fascinating but sometimes turbulent history, the owners are always willing, depending on the time of year, to involve you in the crofting activities at the time, especially wonderful during lambing but equally fascinating at harvest time.  Follow the crofting calendar on the Am Blàr Beag website

The cottage has been tastefully refurbished and is a comfortable and economical holiday house for a family, with easy access to facilities and beach. Also, it is perfectly possible to explore all the Isle of Lewis and even Harris for those happy to drive and both islands have their own gems to discover, but probably most known for the fabulous world class beaches which form necklaces around the coastline.

Stornoway is the main town of the island and has a growing number of excellent restaurants, arts centre and theatre and many local shops for a wide variety of fresh food and delicatessen produce. There are two large supermarkets and local stores including Swainbost store and fuel station and a local store at Cross where the famous Cross black pudding can be bought!
