Nestled in a beautifully restored former mission hall, Snowberry Cottage offers a cosy retreat for up to four people on the picturesque Westside of the Isle of Lewis. The cottage, renovated in 2023, features ample on-site parking for two cars and secure bicycle storage.

Inside, you'll find a well-equipped kitchen with modern appliances, including a washing machine, electric cooker, microwave, dining area, and a fridge freezer. If you prefer dining out, there's a restaurant just a five-minute walk away (booking in advance is recommended, and the restaurant is closed on Sundays).

The comfortable lounge is equipped with a Smart TV, a selection of books, and board games for entertainment. Outside, the enclosed garden has a charming decked area with garden furniture for relaxation.

The cottage has two bedrooms—one with a king-size bed and the other with two singles—ideal for a party of four. Please note that Snowberry Cottage is not suitable for children under six, and occupancy is limited to four individuals.

Located on a well-connected bus route (W1) and just a 20-minute drive from Stornoway, Snowberry Cottage is conveniently situated for exploring the area. The village of Borve, within walking distance, offers a hotel with a restaurant and pub (booking essential), a convenience store, a doctors' surgery, and a rocky shoreline for leisurely strolls.

Nearby attractions include historic sites and opportunities for wildlife viewing. Snowberry Cottage is also a great stop for travelers on the Hebridean Way, with its minimal light pollution making it an excellent spot for viewing the Northern Lights.

It's important to pre-book ferries or flights to the island, as any additional charges due to transportation issues are the responsibility of the traveler.
