The view from here can be one of tranquil peace or of a wild and exciting storm but, whatever the elements deliver, Taigh Eilidh, winner of the 2012 Self Build Design Award, will be a luxurious and comfy retreat to enjoy anything the weather can throw at you!
Situated spectacularly at the north-west tip of the Isle of Lewis, yet under and hour drive from Stornoway, it is easy to get to if arriving by ferry from Ullapool. The airport is even closer than the ferry terminal and so it is possible to fly in and car hire at the airport. We recommend Car Hire Hebrides.
Once here you will find 2 superb beaches, Ness and Eoropie. There are art galleries, artists studios (one in Ness itself) and potteries to visit as well as fabulous walking.
It is possible to spend your time touring the Isle of Lewis from here and even heading down to Harris, but with such a lovely house and view - why would you want to!
A week can be fully filled just exploring the area and walkers can take a coastal route around the headland to the Butt of Lewis lighthouse. Here, in the breeding season, are thousands of seabirds nesting on the cliffs. In fact it is possible to watch gannets diving for fish in the bay from the window of the house.
The beach, of course, will be the big draw whether you enjoy swimming or beach-combing and building sandcastles! Being so close to and overlooking the beach you are perfectly placed to grab that special moment when the tide is just perfect. The photographs here were taken in August 2016 and you will see that the beach does not get packed with people even at this peak time of year.
Tesco Stornoway operate the normal delivery service to Ness and the local store in Cross is a well stocked little gem for any day to day requirements.
In Taigh Eilidh you will find that every care has been taken to provide you with a luxurious stay from the well equipped and immaculate kitchen to the 2 spacious shower/bathrooms and the quality linens and towels. Little extras such as soaps and handwashes and a welcome basket come as standard for all visitors.
