Taigh Granaidh (Granny's Cottage) is a cosy croft house sitting on a working croft in the village of Breasclete on the west side of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. The cottage can sleep six with two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom with two large single beds. There is a large kitchen / dining area, a bathroom, shower room and a comfortable sitting room with spectacular views to Loch Roag.

For many visitors, the highlight of any visit to Lewis is always the chance to see the world famous standing stones at Callanish, in the neighbouring village to Breasclete. The stones are a 5 minute by car from Taigh Granaidh. Within easy reach from Taigh Granaidh visitors can see spectacular beaches, spot golden eagles, try to sneak up on an otter on the loch, cast a fly for trout or salmon, visit an iron age broch, examine the workings of a Norse Mill, embark on a walk across some of the last real wilderness remaining in Europe, take advantage of the dark skies to watch for a display of Northern Lights, or just sit with a dram in hand watching the sunset over Loch Roag. Sheer bliss.
