We are located in the hamlet of Carishader which nestles along the edge of Loch Roag, a perfect base for exploring Uig and the surrounding areas which are steeped in history, the Lewis Chessmen having been found just five miles away!

We are close to beautiful beaches, perfect for those long walks or for the more adventurous Cliff beach is fantastic for surfing and Loch Roag ideal for paddle boarding.

For the nature lovers we have frequent sightings of Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles, Otters and Red Deer as well as the many migratory birds that pass by Lewis in both summer and winter.

Sightseeing/wildlife boat trips are available April to September from our local Harbour at Miavig (contact Seatrek for further details).

The bedroom has a luxurious king size bed with a private en suite, Freesat TV, WIFI and tea and coffee making facilities.

We aim to make you feel relaxed and at home here with the feeling that you can come and go as you please. We are more than happy to help you find places to explore this beautiful part of the island but we also respect your privacy while you stay with us.

Free Parking available on site.

Two course evening meals are available at a cost of £19.00 per person (BYOB). If you have any special dietary requirements or food allergies please let us know when booking to help us best prepare for your visit.

Up to 2 well behaved dogs are welcome (please send us a message to let us know if you are bringing dogs with you) Please note that there is an additional £10 cleaning fee payable at the end of your stay if you bring a pet.

We highly recommend checking ferry availability prior to booking with us, particularly during the summer months.
We are really looking forward to meeting you all and welcoming you to this most wonderful and scenic part of the Outer Hebrides.
