Out & About

There's an endless list of activities and wonderful places to visit! Here are a few of our favourites.....

  • Fishing (can be arranged at the Castle, or free fishing from the smaller lochs)
  • Tennis  (there is a tennis court in an idyllic spot which you will pass as you drive down the peninsular)
  • Tweed making visits (visit our friend the legendary Donald John Mackay at Luskentyre and see him at his loom and perhaps purchase some of the beautiful pure tweed)
  • The extraordinary Callanish Standing Stones on Lewis
  • Scarista House for a memorable evening meal in an old Manse
  • The wonderful Mission House to buy beautiful photography and other artwork
  • Skoon Art Cafe for the best chocolate brownies on a rainy day
  • Croft 36 at Northton.....fabulous food in a shed by the roadside, with a price list and an honesty box!
  • Walking on pristine white sandy beaches and swimming in cold crystal clear water!
  • Boat trips to neighbouring islands and to see the most incredible wildlife
  • Stornoway for cinema at An Llantair Arts Centre, to buy fresh fish at the Quay, and to eat chips and curry sauce, followed by a drink in one of the many pubs.....The Criterion is our favourite
  • The tweed shop and warehouse in Tarbert to gaze at miles of subtle organic coloured material
  • Take your binoculars and head up to the Eagle Observatory
