Enjoy the comforts of luxuriously appointed accommodation at Willow Cottage, larch clad holiday home set right in the heart of a traditional crofting community on the West Side of Lewis. The cottage offers spacious accommodation for up to four people, excellent facilities, renewable energy systems and also superb disabled access, making it the ideal holiday destination for everyone.
The cottage is set on a stream bank on the edge of wild moorland, a natural habitat for such rarebirds as red-throated divers and golden eagles, not to mention otters and red deer, whilst the coastline is great for spotting whales, dolphins, seals porpoises and the many colonies of seabirds. Barvas is ideally positioned for exploring the rich, scenic cultural delights of Lewis and is only 12 miles west of Stornoway, the main shopping centre.
There is excellent surfing along the coast and Barvas Loch provides the ideal spot to enjoy many watersports. With fishing for wild brown trout literally on your doorstep, a salmon loch a stone’s throw away and opportunities for sea angling off the coast, this is a great destination for fishermen and women.
Relax and enjoy the sun setting over the Atlantic from the privacy of your own decked area and look forward to exploring this unique and special place.
