Number 10, Tolsta Chaolais, Isle of Lewis, Western Isles
Number 10 is a traditional Hebridean house on a working croft (sheep, chickens and highland cattle). Wonderful hills and coastal scenery mingled with excellent walking, bird watching and fishing and close to historic sites and beaches. It is located in Tolsta Chaolais which is a crofting village on the west side of the Isle of Lewis. To find us you must leave the road between Breasclete and Carloway. When you have wound your way across the hills and down to the valley, you will find yourself in a slightly different and much more peaceful world.
The house has one sitting room, 2 doubles and 1 twin bedroom and sleeps 6. Bed linen, towels, crockery and kitchen utensils are all supplied and well behaved dogs are welcome. There is Wi-Fi.
There are few shops in the vicinity, although we are supplied by bakery and grocery vans and the Doune Braes Hotel, just outside the village serves food and drink all day, 7 days a week.
For sailors we have moorings available in the village.
You may want to visit the Calanais Stones Calanais Visitor Centre, the Broch at Dun Carloway, the Gearranan village, the Norse Mill and Kiln Shawbost, the Arnol Blackhouse Museum and the Butt of Lewis.
There are beautiful beaches close at hand at Dal Mor and Dal Beag and at Bosta beach on the island of Great Bernera there is the reconstructed Iron Age House. The sands at Uig and at Europie in Ness are spectacular.
You may want to see some of the annual events in Lewis; the Hebridean Celtic Festival, the Lewis Highland Games, or Sail Hebrides. There are also agricultural shows. Our local show, and the oldest of all is the Carloway Cattle Show.
