Plenty to see & do…
Whether you are looking for a peaceful getaway or an adventure holiday the Outer Hebrides has something to suit all tastes!
Great Bernera is a very scenic island and the perfect location to indulge yourself in walking, fishing or birdwatching. At the north of the island there are the beautiful Bostadh Sands, where in 1996 archaeological excavations revealed the site of an Iron Age settlement.
Although the site has now almost been reclaimed by the sands, there is a nearby reconstruction where visitors can receive live interepretation by a member of our local historical society during the summer months.
Many of our guests are keen walkers and the Uig and Bernera District offer a variety of walking routes at all levels, including the coastal walk to Bosta which passes the house. Elsewhere in Bernera, other walks you can enjoy are to a Norse Mill or to an iron age Broch at Loch Baravat. For the more energetic, sea-kayaking can be enjoyed from the shore at the bottom of the drive, giving access over to Uig and the beautiful islands in between.
Both properties are a forty minute drive from Stornoway and are ideally placed to explore the scenic and historical district of Uig and the major archaeological sites of the westside of Lewis including the world famous Standing Stones at Callanish, the Doune Carloway Iron Age Broch and the Lewis Blackhouses at Gearrannan and Arnol.
After you have explored the many attractions of Lewis and Harris, your accommodation offers the ideal place to relax in front of the open fire or witness the awe-inspiring sight of a Hebridean sunset over the Kyles of Valasay.
