It is set just above a bay on the north- east of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, 50 metres from the beach in this area of peaceful, natural beauty.

Sit on the wraparound deck to watch the world go by and see weather change throughout the day.
It is a house built in a contemporary design with energy-conscious technology, resulting in a stunning, low-impact building which has won awards for its modern take on traditional Lewis houses, happy in its surroundings.
You have the joy of privacy in this south-facing house, but still have easy access to Stornoway via your own or public transport.
The house is located on a croft on the edge of a small village with open views around. Comfy garden chairs on the wraparound deck let you make the most of your own views to the beach and moor. We have a separate dining deck for al fresco eating on sunny days.
