The property

Marabhat Lodge 1 forms one of two beautifully appointed cabins situated very conveniently for touring Lewis, from the most northerly point out to the west coast and down to Harris. Unlike many 'pods', the king size bedroom and bathroom are a good size and well appointed and the galley kitchen has all you need if you wish to cook at home. However, for those wishing to dine out, you have the Borve Hotel not very far away and the Cross Inn further north. There are several cafes and good sandy beaches withing an easy drive. Stornoway is only 25 minute drive and where there are many restaurants and shops. The Lodges make the perfect short-stay stop over for those touring the islands of the Outer Hebrides, but also make economical accommodation for a 7 day break for those who intend to explore extensively during the day but require a comfy bed, luxury bathroom and privacy for their evenings rather than returning to a hotel room. The kitchen is remarkably well equipped for cooking in the cabin with everything you need. There are stunning beaches including the surfing beach at Port of Ness and the massive dunes at Eoropie.

About the location

PORT OF NESS

Ness 1.5 miles; Bragar 19.7 miles; Stornoway 26.8 miles

With an intriguing little harbour backed by a jagged headland, merging into an east-facing beach, the Port of Ness rests at the northern tip of the Isle of Lewis. Offering an insight into the legends, lore and long-observed traditions that have shaped the island’s identity, this community, in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, is a stronghold of the Gaelic language. Harbour View Gallery is where you will find some of locally-based artist Anthony J Barber's works on view. Cross boasts an inn that looks slightly out of place, along with one of the brightest and most cheerful looking post offices you'll find anywhere. From the nearby Butt of Lewis you can look out across the unforgiving waters of the Atlantic and stand in the shadow of a Stevenson lighthouse built of red brick. Take in the breath-taking scenery from the Isle of Lewis' northernmost point, surrounded by the swells of an ever-rising sea. The Butt of Lewis features some of the oldest rocks in Europe, having been formed in the Precambrian period. Discover Dùn Èistean, an archaeological site on the north east coast, showcasing the ruins of two large buildings amongst grassy tussocks. Stornoway is just 40 minutes away by car, with a busy working harbour, selection of shops selling local gifts including Harris Tweed and award-winning restaurants selling locally sourced food. Visit Lews Castle Grounds and the iconic Lews Castle as well as museums and art galleries. This beautiful location is for those looking to get out and explore the rural landscapes and fascinating Scottish heritage the Isle of Lewis has to offer.

Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental.
