More information about Loch Cottage

Property information

Loch Cottage is a stunning, luxury self-catering cottage on the west coast of Lewis. The house is located at the end of a quiet road, overlooking Loch Dalbeg and just 100 metres from this wonderful sandy beach - serene on a calm day and awesome when wild!

The house has been furnished and equipped to an exceptionally high standard and well deserves its Visit Scotland 5 star award. The spacious open-plan living-kitchen-dining area has stunning views over the loch and lets out onto decking to the front. Everything has been thought of for a perfect family holiday including beach towels, picnic baskets, buckets and spades and much more. The owners have ensured that you will not find their house wanting in any way and have added many additional touches not normally found in self catering cottages.

Loch Cottage is just a 25 minute drive from Stornoway, close to the Westside Coastal Walk and surrounded by some of the most amazing countryside and archaeological sites in the world. Ten miles south are the standing stones of Callanish, second only to Stonehenge. Three miles south is Dun Carloway, an Iron Age broch (fort) and the restored Black House Village of Gearrannan.

However, the jewel in the crown must be the fabulous Dalbeg beach, on which this cottage almost sits. Just a brief walk and you are on one of Lewis' most spectacular beaches surrounded by towering cliffs and stacks. The area around Loch Cottage is one of special scientific interest and is home to a wealth of wildlife. Two miles north is a restored Norse Mill and a little further again is the Black House Museum at Arnol, the Morven Art Gallery and the pottery at Borgh. In Carloway you can go to see Harris Tweed being woven in the traditional way and can buy it by the metre from the weaving shed.

A little further afield are the Iron Age House at Bosta beach and the fantastic 24 sandy beaches of Uig and Bernera. North will take you to the top most point of Lewis - the Butt of Lewis Lighthouse, the fabulous Eoropie Dunes and beach with its 4 acre play park and the well known surfers beach at Ness (there is storage for surf boards at Loch Cottage).

The spacious living accommodation has been designed and created by the artist owners and their appreciation of the interaction of land, rock, light and sea is fully reflected in the character of all the rooms. In short, it is a beautiful, tranquil, light yet warm holiday cottage on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

Dalbeg is a magical place where you could come and stay put for the whole week (and many have) just disconnecting from the rush of traffic, noise and busy lives and allowing the peace and vastness of this land and seascape to soak through even the most restless soul. Come and see for yourself!
