    Spring in the Hebrides - self catering for the perfect family holiday

    Self catering, newly refurbished, croft house on the Isle of Lewis available for holiday lets. This is the ideal spot for a family holiday and is located within a few minutes walk of a beach. It is ideally located for touring Lewis and Harris, or for just staying by the cottage and enjoying a relaxing holiday. However, because it is on a working croft pets are not allowed, sorry about that but I'm sure those with livestock will understand.

    If you are interested take a look at:

    Dollag's Cottage at 7 South Shawbost



    I have just returned from a wonderful week helping to gather in the stragglers for lambing and the first pet lamb arrived while I was there, the mother rejected it so it will be bottle fed.



    In the mornings there was some snow on the hills, and as can be seen there is still quite a lot of snow on some of the higher hills in Harris. These photos were all taken within about two miles of the cottage







    Although there was snow on the hills on some days there was also a lot of heat in the sun and we went to a local beach and lay in a sheltered spot and had a picnic. The beach is located in the little village of Dail Beag and is about 5 minutes by car from the cottage, or you can walk along the coastal path to it:





    We also spent some time walking on Shawbost beach, about 5 minutes walk from the cottage:



    Last but not least no visit to the Hebrides is complete without calling in to the Tarbert Stores, a Hebridean shopping experience for the discerning shopper

    I like the Lewis "big sky" thing and so thought to add this panorama taken a week ago in Shawbost. You could easily walk to this spot from the cottage and although you really need the full resolution version of the photo to get the full effect I think it gives some idea of the nice contrast between the hills and the flat areas of Lewis.

    There is still some availability in June for anyone looking to book a last minute "get away from it all" holiday. There are also weeks available throughout the winter should you fancy a winter break.
