'It would be difficult to find a more beautiful, peaceful location'

***After 33 successful and memorable years of running Hollyburn self catering cottage as a business, we have decided to sell and therefore bookings will cease from 20/10/23. We would like to thank you each and every holiday maker who came to stay & made Hollyburn their second home.***

Surrounded by open countryside, heather moors, hills & just yards from the seashore. The area has magnificent sunsets, superb trout and salmon fishing, wildlife and walking. There are fantastic opportunities for bird watching.

Hollyburn is close to the many ''white sand'' beaches which Lewis is famous for, one within 5 miles. The nearest shop is 2½ miles and pub/restaurant 10 miles.

Surrounded by open countryside, there truly is no better location for those who enjoy spending their days exploring our beautiful island and by night, spent with your feet up in front of the open fire taking in the beautiful views across the loch from Hollyburn.

Lovely cottage overlooking a sea loch. I saw otters, seals, a heron that fished for his breakfast every morning and to top it all, a dolphin jumping out the water. Fantastic. The cottage was very well equipped and cosy and if you like remote, this was the place to be. The owner, Patrick and Mary, were extremely helpful when out boat from Uig to Tarbert was cancelled due to technical problems and we had to drive to Ullapool to catch the last boat to Stornaway. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage. Great value for money.
