  • "Lovely cottage."

    Great views and facilities. Underfloor heating was just a bit too warm for most of our group and the only way to reduce the temperature was to open windows. However this didn't work if it was windy (the house is quite exposed to wind) as the windows blew shut and we worried about them breaking.

  • "A wonderful house in a fantastic location with superb views."

    The property is very well equipped and was spotlessly clean. Communication with the owners was easy and they provided helpful advice on local sights, restaurants etc.. One of the best holiday rentals we've stayed in. Highly recommended.

  • "We loved our stay at Clach Gorm and would be delighted to come back."

    Everything was beautiful. The owners are so friendly and helpful and the area is perfect for a remote and restful stay. We walked to the sea daily and enjoyed the views and the cozy space. The kitchen is perfect for cooking for a large group (we were 7) and we received helpful feedback on where to find the best groceries, etc. (We did run out of toilet paper and trash bags, so would advise purchasing extra of these if you are a large group!)

    Clach Gorm was a beautiful house which we all had a great new years break in, to the point where we didn’t want to leave

  • "The property was very well kept and very well equipped which was perfect for a week away with families."

    The Sykes holiday website is not very straightforward to request extra things from or contact but the contact with the house owners was first rate and they were incredibly helpful.

The property

Stornoway 7.4 miles.

Boasting outstanding sea views is this magnificent, detached holiday home Clach Gorm, near Point not far from Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis.

Perfect for families and large gatherings, Clach Gorm offers the ultimate in style and opulence.

The sheer grandeur of the house is established from the get-go with the hugely impressive open-plan living space setting the tone for the rest of the property.

Here there is a delightful sitting area arranged around large feature windows which showcase the simply breath-taking views over to the sea with an attractive woodburning stove providing another fantastic focal point to the space.

You can imagine curling up here day or night and really making the most of being on holiday.

The extremely well-appointed kitchen is a chef’s dream with a range-style cooker, Belfast sink and wonderful selection of amenities making it a fabulous place to cook up a storm.

When the food is ready, guests can pull up a chair in the inviting dining room where the woodburning stove offers not only warmth but a real sense of comfort and elegance.

If the weather allows then you can also enjoy some quality time alfresco with the extensive gardens and decking area providing a really sociable spot for gathering to eat and drink and watch the sun go down over the Bayble Bay.

If the weather is not so good then why not hunker down in the cool cinema room which has its own screen, projector and cinema seating?

After a hard day of holidaying, guests can make their way to any of the five equally well-presented bedrooms ranging from twins to king-size so whatever combination of guests there are in your party there is a bedroom for everyone.

Waking up here is a delight with the invigorating Hebridean air offering a real opportunity for feeling truly revitalised, where you can properly recharge your batteries and feel you’ve had a proper break.

There is something for everyone to do here with walking, surfing, paddleboarding, cycling, fishing, sailing and swimming all available literally on the doorstep with whale and dolphin watching nearby at Tiumpan Head Lighthouse.

Jump in the car for a scenic drive to places such as Callanish Standing Stones, Lews Castle, Butt of Lewis lighthouse and Museum nan Eilean or visit neighbouring islands such as Harris, Benbecula, North and South Uist and Barra.

The town of Stornoway is well worth a visit with a fascinating working harbour, beaches nearby and a good selection of shops and eateries.

An outstanding family holiday awaits with a stay at Clach Gorm.

The islands can be reached by flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness; or by ferry from Uig on Skye to Tarbert, or Ullapool to Stornoway.

About the location

STORNOWAY

Arnol 14.5 miles; Callanish Stones 16 miles.

Stornoway is the only town in the Outer Hebrides and is a bustling and growing area with a busy working harbour, a great selection of shops selling local gifts including Harris Tweed, leisure facilities and wonderful award-winning restaurants selling locally sourced food of the highest quality. Lewis is a place where the lilting Gaelic language is spoken everywhere! Visitors to the town will find plenty to keep them occupied, the magnificent Lews Castle Grounds and the iconic Lews Castle, many good museums and art galleries and also a smart golf course and clubhouse. The large, quiet sandy beaches are close by and provide visitors with wonderful views and the town itself forms a great base for a holiday exploring the unique islands that form the Outer Hebrides. On the north west side of Lewis you can visit the village of Arnol with its Blackhouse Museum, an unmissable visit for anyone wanting to understand the way of life that was once widespread in Lewis. Carloway Broch is nearby and is another fascinating landmark and incredibly well preserved. The Callanish Stones from the Neolithic are also well worth visiting. The whalebone arch and numerous Iron Age dwellings on stunning Bosta beach make for great days out. The friendliness of the local people will astound visitors to the islands and you cannot fail to be impressed with the genteel and contented pace of life you will encounter here.

Note: If you wish the twin bedrooms to be made up as a king-size please let us know at the time of booking. Note: Please bear in mind that this property is located on an island and therefore only accessible by plane or ferry.
Note: One medium dog welcome only
