About the property

Taigh Chailean is a lovely ground floor cottage based on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland.

It is based in the rural countryside with magnificent views over the nearby loch and surrounding countryside hills.

Step into the open-plan living room with its attractive hardwood flooring and large curved windows, giving amazing views and an abundance of natural light flooding the property.

There is a dining area near the windows, with seating for four people.

The kitchen has a set of wooden units, with grey worktops and a range of high-quality appliances to suit your needs.

Down the hall, you will find two bedrooms: one double and one twin, with a separate walk-in shower room.

The bedrooms have been individually styled, and all have one wall decorated in lovely wallpaper.

With the added touches such as bed throws and plenty of modern furniture, including a dressing table, this property provides luxury, even in the countryside.

The Isle of Lewis is the perfect location should you wish to travel around the island to the paradise beaches of Harris, Uig, Bernera and Ness.

Whilst in Harris, enjoy the many tourist attractions to include the distillery and the Harris Tweed shop.

In Ness, you could visit the harbour and enjoy either the tranquil waves, as well as the lighthouse overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, which makes for a beautiful sight.

Also nearby is the Callanish Stones, megalithic ruins site which has a ring of standing stones surrounding an imposing central monolith.

They were erected in the Neolithic era and were of major focus in the Bronze Age.

About the location


Stornoway 29 miles.

The area known as Ness (Port a Nis) is made up of a number of small villages situated on the most northerly part of the Isle of Lewis, and is the most north-westerly community in the European Union. Visitors to this remote and peaceful island will want to visit the lovely beaches and appreciate the unspoilt beauty of the area. The island is a great place to spot wildlife such as otters, seals, deer, whales and dolphins to name just a few. The men of Ness are famous for their Guga hunting activities, a tradition still carried on today and involves the capture of young gannet chicks for their meat which is considered a great delicacy. The locals also also still speak Gaelic and to most living in this area, English is a second language, although English is widely used. Ness has a pretty harbour that once flourished as fishing was very important to the area, and a small road from here will take you even further north to the famous Butt of Lewis Lighthouse. The Isle of Lewis is joined to the Isle of Harris some 65 miles south of Ness, and the whole area is a great place to tour and savour the unique atmosphere of the magical Outer Hebrides.
