The property

Oran na Cuthaig - meaning "song of the cuckoo" in Scottish gaelic - is a stylishly-renovated former croft house occupying an idyllic setting above a picturesque sea loch and harbour.

Set just 12-miles from the main town of Stornoway, this delightful property is the ideal base for families and groups looking to explore the islands of both Harris and Lewis, throughout the seasons.

An easy journey to coastal, moorland and mountain walks, ancient sites and many spectacular white sand beaches. This charming house was fully renovated to exacting standards in 2022 with comfortable, colourful and sumptuous decor throughout.

It offers a fully equipped kitchen, three comfortable living areas in which to relax, read, enjoy company or soak up the stunning south facing view over Loch Erisort and the Harris hills beyond. Sleeping a maximum of 6 in two doubles and one twin with three bath/shower rooms and a separate WC, the bedrooms are light, airy and comfortable. Guests have use of the main house and garden, as well as parking space to the side.

There is a croft entrance that passes through a section of the property which guests are asked to keep clear, and a small barn with wood-store to one side of the site is not for guest use.

The site is private and peaceful and, being situated on a no through road, guests can expect to have little noise or disturbance during their stay, apart from the occasional cuckoo and quiet chant of new lambs in spring. Nestled into the remote scenery of the Isle of Lewis, this property offers a wealth of stunning sandy beaches to be explored.

There are beautiful trails on which to cycle, as well as ample bird watching opportunities.

Stornoway is the main town, offering a convenience store for all of your essentials, as well as pubs and eateries for when you don’t feel like cooking.

There are many local historic sites and breathtaking views to be taken in from this simply idyllic location.

Explore the Isle of Lewis with a stay at Oran na Cuthaig.

About the location


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.
