Where We Are

Kabuis apartment and chalet adjoin Neil and Rhoda Macleod's family home - a lovely stone-built villa, erected with his own hands by Rhoda's father - on their 6-acre family croft at 25 South Shawbost, on the north-west coast of the Isle of Lewis in Scotland's Outer Hebrides.

They're only half an hour's drive from Stornoway, a little over an hour from Tarbert, and - for the adventurous - a half-hour drive from the Butt of Lewis lighthouse, at the north-western extremity of Europe.

Stornoway has all shops and amenities for the visitor and South Shawbost all the peace, beauty and serenity of an ancient crofting township, from the scent of evening peatsmoke to the song and flutter of the birds for which these unspoiled islands are renowned.

There's a lovely sandy beach within an easy walk of Kabuis, spectacular cliff scenery, and quiet lochs hoaching with brown trout.

There are frequent, beautiful Atlantic sunsets and we're right in the middle of the "West Side Heritage Trail", an easy tour taking in the most famous monuments on Lewis, from the Arnol Black House - vacated only in 1964 - to the ancient, most mysterious Standing Stones of Callanish.
