“Lovely time at Lewis”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

During my stay at Lewis I couldn't have wished for a better accommodation.
The Barn itself is nice and cosy, ideal for staying inside when the weather isn't cooperating.
It has a great view on the beach which is about a 10 minute walk away, Stornoway itself is a little further away but easy to reach by bus (if you haven't got a drivers license such as myself).
The area is great for a little exploring on foot or bike with clean air and beautiful views.

As for the owners Lilian and John; they're the friendliest, most helpful people you could wish for.

John: thanks for letting me borrow your bicycle (though the hills and wind proved the better of me) and I hope the Rangers will do a little better next season!

In short, I had a lovely time at the Barn and would most certainly recommend it to anyone

“Fantastic views and location”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed here during a business trip and cannot recommend it highly enough. After working all over the Highlands The Barn was by far the best. Clean, airy and the views are amazing. Lilain and John the owners could not be more helpful or hospitable. I had my dog with me and there are plenty of walks with breath taking views.If you're planning a break in Stornoway and want to relax this is definitely the place to go.
