Lewis & Harris

A Unique Holiday Destination

Breasclete is a crofting village by the shores of Loch Roag on the west coast of the island of Lewis in the Hebrides and is approximately 18 miles from Stornoway the main town on Lewis and 40 miles from Tarbert, the main town on Harris. The Hebridean holiday cottage is perfectly located for exploring both Lewis and Harris and is only a 5 min drive from the famous standing stones at Calanais and the Broch at Doune Carloway.

You’ll be amazed by how much there is to do…

The long Hebridean summer days provide a perfect excuse to explore the outdoors.There is something for everyone, whether its a short ramble along the machair or a hike to the top of a mountain.

Game Fishing

The islands offer visitors almost unlimited opportunities for brown Trout fishing, Salmon and sea Trout lochs are privately owned but permission can be given on some estates in exchange for a fee. Advanced application advised.

Sea Angling

To the visiting sea angler, the Outer hebrides offer a variety of sport unsurpassed almost anywhere else in the country. Enquire prior to arrival to avoid disappointment.


Explore the hills of Uig & Harris. Getting to the summit of one off these hills is always rewarded with spectacular views.


Excellent 18 hole golf course in Stornoway and one of the most remote courses in Britian, situated in Harris.

Bird Watching

Excellent opportunities for spotting species rare to other parts of the country, including Golden Eagles & corncrakes.


The Outer Hebrides is a marvellous place to see wild flowers. The visitor can relish the colours and the scents at their best among the west coast machairs, with the calling of birds adding another dimension to the experience.


The Outer Hebrides are remarkably rich in all forms of wildlife, particularly in late spring and early summer when the machair is at it’s peak. Among the species to see are the otter, red deer and common grey seals.

Boat Trips

Highly recommended. Take a trip and explore the unsurpassed beauty of the Island coastline. Highlights include sightings of seals, whales and dolphins. Also explore the many small islands dotted around the coast. Don’t miss the natural arch and lagoon sheltered on the island of Pabbay.
