If you want to enjoy an euthentic Hebridean experience then Westend Self Catering Cottage is the ideal location. The cottage is situated in the traditional crofting township of Balallan where Gaelic is spoken by many people in the area and where visitors are very welcome.
The village stretches along the main road from Stornoway in Lewis to Tarbert in Harris (although named as seperate islands they are land bridged) and overlooks Loch Erisort. From Balallan you can access all the attractions of both Lewis and Harris and still get home in time to relax and enjoy the spectacular sunsets.
Westend Cottage is set in a quarter acre of garden from where you can sit out and enjoy the views over Loch Erisort. The village is ideal for walkers, artists, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts. It has a village Post Office and there are cafes, a restaurant and pub nearby. Stornoway is the nearest town, about a twenty minute drive away.
Westend Cottage will accommodate eight people comfortably, it has two double bedrooms, a twin and a room with adult size bunk beds. Great for a large family or two families/friends wanting to share a holiday.
