Holiday Rental House
This fully equipped three bedroom holiday home nestles by the sea. In an idyllic setting overlooking a loch on the west side of Lewis this high quality bungalow is very well furnished and decorated throughout. The lounge has patio doors to the garden which contains a garden table. There are lovely views to the sea and the Isle of Bernera beyond. Within walking distance of the bridge across to Great Bernera, with its fabulous unspoilt beaches and many heritage sites, including the fully reconstructed Iron Age House at Bosta, makes it an ideal location for walking, photography, touring and fishing. ...This fully equipped three bedroom holiday home nestles by the sea.

About the neighbourhood
The surrounding area is 'Bernera' and 'Uig' where you will fine the famous Iron Age houses situated at Bosta Beach, only 10 minutes drive away from Hollyburn. This is esspeically busy during the summer months when the weather is warmer and there is lots of local events going on such as 'Bosta fun day' where you will find something for the whole family!
Getting around
We would highly reccomend renting or bringing a car with out as Stornoway (Main town) is approx a 40 minute drive. However this is what make the cottage so special. it is set in a remote and rural part of the island overlooking the sea with many beautiful beaches nearby.
