We loved our time at the Hatchery. Convenient and peaceful. Easy walks to major attractions (stones), and drives to everywhere on the island. Great, friendly hosts and everything you need for a wonderful holiday.

About the neighbourhood
Welcome to the Isle of Lewis, the most northerly inhabited island in the long chain of the Hebrides, scattered of the North West of Scotland. In this increasingly homogenised world a holiday here is like no other. Tall mountains, broad sweeping moorlands, a sense of space and uncluttered privacy, crofts, magnificent beaches, huge skies, the ever restless sea, ancient monuments, towns and villages. All await your discovery.

Go fishing, walking, boating, hiking, surfing, bird watching, sea angling, day tripping, paddling, swimming, exploring, lying on a beach, visit the Callanish Stones, unwind or just relax with a coffee in a hotel or café. All these and more will fill your days.
Getting around
The property is on the circular main road around Lewis. Having a car is recommended for reaching the out of way beaches and walks the area is renowned for.

The Hatchery is ideally situated for cycling and reaching many points of interest.

The loch in front of the lodge is ideal for fishing and there their is a boat which you are free to use (at your own risk).
