    What our visitors think "Had a fantastic stay!! Rhoda and her family are some of the friendliest and most accommodating people that I have ever met. Would recommend a visit here any time.

    "Lovely accommodation and all the extras, especially the baking, have made our first visit to the Western Isles truly magical."
    "You have really gone out of your way to give us a fantastic time and for this we are truly grateful."
    "Going home is always hard for us - even more this time."
    "We have been 'spoiled rotten' - thank you for a memorable holiday. You have thought of everything we could possibly need or be interested in..."
    Kabuis Self Catering Holidays

    Neil & Rhoda look forward to welcoming you to the peace and comfort of Kabuis and apart from taking care of every practical detail of your stay love meeting new people and taking time out to talk of the area, the village, the Hebrides and it's heritage and culture.
    Located on a 6 acre croft on the West Coast on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland's Outer Hebrides, Kabuis Holidays provides a one bedroom Self Catering Apartment and a Two Bedroom Holiday Chalet

    Neil and Rhoda's acre croft borders Loch a Bhaile, where  bank fishing is available to guests - brown trout and, in season, the odd sea trout or salmon are to be had, with the occasional flounder to startle the unwary. The whole locality is rich in wildlife - red-throated divers nest on Loch a Bhaile; skylarks trill and snipe flutter; through June and July, the corncrakes boom, and you might even see an otter.

    Nothing is rushed here: there are no deadlines, no office grind, no urgency. As we like to say here in the West - when the Good Lord made time, he made plenty of it.

    Come and enjoy the serenity, comfort, friendliness, rich Hebridean tradition, golden sandy beaches and not forgetting the sound of silence.

    Their Kabuis facilities are justly renowned for attention to detail - you'll marvel at the tasteful, contemporary decor, the high quality of fittings and finishes, the provision of every utensil, gadget, and comfort the Macleods could think of - and, of course, they are never far away if you need anything else.

    Road Directions

    From Stornoway follow the A857 for about 11 miles to Barvas. Take the first turning left after the Welome Inn Filling Station and follow the signs to Siabost (gaelic for Shawbost). You will pass a Community School on your left hand side, then pass a cattle grid, sign for Siabost bho Dheas (gaelic for South Shawbost). Take the first right after the cattle grid and we are the ninth house on the right hand side. The house is stone fronted, hard by the road with the Chalet visible on the other side of the road.

    Public Transport Directions

    Getting there by aeroplane:- There have been scheduled passenger flights to Stornoway for very many years now and, at present, you can fly in from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness and Aberdeen. There are also inter-island flights to Benbecula and Barra. A new, well-fitted terminal building was opened at Stornoway in 2002 and is well served by car-hire firms and taxi operators.

    Getting there by ferry:- The majority of visitors reach Lewis by Cal Mac ferry service from Ullapool. The ISLE OF LEWIS makes two or three double-runs daily Mon-Sat. The sail from Ullapool to Stornoway takes two and a half hours. Or take the shorter and more scenic route from Uig in Skye to Tarbert in Harris. This takes just over an hour and a half making one or two double-runs daily Mon-Sat. Tarbert itself is about thirty-five minutes from Stornoway and just over an hour from Shawbost. If you'd like to take in the Uists on your holiday, CalMac also run a car ferry from Leverburgh in South Harris to Berneray, now linked to North Uist by causeway. The LOCH PORTAIN has more limited facilities and vulnerable to tidal and weather delays (always check before travelling) This is the only seven-day ferry to operate
