‘Mo Eilean’ is a beautifully restored traditional Victorian stone house that provides our guests with a home away from home. It is set in a quiet, yet central street of Stornoway, the main town of the Western Isles. With only a 5 minute walk into the center of Stornoway, its tranquil harbor, Lews Castle, shops, restaurants, cinema and sports center are on your doorstep. Arrival points of ferry port or airport are also only 5-10 minutes from our house. If you travel by car, there is ample parking right in front of the house.
Everything in this house has been lovingly chosen to create a space which offers a charming marriage of old and new, traditional and modern. Where possible, we preserved and exposed special features like the original stone wall in the loft living room, the old wooden flooring, and formerly hidden fireplaces. Two modern wood burners add to the cosines of the living and dining spaces, while the spacious bathroom invites you to relax in a luxurious spa bath.
If you are not out exploring our unique island landscape with its breathtaking beaches, lochs, and coastline, your holiday home is furnished with ample home entertainment such as Amazon & Netflix TV, a Blu-Ray player with a wide selection of DVDs, high-quality Naim & Cambridge HiFi sound systems, PS4, free fibre broadband, a great selection of books, games, jigsaws as well as a laptop docking station, monitor, and printer for any work requirements.
For families with young children, we provide a cot, high-chair, car seat, and booster seat, pram, as well as a safety gate for our stairs.
On a sunny day, you can enjoy your own private patio garden equipped with a table, seating and a Weber barbecue. This space is also ideal to hang and store any leisure/sports equipment for surfing, biking or other water sport activities.
In terms of location, geographically Stornoway is the perfect base for exploring Lewis and Harris with all parts of the islands within easy reach by car.
