Lower Shader is a convenient location for motorhome travellers to park and hook up as they explore the North West of Lewis, or as a base when touring further on the island. Within 10 miles either side of us you will find good eating places, interesting landmarks and great views. We are 15 miles from the main town of Stornoway on the A857 and 4 miles North of Barvas, where the circular route to the "must see" sites of Lewis can be joined. North West Lewis has much to offer, including the most Northerly section of the NCR780 cycling trail, “Hebridean Surf” tuition based at Barvas or various walks on the Galson Estate. A visit to Butt of Lewis Lighthouse could take in a walk across the nearby bridge to Dun Eistean stronghold, or for something a bit less energetic there is the Bird Sanctuary in Ness.
The Port of Ness (Butt of Lewis) is 10 miles North from Shader by road.
There are shorter walks to the shore and village, including the fascinating Steinacleit archeological site, from where you can enjoy the view back down over Loch an Duin. Clach an Trushal stone, reputed to be the tallest monolith in Scotland, is minutes away in the next village of Ballantrushal.
Stop for lunches/coffees at the An Cafe within the old Cross school where Ness Historical Society gives access to archives and croft histories. Pop in at the Buttery/ Old Decca Station, or Sonas cafes, or eat out at Borve Hotel (courtesy drop off/collect sometimes possible).
As all nearby cafes are well worth a visit you will be spoiled for choice!
On dark clear evenings Shader village can be a haven for stargazers due to the low light pollution,and on a fine Summer evening you may just want to relax at this peaceful stopover and watch the sun setting over the Atlantic.
