Old Croft House description

Old Croft House has been beautifully converted into a most comfortable, spacious, detached property that ensures all homely comforts are accounted for, making it a truly blissful holiday accommodation.

The property is situated in the crofting township of Back, which lies just 7 miles from Stornoway on the Island of Lewis. The town offers a wide range of shops, galleries, restaurants, a sports centre that offers a wide range of facilities, a museum, golf course and the list goes on. The fabulous stretches of pristine white beaches of Back and Gress are just a few minutes’ walk from Old Croft House, and the River Gress runs nearby, teaming with salmon, sea trout and brown trout.

Situated adjacent to the owner’s home, the property is in an ideal location for exploring all of the island – there are many historic sites nearby, which include the famous Callanish Stones, Carolway Broch and Arnol Blackhouse to name but a few. The area is very popular with birdwatchers, and you can take a boat trip to spot dolphins, puffin colonies on the Shiants, the Flannan Isles or the World Heritage Site of St Kilda.

The stark natural beauty is profoundly compelling, a mosaic of navy-blue waters, lush greenery and dark skies that’ll have you aching to return time and again. Beach 400 yards. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 7 miles.
