Gearrannan Blackhouse Village Hostel, Isle of Lewis

Unique holiday accommodation on the Atlantic coast of the Isle of Lewis, close to the Callanish Standing Stones and Carloway Broch.

On the outside, The Gearrannan Hostel is still 'Taigh Dhonnchaidh' (Duncan's House) with its solid drystone walls and thatched roof, but the newly refurbished inside offers all the comforts of a modern home, with a well equipped kitchen and cosy warmth from radiators heated with renewable energy.  The bedrooms have cosy bunk-beds, and all linen is provided.  There are two modern shower rooms. 

The hostel offers accommodation for 10, plus a family room for 3.

Please book to be certain of availability, but we will accept 'walk-in' residents if space is available. 

Note  It is advisable to buy your provisions before arrival as there are no shops nearby.
