Stornoway Bed and Breakfast Guest House

Mar 27, 2008
The town of Stornoway is a popular place in which to stay when visiting the Isle of Lewis. The Isle of Lewis is the largest, and most inhabited, island in the Outer Hebrides/Western Isles of Scotland. Situated off the west coast the Isle of Lewis is, along it's west coast, continually shaped by the powerful waves of the North Atlantic Ocean which has helped to create one of the most outstandingly picturesque remote places in Great Britain. Stornoway is on the more sheltered east side of the island where you will find Stornoway guest house accommodation the most economical and most practical way to stay.

While most of the Isle of Lewis is little more that rather barren looking moorland the most incredible scenery can be found along the west coast of the island. At the very south west of the island are some of the most amazing beaches to be found in the whole of the UK, and possibly Europe. More often than not the wonderful stretches of silvery golden shell sand beaches are deserted except for sheep and other, more interesting, wildlife, So, if your chosen Stornoway guest house is right in the center of town you can easily escape to your own, almost private, paradise beach, whenever the mood takes you.

The town of Stornoway grew up around it's sheltered harbor during the eighteenth century and, by the beginning of the twentieth century it had one of the busiest herring ports in Europe. Unfortunately, following the First World War the herring industry collapsed as the areas around the Baltic had developed their own herring fleets. Today the town still has a small fishing fleet and the harbor still plays a vital role in the town.

Across the harbor to the other side can be seen Lews Castle which is surrounded by the most incredible grounds that are well worth an hour or two of your time. If you are staying in a Stornoway guest house it will be unlikely that you will be any great distance from the castle grounds. If you can find the time it is strongly advised that you take the time to wander around the grounds which have some really interesting aspects such as the Creed, a small but very pretty river.

When visiting the Isle of Lewis you really have two choices to make about the accommodation in which you shall stay. Do you stay in a Stornoway guest house, hotel or other accommodation or do you, instead, opt to stay in accommodation outside the town in an altogether more rural setting. Much depends on your preferences, do you prefer to be close to amenities or is peace and quiet the most important factor to you? With this in mind we shall look at one, highly popular Stornoway guest house and another popular guest house just outside the town.

Holm View Guest House can be found within five minutes drive of the town of Stornoway in the Isle of Lewis. Although it is pretty close to the town the area is, most definitely, rural with some of the most amazing views across Lewis and out across the sea. The views will be most appreciated if you experience one of the areas incredible sunsets. The bed and breakfast accommodation here is of the highest standard which makes Holm View one of the most popular guest houses on the Isle of Lewis.

In stark contrast to Holm View Guest House the Thorlee Guest House is right in the very center of Stornoway. In fact it is as central as you can get and this means that, virtually, everything is within a minute or two's walk. Just across the road is the sea but, more importantly, this is where you will find the ferry terminal and bus station. Furthermore the Thorlee is excellently placed to enjoy the town's nightlife.

Many who stay in a Stornoway guest house find themselves impressed at the level of service offered, the warm reception given and the helpful friendliness of their hosts. Most people who visit the islands of the Outer Hebrides/Western Isles comment on the hospitality of the area and most leave wishing to return again some day soon.
