Otter Bunkhouse is right on the banks of West Loch Roag, in the village of Carishader, perfectly situated for wildlife, fishing, walking, cycling, surfing and kayaking. We welcome independent travellers, and also group bookings. There's one bedroom, with eight beds, no separate bedrooms, and the price is per bed, per night. The calendar may show us as fully booked even when we still have beds, so if your dates aren't available, please try our listing for Otter Bunkhouse 2.

The space

There's a fully stocked kitchen, with everything you need for self catering, and a lounge area with amazing views over the loch. All bedding is included, and towels can be provided at additional cost. There's one large shower room with toilet, along with a separate toilet.

Guest access

Guests have full access to all of the bunkhouse. There is direct access to West Loch Roag, ideal for kayakers, and a separate drying shed for wetsuits, surfboards, bikes, and also a firepit.

Interaction with guests

The owner, Donald, lives nearby and will usually pop in to say hello at some point, but there is always someone available by email or phone.

Other things to note

If you're planning on bringing a car to the island, its best to book with Calmac as soon as you can, because the ferries get fully booked very quickly during summer months. There are no buses, or shops, open on a Sunday on the Isle of Lewis.

My boyfriend and I had a great time here, having hot showers and a good rest after a week wild camping!

Great location and really friendly owners.

Beautiful. Well organized for multiple travelers. The wind howled and rain came down outside but the Bunk House is tight, warm and cozy.

The bunkhouse is very comfortable, the dining/living area with open kitchen is spacious for a big family or a group of 8 adults. We loved having breakfast outside the house, sitting at a picnic table watching the lake, no midges at all. The bedroom is large, beds comfy with enough space underneath and on the rack to dry clothes. We did not feel crowded when the house was full. The location of the house is good for exploring the north side of Harris with spectacular beaches, sunsets, cliffs and wildlife. We enjoyed the scenery and all the tips given by the host. It was a fantastic trip, we'd love to come back. Thank you.
