Traditional crofthouse renovated to a Guest House offering private rooms with ensuite and guest lounge and kitchen with access to all facilities (washing, drying, cooking, lunch prep). Generous continental breakfast provided for guests to help themselves to, with full cooked at a small charge on request.


This listing is for one of 3 bedrooms available - a family room (Machair), a double room (Beach) and a single room (Mountain) which can be rented individually or in any combination.

The space
Vigadale Guest House sits at the foot of the largest 'mountain range' in the Western Isles, on the border between Lewis & Harris. It is set on a working croft by Loch Seaforth, with the hills as a backdrop. Within 5 minutes guests can walk into the hills and feel a real sense of wilderness. Great location for exploring the island by car, on bike or on foot, with the Hebridean Way passing the door.
From the house you have a high chance of seeing both Golden and White Tailed Eagles, among other birds of prey. And if you're lucky, you may see the otters on the shore.

Guest access
Cristina, Archie & Rosie have their own lounge and kitchen, and en suite bedroom. Guests have access to all other areas of the house, really only sharing a landing and front door with the family.

Other things to note
Pets are welcome. Our resident labradors, Whisp & Lexi welcome all visitors. However, as we are on a working croft, control and respect for the neighbouring sheep would be appreciated. In addition, we have pet chickens and rabbits, so please be mindful of this.
A small range of evening meals are available, at extra cost, for guests to prepare themselves in the guest kitchen, prepared by local chef, Chris from "Flavour". These are particularly welcomed by cyclists and walkers who do not wish to carry extra weight. Please indicate if you'd like this option and I'll give you choices prior to arrival.
A lot of our guests bring their own food too, and use the kitchen facilities to prepare their own meals.
We have a wood fired hot tub for guest use, at extra cost, with towelling robes and deck shoes. Although I will endeavour to ensure it is available as often as possible, as it is a wood burner with no chemicals, it does need emptied and reheated every few days, and 1800 litres takes a while to heat properly! I'll do my best... If this is a big part of your wish for this stay, let me know and I'll do all I can to make sure it's ready for you.

Ardvourlie is a small crofting community, where neighbours help one another. Tarbert is the nearest village, approx 12 miles over the Clisham. Stornoway is 34 miles to the North.
PLEASE NOTE, when finding us, we are on the main A859 route between Lewis & Harris, approx one mile south of the border into Harris and 2nd entrance on right after the Scaladale Centre heading north. We are right by road, with a sign at top of driveway. If you’re struggling to find us, call the landline (mobile signal is not available within the house).
