‘Mo Eilean’ is a beautifully restored traditional Victorian stone house that provides our guests with a home away from home and an ideal base for exploring the island. It is set in a quiet, yet central street of Stornoway, the main town of the Western Isles. With only a 5 minute walk into the center of Stornoway, our tranquil harbor, Lews Castle, shops, restaurants, cinema, and sports center are on your doorstep. Arrival points of ferry port and airport are also only 5-10 minutes from our house.

The space
Everything in this house has been lovingly chosen to create a space which offers a charming marriage of old and new, traditional and modern. Where possible, we preserved and exposed special features like the original stone wall in the loft living room, the old wooden flooring, and formerly hidden fireplaces. Two modern wood burners add to the cosines of the living and dining spaces, while the spacious bathroom invites you to relax in a luxurious spa bath.
If you are not out exploring our unique island landscape with its breathtaking beaches, lochs, and coastline, your holiday home is furnished with ample home entertainment such as Amazon & Netflix TV, a Blu-Ray player with a wide selection of DVDs, high-quality Naim & Cambridge HiFi sound systems, PS4, free fibre broadband, a great selection of books, games, jigsaws as well as a laptop docking station, monitor, and printer for any work requirements.
For families with young children, we provide a cot, high-chair, car seat, and booster seat, pram, as well as a safety gate for our stairs.
On a sunny day, you can enjoy your own private patio garden equipped with a table, seating and a Weber barbecue. This space is also ideal to hang and store any leisure/sports equipment for surfing, biking or other water sport activities.
In terms of location, geographically Stornoway is the perfect base for exploring Lewis and Harris with all parts of the islands within easy reach by car.

Our central position makes it easy to enjoy Stornoway with all the amenities it has to offer while having a great position from which to explore Lewis and Harris. The fact that we are less than 10 minutes away from the ferry port and airport adds to the convenience of this location.
From Stornoway Harbour you can take guided fishing trips, as well as whale and dolphin watching tours. The Castle Grounds offer a wide range of leisure activities from beautiful walks, to extensive mountain bike trails and Segway Tours after which you can enjoy refreshments at the Castle's Storehouse Cafe or the Woodlands Center. There are several companies offering bike, kayak and surf board hire, guided tours and instruction.

'Mo Eilean' means 'My Island'. In 2010, my husband Douglas and I moved to the Isle of Lewis where Douglas was born. He says "This island home will always pull on your heart strings to bring you back." Originally from Germany, I felt equally enticed by this island's unique charm and ravishing beauty and have never looked back. Now, after years of lovingly bringing our beautiful Victorian house in the heart of Stornoway back to life, we are excited to open 'Mo Eilean's' doors to you as Your special holiday home. It will be our pleasure to be welcoming you from all over the world to experience the breathtaking beauty of this unique island. And maybe you will equally feel the pull on your heartstrings to come back once you have visited!

During your stay

We want you to have the best holiday experience. Therefore, we will greet you in person on arrival if possible and give you a brief tour of the house and answer any initial questions. For parties arriving late, we have a secure key box with code. As we are living next door, we are in easy reach to offer any additional support or advice you may seek. In the rare event that we are ourselves not on the island during your stay, we have friendly and reliable people available to welcome you on arrival and receive your calls with any questions you may have during your stay.
Please rest assured that while always contactable via phone or email, we will only attend the property during your stay if requested to do so. Other than that you will have full privacy during your stay.
