CCL Property are delighted to bring to market the wonderful Doune Braes Hotel with its 15 en-suite letting rooms and spectacular surroundings, situated on the west side of the Isle of Lewis in the Western Isles of Scotland. This well-established hotel offers comfortable accommodation with outstanding views, together with its own lochan that fronts the hotel which offers guests unlimited trout fishing. Ideally located, this hotel offers the perfect location for those wishing to explore the rest of the island.
The Isle of Lewis is the most northerly of the group of islands known as the Hebrides or Western Isles. Steeped in history and culture the island boasts numerous sites of historical interest, endless sandy beaches renowned with surfing enthusiasts and countless lochs and lochans offering salmon and trout fishing.
Stornoway is the main town of the island, home to the Western Isles Council with a population of just over 6,000 which accounts for around a third of the island’s inhabitants. The economy is a mixture of traditional businesses such as fishing, Harris Tweed, and farming, with more recent influences like the Isle of Harris Distillery, which has achieved further success with its iconic, much loved gin after scooping the Gold award at this year’s prestigious global awards. The rest of the island is more traditional and relies a great deal upon fishing, crofting, and the weaving of tweed.
The Doune Braes Hotel is situated in the town of Carloway which is 23 miles west of Stornoway and is within minutes of picturesque beaches, excellent fly fishing, world class archaeological sites and breath-taking walks.
Travelling to the island is by air or sea with daily ferry services operating between the mainland and the surrounding islands by Caledonian MacBrayne. The island airport which is located approx. 3 miles east of Stornoway town centre, offers daily flights to Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow, and Edinburgh airports.
