Bed and Breakfast at the Decca in Ness
– at the extreme edge of Europe

The Decca is almost within sight of the most north westerly tip of inhabited Europe.  Beyond the Butt of Lewis, a few rocky islands may, strictly speaking, be within Europe, but the next landfall to the west is Iceland.  Ness is one of the best locations on Lewis to offer a reasonable chance of to see the Aurora Borealis in the low seasons.

Decca breakfasts vary daily and feature fresh local produce, including free range eggs, black pudding, bacon, sausages,  tomatoes and the very special Decca vegetarian black pudding!  The hosts  make their own fresh bread, preserves, mueslis and sometimes scones and oatcakes.

There’s a growing reputation at the Decca for delicious home cooked evening meals. Fresh local produce is used wherever possible. Booking for dinner is essential and, if you wish, you’re welcome to reserve and pay ahead with your Hebridean Hopscotch Holidays booking.

Sometimes Pete will leave the door to the owners’ accommodation open and give an impromptu piano concert, during dinner!

A guests’ dining room and lounge (with plenty of books) are pleasant places to mix with other guests at the Decca, surrounded by the owners’ collections.

Accommodation

The bedrooms are uncluttered with plain painted walls and  pine furniture.  There are comfortable beds and linen is white cotton with classic embroidery along with fresh fluffy towels.

Rooms have a TV and DVD player, hair dryer and a kettle with tea, coffee and herbal teas. A ground floor bedroom has a walk in shower and may be suitable for guests with limited mobility.

“Great breakfasts and dinners plus home-made artisan bread and even a musical evening. Don’t know how Pete and Louise manage it all!! Its a quirky building but made into a lovely B&B / self catering business with a great entertaining space.” – a TripAdvisor member.
