A small, comfortable hotel is just half an hour’s drive from Stornoway, the Doune Braes Hotel is situated close to some of the Isle of Lewis’s main attractions.

Doune Braes Hotel is in the country, yet only minutes from wonderful beaches….

The Callanish stones are around 10 minutes drive, while the imposing Carloway Broch (bronze age fort) is within walking distance and the Gearrannan Black House settlement is just at the other end of the village.

The superb surfing beach of Dalmor is about 5 minutes drive, the majestic sandy cove of Dalbeg just a couple of minutes further.  Dramatic coastal walks may be undertaken by those with sensible fitness levels.

Within the Doune Braes Hotel, there are two dining areas, one of which has panoramic views over the inland loch, directly in front of the Doune Braes, comfortable lounge and bar areas.

“Delightful inn close to the Callanish stone circles – I stayed at this lovely hotel last month. The friendliness and eternal helpfulness of Eileen and the staff was an unusual delight. Beautiful breakfasts. Fabulous lamb dishes at dinner. Comfortable and charming rooms. And close to the standing stones of Callanish… A world-class site of antiquity.” – A TripAdvisor reviewer.
