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, with the Carloway Broch (bronze age fort) within walking distance.

The nearby surfing beach of Dalmore is a 5 minutes drive, with 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.


The hotel offers a total of 15 bedrooms, all en-suite and equipped with TV, hospitality tray and free Wi-Fi.

There are family rooms, doubles, twins and singles. Two ground floor rooms are spacious and may be suitable for disabled access.

Most of the Doune Braes Hotel’s rooms enjoy good views to the lochan and overlook the surrounding, tranquil countryside.

Food and drink

The restaurant seating accommodates 36 people and specialises in a variety of local, fresh seafood dishes. The menu also includes a range of meat and vegetarian dishes.

Food is served all day, seven days per week to both residents of the Doune Braes Hotel and non residents.

“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.
