The Isle of Great Bernera is a small island to the south of the hotel connected to Lewis by a bridge on the B8059. The island is a 25 minute drive away and well worth a visit. At Bosta in the north west, the island has a wonderful beach, and an ‘Iron Age’ village. One of the Iron Age houses has been superbly rebuilt, and entry is available during the summer. The island also has its own museum and cafe at Breacleit, situated within the community centre. Read more or join their Facebook site.
The island has many antiquities including standing stones, duns and a restored Norse Mill.
Or fancy a walk? Then the Great Bernera Trail might be your challenge.
