Very good surprise

Reviewed on November 13, 2016

On our way to Uig, on Lewis, I was wondering what we would find over there... And we were completely dazzled by the hostel, very new and cosy. There is one dorm with 8 beds and a wonderful kitchen / living room that faces a loch where some otters are sometimes to be seen. How delicious it was to just stare at the loch while drinking a tea... The walk to the village and to the amazing Uig beach is very nice ! Good to know : the hostel is accessible for guests in wheelchairs. Very clever !
