B&B in Stornoway

Stornoway, which lies along the eastern coast of the Isle of Lewis, in Scotland, is the largest town and capital of the Outer Hebrides. It's much more than just a jumping-off point for exploring the archipelago, though. When you stay in a Stornoway bed and breakfast, you'll be within walking distance of a castle, museum and more walking trails that you can shake your hiking pole at. Plus, it being the centre of fishing on the island, you're never far away from a restaurant serving up freshly caught seafood. At the end of the day, you can dive into one of the cosy pubs to warm up by the crackling fire and linger over a dram or two of whisky. Whichever season you decide to visit the Isle of Lewis, you'll always receive a warm welcome from the friendly locals.

  • Use the B&B as a base for exploring the Isle of Lewis
  • Have a Scottish break without the wallet-busting prices
  • Wake up in a guestroom with historic character
  • Bring the kids to stay in one of the family-sized rooms

Country Cottages and Victorian Terraced B&Bs, Stornoway

Hotels just feel so out of place in such a quaint town and the bed and breakfasts in Stornoway have long been the staple accommodation of choice for visitors. These charming hideaways offer everything anyone could need for a comfortable stay – welcoming hosts, a friendly atmosphere and cosy guestrooms. Whether you are coming to the Outer Hebrides on a romantic Scottish getaway or bringing the whole family for an outdoorsy break, you'll always find a Stornoway bed and breakfast that fits the bill. Some are found in family-run terraced houses in the centre. Others are hidden away in stone-built country cottages, overlooking the coastline. You can even find several budget properties if you'd rather spend your money on eating out or the nearby attractions. If you're sold on a B&B, you can always find the perfect match on Expedia, which lists every property, along with detailed descriptions and photos. All you need to do is filter the results by price, location and dates, scroll through the B&Bs and book your favourite in just a few clicks. Booking your weekend break just got a whole lot easier with Expedia.

Guestrooms come in all shapes and sizes – some are doubles or twins, while others are family-sized rooms, so you can bring the kids along on your Scottish island break. Whichever you pick, you can expect most to come equipped with all the modern amenities you might find in a hotel, like a flat-screen TV on the wall, a kettle for making hot drinks and complimentary WiFi, which you can use to plan your break. If you pick right, you could have your own ensuite bathroom, with a separate shower unit and tub. You can even bring the dogs along if you opt for one of the pet-friendly B&Bs. Whatever you do, try to score one of the guestrooms that overlook the coast – the perfect view to wake up to after a comfortable night's sleep. Come daybreak, you can fuel up for a day of outdoor activities with a proper Scottish breakfast or a hearty bowl of porridge, washed down with tea and coffee. If Stornoway doesn't sound right for your break, how about a few nights in the Scottish capital, discovering things to do in Edinburgh, instead?

A Castle, Museum and Outdoor Activities Aplenty Near Your B&B, Stornoway

When you stay in a Stornoway bed and breakfast, you'll have plenty of things to do right on your doorstep. Many use the B&Bs as a base for exploring the rest of the island, whether that's on foot or by bicycle. You certainly won't be disappointed with the coastal trails if you've brought your walking boots with you. Back in town, you could amble around the old harbour, which is always dotted with yachts and colourful fishing boats. There's a friendly colony of seals, too, which bask around its edge. Take an afternoon to visit the 19th-century Lews Castle, a magnificent building built by a wealthy tea merchant, just outside town, or the Museum nan Eilean, which houses artefacts from the island's past. Alternatively, try the Lewis Loom Centre, which offers demonstrations of dyeing and spinning.
