Beautiful Garenin

picture of a beach

The island has a unique beauty and diversity of natural landscapes and unspoilt habitats. Garenin is a small crofting community on the Atlantic west coast. Being on an island and at the vagaries of nature brings a sense of perspective and visitors often comment on that. It is healthy to be away from the pressures of modern life and to experience the endless long days in the summer and the northern lights in colder days.....

Our Lewis Roots

picture of black houses

The house was build in 1951 and is typical of many homes built at that time. My family are from the island and the culture and language are an important reason to retain the house in an island, which is simultaneously changing and unchanging.

Lewis families typically retain links with the community although dispersed over many countries......

"Thank you very much, lovely cottage, in a lovely location. Everything we needed was here and more.

Had a fantastic time exploring the island. The local community were extremely friendly and gave us good advice of what to visit. We would recommend the Iron Age Round house on Great Bernera, at Bosla (Beautiful Beach), the Golden Road on South Harris and the local beaches at Dalmore and Dolbey, ……

"I enjoyed my week here. The weather was great and I was never kept in. The stone circles were very impressive but even more so the beaches were superb. I didn’t know Lewis (and Harris) was balmy islands. I kid you not, I could have been in Spain. The places amaze me also The numbers living here are tremendous, being used to the highlands, where no one lives.

I’ll come again.
