How to Get Here

Hebridean Holiday Cabins are located in the village of Breasclete, on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis in north west Scotland. The Isle of Lewis and Harris are one land mass, and form the top part of the chain of islands known as the Outer Hebrides or Western Isles.

There are several travel connections to mainland Scotland, including 2 main ferry ports in Stornoway and Tarbert, Stornoway Airport and a smaller ferry connecting the Uist’s to Lewis and Harris. Please refer to the map at the bottom of this page which shows the ferry connections available.

Getting Here by Ferry:-

Please note it is advisable to book ferry journey’s as soon as possible as routes can often be fully booked at peak travel times.

The most popular and cost effective way of getting here is by Ferry, from Ullapool to Stornoway or Uig (Skye) to Tarbert. Ferry’s run daily with 2 crossings a day from Ullapool and Tarbert, all services are run by Caledonian Macbrayne www.calmac.co.uk

The Ullapool to Stornoway crossing is 2hrs and 30min, and the Uig to Tarbert crossing is 1hr and 45min. The Tarbert ferry crossing is shorter and cheaper, but the drive to the port of Uig is slightly longer, but can be more scenic if you are travelling from the south. The Ullapool to Stornoway crossing is slightly longer, but has better road and public transport links through Inverness which enables a shorter drive.

Getting Here by Plane:-
