The Isle of Lewis is the most northerly of the group of islands known as the Hebrides or Western Isles. Steeped in history and culture the island boasts numerous sites of historical interest, endless sandy beaches renowned with surfing enthusiasts and countless lochs and lochans offering salmon and trout fishing.
Stornoway is the main town of the island, home to the Western Isles Council with a population of just over 6,000 which accounts for around a third of the islands inhabitants. The economy is a mixture of traditional businesses such as fishing, Harris Tweed and farming, with more recent influences like tourism, the oil industry and commerce. The rest of the island is more traditional and relies a great deal upon fishing, crofting and the weaving of tweed. For many islanders, peat is still a main source of heating fuel and during the summer months, it can be seen being cut and harvested out on the moors.
The Doune Brase Hotel is situated in the town of Carloway which is 23miles west of Stornoway and is within minutes of lovely beaches, excellent fly fishing, world class archaeological sites and breath-taking walks.
Travelling to the island is by air or sea with daily ferry services operating between the main land and the surrounding islands by Caledonian MacBrayne. The island airport which is located approx. 3 miles east of Stornoway town centre, offers daily flights to Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh airports.
