Welcome to Otter Bay Pods
I am very excited to bring you the first of four self catering glamping pods situated on a private, secluded site just a 10 minute drive from Stornoway town centre/ferry port and 5 minutes from Stornoway airport. The pod is close to a bay and a short drive to the local beaches and a 15 minute walk to a nearby Glen where you might be lucky enough to spot an Otter. The site is a few hundred yards off the A866 which takes you directly to and from Stornoway town centre. There is one pod on site as I only opened for business last year. A second pod is arriving in the near future and an outside seating area will be completed soon. You will therefore have complete privacy during your stay.
The glamping pod sleeps a maximum of four people. Unfortunately at this time I cannot accommodate very young infants as I do not have a cot.
Dogs are not permitted, however, the fourth pod will be dog friendly.
The pods are self contained (no trips to a toilet block in the middle of the night!) and come with an en-suite WC/shower room, small double bed, kitchenette (with single electric hob, mini fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle) dining area, sofa-bed (suitable for two younger children or one adult) and Freeview TV. We provide you with complimentary tea/coffee/sugar, shampoo/conditioner, towels, bed linen & a hairdryer.
For your convenience there is a small but well stocked shop 'Buth An Rubha and Café Roo', Old Knock School, Knock, Point, with an alcohol licence & cashpoint, just a few minutes drive up the road (on the A866 to Stornoway).
We hope to have Wi-Fi on site very soon (we're working on it 😁) but in the meantime you can connect to the internet using your mobile data allowance.
There is so much to do and see on the island from fishing, golfing, sightseeing and birdwatching. In the summer Stornoway plays host to the Hebridean Celtic Festival attracting around 18,000 revellers. For something more historic, visit the standing stones in Callanish circa 2700 BC or the Blackhouses in Arnol where you can see a traditional tweed loom in action.
There is an abundance of wildlife to see on the Isle of Lewis. If you fancy some Whale/Dolphin spotting then Tiumpan Head just a few miles from Otter Bay Pods is famous for being one of Europe's best locations.
For cycling enthusiast, how about a bike ride along the Hebridean Way, a 184 mile long on-road route that takes you all over the Outer Hebrides.
If you want to take it easy, take a stroll along one of the many award winning sandy beaches for some Seal spotting.
Venture into Stornoway with it's selection of bars, restaurants and shops or visit Lews Castle which has recently been refurbished and take a stroll in the lovely grounds where you can see Salmon making their way along the Creed river.
Trip advisor ranked the island of Lewis and Harris number one in the European category and fifth best island in the world in the Travellers Choice Awards 2014 so what are you waiting for... get booking!
