At Westend we are surrounded by extensive moorland. A short walk will take you a quiet single track road, to the former shieling area. Enroute there are fresh water trout lochs and a view for miles under the big Hebridean skies.
This picture is a shieling, on the site which a family claimed for their turf dwelling, or ‘taigh samhraidh’. Those Hebridean transhumance dwellings were used by women and children when the cattle were taken to fresh pasture between May and September.
At Westend we have reduced the number of letting rooms with an outdoor seating option. Guests have their own entrance and shower room. Our cleaning regime will be following the emerging Covid-19 guidelines.
For walkers on the Hebridean Way we offer a tea stop with outdoor seating, wifi and toilet facilities.
For walkers staying overnight there is a takeaway delivery option as there are no eating places near by.
