Seaspray bothy is one of two unique chalets inspired by the traditional Scottish bothy.

Located in the crofting village of Arivruaich, Seaspray is set in stunning scenery on the shores of Loch Seaforth. It is conveniently positioned midway between the ferry terminals of Stornoway and Tarbert.

Although Seaspray is a stone's throw from the loch shore with no one to overlook you, the A859 is at the end of the croft and a bus stop 5 minutes walk away allowing easy access to the rest of the Island.

The space
A continental style breakfast can be provided each morning if required. This includes orange juice, crusty bread rolls, muffins, fresh fruit, cheese, porridge pots, cereal selection and milk. This is charged at £9 per person per day. Please let me know in your booking communication if you would like to book breakfast.

Seaspray Bothy has a bedroom and a bathroom. It is furnished with a luxurious super king-sized bed, bed linen and towels. The bathroom contains a large walk-in shower and is large enough to hang any wet clothing.

Seaspray has underfloor heating to create a comfortable warmth in the tiled floor and a wood burning stove to heat the room. The wood burner is supplied with firelighters, kindling and fuel and guests are encouraged to light the fire and experience the stunning atmosphere of this location.

Seaspray and Driftwood Bothies are linked by the shared space of a covered courtyard. Outdoor seating is provided for guests to enjoy the ever changing scenery.

Cooking facilities are only provided outdoors beneath the covered courtyard. There is a portable electric hob which is free to use. Plates, cutlery, utensils and cookware are all provided. A BBQ is also provided and can be used with a fee of £10 per night which includes the fuel, set up and clean down the next day. An area to cook using your own cooking stoves is also provided.

In the courtyard there is also a Belfast sink with hot water for any washing up required, along with outdoor seating and table.

A small fridge is provided inside the Bothy to store any perishable foods.

The floor of Seaspray is tiled and level to allow unrestricted access to all areas including the shower. There is a small step into the Bothy from the courtyard.

Where you’ll be

Na h-Eileanan an Iar, Scotland, United Kingdom

Although named separately the Isle of Lewis and the Isle of Harris are one island.
Seaspray bothy is on the Isle of Lewis but in the middle of the island as a whole, being just north of the border between Lewis and Harris. It is surrounded by the beautiful scenery of upper Loch Seaforth.
The stunning beaches of Lewis and Harris can all be reached in around an hour or less by car. The largest town, Stornoway, is 18 miles away and has two supermarkets, plenty of restaurants and many interesting local shops.
