Dreams can come true. Stay in a Shepherd’s Hut on the Scottish Isle of Lewis

September 10th 2020

Lots of availability for the rest of September and throughout October.

There’s an outdoor shower/toilet but without the usual access to the hostel’s kitchen and other communal areas, so no cooking facilities. What better excuse do you need to eat out?
