Gearranan Hostel, a magical experience of a bygone era.
Gearranan Hostel is an ancient blackhouse in a village unchanged for hundreds of years. Built in a sheltered sandy cove of the Atlantic Ocean on Lewis, the furthermost outreach of the Outer Hebridean islands. From the hostel follow the waymarked walk to Dalmore Beach and onwards to Dalbeg Beach. Pick up a pamphlet at the hostel to read about the history, archaeology and wildlife that you pass. A four mile round trip gives you three hours of glorious peace walking on moorland and coast. For more history and the ghosts of yesteryear you can walk to the south from Gearranan to find the deserted township of Laimishader.Find out more about Gearrannan Hostel & Bunkhouse
