Located on a 6 acre croft on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis, Kabuis provides a one bedroomed self catering apartment and a two bedroom holiday chalet.

At the east wing of 25 South Shawbost is their original and most attractive self-catering unit in the space that was once Rhoda's father's workshop. A self-contained ground-floor wing. It's ideal for a couple, though further rooms are available by arrangement in the main house. Incidentally, the family home, with its attractive proportions and lovely woodwork, was built by Rhoda's father, Angus Murray, and is one of the most solid and original in the district.

The kitchen is fully equipped and pleasantly finished and the sitting room boasts interesting island books, a colour television and even some CDs to play on the stereo. The main bedroom is a double room, complete with immaculate en suite facilities.

Across the road is their second self-catering facility - a newly built, tastefully furnished chalet-style cottage, boasting one twin and one double bedroom as well as a spacious lounge - stocked with interesting books - the magnificently fitted kitchen/dining room and a bathroom with all conveniences. Ideal for, say, a young family, the cottage also boasts a decked, verandah area to the south and west where guests may particularly enjoy sitting of an evening before one of our celebrated local sunsets.

In both units linen and towels are provided and the price is, of course, inclusive of full central heating and gas-cooking; electricity in the chalet, being a separate building, is metered. The facilities are well maintained and the Macleod's "welcome package" for all new arrivals includes fresh and smoked salmon, together with fresh flowers and fruit, with the choice of tea and coffee and a selection from the day's home baking. A high standard of cleanliness is maintained and expected at all times

Oh, and - yes - Rhoda and Neil are delighted to welcome children and dogs are also welcomed by arrangement with a extra fee being charged.

Local amenities include Shawbost Free Church, to which most villagers still adhere - there are services at 12 noon and 6 pm each Sunday, the morning service being usually bilingual and that at night in English. Shawbost Post Office sells a few very basic goods; there is a more substantial shop off the main road at South Bragar, and an excellent one at Barvas, the Welcome In Filling Station.
