Gearrannan Blackhouse Village / Isle of Lewis ***
Region: Western Isles (Outer Hebrides)
Gearrannan Blackhouse Village offers cottage accommodation, historical activities, and many fantastic walking, cycling and fishing opportunities.
This coastal crofting village is situated in a secluded bay within the district of Carloway, on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Since 1989 the local community trust Urras nan Gearrannan (the Garenin Trust) has been painstakingly restoring the once derelict properties and croft land to recreate an authentic settlement offering visitors modern facilities within the surroundings of times gone by.
Gearrannan was the setting for the 2019 Christmass Special of "Call the Midwife".
