Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / The Hebrides / Outer Hebrides / Lewis and Harris / Isle of Lewis / Gearannan Blackhouse Village
Experience the authentic atmosphere of a Scottish island village at Gearannan Blackhouse Village. The historical village preserves a collection of so-called blackhouses, traditional dwellings that have been in use for centuries in this part of the world. In fact, some of the houses in the village were lived in well into the 20th century. Now you can take a stroll through the village, visit the local museum, have a meal at the cafe, and soak in the view of the surrounding hills and the sea. Instead of just passing through, consider staying in the village for a while by booking an apartment in one of the available blackhouses. Gearannan Blackhouse Village is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Isle of Lewis Edition.
Gearannan Blackhouse Village Reviews
Cosy, comfortable accommodation in a peaceful location with incredible views out to the Atlantic Ocean. Well equipped kitchen and great stock for the wood burning stove. We stayed for 2 nights which w... more »
Auch diese Blackhouses statten wir einen Besuch ab. Sahen noch wie alte Ambachte ausgeführt wurden. Sehr gute Erklärungen überall, und das bei traumhaftem Wetter. more »We also visit these blackhouses. See how old Ambachte were executed. Very good explanations everywhere, and this in fantastic weather.
£3,90 for entrance is way too much for 30 min experience. Only 2 houses are open for public. First one is restored house with interiors and stuff. The other one is a cinema room showing a film about tweed( wasn't able to see it because if electricity problems). Definitely good place worth a visit, but not much for the price.
Jewel in the crown of the area. Loved the smell of burning peat greeting us on arrival. Really liked the demo of the working 100 year old Harris tweed weaving machine. Super location, very picturesque and well worth a visit.
