Kershader - Ravenspoint, Isle of Lewis

About About this hostel

Ravenspoint is a family-friendly hostel in the heart of South Lochs, an area defined by the crystal clear waters of Loch Erisort to the north and the rugged Harris hills to the south.

Recently refurbished, offering comfortable, private and shared accommodation options in a spectacular setting, the hostel’s rural location is complemented by the convenience of an adjoining shop, café and fuel service.

South Lochs, a traditional, Gaelic speaking community, is about a 35 minute drive from the two ferry ports of Stornoway on Lewis and Tarbert on Harris and the hostel has a bus-stop at the door.

Based in a community rooted in Gaelic culture, it's a great base for cycling, walking and wildlife enthusiasts.
