Travel to the Island of Great Bernera, which is joined to the main island by a narrow bridge. It is a rocky island, dotted with lochans, fringed by a few small lobster-fishing settlements, owned by the Queen’s former herald.
Arriving near the deserted village of Bostadh, you will come upon an entire Iron Age settlement perched above a precious little bay of golden sand. The settlement was only discovered here in the early 90’s when gale-force winds revealed it. One of the ancient dwellings has now been completely restored: the Iron Age House. Enjoy a visit inside where you can absorb the warm gloom and sharp smell from the real peat fire, whilst a local guide describes the way of life of the ancient folk who lived here.Afterwards, there will be a chance to explore the small graveyard nearby and go for a stroll on the wide beach of fine white sand with its gorgeous views out to the turquoise-blue Atlantic.
On your return journey, you will be able to admire the beautiful scenery and views of Carloway Broch to the north.
