What was once the Sporting Lodge for previous landowners has been transformed into a small and comfortable Hotel. Owned and run by Niall and Amanda Leveson Gower, the Hotel benefits from another husband and wife team in charge of cooking and hospitality, John and Anne Buchanan.

Set in splendid isolation in its own grounds the Hotel is only 10 minutes drive from Lochmaddy ferry harbour and 25 minutes from Benbecula airport. Nothing is far away when you are on the Island and amongst the many things to do and see the renowned RSPB reserve at Balranald is 15 minutes drive. Thus Langass has become a popular retreat for all outdoor enthusiasts, be they bird watchers, anglers or walkers.

From the bedroom windows there are stunning views, with a stone circle in the foreground then over Langass sea loch to Ben Eaval and the Minch beyond. You will also see wild deer that have made Langass hill their home and a host of other wildlife. Golden Eagles and Ravens are often seen over the Lodge and the sea loch is considered one of the best spots to sight an otter.

Benefiting from rare shelter a garden is being created where guests can sit and relax and enjoy the view. Midge repellent available! Not only is there the stone circle, second best in the Hebrides after Callanish, but on the other side of Langass hill there is a very well preserved Neolithic chambered cairn. A marked path takes walkers past these sights.

All the bedrooms have been tastefully refurbished and have full facilities, the lounge bar and the sitting room/library benefit from peat fires and the well equipped drying room helps guests cope with the sometimes unpredictable vagaries of the Hebridean weather!
