Interesting place

Well marked from the road. Small car park by a Loch. About 10 minutes stroll to see the mill. Free entry.

disappointed that the gate from the car park is not accessible for the less able bodied or if you are not a size 10 in clothes! The gates either side of the pedestrian access were locked and we could not get through from the car park.

In the lovely village of Shabost this somewhat hidden gem is worth a wee stop. It is a nice stroll to get to the Mill and Kiln, not overly far but be prepared for a bit of a walk. The views of course are lovely, as they are throughout Lewis. There is not a large amount to see at the... More

A beautiful walk away from the road towards the coast. The two buildings have been reconstructed but are empty inside. Well worth a short walk to stretch your legs though, the path is excellently maintained and the scenery gorgeous on a sunny day.

No visitor centre, no café, just a tiny car park and a quarter-mile trek to this absolute gem, beautifully maintained by a local community trust: clearly a labour of love. Spectacular setting by the mill burn, which is inevitably also popular with midges. Bring a torch to appreciate the interiors of the mill and kiln buildings. In our view, not... More

We visited the Norse Mill and Kiln mid way between the Arnol Blackhouse and Callanish. It is a small but very interesting attraction set about a quarter of a mile back from the car parking area so may not suit infirm visitors. The buildings have been recreated from the originals with newly thatched roofs. They sit, charmingly, by a peaty... More

Worth a look- interesting hut and a lovely short walk from the car park to the mill. Just off the main road.
