White House Bed & Breakfast will close permanently at the end of September 2014



You can check availability and book from the "Check Availability" page.

Bookings can only be made from our web site and our rooms are not available on any other site.

Welcome to White House B & B and your hosts David and Lesley Prag. Upper Shader is a small crofting community on the Westside of  Lewis  and is ideally placed for exploring the North and West of the Island.

The Atlantic ocean is a 10 minute walk down to the bottom of our lane, where you can enjoy a coastal walk or view spectacular sunsets over the sea.  Sunrise over the Steinacleit stone circle can be enjoyed from our establishment.

Nearby within a fifteen minute walk is Steinacleit, a neolithic stone circle and a similar distance in the opposite direction, Clach an Truchal, the tallest standing stone in the UK.

Stornoway (Ferry/Airport) is a 25 minute drive and  Tarbert (Ferry) in Harris is an hours drive.

We are on the bus route to North Lewis and Stornoway, however if you wish to see the whole island we do not advise staying with us if you do not have your own transport.  The bus service is every two hours and not available on Sundays.

Five minutes drive from us is the Borve House Country Hotel where you can enjoy a bar snack or meal in the restaurant at lunch or in the evening (it is advisable to book during peak season). There is a mini market with free cash machine and petrol station within a 5 minute drive.

Eoropie, with its clean white sandy beach and popular tea room, is a 15 minute drive up the coastal road. Just five minutes drive further on lies the village of Ness with its harbour and white sandy beach.  Not far from here is the Butt of Lewis lighthouse . 

The famous Callanish Standing Stones and visitor centre (with an excellent tea room) is a 30 minute drive by car.  On the way stops at the Norse Mill,  Gearrannan Black House village and Dun Carloway Broch provide a rewarding experience.

We have off road parking and bicycles can be accommodated in our shed.

We look forward to welcoming you to White House B & B.

Check in time is between 4.30pm to 6.30pm with other times by arrangement

We are a no smoking establishment.
