Each of our treasure hunts on the Isle of Lewis takes you on a journey to solve one of our great Hebridean Mysteries….of course when we say “solve” we mean as best we know, for fable and time have clouded the actual events….maybe on the way you can uncover the real truths?

This is the easy question! Every year we welcome guests to our holiday home and we love having them come to visit us. We honestly hope you would like to be one of our guests too! With every guest we always spent time explaining what there was to see and do, and every now and again we would accompany some of our guests to the sights.

Then it dawned on us!

Why not come up with a great way for our guests to see the island and have fun without the need for us to bore them with hours of explanations and maps! This is where the idea of our treasure hunt came from and we love it. We hope you do too!

Three Great Options

Since there is so much to see and do, and some of the distances can be quite far (especially on our single track roads) we have created three unique hunts, with three unque sets of clues and puzzles. So why not give them all a try?

Our Charity Choice

We give £2 from every purchase of our treasure hunts to our chosen charity.

For 2019 we have elected to support the Western Isles Cancer Care Initiative


Our treasure hunts are engaging and fun but they are also designed to take you, your friends and your family to all the key sights on the island. The self-guieded, at your own pace hunts are perfect for a short break or a vacation where you will be able to spread it over a few days and go back to the things you really enjoyed!

Easy, No Stress, Hunting

Unlike Sherlock or Poirot our hunts are easy on the mind and body. With only light walking at each stop, and plenty opportunities to feed up at our island eateries whilst you hunt, these hunts are the perfect way to inject fun into your trip!
