There are two Golf courses which are easily accessible from Dollag's Cottage. The Stornoway Golf Club is located in the town of Stornoway and is only a few minutes walk from the town centre and about half an hour by car from Shawbost.
The Isle of Harris Golf Club is located in a most dramatic location on the west coast of Harris, about 1.5 hours by car from the cottage. The Harris golf course is open to non-members and operates an honesty box system. The picture to the left shows the third green on the Harris course.
The outer Hebrides are said by some to be the most windy inhabited place on earth so the wind is likely to play a major role in any round played on the islands where the challenge lies not just in beating the course and your fellow players but also in beating the weather.
