Feadag Room - The room and bunks

Grinneabhat Posh-tel: Feadag Room

Isle of Lewis

Two-bunk en-suite room

Named after the golden plover, 'feadag' in Gaelic (pronounced fed-ag), this room has two curtained bunk beds, with a private shower room. Each bunk has its own light and charging point.

Communal kitchen facilities are available, in addition to a cèilidh space. For those who are not familiar, cèilidh is a Scottish Gaelic word for a gathering, from the root ri chèile; to come together. People come together to share songs, poetry, music and to pass on stories. What better way to get to know your fellow guests, and truly immerse yourself in the island experience.

The feadag (which also means whistle), along with the gille-feadag (meaning servant/attendant of the feadag), the dunlin, are iconic birds of the moorland, both breeding in huge numbers on the Lewis peatlands. The song of the golden plover, given in display flight, is described by the Gaelic mnemonic 'samhradh cridheach, tha e a’ tighinn' – ’a hearty summer, it is coming’.

This room has two curtained bunk beds, with a private shower room. Each bunk has its own light and charging point.
