Gress and Broad Bay

Broad Bay, also known as Loch a' Tuath, is found on the east coast of Lewis, in the Western Isles. It stretches from Tolsta Head (8 miles north of Stornoway) down to Tiumpan Head on the Point peninsula, and inland as far as Laxdale.

The farmhouse and shooting lodge of Gress is situated almost 8 miles north of Stornoway, just south of Tolsta Head.
