Tolsta Chaolais (Tolastadh a Chaolais) is a crofting township on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. It consists of about forty houses, clustered around Loch a’ Bhaile, about a mile from the A858 road, between Callanish and Carloway. The name has a Norse element, Tolsta, combined with a Gaelic element, Caolas, and means “Farm by the Strait”.
