Tolsta Chaolais (Tolastadh à Chaolais) is a crofting village on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. It consists of about forty houses, clustered around Loch à 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“.
Recognised as one of the prettiest villages on the island, Tolsta Chaolais is nestled between a sea loch, Loch Roag, and a freshwater loch, Loch à Bhaile.
This traditional crofting village, where croft animals and livestock roam freely, provides an ideal base for immersing in island life and touring Lewis and Harris.
