Glen Tolsta is a small village lying on the North-East of Lewis a mile before arriving in the larger village of Tolsta.  Nestled in the glen and reputedly haunted this village consists of four houses and quite a few ruined crofthouses.  Its past inhabitants were cleared here last century from the South Lochs villages of Lemreway and Orinsay.  Overlooking Broad Bay and Point it commands a magnificent and windswept viewpoint.
