Tour Scotland Self Catering Holiday Cottage Recommendations Isle Of Harris Outer Hebrides
Tour Scotland self catering holiday cottage recommendations on the Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides, Scotland.
Moorfield, Rodel, Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides. This fantastic holiday accommodation is attached to our home yet completely private and separate giving you the best of both worlds. We're on hand for advice and assistance about getting the best from your stay in The Outer Hebrides and we'll even bake a fresh loaf for you and look after your dog if you want to charter a boat to the outlying islands. However, we can also leave you completely alone for privacy and a totally uninterrupted holiday. The cottage overlooks the pre-reformation church of St Clements in Rodel, formerly the ferry port to Harris from Skye. The sea the cottage overlooks is the same stretch where Flora McDonald rowed Bonnie Prince Charlie 'over the sea to Skye'. We're situated at the south end of Harris just minutes from Leverburgh ferry terminal with regular crossings to Berneray and North Uist.
Tigh a' Chreagain is a spacious traditionally built 4 bedroom cottage situated in a beautiful rural location on the east coast of the Isle of Harris in the Western Isles. It is a 15 minute drive from the ferry port at Tarbert and a 20 minute drive to Leverburgh where you can take a boat trip to the uninhabited island of St Kilda. It is a very central base to explore the rugged coastlines of the east and the spectacular sandy beaches of the west coast of Harris.
Tigh Na Mara, Main House offers spacious, well equipped and tastefully decorated self-catering accommodation on the secluded shore of Carragreich Bay. All reception rooms and bedrooms have stunning sea views over to the isle of Scotsay. The house sleeps 5 to 7 adults or a family and consists of a 1 double room with a king size bed, 1 twin room and a single bedroom (2 camp beds and a cot are available on request.) The living room has a coal fire, TV, DVD, games and books. There is a large kitchen/diner with wood burning stove, range cooker, microwave, dishwasher, toaster and fridge freezer. In addition to the bathroom upstairs there is also a downstairs toilet. The house is heated by storage heaters.
Red House. Standing alone remote yet close to Tarbert on the rugged and beautiful coastline of the bays of Harris. The Red House (or Tigh Dearg), recently renovated from a traditional stone cottage and now a perfect getaway for two. The only access is by a 100 metre stony pathway.

The cottage is ideally located for walkers and cyclists, surrounded by scenery and central to Harris, as well as the whole of the Western Isles. The isolated situation together with the ambiance, we have created, with many hand crafted fixtures and fittings and artistic touches, make it ideal for a romantic break or honeymoon.A warm welcome awaits you here at Red House.
