More information about Scotisay View Cottage

Property information

Scotisay View Cottage is a lovely 4 star self-catering cottage which, from its elevated position, commands panoramic views across the sea to Skye. Drinishader is one of the many small crofting communities along what is known as The Golden Road which winds and twists through the East Coast of Harris - sometimes called The Bays because of its miniature fjords. The road is a single track road that connects all the tiny hamlets which have Viking or Gaelic names. The scenery is spectacular, encompassing what is sometimes described as a 'lunar' landscape, with rock that shines in the sun and beautiful lochs and inlets where seals bask on the rocks and a wide range of birds are to be seen. Why is it called The Golden Road? Rumour has it that it cost so much money that the locals wryly observed that ‘it must be made of gold’!

The house is warm, welcoming and the perfect place to relax and enjoy the panorama of sea, islands and sky. As the cottage is only 5 miles from Tarbert and the ferry terminal, you are soon at your destination after what may have been a long journey but we can guarantee you will soon unwind and settle into ‘island time’.

Harris has some of the most astonishing beaches to be found in the whole of the British Isles so be sure to enjoy them at Luskentyre, Horgabost, Seilibost and Scarista – fabulous expanses of sand and dunes with the machair cloaked in meadow flowers from spring until late summer.

Scotisay View Cottage is newly appointed and in excellent order throughout.

  • Alexandra Weller
    We really enjoyed our stay at Scotisay View Cottage. The thought and care that the owners have put into providing a lovely holiday home was much appreciated and we would not hesitate to return should we be visiting Harris again in the future. We loved the location and it made an excellent base for exploring Harris in all directions.
  • Sheila Ikin
    The cottage was really beautiful and obviously a lot of thought had gone into it as it lacked nothing. The position of it was spectacular - the conservatory a joy! Thank you also for your kind and efficient service.
  • Elaine Sykes
    Have just had a fantastic week in Scotisay View. What an amazing property for our holiday. It was so well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday but much more. The quality of everything was exceptional. The room at the back overlooking Scotisay became our favourite room with an amazing view both for breakfast and evening drinks. Thank you so much, we would love to return and would happily recommend the property to others. Sykes family x
  • Vivianne Spitters
    We stayed here last year just after Christmas. We like to see a bit of the world and enjoy staying in a comfortable house. Well Scotisay View Cottage is everything we need to enjoy a good vacation. It is just perfect. The house is very cosy, well equipped and comfortable. The lady of the house called me in advance to ask if we needed groceries because we would arrive 27th of December. Complements on that. Scotisay View Cottage is situated on a great spot on the Isle of Harris. The week before we stayed on the Isle of Lewis and both Isles are really beautiful. I am sure we will return to Lewis and Harris and i am sure that we will stay in Scotisay View Cottage again.
