    “This is our fourth visit to the stunning Oran na Mara.”

    It just gets better and better. The light and views over Scarista Beach from the windows are to die for. We did some storm watching. It is so comforting reading a book and occasionally looking up and viewing the weather - bliss. The home has everything one needs, so comfortable, cosy and warm.

    It just gets better and better. The light and views over Scarista Beach from the windows are to die for. We did some storm watching. It is so comforting reading a book and occasionally looking up and viewing the weather - bliss. The home has everything one needs, so comfortable, cosy and warm. We have visited all the stunning beaches, either a walk away or short drive, you are spoilt for choice. This time we contacted a local fisherman Donald Norman, and he brought us lobster, langoustine, squat prawns, crab claws, what a cooks joy, and so delicious. Back in Edinburgh would have cost a fortune, but a reasonable cost here. He fishes from Leverburgh and even delivered to our door! A must if you love seafood. The locals are so kind and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this home. What are you waiting for? Get yourself to paradise!

The property

Òran na Mara (Song of the Sea) is situated in one of the world's most stunning locations - the west coast of the Isle of Harris. The islands have been voted number 1 in Europe and number 5 in the world by Trip Advisor and the beaches regularly appear in lists of the best in the world. This wonderful luxurious house is the result of many years of planning, research and design. Overlooking white sand beaches, hills, islands, sunsets and the ever-changing turquoise Atlantic Ocean, Òran na Mara takes maximum advantage of the incredible views by being curved with floor to ceiling glass windows in the main living area. The house is planned as a contemporary space, equipped with luxury facilities, but with traditional local features such as marram grass thatch and stone walling. It is insulated to the highest standards and has a peat and wood fired stove in the snug area which divides the dining and living areas. Even the TV has a lift so that it doesn't interrupt the views across the house and can be secreted away when not in use. The house will always be let on an exclusive basis and at quieter times of the year it is possible to be rented at a discount for use by a couple only. Òran na Mara is an iconic building in a truly stunning location, and with a very high specification and level of design both externally and internally. It has nearly 200 square metres of interior space with a carefully planned layout to provide a flowing space and high domed ceilings. The house floods with light in the daytime, with outstanding views in all directions across the beach, the sea and beyond to the north Harris hills, but is cosy and warm at night. With bespoke hand-made furniture and beautiful fabrics and artworks, every room is a delight in its own way. A superb Sonos Surround system allows you to listen to your favourite music throughout the house, or in selected areas. If you are a golfer, Òran na Mara looks across the Harris Golf Course to the sea. The course is often referred to as the most spectacularly situated golf course anywhere. Membership is not required, but booking is essential. The islands can be reached by flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness; or by ferry from Uig on Skye to Tarbert, or Ullapool to Stornoway.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
