The property

Braemore Cottage has been built and furnished to a high standard and offers luxurious comfort in spectacular surroundings. The hot tub is positioned to offer privacy but also a magnificent view out across the sea, where eagles frequently soar. The cottage is situated just 10 miles east of Tarbert, where the ferry arrives from the Isle of Skye. Here is the Harris Gin Distillery visitor centre and cafe and also the long-established Harris Tweed Centre. Head south of here for the fabulous expanse of sandy beaches all down the coast or head north for a day and explore the wild and mountainous Harris Hills. Or perhaps take a trip up to Lewis and visit the ancient Callanish Stones. The Isle of Scalpay is just a short distance and reached by bridge. This area has a fascinating fishing history and the owner of Braemore Cottage can also, if available, provide fresh shellfish in season. An area rich in wildlife, you can expect to see eagles, seals and otters close to Braemore Cottage and over on Scalpay, in spring and summer, you can enjoy walking through the flower rich machair - best achieved on the circular walk past the famous Eilean Glas lighthouse.Photographers and artists will find an abundance of subjects and the cyclists and runners can experience both undulating and challenging hills and tracks. Kayaking in the Kyles offer the opportunity to be accompanied by seals and otters but, whatever floats your boat, returning to the hot tub on the deck must surely be the icing on the cake! 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 £200.

About the location


Stornoway 36 miles.

Tarbert is the main town of the Isle of Harris and is taken from the Gaelic word for ‘isthmus’ or ‘crossing point’ meaning that it joins south Harris to north Harris and the Isle of Lewis. It is known for being the ferry port for Harris and enjoys a stunning setting with dramatic mountains forming a picturesque backdrop to the town. It is home to a selection of shops including Harris Tweed and Knitwear and dining options include The Harris Hotel serving a selection of dishes using locally sourced ingredients, the Pierhouse Café and Restaurant and Island Bites. While you are here you can stock up on shopping essentials at AD Munro and John Morrison. Just outside Tarbert there are wild beach walks, a wealth of watersports and fishing, and a short drive away is the North Harris Eagle Observatory. The Tarbert area is home to a number of art galleries and workshops showcasing a diverse range of artwork including Hebridean Ceramics, the Hebridean Design Company and Clisham Arts and Crafts.
