    “Fabulous house right on the most incredible beach.”

    Spotlessly clean with tasteful decor and everything we needed for our stay. A home from home.

The property

1 Luskentyre is very definitely a luxury holiday home in the most enviable position, sitting as it does, almost on the sands of the world class Luskentyre beach - voted one of the top beaches in the world by Trip Advisor. It also offers flexible entry and departure days during low season. Newly renovated, this former croft house is now a most charming, atmospheric and comfortable holiday cottage for 4, with the added luxury of a hot tub in an oak gazebo, discretely positioned to the rear of the house and facing the west, for magnificent sunsets. To the front is the breathtaking expanse of Luskentyre beach which will draw you out to explore, paddle or swim. Peacefully situated, away from the main Harris road south, yet within easy drive of Tarbert, Scarista, Leverburgh and even the attractions of Lewis. However, it is hard to see why you would want to leave this idyllic piece of heaven, other than to perhaps enjoy a meal at one of the excellent restaurants in Harris where you can enjoy seafood or home cooked meals. The cottage was newly renovated in 2020 and is tastefully furnished. The kitchen is large and well equipped and ideal for those who will enjoy cooking the fine local produce which can be purchased, from seafood to local meat. The community store in Leverburgh is well stocked and will, with enough notice, bring in special requests such as items from an award winning butcher in Lewis. Whilst the islands are noted for their fresh seafood, vegetarians need not feel marginalised as An Talla offers delicious alternatives as does the Temple Cafe at Northton. We are sure you will find 1 Luskentyre really is Number One! A week here will rejuvenate you for months but will leave memories for a lifetime. 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. EPC Rating: Band D

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

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.

Note: The garden is fully enclosed. Note: Though electricity is included, charging for electric cars is not included in the rent. Note: Please bear in mind that this property is located on an island and therefore only accessible by plane or ferry
