The property

* Superior newly built property completed Spring 2022* Please note that the pictures represent the garden in March 2022. At this point the landscaping had not yet been fully completed, grass seed is to be sown and a lawn area will be there from mid May 2022. Updated pictures will be added later this year. Taigh Rona is a luxurious retreat and has the most enviable position on Luskentyre Bay. It is designed so that the view is maximised whether you are in the main social room or as you move through this house. This is a cleverly planned house in two parts, linked by a glazed multi-function entrance area, with the bedroom wing being accessed through a door which ensures separation from the social space offering peace and restfulness. There are two master bedrooms with ensuite facilities located on the ground floor, each with picture window across the bay. The twin-bedded rooms, upstairs, share a family shower room and on the landing, area is a seating area, a perfect spot to immerse yourself with a riveting read or to absorb the amazing view. Only metres from these windows the tide ebbs and flows twice daily. Whether watching the wide variety of birdlife on the shore, the turquoise blue, sparkling sea against the white shell sand, or the ever-changing weather, what is certain, is that you will be captivated from the start. Walking directly from the house you can climb the hills of Beinn Dhubh and its neighbour Beinn Losgaintir to capture the sensational views beyond. If you are lucky, you may see a golden or even the larger white-tailed eagle soaring in the sky above you. Alternatively, for a more leisurely stroll, explore the shoreline to the huge sand dunes at Luskentyre beach and wander back along the single-track road to the house. Further afield there are plenty more beaches to explore within an hour’s drive including Scarista, Huisinis, Northton, Seilebost and Horgebost. Recently popularised in Peter May’s novelThe Coffin Road which links the golden road on the east side of Harris to the cemetery at Luskentyre. Is a wonderful circular walk of approximately 9 miles for those who enjoy off road walking. 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 £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.
