A gorgeously romantic and arty little retreat for two with wonderful sea views, on the Isle of Harris in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides. It’s a wonderful bolthole, just five minutes walk from Northton’s five silver shell-sand beaches and the well known Scarista beach.
Perfectly located on the island’s rocky south coast, Puffin Tiny House is a cosy retreat for two people, just a short walk from Northton beaches, Scarista beach, and the Cheapabhal / Maodal hills with their breathtaking views. A wonderful escape with a touch of luxury. The Isle of Harris offers a wealth of things to do and places to visit. It’s wild and wonderfully remote with a beautiful rocky coastline and many white sandy beaches. It is a paradise for anglers (fly fishing and sea fishing), excellent for birdwatching, golfing, seal watching, hiking, biking, surfing, kayaking and boat trips. Wild walks and the unspoiled beautiful nature are the main attraction; for nightlife, look not for neon lights but stars.
You will find plenty to do here whether you want a relaxing or a more active holiday. The beaches are simply outstanding - beautiful stretches of white sand and blue seas, often with scarcely any people - they are a match for Caribbean beaches any day! Harris Outdoor Adventure, Leverburgh Pier, provides rental or tuition in mountain biking and sea kayaking. Furthermore they arrange for seal watching and fishing trips. Harris is a paradise for anglers, fly fishing or sea fishing; mostly there is a good catch! If you like to go out, several excellent restaurants serving local (sea)food are nearby. You can also order lobsters and scallops from the local fishermen or try to catch your own tea! Also nearby is the well known Isle of Harris Golf Course. The ocean waters are clean and clear and home to many seals, porpoises and otters. Whether you wish a romantic, relaxing or active break, this is the ideal location to ensure a truly memorable Hebridean experience!
If you’re coming by car, the two main driving routes to Scotland from the south are via the east of England on the A1, or via the west using the M6, A74(M) and M74. From Edinburgh or Glasgow there are a few options. If you`re coming by ferry, the ferry arrives into Harris from Uig into Tarbert, and Berneray to Leverburgh. The ferry from Ullapool-Stornoway, followed by a 50 minute drive, will take you to Northton. By air, Scotland is well served by the budget airlines operating from airports around London and from other regional hubs, as well as by British Airways and BMI. You can fly from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Aberdeen and Benbecula directly to Stornoway Airport.

The Tiny house has its own private garden and private allocated parking.
Visit Harris and you will enjoy extremes such as romantic sun sets, storms sweeping the waves at beaches, golfing on a beautiful quiet day, if lucky enjoying the northern lights, hiking under the midsummer sun, canoeing in the archipelago, climbing the mountains, and walking on the many white sands. Harris shoreline with its very varied habitats is the main reason why wildlife finds the islands so attractive, a birdwatcher’s paradise. Even the rare Corncrake is here aplenty. Sytske, your host will be very helpful in advising you on walks to remember, nice restaurants serving local food, where to go to see seals and otters, the best spots for fishing. She is also very happy to advice you where to get local lobsters, fresh fish and scallops from the local diver. Croft 36, across the road, daily bake fresh bread and more goodies. What about enjoying a glass of wine after a good walk at the beach with beach views, being rosy from a day spending outdoors. Welcome to experience life on the edge!
