The house boast excellent views over sea loch Obbe, the romantic village of Leverburgh and the remote South Harris hills.

This extraordinary house has been restored to very high standards and is beautifully decorated with luxury furnishings for a comfortable and relaxing stay at the Isle of Harris.
This extraordinary house, which has been thoughtfully restored and luxuriously furnished, is just a short walk from the white sandy beaches of Northton and the shifting dunes and vast expanse of sand at Scarista. It really is the perfect base for walking, fishing, cycling, kayaking, sailing, seal watching and exploring the many wonders of the Outer Hebrides. The accommodation is spacious yet cosy, the sea views from the garden stretch over the Sound of Harris, and the location is second to none. And Harris itself is breathtaking in its beauty, wonderfully wild and remote and yet always warm and welcoming. Come and experience this unforgettable part of Scotland for yourself.
Leverburgh is a very small fishing village with a pier for trips to St Kilda and the Shiants and a slipway for the Calmac ferry to the Uists. It also has a post office, a shop, an Outdoor Centre and a pub/restaurant. Harris is an outdoor pursuit paradise, with everything from sea kayaking and sailing to mountain biking and land yachting on offer. The owner of the house runs an outdoor pursuits centre. You could play a round of golf or take a boat trip to the neighbouring islands, or you could try your hand at fishing - there are lots of salmon, brown trout and sea trout in the sea loch in front of the house and in the rivers in the hills beyond. And keep your eye out for the resident wildlife, from otters, seals, whales and porpoises to puffins, gannets and even golden eagles.
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. For more detailed travel information please see the website.
