One-Off Feature

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.  

General Info

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.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

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!

Further Details
Winter at Harris: For an island so far north, the Outer Hebrides have a remarkably mild climate. In winter it is one of the warmest places on earth at this latitude. Of course we will see some snow and light frost as well, but this only adds to the beauty of this place! Harris shoreline with its very varied habitats is the main reason why wildlife finds the islands so attractive. Visit Harris in the winter and you will enjoy extremes such as romantic sun sets, storms sweeping the waves at beaches, golfing on a beautiful quiet day, enjoying the northern lights, hiking under the midnight sun, canoeing in the archipelago, climbing the mountains, sailing on the ocean and walking on the many white sands. For more information about outdoor persuits like kayaking, bike hire, sailing trips and wind karting, please have a look at www.harrisoutdooradventure.co.uk. Your hosts Ian and Suzan Visser are very helpful in advising you on walks to remember, nice restaurants serving local food, where to go to see seals and otters, the bests spots for fishing. They can also provide you with local lobsters, fresh fish and scallops from the local diver. The neighbours across the road are serving fresh home cooked meals/seafood at the cottage on request. And what about enjoying a glass of wine after a good walk at the beach or having a sauna or a steam shower being rosy from a day spending outdoors. Welcomne to experience life on the edge!!!
