The Wee Wooden Yurt at Caolas Gallery is a unique amazing space, a green roofed, original wooden round house with picture windows giving an uninterrupted view of the sea across to the Isle of Scalpay and South East Harris. Features include a central dome roof window, separate shower room, a kitchen, comfortable chairs and wood burning stove, and of course a double bed. The property enjoys a southerly aspect with masses of natural light. Is well insulated, warm and cosy
“If you want to waken up to an amazing view and wind down in the evenings to a beautiful sun set, this is your place. The yurt is a high standard of ‘glamping’ (I’ve stayed in far worse hotels) with a comfortable bed, great shower, a range of cooking utilities. It’s surprisingly spacious. It’s clean, dry and super cozy when you get the fire on. A hidden little gem that I’d most definitely return to. It was an ideal island getaway.”
4 Tobair Mairi is an excellent Studio apartment located in the heart of Harris in the old village of Tarbert next to all amenities such as hotels shops cafes marina sports centre and of course the famous Harris gin distillery. It is Ideally placed to explore all the beaches and scenery that Harris and Lewis has to offer and then return home to relax with a glass. This apartment is excellent for disabled travellers.
“We loved our stay at Malcolms place. 10/10 for location - central Tarbert just opposite the gin distillery and 1min to the Ferry. A few minutes from a few little shops, bank, eating places so ideal base for exploring Harris. Great value for money, bigger than we expected. Spotlessly clean. Lovely little touches of breakfast stuff, fresh flowers and chocolates. Easy check-in and private parking outside front door.”
A conversion of one of the few surviving Black Houses built by the last family to leave St. Kilda. Steeped in history and natural beauty the cottage is ideal for beach lovers, walkers, cyclists, bird watchers, fishermen and families looking for the perfect relaxing holiday.
“This is a fantastic place to stay in The Western Isles. It has a historic feel to it being an updated version of one of the old black houses which puts you in immediate touch with the rich and accessible heritage of these amazing islands. The location is quite perfect between the rugged, rocky hills and pristine beaches of Harris and perhaps the better known locations of Lewis to the north. The house has a lovely little fireplace, a cosy living room, a very well equipped kitchen and an amazing collection of books related to the islands. The good weather provided us the opportunity for long walks and discovering the wonderful places on offer, but equally, the compulsory “bad” weather gave us the chance to relax and decompress in a calm, peaceful (TV and internet free) environment. Christian is a great host - very responsive and welcoming. All in all, a highly recommended place to visit Harris and Lewis.”
