The Hebrides/Skye region
Seaside Cottage is in the crofting township of Ardhasaig, and ideally placed to explore both Lewis and Harris. Two miles outside the main village of Tarbert of the Isle of Harris, it is well placed to access local amenities and the ferry port.
The Isle of Harris has many natural attractions and most of our guests come to walk the hills, cycle the roads, watch the wildlife and peruse the local galleries. Scotland's countryside benefits from the 'Right to Roam' meaning that you can head off in any direction you choose, no rigid adherence to footpaths here and as the island is sparsely populated you can soon be well away from civilisation. The island also plays host to the Harris Mountain Festival every September. Guided walks are run throughout the summer months by the North Harris Trust. Harris Development co-ordinates other guided walks throughout Harris and Scaly.
Golden Eagles and Sea Eagles are some of our largest birds and much effort has gone into ensuring their continued breeding success. The North Harris Eagle Observatory in Glen Meavaig has become a popular local attraction. We also have an abundance of other birdlife and our waters are home to porpoises, basking sharks and dolphins.
The island is home to the world famous Harris Tweed and there are various outlets selling both bolts of cloth and finished items made from this excellent product.
The Harris landscape attracts artists who come to live and work and there are many galleries to choose from throughout the island.
We have some of the best beaches in the world and many have won international awards for their cleanliness and beauty. The waters are pristine and abound with sea life. The sands are golden and often completely deserted, you can easily feel that the place is your own private paradise.
Being so remotely located, the island has held back the tide and retains many of its traditions. You'll meet many local characters who still croft and fish in the old ways. A friendly welcome will greet you wherever you go, especially out driving our roads when people thank you for giving way. The island is very safe and crime rates are low.
Kilda Cruises and Seaharris operate trips to the surrounding islands of St Kilda and the Shiants. You can also arrange trips to Scarp, Taransay (home of the BBC series, Castaway) and Pabbay. There are also a couple of outdoor centres which can arrange sea kayaking trips, climbing and other pursuits.
Isle of Harris
The Isle of Harris is one of the islands making up the Outer Hebrides. To the north and joined by land is the Isle of Lewis, home of the main town of Stornoway, the Callanish Stones and the Butt of Lewis. To the south are the Uists, accessible by ferry from Leverburgh and at the very south of the archipelago is the island of Barra.
Most people arrive on the island by ferry from Ullapool to Stornoway or from Uig on Skye to Tarbert, Harris. The island can also be accessed by plane arriving in Stornoway and flights are available from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness.
