Standing alone remote yet close to Tarbert on the rugged and beautiful coastline of the bays of Harris. The Red House (or Tigh Dearg), recently renovated from a traditional stone cottage and now a perfect getaway for two. The only access is by a 100 metre stony pathway. Spectacular views across the sea to North Harris and the Isles of Scalpay and Scotsay. Closer by, watch the local seal population as they bask on the rocks below the house. The cottage is ideally located for walkers and cyclists, surrounded by scenery and central to Harris, as well as the whole of the Western Isles. The isolated situation together with the ambiance, we have created, with many hand crafted fixtures and fittings and artistic touches, make it ideal for a romantic break or honeymoon.A warm welcome awaits you here at Red House. A basket of complimentary supplies including local fresh provisions and something suitably sparkling, in a fully equipped kitchen/dining area. The open plan sitting room features a multifuel stove to lend a little atmosphere as the evening draws in.

If the Hebridean weather encourages you to stay in we have provided WiFi, radio, TV and DVD player, a collection of DVDs and a reclining sofa! We have supplied a selection of local interest books and maps. In the slate lined, shower, wet room, we have merged mod.cons with traditional style. You will find fluffy towels on the heated towel rail and underfloor heating.

What once was attic space is now a mezzanine floor, surrounded by handcrafted iron railings. There is a comfortable sitting area with beautiful views from the roof windows, and a king sized bed with quality linen.

For days out or just roaming the hills we have provided a picnic basket for your use. There is also a rechargeable torch for any night forays, perhaps to the pub, about 20 minutes walk away.

"Peace and quiet coupled with creature comforts in a glorious spot."

Lovely cottage, very well appointed, warm and comfortable, a credit to Tracey and Alastair. Close to village, road and ferry terminal. Seals, ponies, sheep and seagulls all in evidence. Stunning views - when the sun shines! Only drawback is the hundred yard or so walk to the cottage from the car park. In the teeth of Hebridean wind and rain this short distance can leave one very wet and windblown. Great place, great people, great holiday.

"Wonderful, secluded, beautiful cottage"

Fantastic location - handy for Tarbert & the ferry, but felt a million miles away from everyday life. The cottage is in a beautiful location, with views out to scalpay & Skye. Tracey has kitted out the cottage to such a high degree - everything from the welcome hamper of essentials (& prosecco) to the amazing reclining sofa (we're getting one!). We've returned from our trip refreshed but itching to get back there!

"Peace, comfort and wonderful views"

We have wanted to visit Harris for a long time and finally got round to doing so this year. In choosing Red House we feel incredibly lucky because it 's set in such a glorious location and whilst feeling wonderfully remote is in fact really handy for Tabart and the ferry. The cottage itself is incredibly well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The mezzanine area in particular was a delight and from there we were able to watch heron, seals and on one occasion, a pair of golden eagles.(No kidding.) We only booked for the one week but left wishing we had booked for longer and promising to return again next year. It's would be difficult to see how anyone would feel otherwise after only a weeks stay in Red House.

"Perfect get away from it all hideaway"

Beautiful cottage in lovely location. Well equipped and comfortable. Great for wildlife spotting. Tracie and Alisdair have done a great job on this cottage and were very nice hosts. Can't wait to go back.
