“Best location on Harris!” Perfect, secluded location at the waters edge but only ten minutes from the ferry terminal. So quiet, Bob the seal visited at least once daily, welcomed by deer in the garden on arrival day then frequently throughout the weeks stay. Rock pools on the doorstep, children spent hours just exploring the rocks and making great memories.It was hard to drag them away to explore the rest of the island but we all fell in love with the amazing beaches.Endless sands and practically empty Luskentyre and Scarista were favourites a short drive from the cottage. The cottage itself a perfect balance of tasteful decoration and many homely touches (the welcome wine very much appreciated!) As two families sharing the main house and end house we had more than ample space for all.We were all sad to leave and can’t wait to return to Harris!
“Perfect in every way” Situated in a quiet location 5 minutes off the A859 from Tarbet to Leverburgh you find the caravans, almost tucked into the hillside. We were welcomed by Neil who set about switching on the gas, checking all was well, fetching linen because I had not read that you bring your own - a very warm, friendly start. He came the next day to make sure everything was as it should be and on the last day when the storm was causing ferry disruption to assure us the caravan was there if required for another night. Loved all the time spent at Grosebay Caravans and have no hesitation in highly recommending. Thank you both.
“a fantastic cottage and location” We had a lovely holiday at Glen Carragrich (helped by superb weather). The cottage was a true home from home well presented and comfortable .We fell in love with Harris and Lewis with its peaceful serenity and simplicity and wonderful beaches. Touring the whole of Harris ans Lewis was relatively easy from Glen Carragrich but it was alawys a pleasure to return to Glen Carragrich at the end of the day
“A photographers paradise” Met by Ken on arrival and given a very good briefing of all the island attractions and places to eat. The complimentary wine, flowers and biscuits are a nice touch. The accommodation is very clean and contains all you require for a short stay. It is also very convenient for the town of Stornaway and the routes out to tour the island.
We arrived for a 7 day stay for me to photograph the area. We had snow, sleet, hail, rain, gusting gale force winds and sunshine.......all in one day! It was brilliant. I had skyscapes and seascapes to die for. The island has to be seen from tip to toe to see all the various land forms. A MUST DO. Drive the 'Golden Road' from North to South in the morning and then return via the West coast road in the afternoon. Its a photographers paradise. You will not regret it. We are glad we done it out of season as some of the single track roads will prove difficult in the tourist season when someone will take their camper van was out into the wilds but there are enough passing places.
Eating out is well catered for from a carvery in a local hotel to the best place, Digby Chicks in Stornaway. You have to book and to get the cheaper rate book for an early evening meal, say about 6pm.
