From the owner

Harsgeir View - WiFi ( super fast broadband) - Go Green - is now a more environmentally friendly cottage as we now have just installed a new 5 Kw "Ecodan" Air Source Heat Pump which provides hot water and central heating which helps us reduce our Carbon Footprint. This pump helps us to save the equivalent of some 17000 car miles of CO2 emissions each year. We encourage and help all our guests to recycle all their waste and source only locally produced goods in our welcome packs

Harsgier View is a modernized stand alone cottage in the Village of Hacklete on Great Bernera. It sleeps four people it has one double room with very large 4 poster bed - one twin room and is in an ideal "get away from it all" location for a relaxing holiday.

Also next spring we are installing 11 ground based solar panels to generate 4.1 Kw of totally green electric for you to use. The cottage is fully serviced each week.

This year in May we upgraded Kitchen to Shaker Style Ivory Units. It now has an Induction Hob and all white goods are A+++ energy efficient. BT Phone line and WiFi access. Wooden flooring throughout and yes we accept well behaved pets.

The cottage is on one of the highest areas of Bernera which gives it a wide panoramic view of an area which is known for it's outstanding natural beauty. It is close to beaches and coastal and inland walks many of which have been sign posted out by the community. The views pan out from Achmore, Uig and old Hill in Bosta. Harsgeir View is so named because of its view from the kitchen window to the tiny island of Harsgeir in the mouth of West Loch Roag which surrounds Bernera and Uig.

Leave the cottage, walk over the bridge at Valasay, up the side of the Toab Loch and over to the fantastic beach at Bosta were the reconstructed Iron Age house sits on the original archaeological site which was discovered in the 1990's. The finds of this dig can been seen at the community run museum which serves tea and coffee during the summer. Bird watchers and wildlife lovers are regular visitors to the cottage, Seals, Buzzards and even Otters are known to inhabit the immediate location. Use our tripod and zoom binocular to sport the most distant of birds.

You are welcome to use the fishing rods in the cottage if you fancy a spot of rock fishing also a Tripod and Supper Zoom Scope for bird watching.The cottage is well stocked with books and games if you fancy a stay in day.

We have been letting this cottage for some 14 years now all our feedback so far has been positive. Contact us and we will post you out our very useful and comprehensive tourist/visitor pack of maps and information leaflets so that you can start planning your holiday even before you arrive. Once you book via holiday lettings they will pass you our phone number if you want to contact us direct.
