Location description from owner

The Hebrides region

The Hebrides are known for their wildlife, great variety of birds plants/orchids, otters, seals, dolphins, porpoises and even whales. We had an otter in our garden twice, we were very excited!Last summer with many others we rescued a baby Minky Whale from Leverburgh Harbour, finally the calf swam into the Minch and found her mother.

Local seafood is fantastic, restaurants plenty, galleries to visit, at Lewis the Callanish Standing stones, older than Stone Henge, further a Black House Village, the museum to see the Viking chess men. Main attraction is the scenery unspoilt, wild, untamed, walks and clear skies full of glittering stars or if lucky see the Northern lights. Harris, you won't be disappointed and wish to come back like we did.....

Isle of Harris

The cottages cluster opposite a seafood joint; Julie and Steve are happy to deliver their home made fresh seafood meals piping hot to the cottage. Gail and Ruben from the Temple Cafe at Northton serve lovely coffee and teas and are known for their excellent home baking. All great after a good walk to the Temple, up the hills, or a day out swimming or playing at one of the four Norhton beaches or spectacular Scarista beach and estuary opposite the cottages. It is a 5 min walk to Northton beach 1, walk further towards beach 2,3,4, and 5 and the Temple ruin or walk from the cottage over the vast expanse of Scarista beach to ocean's edge.

Jan and Suzan of Beachview Cottages are exceptionally warm, fun hosts who go out of their way for you or leave you in peace to enjoy fishing, biking, seal-watching, kayaking, walking or climbing. They can advise you on the best places to go fishing, the nicest walks, family or award winning restaurants to eat out, where to source local produce such as scallops, lobster, crab. Or if you wish for private painting tuition, Suzan as an international artist and a very enthusiastic teacher.

Don't be surprised to watch a Golden eagles soaring over the cottage, meet an otter at the first or third beach as they live there. As we have planted many fruit bushes and trees to create a safe wildlife habitat; also the otters feel at home, we have seen them in our garden over winter twice! Seals are seen very often and with kayaks you can come very close to them. Welcome for a relaxing, romantic and active holiday to the truly unspoilt Isle of Harris!

“Dit moet je minimaal één keer in je leven hebben gezien!!!!!!!”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2016

We werden hartelijk ontvangen door Suzan en JanPieter Visser. Na enige uitleg kregen wij ons huis toegewezen. De huisjes liggen op een heuvel en hebben allemaal prachtig uitzicht over de baai. Ons huisje is gezellig ingericht en zijn allemaal prachtig geschilderd door de eigenaresse zelf. Niet gewoon geschilderd maar diverse wanden zijn voorzien van muurschilderen van vogels en beesten die daar voorkomen, prachtig. Huisje is van alle gemakken voorzien en wij hebben er ons heerlijk vermaakt. Veel gewandeld en alle weervariaties over ons heen gekregen maar dat hoort bij Schotland. De natuur is prachtig maar ook verstild, je moet dat een keer gezien hebben om daar de juiste woorden voor te vinden. Een boeiend eiland en een zeer goed verblijf.

Hartelijk dank voor de mooie review en fijn dat jullie zowel Fulmar Cottage, als the Isle of Harris prachtig hebben gevonden.
