Overlooking Taransay, mountains in the north of the island and an archipelago of islands in the Sound of Harris this is the ultimate place to enjoy a romantic and luxurious break.
These isolated and secluded cottages are totally private yet only 10 minutes walk from an award winning restaurant and 10-20 minutes drive from shops and bars.
Built to accommodate two people, these cottages offer relaxation in a breathtakingly beautiful part of the Outer Hebrides.
The eco cottages are unique in their design as they are turf roofed and aesthetically blend into the hillside. The idea is based on Neolithic housing, which was situated underground. This idea along with a touch of traditional Hebridean building techniques has resulted in a unique design with exclusive features.
The area surrounding the cottages is 'machair land' which is sandy soil with a carpet of wild flowers during the spring and summer months

Culturally, the Hebrides have a strong music and Gaelic tradition. The Gaelic language is still widely spoken and can be heard throughout the island.
Fishing, Aquaculture and the Harris Tweed are the main industries. A number of fishing villages are dotted around the coast, mainly on the east side. Traditional weavers still produce the famous Harris Tweed in colours, which are influenced by the beautiful landscape on Harris.
