Grandfathers House, 5 min. walk from the Beach

Self Catering

13 Northton, Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides, Scarista, Isle of Harris, Western Isles, HS3 3JA

    Grandfathers house is a four star cosy selfcatering cottage specially designed for couples wishing for a quiet romantic break.


    Wild, wonderfully remote on a beautiful rocky coast with many white sand beaches, The Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides – these cottages revel in creativity. You'll love it if you crave adventure, for this far-flung crofting village on Harris's rocky south coast, transforms in spring sunshine into a stunning sweep of wildflowers and birds. Wild walks and the unspoiled beautiful nature are the main attraction; for nightlife, look not for neon lights but stars.


    Ganet and Fulmar are sky blue 5-star family bungalows built to withstand the elements: in winter, cuddle by the stove as you gaze out at storm-lashed seas, or bubble in a Jacuzzi tub in luxurious bathrooms with steam showers, small saunas, and tartan towels. These luxurious self-catering cottages offer spectacular views over the white sands of Scarista beach and the ocean beyond and cater for couples or families up to 5 persons. Each cottage has two luxury bedrooms with ensuites. The master bedroom offers a high quality bed with memory foam king mattress, jacuzzi, steam shower and small sauna; the other bedroom has 3 single beds (2 can be put together to accommodate as a king size), a steam shower, toilet and washbasin. Gannet and Fulmar have their own ¼ acre plot and private parking.


    Grandfather's House is truly special: a chunky stone cottage with deep jewel-like windows enjoying limited beach views. Inside are fun furnishings, a wood-burning stove and open-plan bedroom and bathroom. A former blackhouse, this lovely cottage oozes romance and caters for one couple - a popular choice for an idyllic honeymoon week. For those special occasions, champagne, wine, chocolates, flowers can be arranged and put in place with a note prior to arrival.
