A warm welcome is assured at our cosy croft cottage set on the shores of Loch Seaforth in the heart of the North Harris hills. Central position for touring the island but also excellent for walking in the hills and spotting Golden and Sea Eagles.
A warm welcome is assured at our cosy croft cottage situated on the edge of Loch Seaforth at Ardvourlie, North Harris. We have one double/twin room with private bathroom with roll-top bath and shower. Breakfast is taken in the conservatory overlooking the loch where visitors can also relax and enjoy the view or the books during the evening. Especially suitable as a stop-off for cyclists crossing the island or walkers traversing the Hebridean Way. A hot-pot dinner using our own mutton can be provided for walkers or cyclists by prior arrangement or you can bring your own food and eat it in the conservatory. We are a working croft with hill sheep, three Highland cows, working collie dogs, hens and Spencer the Siamese cat (please be aware if you have an allergy to cats!). Visitors are welcome to try their hand at sheep shearing during July/August (weather permitting) or sheep gatherings, watching the dogs work and walking the hills with the shepherds. This area is also the most favoured area for spotting Golden and Sea Eagles and each Wednesday morning during the summer the North Harris Trust ranger/RSPB conduct "eagle walks" along the Vigadale Glen just near the house.
