The Broch & Rock House

Self Catering

Borve Lodge Estate, Borve, Isle Of Harris, Isle Of Harris, HS3 3HT

    The Broch & The Rock House are Borve Lodge Estate's premier self-catering properties. These award winning designs offer luxurious accomodation for couples seeking the perfect retreat overlooking the Harris Beaches and the Atlantic beyond.

    Accommodation at Borve Lodge Estate is as unique as the environment, to maximise the experience of travelling to the remote Scottish island of Harris.

    Our two lead dwellings, The Rock House and The Broch, have been built in the most environmentally sympathetic way possible to the stark Harris landscape. Where possible, we used materials directly from the Estate.

    The result is that both buildings are married into the landscape, and many passing travellers comment that they do not see the buildings at first glance, as both look part of the hillside.

    But within each house, amenities are very 21st Century. Under-floor heating and piping hot water comes from air-source heat pumps, ensuring a cosy interior for those inevitable rainy Harris days and nights. Satellite TV and wireless internet provide connectivity during your chill-out time on Harris. And we get no complaints of anyone tiring of the view.

    From 2016 we will have just 2 pricing brackets which are

    £1200 per week low season (Oct -March)

    £2100 per week high season (April - Sept)


    We also have Christmas and New Year 2015 available in both cottages at the moment, and I would be very grateful if you could list this on your website. 

    Our bookings are weekly over this period and will be 21st to 28th December and 28th Dec to 4th Jan 2016. 

    Broch @ £1895 per week

    Rock @ £1695 per week
