Two Harbours Guest House


The Old Manse, Scalpay, Isle Of Harris, Outer Hebrides, HS4 3XU

    New for 2014. Welcome to the newly renovated Two Harbours Guest House - spacious coastal accommodation with wonderful views over the harbours and hills. Please check special offers tab for available discounts. Excellent TripAdvisor reviews.

    Two Harbours Guest House, formerly the Old Manse, was built in the 1880s on the site of Donald Campbell's farm. The farmstead may have existed from the late 1600's and in 1746, whilst making his escape from the Battle of Culloden, Bonnie Prince Charlie was brought to the island and stayed with Donald Campbell for 5 days. Today, after extensive refurbishment the property offers spacious, relaxing, harbour-side accommodation to guests. Both rooms are en-suite and have views over the water and to the Harris Hills, TV with DVD player, tea & coffee making facilities and complimentary Highland Spring water.  There is a dedicated twin room and a superking-double that can also be made into a twin room if needed. 

    We are approximately 7 miles from Tarbert where there are a few grocery shops, Harris Tweed Shop, cash point and bank, VisitScotland Tourist Centre and eating establishments.  Work has now started on the isle of Harris Distillery and it is due to  be open to the public early 2015.  However, there is an excellent Bistro within walking distance of Two Harbours Guest House, which we can help book for you (bring your own wine), plus a small shop and post office.

    Dont make Scalpay a one-night stopover - there is so much to see on both Scalpay, Harris and Lewis; Scalpay is a peaceful, pretty island and there are several walks that can be taken from the guest house all along scenic paths. There is a route out to the historic lighthouse at the south of the island, where you can see across The Minch to the mainland and the Isle of Skye. Otters and seals are frequently seen in various parts of the island. On Harris you need plenty of time to go south, a circular route that takes in The Golden Road, Luskentyre Beach, Rodel and Leverburgh; an incredible 16-mile drive out to West Harris, skirting the Harris Hills, through the gardens of Amhuinnsuidhe Castle and out to Hushinish Beach with views to Scarp; drive through the Harris Hills into Lewis and dont miss the west coast beaches, the iron ages villages, the Blackhouse Museum, Callanish Stones and the Carloway Broch - and lots more.  You really do need a week!

    Guests love the size of the rooms, the period features and the views.  There is a wonderful stone hearth in the dining room showcasing the size of the rocks that built the house all those years ago.  Guests can also enjoy the separate lounge with TV and DVD player, selection of DVDs, a multitude of maps and books, both fiction, non-fiction, local and geological.

    We want your stay to be as comfortable so please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements. We can offer a freshly made packed lunch for £5.95 per person, chill your ice packs and fill your flask.

    Come and enjoy a peaceful break at Two Harbours Guest House.  We are currently offering a discount for stays of 2 nights or more and from 7th September we have a 3-night stay special offer.
