Borve Lodge Estate lies on the magnificent Atlantic coastline of the Outer Hebridean Isle of Harris and Claddach House is one of the Estate’s traditional cottages.
Sleeping between 2-6 people, Claddach House is a traditional stone-built croft house nestled in the Borve valley.
The house is suited to couples and families alike and has a light and airy feel. The solid feeling of the Hebridean croft house has been retained but has modern fixtures and amenities throughout, including a separate utility room. There is plenty of space to relax, with the ground floor providing a large dining room, a fully equipped open plan kitchen with wood burning stove and a sitting room for enjoying an evening fire. There are three generous bedrooms with that on the ground floor benefitting from an en-suite bathroom with a separate bath and walk in shower. A further double room and a twin room can be found on the first floor, along with a family bathroom.
There is ample parking at the cottage for more than one vehicle if required.
Claddach House is ideally situated for exploring the island and beaches. Just a five-minute walk away you will find the Estate’s secluded Borve Beach, with views of the Atlantic Ocean and towards the ‘Castaway’ Isle of Taransay.
For our more active guests, there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities on and around the Estate. Our accommodation is in the Borve Valley, which is one of the few areas of mature woodland in West Harris and is a perfect location for walking and picnics. Beyond the environs of the estate, the walking options are endless.
Fly fishing for salmon, sea trout and brown trout on the Laxdale River system, a stunning location in West Harris that extends into the Luskentyre estuary and on our Lochs and Lochans is also available.
Other activities available locally include photography, bird and wildlife watching and depending on the season, mountain biking, kayaking and surfing.
Prices from £995 per week (low season). Short breaks available throughout low season.
