Unique rock house overlooking one of Scotland's most beautiful beaches with huge windows allowing us to watch the ever-changing light & colours. The house was superbly and tastefully equipped with everything we could possibly want or need, warm and comfortable after long days out and the bonus of a sauna & jacuzzi were greatly appreciated on wet days.

We stayed in Taigh Iain which is one of two cottages that look from the outside to be some form of ancient monument, on the inside however they're modern, comfortable and very well equipped a perfect place to rest and watch the weather in the bay change by the hour. Spectacular views of the bay (almost Mediterranean in it's look).... More

It's what all the other people said. Fully equipped wonderful views. It's booked for 7 days the sheets don't changed neither the towels. The whole cottage wasn't that clean. But it has all that you need. I think it's very expensive for what it is.

We have thought about visiting this place for years but never had the time to make the journey. That all changed when we both retired and off we went to the Outer Hebrides for the first time and were blown away with Harris in particular and then we arrived at the Blue Reef Cottages to be met by Rhoda who...

Even though it was February (with gale force winds) when we stayed we had a fantastic week at Blue Reef. The cottages are truly 5* from the quality of the accommodation to the attention to detail to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. The views are breathtaking and the days fly-by just sitting and looking at the views. We... More

From the warm welcome to Bollinger in the spa bath this house with the spectacular views from every window is a couples dream come true. We truly enjoyed the wild Scottish weather from behind glass and in front of the peat fire. We saw porpoise in the bay beside the cottage and an eagle overhead near Tarbet. Excellent local food...

We had a 10 day Scottish adventure in September with 7 days on the Isle of Harris staying at the luxury 5 star Blue Reef cottage. First class accommodation! Although on first sight, expensive. However after making the journey to get there, the self catering cottage was the perfect place to just sit and relax watching the sky, sea and... More

Like all the other reviews here, we cannot say enough positive things about this place. It is simply beautiful and the perfect place for a honeymoon if you want wilderness, wild beauty but a touch of luxury too. Everything about the cottage and it's facilities is first class. Cosy, chic and with unforgettable views-we could not have asked for a... More

We spent a week here on our honeymoon in July and it was absolutely perfect! The cottage is luxurious and cosy with the most amazing views from the large front window. It is tempting to just sit in and watch the spectacular scenery and ever changing lights, alongside the most wonderful sunsets. The welcome pack with champagne is a lovely... More

The best self catering cottage we have ever stayed in and worth every penny! Our 4th visit to Harris- we had previously spotted the Blue Reef cottages and have been determined to try to get a booking (it's fully booked year round!) It was everything we hoped it would be and more. Beautifully warm and cosy yet spacious, tastefully decorated... More
