We stayed in Taigh Sheumais, overlooking Scarista beach, and it was truly impressive, inside and out. The way the turf roof and stone walls blend into the landscape never gets old - every time we came back to the house I found myself taking another photo. In late June the machair flowers and orchids right around the house were just... More

We booked this trip some 18 months in advance; we were looking forward to being on the Isle of Harris and staying in one of the cottages (Taigh Sheumais), yet the whole trip/stay was so much better than we anticipated. The cottage is amazing, bigger than we thought and the high specification and the little touches made it a really... More

Our first trip last year was so good, we had to come back again. The cottage was as lovely as we remembered and still looks like new, the owners taking great care to keep a true 5* rating. Lots of great eating places were open in the season and we enjoyed night in and eating out. This is a fantastic... More

Despite our trip being sadly cut short due to two storms.... We loved the cottage and can't wait to return. Rhoda was so friendly and helpful, and the cottage is a perfect romantic hideaway. The views are amazing, and the welcome hamper was a lovely touch. We will be back!

what do you want when you visit Harris? Stunning, white-sand beaches, usually deserted? A selection is visible, walkable and driveable from here. Wild coastal scenery? Choose your enormous picture window and enjoy. Eagles? Travel a short distance, or wait: your choice. The freshest seafood? Local langoustines and the largest scallops I have ever eaten - hand-dived, of course - delivered... More

This is luxury relaxation. You don't need to leave the cottage but the beautiful views and great wildlife is too good to miss. We had lazy lay ins, long walks (often in the rain) then warmed up back at the cottage with a sauna then jacuzzi bath. The luxury Molton Brown products, fluffy towels and thick robes add to the...

We arrived at Blue Reef at night time so didn't know what the view was like until we opened the curtains in the morning...wow! We had extremely high expectations and these were not only met, but were also exceeded. This is a perfect cottage in the perfect location. The kitchen has absolutely everything you would ever need or want -... More

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.
