Dina Stewart Discover a home from home where you can relax and enjoy the sheer beauty and tranquility of the beautiful award-winning islands that are the Hebrides. We offer two different holiday homes, Glen Carragrich and West Tarbert, which are both set in the idyllic landscape of the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. They offer fantastic views and comfortable accommodation at affordable prices.

Harris has so much to offer, whether you enjoy walking, fishing, golf or just lying on a sandy beach. The scenery is magnificent and varied, ranging from rugged rocky hills to gentle orchid strewn meadows. From mountainous sand dunes and unsurpassed beaches bordering blue-green seas to Atlantic breakers on rocky coastlines. Self catering in traditional cottages on the Hebridean Island of Harris voted among the top 5 Islands according to Tripadvisor.

The largest of these is Loch an Duin (loch of the fort) which has a tiny island in it, with the remains of the fort still visible. Eilean Glas, a tiny peninsula on Scalpay's eastern shore is home to the first lighthouse to be built in the Outer Hebrides. The Isle of Taransay lies just off the west coast of South Harris, and was used to film the BBC programme, Castaway 2000. It can be best viewed from the roadside parking place between Horgabost and Borve.

read more › Birds on HarrisThe islands boast a wide range of wildlife and plantlife, probably the best way to view these are on guided walks, or sea safari's. There are Red Deer and birdlife is abundant, in the spring and summer months a strange grating sound will alert you to the presence of Corncrakes, but you will be lucky to spot one! Harris is home to; Cormorants, Shags, Oyster Catchers, Herring Gulls, Black Back Gulls, Gannets, Curlew and Dunlin. Inland you are quite likley to see Eagles, Buzzards and Sparrow Hawks.

If you decide to drive, either coming via Skye, or Ullapool, you will be rewarded with some of the most spectacular scenery in the UK. Landscapes and seascapes of unbelievable beauty are just around a corner. Whichever ferry you take, don't forget to look out for Dolphins and Whales, or around August watch for the fins of the Basking Sharks, these giants of the shark family only eat plankton, so it is safe to go into the water!

read more › Glen Carragrich is a crofters cottage that has been in the family for many years. Situated just a few miles outside Tarbert the main village on the Isle of Harris, Glen Carragrich is set in a large garden and has stunning sea views from all main rooms. Furnished for comfort and in keeping with tradition it offers visitors a taste of the Hebridean lifestyle. Take a window seat and watch the light play on the water, see the ferry come and go, watch the numerous fishing boats and yachts pass by. Take a stroll down the quiet lane, or climb the hill at the back of the house for a truly spectacular view.

read more › West Tarbert is a comfortable and spacious detached house within walking distance of Tarbert, the main village on the Isle of Harris. The property enjoys a quiet scenic location on the Old Pier Road, just on the outskirts of the village and only a couple of minutes drive, or fifteen minutes walk from the Tarbert Ferry Terminal. It is only a ten-minute drive from spectacular beaches and is ideally situated for touring the Hebrides be your interest walking, fishing, birdwatching or just relaxing.

read more › We're travelling Scotland for about twenty years and Glen Carragrich was the best kept cottage we ever had. The house is very comfortable and offers great views over East Loch Tarbert. The free Wi-Fi puts the cherry on the cake. The owner was always very caring and so was the lady who looks after the house. When leaving by ferry from Tarbert we waved a last good-bye to the cottage hoping we'll come back one day. The cottage is an ideal starting point for walks in the hills of North Harris. From the southern shores of Scalpay one can watch sea life like seals or submarines :-.

This is such a lovely part of the world. Thank you for everything. We enjoyed our stay. Very homely and comfortable and we appreciated all the up to date appliances - Thanks Dina.
