The Wee Wooden Yurt at Caolas Gallery is a unique amazing space, a green roofed, original wooden round house with picture windows giving an uninterrupted view of the sea across to the Isle of Scalpay and South East Harris. Features include a central dome roof window, separate shower room, a kitchen, comfortable chairs and wood burning stove, and of course a double bed. The property enjoys a southerly aspect with masses of natural light. Is well insulated, warm and cosy
“If you want to waken up to an amazing view and wind down in the evenings to a beautiful sun set, this is your place. The yurt is a high standard of ‘glamping’ (I’ve stayed in far worse hotels) with a comfortable bed, great shower, a range of cooking utilities. It’s surprisingly spacious. It’s clean, dry and super cozy when you get the fire on. A hidden little gem that I’d most definitely return to. It was an ideal island getaway.”
Alasdair's home, Aird Druim an Tolla, is located on the east coast of Harris in a secluded location. It is an ideal place to 'escape' from the pressures of modern urban living.
“Forget the amazing home with incredible views in a stunning remote location! It was Alasdair that truly made our one night stay a memorable one - my favorite Airbnb experience to date. To start with, Alasdair accommodated our request for early checkin. After settling into our room Alasdair took us on a short hike around his property, showed us how he dyes wool using lichengathered from his property, and pretty much entertained us all afternoon. We even shared a home cooked meal together- I cooked up the main meal and Alasdair whipped up dessert for us. The next morning, Alasdair treated us to his home made croissants for breakfast along with eggs, cereal, juice, tea, coffee etc. It was amazing! Alasdair is an exceptional host all around and I would highly recommend a stay with him!”
Braemore Chalet, recently renovated to include a wood burning stove in 2019, is a cosy Chalet situated 10mins east of Tarbert on the Isle of Harris and provides a perfect base to explore our beautiful island. Braemore Chalet is ideal for couples but the additional sofa bed in the living area means its roomy enough for a family or a group of sharers. Stay at Braemore Chalet and start your Hebridean adventure.
“We had a lovely stay at Braemore Chalet and really appreciated the gorgeous view and how cosy the place was. Everything was clean and well planned and so it made being there really easy. Handy for the ferry too as it’s only about a ten minute drive to Tarbert. Unfortunately, my husband was taken ill with a migraine which meant we needed to check out a wee bit later - Hazel was so kind and caring and said we could stay until our ferry time. We’d definitely stay here again if we come back to Harris.”
