Perched on a rugged stone headland high above the sea, these sophisticated hideaways provide the perfect retreat for couples seeking intimate seclusion.Rising from the stone ruins of nineteenth century Blackhouses, these beautiful turf-roof cottages were designed by Award-winning architect, Stuart Bagshaw (designer of a Channel Four Grand Designs 'Home of the Year' on the neighbouring Isle of Harris). A commission to create contemporary dwellings in a spectacular, natural setting has created cottages that perfectly blend with their dramatic surroundings.With exceptional 180 degree views from their cliff side locations, the hills of the Isle of Harris provide the ultimate backdrop to an ever-changing seascape.Ideally located for wildlife watching, these discreetly placed cottages deliver ex...Perched on a rugged stone headland high above the sea, these sophisticated hideaways provide the perfect retreat for couples seeking intimate seclusion.Rising from the stone ruins of nineteenth century Blackhouses, these beautiful turf-roof cottages were designed by Award-winning architect, Stuart Bagshaw (designer of a Channel Four Grand Designs 'Home of the Year' on the neighbouring Isle of Harris). A commission to create contemporary dwellings in a spectacular, natural setting has created cottages that perfectly blend with their dramatic surroundings.With exceptional 180 degree views from their cliff side locations, the hills of the Isle of Harris provide the ultimate backdrop to an ever-changing seascape.Ideally located for wildlife watching, these discreetly placed cottages deliver exclusivity and a relaxed, low-key ambience. Guests can expect a stay of exceptional serenity and a chance to unwind in an unspoilt, natural environment.Architectural originality and imagination are reflected in the strikingly contemporary glass, stone and timber design of the cottages. Barrel-vaulted, high ceilings and exposed, curved beams lend themselves to an airy atmosphere while a muted colour palette, use of natural oak furnishings and beautiful Belgian linen upholstery and fabrics create restful, elegant interiors. Discreetly added amenities, under floor heating throughout and a subtle lighting plan designed by the award-winning team at John Cullen Lighting add to the understated luxury of the cottages.An open-plan living area provides: an observation lounge with log-burning stove; a kitchen area, thoughtfully equipped by a keen, amateur cook; a dining area with views across Loch Erisort and access via French doors to a stylishly furnished, private terrace carved into the rock.Each cottage offers a luxuriously proportioned bedroom with blissfully comfortable Super king size bed. Crisp white Egyptian cotton linen, Canadian Goose Down duvets and a pillow menu, will help ensure a supremely restful night's sleep, aided by the fresh sea air. The ensuite bathroom is furnished with a deep soak double-end bath, walk-in rain shower, double basins and bespoke polar pine sauna.You may be reluctant to leave your cottage with its interesting and eclectic library of books and films, as well as binoculars, telescope and wildlife identifier books. But should you need to keep in touch with the outside world, a Wi-Fi connection is at your disposal.For outdoor enthusiasts, bicycles and fishing rods are provided along with beach towels, Thermos flasks, picnic hampers and Ordnance Survey maps.More

About the neighbourhood
Looking south west from the cottages, the Eishken hills form a rugged skyline. Here, the 43,000 red deer forest is one of the UK's last wilderness areas and home to 13 pairs of golden eagles. In a westerly direction, the hills of Harris come into view which include the highest ground in the Outer Hebrides, the Clisham at 799 metres. A favourite with walkers, a return trip to the summit takes around 3 hours. Expect to see mountain hares and golden eagles. North west takes you into the Soval Estate with its myriad of freshwater lochs and the Laxay river system which has a run of salmon and sea trout making their way back from the sea through Loch Erisort into the river from June to September. Wild brown trout fishing is available on the estate for a modest charge, with fly, spinner or wo...
