Albany Cottage is a real home from home. Very well equipped and very spacious. All rooms are large with lots of storage space. Great views out of the window. This was a very luxurious cottage - we were sorry to leave!

About the neighbourhood
The Isle of Harris, nestling in the middle of the Outer Hebrides archipelago, is home to a fantastic mix of scenery and wildlife. With almost deserted white shell-sand beaches on the west side, to rocky coves on the east, and spectacular hill walking to the north, there is a wealth of beauty in this quite location. Peaceful and calm, and sparsely populated, Harris is nevertheless home to a number of artists and craftspeople - Harris Tweed weavers, landscape painters, ceramicists and fine art photographers. There is a lively music scene with ceilidhs and Gaelic song, and a series of arts events through the year. But you make just like to come and chill out, to enjoy the wild and wonderful views and find a moment of peaceful calm. The Isle of Harris is the antidote to city living!
