Description from owner


Glen Carragrich is a crofter's cottage that has been in the family for many years and is the only cottage on the croft. 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. At the rear of the house is a picnic table. Grab a coffee, or cold drink and sit (hopefully) in the sun, admire the views or do some birdwatching. Why not see if you can spot a golden eagle or sea eagle soaring over seals in the bay?

The cottage is fully furnished and well equipped.

Though accommodating more, the let is restricted to a maximum of 4.
