The inspiration for this truly unique building came from dwellings that were scattered across the Scottish coastline during the iron age. This is probably the first broch built in the UK since the Roman era, and the vision was to make it appear as if 21st century comforts had been transplanted within an ancient ruin.

Standing three stories high, the Broch’s main aspect commands views over the wooded Borve Valley direct towards the distant ruin of an iron age citadel, in keeping with the ancient tradition of having a network of keeps within line of sight. The Broch pushed the boundaries of dry-stone wall methods. Drawing inspiration from the Broch at Carloway on Lewis, stones were placed in random configuration, with the base stones being nearly 2ms wide, before tapering upwards. Massive lintel stones sit above each window, and slate ramps ensure rain runs down and off windowsills. The roof is crowned with turf, and the Broch is entered across a slate draw-bridge.

A beautiful and extremely well appointed house in a stunning location. A fantastic place to enjoy the splendour and solitude of Harris from a very comfortable vantage point.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Rock House. The design and layout are absolutely stunning. The only issue we have is that, in common with all high quality accommodation on Harris, the cost is a bit on the high side.
