Sound of Harris is situated in the township of Borrisdale at the southernmost tip of Harris, overlooking the Sound, which separates the Minches from the open Atlantic. The location provides a stunning panorama - from Skye, across the mountainous spine of the Uists, the myriad islets of the Sound, to Killegray, Ensay and Pabbay beyond. Expect to see the resident otters in the kelp at low tide, plus porpoise, grey seals, common dolphin, gannets and the local breeding pair of golden eagles on occasion. The accommodation comprises two separate adjoined lodges. The Big House, at 120 m2, is based around a spacious loft-style living, kitchen and dining area - with full glazing to the south and west elevations to make the most of the views. The Other House (65 m2) maintains a cozy feel, with views south across Langay, Gilsay and Groay from the vaulted living space. Both units feature interiors based around bespoke Tweeds by Donald John Mackay, which complement vintage mid-century furnishings. Facilities include Japanese style soaking tubs and rain showers in the en-suite bathrooms, well appointed kitchens, smart TVs, DVD players, quality hi-fis, fast fibre broadband and extensive libraries of books and DVDs.

Sound of Harris is a delightful place to stay. It’s the second time we’ve been and it was just as lovely. The house was immaculately clean and well looked after. The standard of furniture, fixtures and fittings is very high, including in the kitchen. Rob and Carol were very friendly and helpful and immediately sorted out a couple of small issues - we were the first visitors since the winter, The views are to die for- looking across the Sound of Harris towards The Uists. It’s a little piece of heaven.

Leverburgh Loft is one of those places where you feel immediately at home. The apartment is so well designed with high quality furnishings and equipment . We appreciated everything from the beautiful Harris tweed cushions and throws to the carefully curated art work. The kitchen bathroom are sleek and modern and everything is in pristine condition. The location was perfect for us as we were attending a wedding reception at the Isle of Harris Brewery and could easily walk back. The food is excellent there too which is an added bonus. Rob and Carol were super responsive and welcoming. We ho...more
