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.

Latest Review - October 2022

I was one of the last people to stay in The Big House - which I was happy about because I've been eyeing it up for years. The view was gorgeous and the property a delight - from the decor, to the dolphins in the bay over breakfast. Carol and Rob were very helpful, and gave me some great advice on the local area. I've stayed in several places on Harris and this was the best for the quiet and wonderful views.

We have just enjoyed 4 lovely and memorable days at the Other House. Even though at times the weather wasn’t great it didn’t matter; it’s just a really nice place to stay and relax. The fittings and furnishings are a delight, whilst Rob and Carol are generous and helpful hosts. They’re available if you need them, but equally you feel it’s your place for a short while. We’d thoroughly recommend it and hope to return one day.
