Luxury self-catering in the Bays of Harris

Discover Bays Blackhouse luxury self-catering located on our croft in the rugged scenery of the Isle of Harris.

A perfect little hideaway in a secluded location close by Loch Stocinis with fabulous southerly views over the Little Minch to the Isle of Skye.

Bays Blackhouse is a unique one bedroom holiday cottage located in the heart of the Bays of Harris. It is ideally suited to enjoy the well-known Coffin Road and the Scholars' Path both of which start in Leac a Li. The fabulous beaches of Luskentyre, Seilebost and Horgabost are within a short drive of the property and being close to the Loch Stocinis shoreline affords ample opportunity to enjoy water activities plus the possibility of seeing otters, seals, eagles and other wildlife regularly sighted in the area.

Recently developed by us to incorporate an historic blackhouse ruin the property offers modern luxury self-catering facilities whilst keeping the spirit of a traditional Hebridean croft house. The property features underfloor heating throughout along with a traditional solid fuel stove to make a cosy stay at any time of year.

Paul and Annalie look forward to welcoming you to Harris and Bays Blackhouse!
