Cabhalan Cottage


Stone-built crofthouse beside the sea sleeping four. Remote, private and secluded. Originally a 'blackhouse' built around 1780, now completely modernised with full infra-red central heating and open peat fires.

The cottage has electric infra-red heating throughout, and also an open peat fire and an optional peat-cooking range in the kitchen (we provide you with peat). Hot-water is via an electric 'on-demand' boiler; all inclusive in the rental.

The cottage has satellite broadband Internet connection, a telephone and stereo CD player/radio. All electricity and local telephone calls are included in the weekly rental. There are a range of books and games so that in inclement weather you can enjoy watching the wild seas from the warm comfort of the kitchen recessed window seats. We now provide all bedding and linen but not towels.

Cabhalan Cottage is suitable for those with mobility difficulties.


Cabhalan Cottage Harris is an ideal location for those seeking an 'away-from-it-all' holiday. A cosy modernised crofthouse dating from around 1780 in a secluded, peaceful spot 100 metres from the seashore and enjoying uninterrupted views across the sea to Skye, the Cuillins and the west coast of Scotland (as well as views of many otters on the shore below!).

The nearest house is half a mile away in each direction and there is a small sheltered bay with anchorage behind the cottage.

Ideal for fishing, boating (details available on request), walking and beachcombing; there are sea-birds, otters, seals and basking sharks to be seen. Nearby are empty beaches, mountains and a golf-course.

Of interest is the Iron Age history of the isles including the Callanish stone circles and the Ley Lines. There are many local artists and traditional craft skills not to mention the long and fascinating Celtic and pre-Celtic culture and Gaelic language.
