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 - December 2023

We had a fabulous stay. Rob and Carol were very flexible when we had to change all our plans at short notice with the ferries cancelled due to a storm. The house is in such a peaceful location with stunning views, sitting watching the sunset over the islands was magical. It is beautifully furnished and well very well equipped. There is lots of really useful advice and information about the island with photo's, personal recommendations and walking maps. We very much hope to visit again

Latest Review - July 2023

Having stayed at 'The Other House' some years ago (before Covid), we knew that Carol and Rob's new venture at the Loft would be excellent. Like that House, it is beautifully and thoughtfully designed as well as being modern and practical. The kitchen is a dream to cook in. The shower is easy to use. The bed is very comfortable. We had great views across the nearby lochan to the Sound of Harris. And it was fun to look out at the back towards the mountain behind and also see sheep and geese wandering beyond the patio. We definitely were not disappointed.
