The Experience

Gaze at stunning views over the sea loch and beautiful, remote landscapes from your roomy architect-designed cottage; set up the binoculars and watch out for otters, seals and eagles from any window – or on the small patio, perfect for your morning coffee or sundowner. You’ll find some books to help you identify wildlife too.

A generous hamper has all you need for breakfast on your first morning. Borrow maps, bikes and thermos flasks and set off along quiet lanes for wonderful walks and ease your aching limbs in the sauna afterwards.

Watch a film – there are many here to choose from – sink into the deep bath with a book from the eclectic library or simply look out at stormy or starry skies. You’ll be kept cosy by the underfloor heating and roaring wood-burner.

My husband and I had a fabulous stay in an Eagle Bay cottage. Great location for getting around both Lewis and Harris, not too far away from Stornoway if you want access to shops but nice and quiet if you want solitude. We arrived late in the evening to the cottage all lit up, classical music playing and a lovely selection of cakes, fruit basket and lots of other goodies, including some rather tasty smoked salmon! The cottage is finished to such a high spec, it has everything you need. From bikes to a lovely sauna and free standing bath and lovely REN toiletries. We will be back!

I would love to spend more time here - it's the perfect base for exploring the wilds of the Scottish Isles or simply relaxing and enjoying nature's show from the window. I can imagine perfect days spent cycling, reading books, wild swimming and then warming back up in the sauna. The kitchen is great too for testing your skills and cooking up feasts.

The neighbourhood

Find the two cottages just off a quiet road on the east side of the island - the coastline is rockier but Harris isn’t far for long, sandy beaches. Stornoway (12 miles) is the closest town for numerous eateries and you can stock up on fresh fish from Islander Shellfish on the pier. Or take a boat trip on the loch with Lewis Mackenzie - spot wildlife and bring home freshly-caught fish.

Local points of interest from Kathleen Maciver

  • With an abundance of resident and migratory wildlife on your doorstep, expect to see everything from White-Tailed Sea Eagles to Arctic Terns and from Otters to Orcas and Basking Sharks.
  • The Outer Hebrides has its own unique culture and traditions, from peat-cutting to weaving Harris Tweed. The Gaelic language is widely spoken throughout the islands and contemporary Gaelic music features strongly in the summer Hebridean Celtic Festival.
  • Small art galleries and craft workshops are dotted around the Islands, tearooms have sprung up in the most unlikely and remote settings and enticing restaurants serve local game, heather-grazed lamb and the freshest fish and shellfish.
  • A private boat charter for two with “Hebrides Fish ‘n’ Trips”, departing from the pier a few minutes’ walk from your cottage will allow you to visit the spectacular Shiant Islands or explore the many sea lochs and lagoons of the east coast of the Island.
  • Drive through the diverse landscapes of Lewis and Harris and visit some of the most beautiful and remote beaches: Luskentyre beach on Harris or deserted Uig beach on Lewis which found fame as the location for the discovery of the Lewis Chessmen.
  • Take in some important historical sites such as the Iron Age House in Bosta; the Neolithic Standing Stones at Callanish; the Beehive Dwellings near the Lewis- Harris border or visit one of the best preserved Broch towers in Scotland at Doune, Carloway.

Kathleen and David live in the main house and will greet you. The croft has been in Kathleen's family since the 1700s and her grandmother was born there; they built the cottages five years ago and have loved sharing this incredible spot ever since.
