Western Isles
Bed & Breakfast

Stunning sea views, hearty Scottish fare and you'll sleep well in this friendly couple's simple beach-side home – a Western Isles gem


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 1 – 2


Richard and Lena’s lovely home overlooks the beach at Borve – another absurdly beautiful Harris view. Inside, smart simplicity abounds: wooden floors, white walls, a peat fire, colourful art. Airy bedrooms fit the mood perfectly: trim carpets, chunky wood beds, Harris tweed throws, excellent shower rooms (there’s a bathroom, too, if you want a soak). Richard crofts, Lena cooks, perhaps homemade soup, venison casserole, wet chocolate cake with raspberries. Views from the dining room tumble down hill, so expect to linger over breakfast. You’ll spot otters in the loch, while the standing stones at Callanish are unmissable.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Lena & Richard MacLennan

  • Golden sandy beach within a 2 minute walk of the house.
  • Enjoy another golden beach and headland walk up to Macleod's Standing Stone. Just a 10 minute walk along the road.
  • Watch out for golden eagles soaring above the hill at the back of the house.
  • If it's raining there are plenty galleries to enjoy or why not visit Seallam exhibition and genealogy research centre at Northton.
  • Watch a weaving demonstration at the Harris Tweed visitor centre in Drinishader. Purchase Harris Tweed by the length or Harris Tweed gifts at the Harris Tweed shop in Tarbert. Buy Harris Tweed clothing and accessories at The Harris Tweed Company Grosebay.
  • Visit St Clements Church at Rodel. This 16th century church was founded by Alasdair Crotach Macleod, 8th Chief of Macleod.
