About

We recommend that you read the trilogy by Finlay J Macdonald, detailing growing up in Harris. He was born in Scarista on the croft next to the two cottages and it is a wonderful experience to read these books whilst immersed in the island life. Although time changes much, it has had little impact on the natural landscape and the wonderful beaches. The sea is still turquoise and beach sparkling white! The famous 'machair' continues to bloom in spring as it always has and the traditional crofting communities still exist
.
However, step inside Corncrake or Otter and you are transported to the ultimate luxury of 21st century self catering! The cottages sit at the foot of the Harris golf course and Scarista beach is just metres away. Each cottage has three en suite bedrooms with showers and one has a bath in addition. The kitchen is well equipped and superbly appointed and the huge sitting room with its cathedral ceiling and glass wall is ideal for relaxing and socialising. The cottages, whilst being close enough for 2 families to holiday together, are cleverly angled away from each other to offer more privacy individually.
