Opening 6 July 2020, Two Harbours Guest House, is 7 miles east of Tarbert and offers adult-friendly, peaceful, coastal accommodation. 5-star Trip Advisor reviews and Certificate of Excellence, VisitScotland 4-star rated and a Taste Our Best certificate for breakfasts.  Recently renovated, all rooms have en-suite bathrooms with mains pressure showers, and are up one flight of stairs.

Choose from, the North Harbour Double – a large room with superking bed and pillows, with views over North Harbour and the Harris Hills plus large en-suite bathroom with large shower; or the Two Harbours Twin – this is a very large, dedicated twin room with north and south harbour views, sofa, desk and is perfect for a longer stay.  Our 3rd room is warm and cosy with a superking bed, and views over the village and garden.

Yummy made to order breakfasts, tea and cakes on arrival, plenty of parking, Wi-Fi and an excellent Bistro close by (reservations needed).  Early booking is essential. All stays are a minimum of 2 nights.  Sorry no pets or children.

Ideally located to explore the whole of Harris and Lewis.

The house sits on the site of the original farmstead where Bonnie Prince Charlie rested on his flight from Culloden in 1746.
