Property Description

Well-placed on the hillside to enjoy magnificent coastal views across the sea to the Outer Hebrides, and untouched by the rapid development of this corner of the island, this delightful detached holiday property is an ideal retreat to unwind and relax at any time of year. Standing alone and accessed by a track, it has beautiful sunsets over the sea, castles to explore; while the distant hills of Harris make for a memorable stay. There are boat trips to enjoy and many fine restaurants nearby, including the famous ‘Three Chimneys’ (5 miles away). Shops 2 miles.

Wide steps to main entrance and decking. Spacious living/dining room with wood-burning stove, rugs on wooden floor and patio doors to decking. Kitchen. Shower room with toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Fanastic property, views absolutely stunning!! Loved the log fire! A brilliant away from it all holiday, only one problem, no pets allowed so we had to leave our dog behind as we had him after we booked Hirta, would really love to go back so please have a think about maybe accepting dogs!! Sept 2012.
  2. A wonderful week in an amazing location. The views from this cottage are stunning and the owner very helpful. There are some great restaurants within easy driving distance but we ate in most nights just enjoying the view. Several times we saw dolphins from the cottage and once even a minke whale. Perfect for wildlife and seascape lovers and within walking distance of Neist point. June 2012.
  3. Very comfortable, well equipped cottage with fantastic views. June 2012.
  4. Staying at this cottage was a pure joy and we were lucky enough to have brilliant weather. We did our non-perishable shopping at Morrissons in Ford William and the rest on Syke - we also filled up with petrol as it is more expensive on Syke. The Co-op at Broadford has a petrol station (just after you get off the Syke Bridge) and the prices are more like the mainland. Because it was summer it got light around 3am and dark at about 11pm. We are thinking of booking again next year. May 2012.
  5. Property is very spacious and well equipped. Views are absolutely breathtaking, and setting is very peaceful. March 2012.
  6. In a beautiful location overlooking the sea with views of cliffs and waterfalls. Very quiet and peaceful. We lost track of the days. Even the weather couldnt spoil it. Cosy and romantic, ideal for a honeymoon. Feb 2012.
  7. Hirta was a great cottage in a great location.We loved the feeling of being in the middle of no where. Feb 2012.
  8. Warm, cosy, quiet, with excellent view. Nov 2011.
  9. Cosy, quiet, modernised stone cottage in isolated and private location with superb sea views. Nice blend of character and modern. Has everything you need. Sept 2011.
  10. Myself and my new wife stayed at Hirta for our honeymoon. The property felt so much at home and has the best views that I have seen. I am from the north east of Scotland and have good views where I stay but from there it was just beautiful. Everytime you looked out the window it looked like a different place. The cottage itself is very well insulated and warm. Nothing like sitting in the evening with the log burner going also!!! Aug 2011.
  11. Private position; great views. Heaters and stove warmed the place up quickly, which is very important in a winter visit. Feb 2011.
  12. Spacious property in a lovely location with stunning views. Jan 2011.

  16. Amazing view. During our stay we took about 100 pictures only about the our cottages view over the Minch out to the Isle of Harris. Aug 2010.
  17. It was really cosy and we had lots of logs for the fire all week which we really appreciated as the weather wasn’t good so we just chilled in the cottage. Really cosy. July 2010.
  18. Its beautiful position looking out towards the Outer Hebrides. July 2010.
