Number 4, Bunavoneader, Tarbert

Sleeps 6 - Wood Burner - Wifi - Pets Welcome

Guests with children - see note below

Situated only 4 miles north of Tarbert – Number 4 - with its spectacular sea and mountain views - is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity that is Bunavoneader.  The road to Huisinis is quite spectacular and the Huisinis beach is just at the end of the road. Equally, it is perfectly located for exploring the island and all it has to offer.  Whether you want to stay local and enjoy the beautiful views over West Loch Tarbert to Beinn Dubh and Tarransay or venture out west to the Luskentyre and Rosamol beaches (only a 20-minute drive away) and on to the equally spectacular Seilebost, Horgabost Borve and Scarista beaches – you will find it a perfect base from which to do so.

The accommodation is all on the one level, the sitting room and en-suite master bedroom are located to the front and both enjoy views across West Loch Tarbert and to An Cliseam. The other bedrooms a double and a twin, together with the dining kitchen are located to the rear. Completing the facilities is a family bathroom and utility room. Tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard, the property has oil central heating throughout and a lovely wood burner in the sitting room for those colder evenings.  

In the Outer Hebrides, Harris is a beautiful island of great contrasts.  While the west coast of Harris, south of Tarbert, provides spectacular beaches and seascapes, the centre and east coast are – in contrast – more hill and loch terrain. The local licensed filling station can provide a selection of everyday supplies while the nearest Supermarket is located in Tarbert.  They provide everything you might need for your stay and are known to be friendly and helpful. There is a choice of restaurants/dining options both in Tarbert and surrounding areas of Leverburgh, Scarista and Ardhasaig.

For walkers and climbers, the North Harris hills are quite accessible from the house (which provides information and routes for all grades) and are wild and unspoilt.  This habitat for a great number of golden eagles and red deer is also home to Sea eagles, red grouse and mountain hares. The Clisham at 799m is the highest point in the Outer Hebrides with spectacular views from its summit to Lewis in the North, South Harris and -on a clear day - St Kilda in the West.   You can take a private tour around the island or further afield and there is a regular bus service around the islands from Tarbert. You can also sail to St Kilda from here and all in all, you will certainly have an insight into Hebridean life on these ‘islands on the edge’.

Visit the galleries exhibiting and selling local Hebridean art and jewellery and the regular craft market of locally made goods. There is, of course, the now world-renowned Harris Gin distillery.

Whatever you want to experience of modern-day life or the history, crofting and seafaring traditions of the island, it is all accessible from Number 4.
