Aside from absorbing in the breath taking scenery, there are so many things to see and do in the Outer Hebrides...

The House

Take a look around the inside of Thistle Cottage, the perfect location for your holiday to the Isle of Harris...

Getting Here

There are various ways to get to the Isle of Harris and we have laid them all out for you, including links to timetables...


The Summer months are incredibly busy on the island so make sure to book your stay early to avoid any disappointment...

Thistle cottage was newly built in 2019. It contains two bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a double bed with en-suite, while the second bedroom can be set up as a double or two singles with use of main bathroom. The main area consists of an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area.

The views from the front of the building look out over the Seilebost machair and it is only a 3 minute walk to one of the most popular beaches in Harris.

We are a dog friendly property for up to 2 (well-behaved) dogs and have on-site parking for 2 vehicles. Although if you do not wish to use your own vehicle, the local bus service can drop & collect directly outside of the cottage itself.

The property is located just 10 miles from Tarbert and Leverburgh, both of which have various places to visit or eat. Closer to hand is the Machair Kitchen Restaurant which is located only 3 miles North of the cottage. It opened in March 2017 and is operated from Talla na Mara Community Enterprise Centre by Hotel Hebrides.

The restaurant boasts a one-of-a-kind view overlooking another of the island's unspoiled beaches. For more information and to view their menus please visit their website.
