Hebridean Cottage Holidays
Stop the world for a while
Hebridean Cottage Holidays is a family-run business, offering self-catering accommodation since 1969, and we would love to extend our welcome to you on this wonderful island.
A wee bit about the cottage
Harbour Cottage was originally built as a croft house, and today stands right on the water’s edge across the bay from each other, commanding superb views across the Minch to Skye, Rhum and the mainland.
The coastland around the cottage has many inlets and sandy coves where seals frequently swim into to give our guests a friendly wave, coming up as far as the cottages at high tide. Here can also be seen herons, oyster-catchers, cormorants and guillemots, as well as a variety of other seabirds.
A short drive from the cottage will take you to the glorious sands of Vatersay, Tangusdale and Eoligarry. Barra is famed for its beautiful, unspoilt views, the best of which can be taken in atop Heaval, Barra’s highest hill.
We are sure that you will enjoy your stay with us and we will do our utmost to ensure that you have an enjoyable time on the Barra. Your host, Eppa, will be happy to help you in any way and to provide information on local points of interest, such as arranging visits to Kisimul Castle, Barra’s ancient stronghold of the Clan MacNeil, or trips to neighbouring islands.
