  • "Lovely comfortable cottage set in the most amazing part of Harris, views are stunning, host is very welcoming."

    Recommend visiting the Eilean Glas lighthouse and the coastal route, views over the sea are spectacular, didn’t manage to spot any whales or dolphins but enjoyed the walk, although pretty tiring. Can’t recommend this cottage enough, it was a special holiday for us. The second time in Harris and love it.

    We were sorry we were only able to stay for a couple of nights and we very much hope to be able to return soon. A perfect place to stay. We couldn't have asked for more.

  • "Thanks for sharing your comfortable, warm and well equipped chalet."

    Whilst compact it is well equipped, well positioned and well maintained. The short drive between the chalet and Tarbert is one of the best on the island. Thanks also for the provisions which were most helpful. Kind regards, Andrew

  • "Beautifully clean and spacious chalet in a good location to explore Harris and Lewis, and Golden Eagles seen almost daily in the area."

    The chalet is a real home from home with a really well equipped kitchen. Hosts were extremely helpful and the langoustines supplied by Finlay were delicious! Wife says it’s the little things that count and was very pleased to find a good mirror and place for hairdrying and makeup, and also a really good supply of coat hangers! Thank you Hazel and Finlay for a lovely week in your chalet.

  • "Braemore chalet was the perfect base for our week on Harris, super comfortable bed, spotlessly clean, great location & Hazel was a very warm and welcoming host."

    Highlights were visiting St Kilda, truly unique and breathtaking scenery. We walked to Eilean Glas lighthouse and watched a pod of dolphins playing close to the shore, truly magical. Be sure to book a much coveted table at Uig Sands restaurant, the views and the food are sublime

The property

Tarbert 5.2 miles.

Nestling in a wonderfully remote setting on Scalpay, Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides, is this charming single-storey holiday chalet, Braemore Chalet.

Perfect for a couple looking to get away from it all, Braemore Chalet is the ultimate romantic hideaway and enjoys a superb setting with simply stunning views.

Entering the chalet is like being wrapped in a warm hug with the woodburning stove forming a welcome focal point to the open-plan living space.

It’s easy to imagine curling up on the sofa in front of a roaring fire with that special someone, favourite tipple in hand and admiring the breath-taking views outside the window while enjoying some quality time together.

The beauty of the intimate space is that you can still enjoy each other’s company while rustling up a romantic meal for two in the extremely well-equipped kitchen.

Why not make the most of some of the fantastic produce available locally to prepare a sumptuous feast for your better half before sitting down at the elegant dining table for a romantic candle-lit meal for two?

After a tiring day of exploring, it isn’t far to stagger to bed and the double bedroom offers a snug and inviting space with a beautiful picture window framing the stunning views outside.

To complete the property there is a stylish bathroom where you can choose from a long, hot soak in the bath or a refreshing shower.

Stepping outside the chalet and you are transported to another world where the skies are constantly changing and wildlife is in abundance.

Keep an eye out for eagles and even otters which can be seen close to the property.

Within walking distance there are unspoilt beaches, cycling, hill walking and there is an attractive circular walk around Scalpay where you can see the Eilan Glas lighthouse and over to the Isle of Skye.

Tarbert is a short but scenic drive away and as well as a numbers of shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants there is the Harris Gin Distillery well worth a visit as is the Harris Tweed Centre.

A little further away is Stornoway which is worth a visit in its own right with its gift shops, award-winning eateries and historical attractions such as Lews Castle and from here you can get a boat to explore neighbouring islands.

The property is a short drive from the ferry terminal in Tarbert.

Small but perfectly formed, Braemore Chalet is the perfect romantic bolthole.
