Graded 5 stars by Visit Scotland. just a 5 min, walk to the secluded Northton beaches and Vast expanse of white sandy Scarista beach. More beaches and walks close by. Golden Eagles flying over, wild life on your doorstep, birdwatchers bring your field scope, you can watch a great variety of birds from the house.

Go out for long walks and in winter, cuddle by the stove gazing out at storm-lashed seas, watch the sun rise or enjoy sunsets from the panoramic window.

Or bubble in the Jacuzzi bath after a long walk on the beach in all-singing, all-dancing pristine comfortable bathrooms with a small Sauna and fluffy tartan towels. Children love it being so close to the beaches and sea, building sandcastles, catching shrimps or little fish in the puddles, swim in the sea, or enjoy body boarding in the waves. The cottage is also very popular with honeymoon couples:)

Northton is the ideal place to explore the islands and spend your family holidays! You'll love it if you crave adventure, for this far-flung crofting town on Harris's south coast, with jewel like white sandy beaches, transforms the Machair in spring sunshine into a stunning sweep of wild flowers and birds.
