Set in the beautiful remote village of Scarista on the Island of Harris in the Outer Hebrides, we have two turf roofed, luxury self catering cottages, each with its own sauna and Jacuzzi, for the ideal Hebridean retreat. Our award-winning, isolated and secluded cottages are totally private yet only 10 minutes walk from an award winning restaurant and 20 minutes drive from shops and bars.
Overlooking Taransay, mountains in the north of the island and an archipelago of islands in the Sound of Harris this is the ultimate place to enjoy a romantic and luxurious break. Enjoy the stunning panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean crashing onto some of its many beautiful beaches.
Owner-managed by Neil & Rhoda Campbell, the cottages have been built on Rhoda's family croft in Scarista, which is now into the third generation of the same family. Neil was born and brought up on a croft in Skye. Both decided to move back to Harris when Neil sold his business and embarked on building the first five-star self-catering accommodation on Lewis & Harris.
The couple with their two children have built a house behind the cottages so that they could be available should guests need any help in making their stay a truly memorable world class experience. Neil and Rhoda feel it is important that they are on hand to welcome guests and ensure their stay is a memorable one. They can also source local produce such as scallops, langoustines and lobster. They can advise on the best walks and best places to eat. Rhoda is a fluent Gaelic speaker and happy to converse with you in the native tongue should you so wish.
“We believe our turf roofed cottages with sauna, Jacuzzi and log/peat burning stove provide the perfect base for a truly luxurious and relaxing Hebridean holiday. We are committed to minimising the environmental impact of our activities as evidenced by achieving a Green Tourism Business Scheme Gold award. Blue Reef Cottages are situated in a pristine world class environment our promise is to combine this with a world class service to ensure our guests have a truly memorable experience.”
