Self Catering On The Isle Of Harris In The Western Isles

May 24, 2008
Have you ever imagined yourself relaxing on a beautiful coast on a far off archipelago questioning the meaning of life? As the rest of mankind bowl along their every day matters you will just lie down and relax. The Hebrides of Scotland are an archipelago of such islands and islets abounding in fantastic landscapes and beautiful shores. Maybe the prettiest of regions is the island named Harris.

If you are thinking of taking a vacation in the Hebrides Isles why not consider basing your vacation on the island of Harris. You will discover that there is loads of Accommodation on Harris available throughout most of the year and one of the best ways to stay is in self-catering accommodation. Hiring a self-catering house near to a beach is really easy, these days you just get yourself onto the web and use Google to search for it. Sadly it is usual for some accommodation to be reserved over a year by satisfied visitors to the island. Obviously it is immensely important that you book at the earliest opportunity, waiting for a few days or months could cause you to miss out.

Isle of Harris Self Catering Accommodation is truly brilliant the cottage is always impeccable and highly pleasant whichever Harris Self Catering Accommodation you decide upon. While visiting Harris in the Western Isles/Outer Hebrides you should think about a excursion to Lewis (isle of) where you will find a number of incredibly popular places of interest and landmarks such as the beautiful and incredibly important Calanais(Callanish) stone circle. The Calanais(Callanish) stone circle are amongst the most important and remarkable in Europe.

About 1km down the road from the Callanish standing stones is Dun Carloway Broch which is an ancient iron age dual-walled drystone structure of which the purpose is unknown (but a large number of people consider it was defensive). All across the Outer Hebrides/Western Isles you will find an enormous number of areas of special interest. It would seem that around every corner there appears an outline of rocks where at some time in the past there was some kind building. These were at some time in the past a type of building known as a blackhouse.

These days there are hardly any blackhouses in the Western Isles/Outer Hebrides. There are a few that have been conserved and a couple that have been renovated and modernized and available to rent. Happily there is a blackhouse available as Accommodation in Harris at Scarista on South Harris. This astounding cottage-like building is bordering onto one of the most enchanting beaches on Harris (and the Isle of Harris is widely known for having some of the greatest beaches in Europe.
