Old Pier Cottage is a stylish but cosy dog-friendly two bedroom cottage on the shore of West Loch Tarbert, just minutes from the beautiful beaches and incredible sights the islands of Harris and Lewis have to offer.

It’s a 5 minute walk from Tarbert Ferry Terminal - and the Isle of Harris Distillery!

If you fancy hunkering down for a cosy stay at any time of the year, we've got you covered. And if you're in Hebrides for an adventure, then this is the base for you too!

The space
With not one, but *two* wood-burning stoves, this is the cosiest two bedroom cottage of all cosy cottages. Get under the blankets in the living room for a bit of a Netflix binge, or why not explore our little record collection and play some vinyl while reading a good book?!

The kitchen is fully equipped so you can cook - or bake - to your heart's content! Crank up the volume on the DAB radio and pour yourself something nice while you're at it.

The lovely bath is only a few minutes from being filled with hot water for you to soak in after a bracing day out in the Atlantic wind.

If you're out and about, take advantage of the fishings rods and crab lines we provide; or why not take our half set of clubs down to Scarista Golf Club to play on the 9-hole course? There's a bike rack outside and plenty space in the utility room to hang your wet clothes. The utility room is also where you'll find the washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher.

It's a small cottage so it's worth bearing in mind the attic bedrooms weren't designed for our 21st century expectations (in other words, the bedrooms are small and have a restricted ceiling height) but we hope we have created a comfy, special place for you to kick back and relax on this magical island.

What to expect:

- A lovely, local welcome pack filled with some essentials and goodies
- A bag of logs and kindling to get you going for the two wood-burning stoves
- Oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, cafetiere
- Washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher
- Super fast broadband
- Smart TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime
- Fishing rods
- Half set of golf clubs
- Lots of great books to read and flick through
- Vinyl records and player
- Board games and playing cards
- DAB Radio
- High quality bedding for a perfect night's sleep
- Dog bowls, towels and tennis balls
- Self check-in

Well, what can we say about Harris that you have no doubt not already seen? We are 15 minutes from the world famous Luskentyre beach, which is a nice bonus!

A few steps from our front door is West Loch, where you can do some fishing or take a cold shower in the waterfall!

Across the road is the local school which has a public swimming pool, gym and sauna.

You can sit in the back garden and look out towards the Sound of Taransay with an Isle of Harris Gin & tonic in your hand!

Tarbert has small shops, cafes and a couple of restaurants which are a 5 minute walk away, so you can enjoy the feeling of a Hebridean escape while still being within walking distance to a meal that's been cooked for you! The Harris Hotel is a 4 minute walk and there you'll find a great bar and restaurant.

We're about 50mins away from Stornoway.

Old Pier Cottage is perfectly located for exploring Harris *and* Lewis, and we are only a quick ferry ride over to Skye and Uist.
