Good salmon and sea trout fishing on the doorstep. Wild brown trout in the hundreds of lochs. Dogs welcome so long as they don't chase or worry sheep. Friends who have come have invariably stated that they have never slept so well and put it down to the air.More

The Anchorage (bar/restaurant) about1.5 miles allowed dogs into the bar area. Lovely food also does take away. Great area for...More

Thank you very much, Rosie. I'm very gratified that you enjoyed Harris and get pleasure from feeling I have assisted someone to experience this special place. Unfortunately it seems you left before the arrival of the walrus!

About the neighbourhood
Small village of friendly, often shy, helpful and honest folk. Harris has oft been described as 'Scotland in miniature' - the east side is coves, headlands, cliffs and sea lochs, the centre is moorland, many many lochs, and hills (some like the moon), the west is just plain gorgeous, while the north has a dramatic mountain range.
Getting around
The fact is that a car is more or less essential. There is a very intermittent and frankly unreliable bus service the only alternative to which is taxis which are expensive. Apart from some stretches of the main road from Tarbert down to Leverburgh, all roads are single track with passing places. The roads in Lewis are predominantly double track. You will doubtless wish to explore for yourselves but I particularly suggest that Husinish, at the end of an Alpine fourteen-mile drive along the road that goes off to the west about five miles north of Tarbert, should not be missed, while the area around Callanish on the west side of Lewis is very well worth the drive.
