Sonas cottage is ideally situated for exploring Harris and Lewis. It is well equipped with all the standard equipment that you would expect to find in a self catering let, but then it...

Sonas has undoubtedly got more "features" than most properties in the Hebrides, sauna, cinema room etc,. But having come from a beautifully appointed and well equipped Croft in South Uist we felt Sonas lacked the warmth and attention to small detail that makes the accommodation a "home from home" rather than just "a place to stay".

About the neighbourhood
This dramatic and picturesque island has many places to explore. From the majestic North Harris hills with their spectacular scenery and wonderful wildlife to its many breath-taking beaches.

Offshore, smaller, uninhabited islands may also be accessed, such as the iconic St Kilda, a World Heritage Site with some of the most amazing vistas to be seen anywhere in the world.

The rich cultural heritage of Harris can be seen in its archaeology sites such as St. Clements Church in Rodel, the chapel ruins at Northton, and its standing stones to name but a few.

The living culture of the Isle of Harris can be sampled in the Gaelic language, in music and in song.

This place is truly somewhere special, and the best way to discover how special it is, is to come and experience it for yourself.
