3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Isle of Harris, Lewis and Harris, Outer Hebrides, The Hebrides, Scotland
The Croft house is beautifully situated beside Loch Stockinsh, in the Minch sea next to one of the few small working fishing harbours, at Stockinish pier.
The self catering accommodation sleeps 4 adults, 1 child and one toddler with option of a further 2 adults or children on double sofa bed downstairs.

Set in its own grounds and in the desirable Bays area on the east coast of the isle of Harris it sits away from the small road that leads to the port and is sheltered by the hills that surround it. Its perfectly positioned for a holiday of seclusion and privacy and in the summer the sun shines on the house from dawn to dusk.

The Calmac ferry port of Tarbert is only 10 minutes away where there are local amenities and the ferry terminal back to Uig on the Isle of Skye.

The house is well located for both the beautiful east coast of Harr...

We, a group of 4 people, spent one week this August in this lovely house. From the first moment we entered the house we really did fall in love with it. It is lovely decorated, has everything you need and is so cozy. My daughter and her boyfriend were really impressed with all the music instruments and loved to make...

I want to start by saying that I find the review submitted below by Angus 441 mean spirited, harsh, unfair and downright inaccurate!! I find it hard to believe that he was describing the same accommodation that we enjoyed being in so much. Anyway, I appreciate that we are all entitled to our opinions, but this review could run the...

The cottage was ideally located for exploring and enjoying Harris. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Croft House. It is close to Stocknish Harbour where we sourced delicious fresh shellfish. It is 15 minutes from Tarbert and to Luskentyre beach. We enjoyed coming back to the Croft House after a day exploring the island. We particularly appreciated the open...

About the neighbourhood
We are located in the desirable bays area of South Harris. Here there are many small hamlets situated all along the east coast of Harris inlets down to Rodel. The west coast beaches are only 10 minutes away and the bays are a great place to explore cafes and artists studios, sandy and rocky beaches and wildlife.
Getting around
The island bus stops at the top of our road about 200m from the house. It comes a various times each day and takes you to Tarbert or Leverbrough and beyond to Lewis.
