Harbour Cottage is a great space to get away. It's a simple house with an amazing fireplace, great sun lounge and fantastic view out over the sea and it's own little bay. It has many books and games, as well as a full set of kitchen utensils/appliances making it easy to cook.

The living room is very cosy at night, and it has lots of interesting local spots within walking distance. Perfect for anyone looking to get away from everything and spend nights by the fire and enjoy walking about the island of Barra.

We took our dog who had an amazing time running along the beaches and exploring the bay.
