tourism board that would have accomodation availability?

Hello

trying to find axxomodations on the Isle of Harris for July 19-21 but didn't realize the music festival was on and these are the days we are there.

we are finding it very difficult to find availability for us in either a smaller b and b that wouldnt have us leaving too early in the am for early ferry at Stornoway.

is there a local email that we can contact someone who may have a list of available places?

thanks kindly

Not all B&Bs will be listed. Many rely on passing trade. But there is a B&B landlady mafia. One approach would be to email some listed B&Bs, even though you think they're full, asking if they can recommend someone else if they are.

If you are catching the early ferry from Stornoway (6 am or 7 am, depending on the day), wouldn't it be better to stay in Stornoway rather than Harris?

hello dhmellor, yes, we are looking at stornoway but due to the music fest accomodations are either well over our budget or all booked..so we are finding difficullty, i have a list from the tourist board with two that are about 45 mins away and that is our option at this point..
