Cuckoo Cottage features both traditional and contemporary elements to create a comfortable and easy environment to make a holiday base as effortless as possible. It's underfloor heating provides an unobtrusive ambient temperature even in winter, and the large south facing ground floor windows look directly onto the Harris hills, sea and the island of Taransay.<BR>The cottage is perfectly situated to explore Harris and Lewis, with easy access for hill-walking, visiting historical sites, and walking the miles of white sand beaches which have made the area so famous. The cottage is only metres from the dunes and beach of Luskentyre, providing a constantly changing, highly photogenic experience during every season.<BR><BR>

Excellent location and a great stay in a lovely cottage. Having stayed last year we knew it would be good and the cottage was as clean, tidy and well equipped as previously. Although maybe a little maintenance of minimal things is required,like stuff lying around the back of the house, a proper washing line, back door handle loose, kitchen tap...

About the neighbourhood
Harris is the perfect holiday location for outdoors activities. There are wonderful routes for hill-walkers, both difficult and easy, giving spectacular views, with opportunities to see eagles, deer and historical remains. There are lots of guided walks available which can explain the intricacies of the natural and cultural heritage. <BR>Trips can be made to the remote islands of St Kilda, loch or sea fishing can be hired or sea life tours taken around the east coast bays. <BR>Cycling and surfing are increasingly popular, and surfing is now beginning to take advantage of the long Atlantic rollers which constantly break on the west coast. Simply sitting on a sand-dune or boulder listening to the sounds of the island can be the most relaxing and spiritual experience.<BR>Rec... more
