Luxurious solitude greets visitors to the Broch, which is modelled on an iron-age fortress, and sits on a remote ridgeline overlooking woodland, lochs, a golden sand beach, and the Atlantic beyond.

Considered simple design has been used throughout using natural materials: driftwood furniture, stairs made from rough-hewn tree slabs, fixtures of carved stone.

The Broch has been designed to the highest standard and sits in a stunning location on the west coast of Harris. If you want peace, quiet, luxury and utter relaxation then this is the place for you.

Absolutely amazing place. Design is incredible. It was well equipped and a lot of thought had gone into the whole project. It was quiet and peaceful, the views were wonderful even when it was cloudy and raining (which was not often). A real 'get away from it all' holiday location made even better by being located on Harris.

A most brilliant stay. Easily booked on line and then found by car from the Tarbert ferry. A great building well fitted out over three floors: a bedroom with a skylight; huge windows to while away time watching the sea, the light on the hills or the birds; walk in shower or sit in bath for two. Intend to return.
