Taigh Iomhair is a traditional stone built cottage which originally had a thatched roof. It was the croft-house on this croft until 25 years ago when the current croft house was built. It then remained unocuppied for a number of years until twelve years ago when we decided to renovate it and this has brought it to a very comfortable and cosy standard while retaining it's character as far as possible.

The cottage is in a very pleasant and peaceful setting with a sea view across to the island of Scalpay, the bays area on the East coast of Harris and the Isle of Skye in the distance.

Sea-birds are an everyday sight and seals and otters put in a regular appearance to have a look at what is happening on shore!!

Across the bay from the cottage is the island of Scalpay (population approx 300) and it is now accessible by bridge which is one mile from the cottage. On Scalpay you will find a post office and shop where you can buy newspapers and basic groceries.
