There is Wi-fi at each property to keep you connected to the outside world should you wish to be. Or just leave devices alone and enjoy the extensive and diverse libraries of books and films available in both. The Big House offers an 120 m2 loft style space, the like of which is not to be found anywhere else on the island. The house features a well appointed kitchen with a separate dining space, all sitting quietly under an imposing vaulted ceiling. The architectural features are beautifully juxtaposed with the comfortable and cosy reading snug, warmed by a traditional fuel stove. The comfortable double bedroom, with beautiful Danish style furniture, is the perfect place to rest your head in peace. At the end of the day relax and unwind in the en-suite bathroom offering a Japanese style soaking tub - big enough for two! With views across the Sound towards Ensay, Killegray and Pabbay, The Big House is a truly sublime space.

The kitchen offers a breakfast bar area for eating, and leads round into the beautiful sitting area where you can see straight out across the Sound. To the north side of the property, the bedroom provides a contrasting calm and cozy feel. Ensuite facilties feature a combined Japanese tub and rain shower. Stunning, superbly well appointed and with comfortable for two, The Other House is equally as desirable as The Big House. The island hamlet of Borrisdale offers an ideal location to explore south Harris and further afield. Take in the numerous coves and cliffs and the views over Skye as you explore Renesh Point, St Clements Church or the intriguing underground shelters of the WWII installation on the island. If you are lucky enough to visit in September, you can join in with the annual Mountain Festival with guided walks and lectures, along with the famous 5 Peaks Challenge. Fishing is also a popular pass time in Harris, with the waters surround the island well stocked with pollock and mackerel, and there are plenty of sea and game fishing (trout, sea trout, salmon) trips that can be arranged locally. However you chose to spend your time on the Islands, the all round design and location of the Sound of Harris speaks volumes to visitors every time.
