Wooden flooring throughout, leather sofas and yes we accept well behaved pets.The cottage is on one of the highest areas of Bernera which gives it a wide panoramic view of an area which is known for it's outstanding natural beauty. It is close to beaches and coastal and inland walks many of which have been sign posted out by the community. The views span from Achmore, Uig and old Hill in Bosta. Harsgeir View is so named because of its view from the kitchen window to the tiny island of Harsgeir in the mouth of West Loch Roag which surrounds Bernera and Uig. The cottage is fully serviced each week and a welcome pack of local produce will greet you. Leave the cottage, walk over the bridge at Valasay, up the side of the Toab Loch and over to the fantastic beach at Bosta were the reconstructed Iron Age house ( open summer months) sits on the original archaeological site which was discovered in the 1990's. The finds of this dig can been seen at the community run museum which serves tea and coffee during the summer. Bird watchers and wildlife lovers are regular visitors to the cottage, Seals, Buzzards and even Otters are known to inhabit the immediate location. You are welcome to use the fishing rods in the cottage if you fancy a spot of rock fishing and the cottage is well stocked with books and games if you fancy a stay in day.

About the neighbourhood
The village of Hacklete is one of many small villages on Bernera which make up this unique rural environment where the people are friendly and welcoming. The cottage is centered in a district steeped in Norse history. Village names resound like a role call from Viking Valhalla Valtos, Kneep, Reef, Uigen, Mangersta , Hacklete, Valsay and Croir the origin of the name Bernera ( Bjarnarey) thought to be Bjorn's Island. Bernera is the site of the Land Riots of 1874 a direct response to the Highland Clearances history was made when the result was a new Act of Parliament which gave crofters protection from eviction.
How to get there
Flights to the Isle of Lewis are on a baily basis from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness. The island is serviced by Caledonian MacBrayne ferries from Ullapool and from Uig in Skye.
