Isle of Harris, Eilean Siar
This modernist cabin sits on the southern tip of Scotland's Isle of Harris, offering stunning views of the Isle of Skye and beyond.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
On the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides, just off Scotland's northwest coast, this modernist marvel boasts a slick design, arresting views, and a getaway in a location that is truly one of a kind.
Although contemporary in appearance, Blue Hare blends in seamlessly with its surrounding rugged landscape. Its sharp corners and angled ceilings lend it an avant-garde aesthetic, while the overall appearance offers a nod to Scottish bothy cottages.
The interior is open-planned and has everything you could need for a cosy island escape - including a warming wood burner. Sleeping a maximum of two guests, Blue Hare is perfect for those couples who enjoy nothing more than each other's company, the great outdoors, and an escape from city life. Just make sure to bring your walking boots!
The interior has been beautifully and considerately decorated with a keen eye for style and practicality evident throughout. Large windows offer arresting island views, bathing the rooms in light during the day, while starlit skies are in full view during the night. The main area is open planned, housing a well-equipped kitchen with a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, oven and ceramic hob, a small dining table for two, and a comfy queen size bed.
The far end of the room has a wall-mounted TV, a cosy wood burner, and two armchairs which look out through the floor to ceiling windows. The bathroom is a wet room and includes a rain shower, underfloor heating, and a WC. Step outside the house and onto the large decking area, where you can enjoy a BBQ or your morning coffee amidst the serenity of island life.
Known for its rugged landscapes, striking island views, and its various hiking trails, the Isle of Harris is a firm favourite of outdoor lovers. It also makes for an ideal wildlife-spotting location, with eagles, seals, whales, dolphins and otters all observable along the coast. In nearby Lingerbay Loch, there are plenty of outdoor activities on offer, including fishing, swimming, paddle boarding, and kayaking. For those looking for an adrenaline rush in the bracing waters of the Hebrides, the pitted coastline offers numerous opportunities for surfing.

That’s a very nice place to stay, well done, and the location is exceptional.

We chose Blue Hare because of the contemporary architecture and stylish design features. The views are wonderful and ever changing as the light and the weather roll in and out. We enjoyed watching White Tailed Eagles fly past and Gannets diving out to sea. Swimming is available right on the doorstep, with a choice of a freshwater loch or a sea loch. We were lucky the sun was out and the tides high and went in most mornings. The water was refreshing, but not cold and is well worth the effort for a unique and stunning wild swimming experience. Seals are around and, if you're lucky, may join you for a dip!

An absolute gem of a contemporary cabin, so well designed with all mod cons and in the most stunning location. Easy to find, and the perfect place to forget the world and relax. The interior colour schemes and textures are a beautiful complement to the drama of the landscape, heathery mauves and gorse greens outside and in.

A super, cosy and comfortable cabin to enjoy Harris from, Blue Hare is tucked away in a lovely raised position giving it the most wonderful views from the floor to ceiling window at one end, and a very special sense of being alone in the landscape. The interior is well appointed, stylish and a very relaxing spot to spend the week. After long walks and trips out during the day this was the perfect place to return to. Would love to come back, one day. Thoroughly recommended, thank you very much!

This is a special place. It's so sensitively sited within the rocky east coast of Harris that it's barely visible, yet the views out are spectacular. It's also thoughtfully designed inside so that the one roomed space* feels spacious, it's flooded with light and landscape from the walls of windows but is utterly private, and it's well equipped and beautifully furnished. If you like the idea of waking up with the sunrise with views over to Skye and a couple of sea eagles cruising past then this is the place. We spent our days walking, kayaking and cycling and every evening drinking in the view with a glass of wine - it doesn't get more perfect. Thank you Angus and Beverley. *the bathroom is a separate room.

A truly magical stay at Blue Hare. The cabin has everything you could need and Is so stylishly and thoughtfully designed. A perfect base for my exploration of the south of Harris. Beverley and Angus were on hand if needed but the property was also very private and offered the retreat I was looking for. Homemade shortbread and water for my furry friend on arrival were a lovely touch too! The star gazing was beautiful, as was the food I picked up From Croft36 not too far away. My first visit to Harris and I know it won’t be my last as the island is just breathtaking. And having such a comfortable and luxurious base to return to each day was such a bonus. Hope to return to the Blue Hare on me day. Thank you Angus and Beverley Kirsty & Rey
