‘Hobbit House’ in Harris.

Eight years ago we took a chance and booked a week in a cottage on the Isle of Harris. We had been to Harris before but never really stopped very long to explore so thought we’d spend more time there to get to know the area better. I can’t imagine we expected to still be returning in 2013! We totally fell in love with, not just the island, but our cottage as well. For me it was definitely love at first sight! And once inside I was hooked and just didn’t want to leave. When we tried to book up for the next year we found we were not alone as it was already fully booked. Since then we get our Harris ‘fix’ every second summer and after this year’s visit we still haven’t had enough! Taigh Sheumas aka Hobbit House.
And here are a few inside images.The wood or peat burning stove for those to so warm days.Very comfy sofa to chill on and watch the world go by.Luxurious spa bath to soak away the aches after long walks!  Or ........:)Very comfortable bed adorned with  Harris tweed cushions:)
And outside this idyllic haven is a carpet of wild flowers called the machair.
Machair flowers surround the cottage.Even on the roof!
And just when you think you will never want to venture far from this heavenly place ……you see the enticing sands of Scarista stretching before you!Scarista beach.
Yes, Harris and Taigh Sheumas have lodged themselves firmly in our hearts and while others jet off in search of beach resorts in the sun, I have a feeling we will be taking the ferry to Harris for many years to come!
