Portfolio Of Cottages In Outstanding Coastal Location For Sale On The Isle Of Harris

Located in a truly stunning position in the Outer Hebrides lies a portfolio of four coastal properties for sale through Galbraith, Scotland’s leading property consultancy.  

The island of Lewis and Harris is the largest island in Scotland and with diverse landscapes, a fascinating history and a strong cultural heritage, it is the ultimate ‘get away from it all’ destination.

Beachview Cottages are situated in Northton, a crofting township set on the beautiful west coast of Harris. Northton is scattered along the side road off the spinal route A859, that leads to a beautiful headland of white sandy beaches, fertile machair, coastal walks and a historic ruined chapel. 

This portfolio of four cottages is a highly successful holiday letting business which was established in 2009 and offers three to five star self-catering accommodation. Each cottage has been sensitively designed to sit comfortably in the landscape whilst the interiors have been carefully planned to reflect the romance and atmosphere of the beautiful and rugged setting.

Phiddy Robertson, handling the sale for Galbraith, said: 

The sale of Beachview Cottages presents a rare opportunity for interested parties keen to pursue a change of career or perhaps as an alternative investment opportunity. The cottages, which are let from April to September, are fully booked each year with a high level of repeat bookings. However, potential exists to extend the letting season and grow the business further at a time when staycations are soaring and the opportunity to explore the rugged and unspoilt beauty of Scotland’s Outer Hebridean islands is high on people’s wish list.  

Two of the cottages have spectacular views over the golden sands of Scarista beach. Little-known Northton jewel beaches are just a short walk from the cottages along the paths and tracks that crisscross the machair. The coastline is dotted with an abundance of beaches ranging in size from the small to the three-miles wide Luskentyre, all with stunning views over clear blue seas to the neighbouring islands of the Outer Hebrides, a truly outstanding destination.

All the beaches in this area are popular with surfers and golfers can enjoy a round at Harris Golf Club in Scarista, a first-class links course. For walkers and wildlife enthusiasts, the fertile low-lying ground along the coast is abundant with wildflowers and birdlife, including golden and white-tailed eagles which are regularly sighted in the area.

An adjacent block of owner occupied croftland, planted with mixed woodland and extending to around 3.1 ha, lies to the south-west of the property and is available to purchase by separate negotiation.

Beachview Cottages, Northton, Isle of Harris, is for sale through Galbraith for offers over £1,500,000.
