Beachview Cottages are in Northton, a crofting township set on the beautiful west coast of Harris
in the Outer Hebrides. The island of Lewis and Harris is the largest island in Scotland and with
diverse landscapes, a fascinating history and a strong cultural heritage, is the ultimate get away
from it all destination.

Northton is scattered along the side road off the spinal route A859, that leads to a beautiful
headland of white sandy Northton beaches, fertile machair, coastal walks and a historic ruined
chapel. The village of Northon has the Temple cafe and the popular food shack Croft 36, while
nearby Leverburgh has a community shop and primary school and also the ferry terminal to the
Isle of Uists. Tarbert has a secondary school with free transport, and the Harris sports centre
with a swimming pool and the ferry terminal to the Isle of Skye. Stornoway, about a 1.5 hours’
drive away, has Lews Castle College, University of the Highlands and Islands and a wider range of
shops and facilities along with its airport and ferry terminal to Ullapool and mainland Scotland.

The coastline is dotted with beaches ranging in size from the small to the 3 miles wide Luskentyre
and Scarista beaches, all with stunning views over clear blue seas to the neighbouring islands
of the Outer Hebrides. Walks to the beaches are along the paths and tracks that crisscross the
machair, the fertile low-lying ground along the coast which is abundant with wildflowers and
birdlife, including golden and white tailed eagles which are regularly sighted in the area.
