Thorro House and Rodel Valley Cabins are in the crofting township of Rodel on the south west coast of Harris. The property is set in a beautiful unspoilt landscape of grazing land and hills and is an ideal base from which to enjoy the area. Once the capital of Harris, Rodel is a beautiful historic village, popular for its stunning coastal landscape and historic St Clement’s Church, the spire of which can be seen from Thorro House.The island of Lewis and Harris is in the Outer Hebrides and is the largest island in Scotland. A place of diverse landscapes, fascinating history and a strong cultural heritage, the island is the ultimate get away from it all destination. 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 in wildflowers and birdlife.Nearby Leverburgh has a shop and primary school, while secondary schooling is available in Tarbert. Stornoway, about a 1.5 hours’ drive away, has a wider range of shops and facilities along with its airport and ferry terminal with further ferry routes from Leverburgh to Uist and Tarbert to the Isle of Skye.Thorro House was built by the current owners and was completed in 2005. Using a Scotframe structure, the house has been finished to a high standard with excellent levels of insulation, double glazing, engineered oak flooring and good quality fittings. The main living accommodation is on the ground floor, while the spacious first floor has a generous open plan office/games room/studio and fourth bedroom. Subject to the necessary consents, there is the potential for sub-division of the games room/office area and, with plumbing already in situ, the creation of an en suite in bedroom four.The cabins lie together within an enclosed area of approximately 0.3 acres. Named individually Roineabhal and Scrannabhal after the hills on either side of the valley, these eco-friendly cabins were constructed in 2008 and 2010 respectively. Both are very well-appointed with wood burning stoves, saunas, Jacuzzis and Bose sound systems, while Scrannabhal is pet friendly with vinyl floors in the main living areas. The cabins are well-maintained and replacement fittings and upgrading is carried out as required.Electricity is generated by small wind turbines with an agreement in place for discounted electricity for the lifetime of the turbines.
