Leverburgh, Harris: Hotel, Guest House, Bed & Breakfast And Self Catering Accommodation

Nisabost Beach, Isle of HarrisLeverburgh is the second largest settlement, after Tarbert, on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides (or Western Isles) of Scotland. Situated on South Harris, the village is superbly placed to serve as a base for a Harris vacation enjoying the multitude of stunning beaches and spectacular scenery all within a short driving distance. Driving along the Harris roads you will notice many lovely coves that are well worth pulling over to enjoy all the more, however, such sights are so common that it can take a considerable amount of time to get across this most wonderful island. If you want to explore more of the Hebrides then Leverburgh is where to catch the ferry over to the Uists.

Seilabost Beach HarrisAs you can see from the small selection of photographs on this page the Isle of Harris has some of the finest beaches in the United Kingdom and, better still, you can often enjoy these unique spaces all to yourself (excluding the sheep and other wildlife). Behind the golden and silver sands lies a special type of land called Machair. Machair is an area of grassland which is continuously fed with a dressing of richly fertile sand and this creates the ideal habitat for numerous wildflowers to flourish, including some very rare species. Wandering through the grass you will notice gorgeous orchids amongst a multitude of tiny flowers. Sadly, though cute, rabbits undermine the ground so it is important to take care where you step.

A beach on the Isle of HarrisDotted around Leverburgh, and across Harris and the Hebrides, you will notice numerous ruined buildings. Some are genuine prehistoric sites, some ancient and important buildings while most are derelict black houses which were vacated during the time of the clearances and when the family was able to build a more modern building. Often these buildings were converted for use by livestock but, sadly, most are little more than low lying walls. Accommodation in Leverburgh is typical of the islands, that is very high quality with an extremely friendly atmosphere.
