Luskentyre House Bed & Breakfast
Luskentyre House is situated in the village of Luskentyre on the island of Harris with a southerly aspect across the sound of Taransay and is a 2 minute walk from Luskentyre Beach which is frequently regarded as being one of the worlds finest.
An old fishing lodge, there is a man made loch to the rear of the property with the ruins of a fish hatchery adjacent.
Luskentyre House has been a residence for over 200 years but has been extensively renovated to provide all modern comforts and facilities.
Centrally heated and double glazed with free guest WiFi in a comfortable TV Lounge for guests and an outdoor seating area with beach views, we feel that you will be delighted if you choose us as your Isle of Harris Bed and Breakfast destination.
Golf on Harris is played on one of the most scenic settings in Scotland. Scarista, on the west coast of Harris, is surely one of the world’s finest settings for the game of golf. To the west, the Atlantic breakers thunder onto sparkling white sands. To the north lie the spectacular mountains of North Harris. To the south, the hills of the Uists lie beyond Toe Head peninsula. It is a classic Links course with nine holes and an unrivalled location.
Lewis and Harris have some of the finest Salmon and Trout fishing anywhere in Scotland. The Hebrides have over 2000 fishable Lochs and a large number of rivers with access to the sea. Most Salmon catches are in the 7 to 10 lb mark and Brown trout catches are also of a good range. Species caught include sea trout, wild salmon, brown trout, Arctic char and ferox trout. The best time for fishing wild salmon is between June and September and the best conditions are when the rivers are in speight after heavy rain, or, during spring tides.
Beaches are probably the feature of Harris that impress most visitors. The colour of the water, even on a dull day, and the purity of the sand are simply stunning. The beaches range from the huge expanses of Traigh Losgaintir (Luskentyre) and Traigh Sgarastaigh (Scarista) to little sheltered coves beside the road at Na Buirgh (Borve). Behind the beaches are the machairs – green grassy plains covered in a mass of wild flowers in the summer. The wonderfully unpolluted water that surrounds our Islands lends itself to crystal clear viewing conditions ideal for scuba diving and the miles of coastline offer windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing opportunities with water temperatures on average in the summer of 13°C and in the winter 9°C
Harris Tweed is probably the best known of all the products of Lewis and Harris. The hard wearing, and now fashionable again cloth, has been woven in the homes of the islanders of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra for hundreds of years. Originally called Clo Mhor in Gaelic, meaning “the big cloth”, its potential was realised by Lady Dunmore in 1846, when she had local weavers copy the Murray tartan in Tweed. After the huge success of this venture, she improved the process and marketed the product to her friends
