The Outer Hebrides is one of Europes last wildernesses, 12 islands stretching 150 miles into the Atlantic ocean. Each Island is different, with its own rythm and landscape, broad golden sandy beaches fringed with turquoise seas, majestic mountains, cliffs and the machair, the wildflower fringes of the land.
The Hebrides is the true heartland of the Gaels and the Gaelic language, where close knit communities are friendly, safe, with a rhythm all of their own. You can experience traditional music and song in most villages, fiddle, pipes and singing all make up the ceilidh. This is a lively, vibrant and creative community who love to share their passion for life and know how to enjoy themselves.
Ceann an Loch Cottage stands on the shores of Loch Erisort in the village of Balallan, about halfway between Stornoway, the islands capital and Tarbert, the ferry port in Harris. The loch and hillsides provide the perfect habitat for a range of wildlife from otters to eagles.
