Eating at the Estate
Eating In ….
The Estate cottages are offered on a self-catering basis, and in each property, the kitchens are provided with all the key equipment needed to do most home cooking. Depending on season and activity, the Estate can provide fresh vegetables and venison, and it is our intention that guests eat well during their time on Harris. The main Borve Lodge can be booked on a fully catered basis with chef, houskeeping and host services.
We are well-served by general stores at Leverburgh, which is about 10 minutes drive away, and Tarbert, just 20 minutes north. Larger supermarkets (Tesco and Co-op) are based in Stornoway. Note that all stores are closed on Sunday.
Harris has a scattering of restaurants and coffee shops to choose from. We do recommend that you book during summer for the more formal destinations, as these establishments are very well-subscribed
