A Unique Estate in the Outer Hebrides

In one of Europe’s last great wildernesses, guests at Borve Lodge Estate can take in Scotland’s most spectacular shoreline in all its natural splendour. There are miles of crystal clear ocean, a plethora of animals, fishing spots, and hiking trails on Harris. You may even take a trip to Taransay, a beautiful island owned by Borve Lodge Estate.

Our award-winning self catering properties combine the raw natural beauty of the Isle of Harris with unique modern elegance. 

This is the ideal location for a romantic and sumptuous holiday, with views of Taransay, hills in the north of the island, and an archipelago of islands in the Sound of Harris. Take in the breathtaking panoramic vistas of the Atlantic Ocean slamming upon some of the region’s numerous gorgeous beaches such as Luskentyre, Seilebost, and Horgabost.

Our five-star luxury accommodation (The Broch and The Rock House) provides remote and quiet accommodation that is completely private.  Set in the picturesque secluded village of Borve on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides, providing the ultimate Hebridean escape.

Borve Lodge Estate, which offers exquisite self-catering cottages on the lovely Isle of Harris, will greet you with a warm welcome.

Scotland's Greatest Escapes

BBC programme Scotland’s Greatest Escapes takes viewers on a captivating journey to the Isle of Harris, where the spotlight shines on The Broch, nestled within the Borve Lodge Estate. This architectural marvel, a three-storey drystone building crowned with a turf roof, draws inspiration from the ancient Iron Age structures that once dotted the Scottish coastline.

Cathra and Adam, the visionary owners of the estate since 2008, dedicated three years to meticulously crafting The Broch, blending historical inspiration with modern luxury. Their passion for Scottish heritage doesn’t stop there; they also own Taransay, the UK’s largest uninhabited island, adding to their legacy of preserving and celebrating Scotland’s natural beauty and history.

Not one of our usual posts, but we are sending out a call for help in finding ‘Spotty’, who absconded from our cottage at Laxdale (Harris), yesterday afternoon. She has clearly decided to have herself a very grand Hebridean Adventure. She is microchipped and friendly, but may be a little disoriented and cautious. Should anyone spot Spotty around the Laxdale or Fincastle area, or even further afield, can you please contact 07810 023255. We are hoping to find her safe and well very soon so we can return her safely home. Thank you. Please share. ... See MoreSee Less

Well, it's been a month since we were named as 'Scotland's Greatest Escape' with the Broch and now we've had a chance to get our breath back, we thought it was a good time to say a huge 'Thank you' to everyone who sent cards and their congratulations to us. We celebrated last week with a team outing to the Isle of Harris Brewery who gave us all a very warm welcome and where we enjoyed a fabulous meal. We must also extend our thanks and give a shout out to the people and businesses who regularly supply and support us here at Borve Lodge Estate, as their help and services are invaluable and so much appreciated.
