Activities

Borrisdale offers an ideal location to explore south Harris and further afield – being equidistant from the stunning shell sand beaches and machair of the west and the more rugged “cnoc and lochan” landscape of the Bays.

If you’re in the mood for a car free day, the accommodation is an ideal base for walking. If you’re feeling energised, an ascent of Roineabhal, via Rodel, is rewarded with stunning views. Exploring Renish Point is also recommended – with its numerous coves and cliffs and views over to Skye and Wester Ross.

Nearby Rodel is the site of St Clement’s Church, housing the bas-relief adorned tomb of Alasdair Crotach MacLeod. Equally intriguing is the more recent archaeology making up the remains of the WWII radar installation – underground shelters and rusting machinery amongst the flag iris and monbrecia.

Harris hosts an annual Mountain Festival in September, with guided walks and lectures and the famous 5 Peaks Challenge.

Port Eisgein and Renish Point offer excellent rock fishing for the experienced angler and novice alike. We have caught lythe (pollock) approaching 10lb – literally from the bottom of the croft, 50 yards from the house (great in a curry!).

Mackerel are abundant in the summer months and are fantastic eaten freshly grilled.

Sea and game fishing (trout, sea trout, salmon) can be arranged locally.

We are always happy to assist in planning your itinerary and in making recommendations, reservations or any other arrangements in advance.
