Craigriach, a tranquil haven in a beautiful location, combines traditional comfort with modern convenience. This family cottage is a pleasure to spend time in but also provides a perfect base from which to explore the area's rugged scenery, rich wildlife, outdoor activities and cultural heritage.

Craigriach is a traditional crofters cottage on a still working croft, although completely enclosed by its own garden fences and walls.It is Situated on the historic island of Scalpay ( Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed here during his flight from Culloden ) which is connected to Harris by bridge. It has glorious uninterrupted views south over the sea to the Uists and Skye while to the west are the magnificent North Harris mountains. The sea is 50 metres away from your back gate and the sunsets can be breathtaking.

We are located two miles out from Scalpay village where there is an excellent restaurant and a post office as well as various craft enterprises including the famous Scalpay Linen. We are 8 miles from Tarbert which has 3 hotels, several shops and the ferry terminal.
