Harlosh Wood h is a warm and welcoming hideaway situated on the far-westerly point of Skye. Take in the breathtaking spectacle of Loch Pooltiel and the distant silhouette of the Outer Hebrides from each room. The relaxed furnishings and wood burning stove make for a contemporary living space that continues outside onto the large deck. Wood h is designed to be enjoyed by a family or small group of friends. If it’s just the two of you, check out the owner’s other hideaway, Black h.

Wander and wonder

Wood h offers the ultimate viewpoint across Loch Pooltiel and the ever-evolving coastline. Spot deer, sea eagles, seals and whales from the croft, which you’ll be sharing with a flock of sheep.

Far western point

The hideaway shares this part of Skye with the famous Neist Point Lighthouse. The remote location is perfect for spotting the stars at night – you may even catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis.

A contemporary build

Inspired by traditional Scottish longhouses, the house was designed by HebHomes, sister company to Dualchas Architects. You’ll find two double rooms, a twin room and a bunk room.

Our favourites in the area

Morning, Afternoon, Evening. Journey out by day or night to experience the tranquility – and exhilaration – that Skye’s dramatic landscape bestows. Following an afternoon of fishing at Milovaig, be sure to book a table for dinner at The Three Chimneys for a local fine dining experience. Here are a handful of recommendations from the house owners, Jason & Sarah.

Evening

The night sky

Seize the chance to gaze with wonder at the night sky after dark from the house’s deck. Although we can’t always guarantee clear skies, you’re in with a good chance of witnessing an abundance of stars, the Milky Way, and when conditions allow, Aurora Borealis.

Fishing from the rocks
