Blacksheep House Open Plan

Blacksheep House is situated on the south coast of South Harris just off Strond, with its stunning views across the Sound of Harris to The Uists. The village of Leverburgh is only a mile away and has a well stocked general shop and restaurant.

Just a few metres from the shore the house offers exceptional views through huge semi-circle of window; to the west towards Leverburgh and Northton Hill and to the east towards Skye and the Cullins. Also Roineabhal, the highest peak in South Harris, can be seen to the back of the house.

Holiday all year round

All year round you are guaranteed a relaxing holiday.  Take in the wild nature of the Hebridean island either by simply sitting and relaxing in front of the breathtaking views, looking out for otters and eagles whilst the ebb and flow of the tide relaxes your soul. Or venture out into the spectacular countryside on foot and experience the every changing sounds and smells of this gem of an island.




“An architectural wonder, an eco-chic hideaway, a ‘blackhouse’ with 180-degree views of sea and shore.”
