Sandy Bay Croft

Description

Glamping on the Hebridean Isle of Harris is a truly stunning experience. With turquoise seas all around and gleaming white sand along the world-renowned beaches, there is nowhere better to escape to for ultimate relaxation.

You’ll find Na Bothain Sandy Bay Croft Wigwams® along the A859 Tarbert-Leverburgh route on the west coast of the Isle of Harris. Two pretty wooden glamping cabins sit on the edge of this traditional working croft. Both of the Wigwam® cabins are kitted out with everything you need for a luxury glamping experience. Foam mattresses and blackout curtains make for a great night’s sleep and there are heating and electricity throughout. The cabins both come with en-suite bathroom and washing facilities, a fitted kitchenette and a dining table and chairs. It’s a real home away from home!

When you open your double-glazed patio doors, you’ll be in awe of the panoramic views across the stunning, white sandy bay and out to sea. Take your breakfast out to your own private dining area and marvel at the ever-changing view. We can’t think of a better spot to enjoy a leisurely breakfast! 

If you can tear yourself away from the view, there’s plenty to do around the croft to ease yourself gently into your glamping adventure. The croft hosts seasonal activities for visitors, and depending on the time of year you can roll up your sleeves and have a go at feeding the lambs or shearing the sheep. It’s a busy croft, so there’s always something to do. 

To get acquainted with the surrounding area, borrow scavenger hunt cards for the croft or the seashore and go on an adventure spotting the local flowers and wildlife - it’s the perfect activity to do with the kids! The cabins are perched by a secluded cove, and it’s the perfect spot for a picnic or for lying back and watching the eagles soaring up above. 

And on days when you feel like exploring further destinations, there’s a world of wonder waiting for you. Hop on a boat and head out to St. Kilda - a World Heritage Site with stunning wildlife and views. 

Cyclists will find much to see along the Hebridean Cycle Way, and if you’re out for a drive, pay a visit to the small islet of Scalpay which has a truly wonderful bistro - and views that are out of this world. For more ideas on things to do and see, head to the little town of Tarbert where you’ll find a friendly and vastly knowledgable Tourist Information Centre. 

The shifting light and changing weather of Harris make it a beautiful glamping destination at any time of the year, and staying in a warm and snug Wigwam® cabin means you can enjoy a glamping break on Harris the whole year through.  

The nature on the Isle of Harris is truly magical, with wildflowers blooming across the whole island and over 1000 types identified each year! In colder months when the sun is low, the sky displays its own wild blooms with rich sunsets transforming the colour of the beaches and seas around. And if you are especially lucky, when the sun dips and the day turns to night, you might catch one of the greatest shows on Earth: the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights.
