- Isle of Harris
Isle of Harris Spring 2019 From glorious sandy beaches to wild hills, there's something for us all on the beautiful Isle of Harris. Stay for up to 7 days or just for a few days - the choice is yours. Self catering accommodation available at Bayhead, Rodel. http://www.bayhead-harris.co.uk/index.html Cost of this will be in the region of £90 to £115 per person for the 7 nights. At the moment we have the main house booked (for 5 - 6 people) but if we move quickly we can also book the adjoining flat and accommodate up to 9 people. Accommodation costs must be paid up front as I am not prepared to be out of pocket if people cancel. Alternatively book your own accommodation in the Rodel / Bayhead area (B&Bs available). Ferry details at https://www.calmac.co.uk/article/2991/Harris-Uig---Tarbert. Book early if taking a vehicle (I'm advised that the Saturday ferries get very busy). Foot passengers can just turn up. Flexible itinerary, no set walks, we'll decide at the time what we want to do.
