Isle of Harris

On the west coast of Harris, Lena and Richard MacLennan’s small guest house overlooks Borve’s golden sand beach, and has views over the sound of Taransay. Simply and unfussily done, without compromising comfort. Harris tweed blankets drape the bed in the neat, wood-floored bedrooms; fresh flowers and shelves of books bring interest to a sitting room warmed by a peat fire. A surprising touch: a sauna in which to ease tired muscles after a day exploring the island.

Hotels by the sea in Scotland: from romantic coastal retreats to luxury golf hotels

From boats bobbing on the Iona Sound to cavorting seals at Loch Gairloch, tantalising seafood at Loch Crinan to white sand beaches on Colonsay island. Hotels by the sea in Scotland offer a unique brand of magic to their visitors, rooted in history, blessed by exceptional natural surroundings, and with something other worldly about the atmosphere.

Particularly beguiling are those hotels that take that little bit of extra effort to get to. The Colonsay, on an island, for example, inhabited by 135 people as well as swarms of seals, otters and eagles, you will find a hotel that’s truly like stepping back in time. Live music fills the air in the evenings, while days are spent at innocent pursuits such as rock pooling.

For a more elegant experience, the likes of Kinloch Lodge at Sleat or Burrastow House on the wild West Coast offer extraordinarily beautiful locations, blessed with breathtaking views and a truly romantic hotel atmosphere as well. Equally, The Creggans Inn at Strachur provides a rustic style of romance and the log fires that burn at The Pierhouse at Port Appin envelope you in a warm welcome come rain or shine.

Alternatively, golfers delight in the luxury hotel that is Greywalls at Gullane, flanked by the Muirfield golf course as well as nine others close by. Meanwhile, foodies delight in Scotlands pubs with rooms, such as The Ship Inn at Elie or Applecross Inn. Or for an exceptional family holiday retreat it’s hard to beat the luxuries of Auchrannie House Hotel at Brodick with its sweeping grounds and plentiful activities.
