Machair Room (Bedroom 2)

The Machair Room is a celebration of the rich grasslands and clear waters that surround the house. Bursting into flower in the summer with delicate harebells, orchids and clovers, the riot of colour outside is echoed within.

Boat Bathroom

The Boat Bathroom is a beautifully designed and utterly original space, featuring a bespoke bath surround created by a Harris boat builder. Moored on a flow of heated pebbles, and with tiling features that use shells from Scarista beach, the shower screen of this boat bath forms a sail, completing the room’s design.

A luxurious and memorable space, the Boat Bathroom celebrates the flocks of oystercatchers that are so common on Harris.

This is a space designed for you to snuggle into when you need to get some work done. A vast slab of oak forms the desk centrepiece, and colourful, original tweed furnishings make this an ideal place to pass the time when you need to be productive.

With views the envy of any office, and replete with USB adapters, a printer, satellite television and a superb Sonos surround-sound system, there’s no better place to catch up with your emails, if you really have to.

The study also has a Smart TV and is a quiet place to relax as well as to work if you have to.
