The family-owned Borve Lodge is a true island retreat perfect for guests looking for something a little bit different. Set in a quiet corner of the rugged and wild Isle of Harris, Borve Lodge offers dramatic scenery, locally sourced food and an abundance of peace and quiet.
Originally built in 1868 as a sporting and fishing lodge by the Earl of Dunmore on the site of a Bronze Age fortress, this gorgeous white house is now the ideal base for outdoor activities. The Lodge has recently benefited from massive refurbishments by the new owners of the estate, creating a perfect blend of contemporary luxury and historic charm. Guests have a plethora of hiking options, ranging from gentle coastal walks along pristine sandy beaches to rugged mountain ascents for breathtaking views. You could also explore the estate and surrounding area by bike and via various water sports like surfing, sailing and sea kayaking.
The lodge sleeps 8 and is comfortably and stylishly furnished. Guests can enjoy the house’s exquisite round walled garden, which is perfect for evening strolls. The estate also features several beautiful self-catering properties which could extend the party size if required. These additional properties include a contemporary and classy broch inspired by the unique Scottish Iron Age forts, likely the first broch built in over a thousand years, a stylised rock house built to blend seamlessly into the landscape, as well as several cosy cottages emitting rustic luxury.
The uninhabited island of Taransay is the most recent addition to the Borve Lodge Estate. Guests can take a private boat to this quiet island to explore its pristine white sand beaches, idyllic views and wildflower meadows. Taransay is ideal for wildlife watching as it is home to over 200 red deer as well as sea eagles and even a seal colony.
