About Neil and Rhoda

The cottages have been built on Rhoda’s family croft by Scarista Beach, which is now into the third generation of the same family. Neil was born and brought up on a croft on the Isle of Skye. When Neil sold his business, the couple embarked on building the first five-star self-catering accommodation on Lewis & Harris, and haven’t looked back since. The couple live with their two children in a house near the cottages, meaning they can be on hand quickly to help with any issues. Their aim is to ensure all guests enjoy a memorable and world-class experience. Many come to Harris to practice their Gaelic, and native speaker Rhoda is happy to oblige.

Why holiday on the Isle of Harris?

Peace. Tranquility. Beauty. Relaxation. Seclusion. All of these bring people to the breathtaking Isle of Harris. There is so much to see and do. This Scottish island sits in the Outer Hebrides, making it the perfect escape from everyday busy lives in the city. Our self-catering accommodation means you can make up your own schedule for the day without needing to rush or stress. And whilst each cottage has fibre broadband, there’s sometimes no better entertainment at night than sitting back and watching for shooting stars or the northern lights in Scotland in the pitch black night sky or enjoying the sun until nearly midnight in summer.

Accessibility at Blue Reef Cottages

We want to ensure that all guests are catered for here. That’s why both our cottages have been built to provide category 3 assisted wheelchair access for residents. Additionally, please note that there is no smoking allowed anywhere on the premises. Furthermore, for the comfort of guests with allergies, we don’t allow pets to stay in the cottages.
