Lochedge With the Isle of Harris and Lewis winning worldwide acclaim as officially one of the best islands in the world, a timely opportunity has arisen to snap up one of its prized properties.

 Nestled on the edge of Loch Maraig, Lochedge enjoys uninterrupted vistas of the loch and is surrounded by rugged mountainous landscape making it an idyllic island retreat.

With each and every window offering a picture perfect view of one of the most beautiful Scottish spots – which helped Harris to make No 5 in TripAdvisor’s list of the world’s best islands, the highest of any European location –  it’s difficult to choose a favourite room at this luxurious loch side property.

Just a couple of miles from the summit of Clisham and about a mile below the main Tarbert to Stornoway road, Lochedge is easily accessible and even has a slipway at the front of the house for those who wish to arrive by boat.

Property specialists Bell Ingram are marketing the two story property which currently trades as a successful bed and breakfast, for offers in the region of £380,000.

With a thriving tourism industry thanks to the island’s beautiful scenery, rich history and diverse culture, the property would make a fantastic commercial investment but could equally make for an exceptional family or holiday home.

Stylishly finished with fixtures of the highest quality and oak fittings throughout the modern, purpose built property, has four/five generously proportioned bedrooms and is currently accredited with a prestigious Four Star Gold Award by Visit Scotland. 

Its green credentials are just as impressive with both a ground source heat pump and solar panels providing space heating and a copious supply of main pressure hot water.

Joanne Stennett from Bell Ingram said: “The recognition from TripAdvisor only serves to endorse what everyone who has visited Harris knows already, that it is a truly beautiful part of the world.

“Enjoying an envious location in an unspoilt corner, Lochedge makes an ideal base for walkers and bikers to explore both Harris and Lewis and is a treat for wildlife spotters with, eagles, otters and seals all frequent visitors to the shores of the loch.

“In addition to its energy efficiency measures, the house is well designed with spacious rooms all tastefully finished in neutral colours which enjoy unbridled amounts of natural light.

“With work due to start on the Isle of Harris Distillery later this year, the island’s already booming tourism sector is set to flourish even further making it the ideal time to invest in this unique property.

The property has two entrances, one from an inset sheltered porch, leading to the entrance hall with another which opens to the owner’s accommodation, with access to a large utility and drying room.

Well equipped, with two commercial fridges, a five ring Rangemaster double oven with matching extractor cover, high gloss units and a black granite effect work surface, the modern, spacious kitchen is sure to keep the cook of the household happy.

Although seemingly remote, Lochedge is within close proximity to the main community on Harris, Tarbert, which is home to the island’s main ferry terminal and offers a wide range of facilities including schools, a doctor’s surgery, shops and banking as well as the world famous Harris Tweed store.

A newly laid and easily maintained gravel driveway leads to the front of Lochedge and there is a large garage and workshop to the side of the property offering plenty of extra storage space.

Established 112 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices, including chartered surveyors, estate and forestry managers, architects, green energy specialists and estate agents.
