The Old School House offers outstanding guest house accommodation in Finsbay on the Isle Of Harris. This former schoolhouse on the Western Isles offers stunning view towards Skye and is perfect for a relaxing holiday away.
This property has been fully modernised whilst retaining its original features. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and welcoming. Guests have their own entrance to the property through a large sun lounge where meals are taken. From here there is access to one downstairs bedroom with two further rooms upstairs. There is separate guest toilet in the hallway.
The accommodation available comprises of 3 twin rooms (one on the ground floor and two on the first floor). All the rooms are en suite. There is a lounge/dining room and toilet also on the ground floor. Wi-Fi is available.
The Old Schoolhouse has a large kitchen garden and greenhouse. These supply a large part of the produce used for evening meals. Locally sourced produce is used whenever possible.
The Old School House is situated in one of the many bays on the south east coast of Harris looking out towards Skye. The property is on a quiet side road by the shore of Loch Finsbay. Guests can walk straight out of the property onto the moor lands and towards the sea.
There is easy access to the port of Leverburgh (4 miles by road) where there is a ferry link to North Uist and from where private charter boats run to St. Kilda (these need to be pre booked well in advance). The area is popular for hill walking, fly fishing, cycling and ornithology. Sea otters and eagles have been seen by guests from the house. Guided walks and boat trips are easily accessible.
For those golf enthusiasts we are about 30 minutes from the Harris golf course which was described by Nick Faldo as “ an undiscovered gem”. We may be able to offer special green fee rates for those on stays over 2 days.
