“The Year’s Most Romantic Designer Retreat” – Sunday Times
West Harris is a playground for the adventurous, and there is a myriad of activities for those who enjoy the outdoors. There is plenty to do on the Estate, and in the environs of this coastal wonderland. In any season, the elements are intense, and there is a matching range of activities to allow one to get the most from a trip to Harris.
Salmon and sea trout fishing, wild brown trout fishing, red deer stalking, walked-up grouse and snipe shooting, clay shooting, walking, sea fishing, and bird watching are all available on the estate.
Lobster potting and mackerel fishing is available from the estate boat!
Stalking takes place on the Island of Taransay which is part of Borve Lodge Estate. You are taken over by rib – only a 4 minute trip. The island is one of the most pristine locations in the Outer Hebrides, with stunning talcum-sand beaches, rolling machair meadows, gargantuan rocks and various archaeological sites. Taransay became famous following the BBC TV series, Castaway, which was filmed there in 2000 with Ben Fogle.
Please note that dogs are not allowed in the lodge. A couple of well behaved dogs are allowed by prior arrangement to sleep in the conservatory at the rear of the lodge. It is preferred dogs sleep in cars. There are kennels available but not close to the house.
This remote and beautiful estate on the Isle of Harris offers guests breathtaking scenery, very comfortable accommodation, superb sporting opportunities and a variety of activities.
It was another stupendously good trip organised by you. Thank you again so much. Taransay is breathtaking (though easier on the pins than the steep slopes of Gaick), the lodge and setting amazing. Steve was brilliant – competent and liked by all. Rupa v good. I can’t give you credit for the non-stop sun though. Pouring down in London, by contrast! You have done brilliantly on three occasions now, precisely what I was after each time. Thanks.

Fishing Fishing for salmon, sea trout on Loch Fincastle which has two boats. Sea pools nearby which are fishable from the bank. Salmon fishing on Loch Laxdale – apparently the smallest natural salmon loch in the world! This loch has a boat which is essential for covering the best lies. The record salmon is 16lb 2oz and the record sea-trout is 13lb. There are other lochs on the estate providing wild brown trout and sea trout. After a few summer spates, the majority of the large sea-trout entering the Laxdale River travel further up beyond Loch Laxdale to Loch na h-Aibhne Garbh and Loch Bearasta Mor. These upper lochs provide good opportunites for targeting wild brown trout and some of these big sea-trout. One of these lochs, Loch Bearasta Mor, has a boat available. The Estate also has similar fishing available on three other minor migratory systems. The Luskentyre system, the Borve system and the Carron system, amounting to a further nine lochs offering bank fishing for wild brown trout with the chance of sea-trout later in the season.
Walked up grouse, woodcock, snipe, duck and geese also available for up to 4 guns.
Rabbit shooting is also available.
Mountain biking, kayaking, surfing, sailing, kite-surfing, bird watching.
