Lewis and Harris were named as Europe's top island desination by TripAdvisor in 2014
Luskentyre was rated in the Top 10 of the world's most beautiful beaches by Red Magazine:
'Pocketed away on the western shores of the Outer Hebrides, Luskentyre has miles of rippled, estuarine sand carrying nothing but the footprints of sea birds. The beach stretches like a bolt of watered silk between the tweedy greens and browns of North Harris and the burial island of Taransay; it's a shell-white strip of impossible beauty, mediating between the rocky landscape and an Atlantic of a rare seductive blue. There's nothing but waves until you reach America.'
Luskentyre is a haven for birdwatchers and walkers with a variety of scenery from empty beaches to rocky inlets. It overlooks the Isle of Taransay and the moonscape mountains of North Harris. It's a peaceful location for relaxing and for family holidays.
There are several lochs close by for trout and salmon fishing. For those who enjoy golf, nearby Scarista has a 9-hole golf course overlooking the sea.
The main ferry port Tarbert (10 miles north of Luskentyre) has grocery stores, Harris Tweed shops, whisky distillery, post office, bank and places to dine out. Tarbert also has a leisure centre with swimming pool, toddler pool, sauna, jacuzzi and fitness centre.
A mobile shop passes through Luskentyre 3 days a week. Other shopping facilities are available in Leverburgh (15 miles south of Luskentyre), and further facilities can be found in Stornoway (50 miles north).
You can also see weaving of Harris Tweed at various places on the islands including our neighbour Donald John Mackay.
For timetables and reservations for the car ferries, see Caledonian MacBrayne. They operate the following routes:
Car hire is available from locations in Harris and Lewis.
If you wish to do some Hebridean island hopping, then North Uist can easily be visited in a day by ferry from Harris. Or you can drive north into Lewis to discover the Callanish (Calanais) standing stones and more sandy beaches.
