    Our lovely cottage is right next to the sea in Brevig Bay, where you can spot otters, seals and a variety of birds including a pair of golden eagles. Enjoy breakfast watching a stunning sunrise, or a BBQ as the sun sets over this beautiful bay. Swim off the rocks, or launch a boat or kayak from the jetty in the bay.
    This cosy cottage has an open fire and window seat in the vaulted lounge, which overlooks the bay, and radiators throughout the house. Very well equipped, there are three bedrooms , a dining area, utility, bathroom and shower room. Outside there is space to BBQ plus a seating area. A gate leads directly onto the peninsula where there are numerous walks. Car parking is available approximately 50 metres from the cottage.

    The island is ideal for walking, cycling, bird watching and beachcombing. There are numerous beautiful beaches including Seal Bay where there are often more seals than humans to be seen! Try kayaking in Castlebay, visit local uninhabited islands such as Mingulay to see the puffins, or take the boat to the castle in the bay.
    You might like to buy fresh fish which lands daily on the island, eat on The Deck, or go for a curry at the excellent Cafe Kisimul on the harbour. The bus, which takes you around the island is a two minute walk from the house.

    1. L.Endley House by the Sea

      What a wonderful well equipped, comfortable cottage with stunning views. Rain or shine the surrounding views did not disappoint. What a beautiful island. A hidden treasure.

    2. Wendy Macleod House by the Sea

      We have just returned home after a wonderful week staying at House by the sea! The cottage is really well equipped and deceptively spacious! When we weren’t out exploring Barra and it’s beauty we spent time relaxing in the large, bright and airy living room. We’d light the fire in the evening and spend time enjoying the views from the window seat. This cottage is dog friendly too which meant the whole family had a great time! The whole family spent an unforgettable week here and we will definitely return.

    3. kim and lee bousfield House by the Sea

      We stayed here September 19-23rd and it was a lovely short break, picturesque location, good facilities and a great base to explore or just simply relax

    4. Donna House by the Sea

      What a beautiful cottage in an absolutely stunning location. We stayed for 1 week in July with 2 young kids and it was perfect. Situated right on Brevig Bay it’s perfect for exploring the shore, watching the seals and otters play on the rocks and even a swim if you can brave the cold water. Well loved house with so much character.

    5. Derek Antrobus House by the Sea

      A really lovely cottage which accommodated three couples without any sense of being crammed in. Everything you needed was there and everything worked. The owner couldn’t have been more helpful. Fabulous views across the bay and an enchanting few yards’ walk through the garden to otters and seals. We managed to take a lovely photo of the cottage from across the bay – almost at theend of rainbow.Hope it uploads.

    6. Taylor family House by the Sea

      House by the Sea is in the most idyllic location right on the water and we have had the most wonderful, relaxing and fun holiday here. We saw otters and seals in the bay, swam off the rocks, visited all the islands in our boat, caught crabs and fish and had a really great holiday. The house is perfect – beautifully done up to reflect its sea location and most comfortable. A real gem on Barra!

    7. Shaun Everett House by the Sea

      We stayed here over New Year 2016/17 and had also stayed in May 2016. We almost hesitated to write this review however, as we would like it to keep it a secret!
      If you need to switch off/relax completely/get it away from it all etc-this is the place for you. It is unlike anything you will find in mainland UK.
      Try it, but don’t tell anyone else.

    8. Mary House by the Sea

      Lovely lovely cottage with spectacular views of the bay. Living room is large and comfortable with window seats to watch the seals play in the sea. House looks to have been redecorated recently which gives it a fresh clean feel unlike some holiday homes which can feel a bit dated. That being said it doesn’t feel too ‘new’; there’s a lot of character about it. The friendly owners, who intend to retire here one day, clearly love the place as much as we did, it’s so well looked after. We will return!
