A Romantic Blackhouse
If you are thinking about different ways to spend the festive season, then staying on the coast of a Scottish island requires certain features. The house needs to be 'eco' and cosy, well-equipped, have wifi, be accessible, with supplies available not far away, have views and be inviting. When the attractive specifications for Grandfather's House at Northton, South Harris, are studied, it is easy to realise how the builders of the original blackhouse would now be bemused. The realistic and down-to-earth approach of those distant days contrasts with the romantic and luxurious appeal of today.
