ABOUT US

 

Nestled right by the side of Loch Maaruig, at the foot of An Clisham, the highest mountain in the Outer Hebrides and immediately adjacent to the well-trodden Hebridean Way, The Fisherman’s Hut offers one or two people an escape from the everyday hassles of the modern working life.

 

The meaning of ‘An Clisham’ is not known, (It could mean ‘rocky cliff’) and the obscure origins of its name are hardly surprising as Clisham is very old indeed; it even existed long before India crashed into Asia, causing the corrugations that today we call the Himalayas.  But Maaruig' in that wonderfully practical Gaelic fashion means literally 'sea bay' and it could not be better named, sheltered from the prevailing south-westerly winds Loch Maaruig is both peaceful and spectacular.

 

It was these attractions, combined with a love for the sea, mountains and walking that drove Julia and David Phillips, the owners of The Fisherman’s Hut to change their way of life and come to Harris from south-east England.  Living in Lochedge, situated directly opposite, they are close at hand to offer any help or advice that you may need.

 

Wherever you look there is something to see, from the doorway you look directly onto the Loch as the tide ebbs and flows and even lying in bed on your comfy memory-foam mattress you have lovely views of the Harris mountains and the Loch. For those simply seeking a rest the well-appointed Fisherman’s Hut (It has a kitchenette, shower and loo) offers compact and comfortable living in a wondrous setting with convenient access to the main road to Stornoway (29 miles) and Tarbert (9 miles) or to explore the island.

 

The more adventurous visitors will find all their needs well-addressed also, the nearness of the loch enables the launching of all kinds of boats and you may well see David and Julia out on the Loch in their kayaks; paddle boarding is also an option.  You must bring your own boat or boats and space is available, albeit not under cover for storing boats for the duration of your stay.  For walkers and cyclists, the options are almost limitless, the Hebridean Way goes right by Hut and again, David and Julia who regularly walk the hills will be happy to give some pointers should you wish.  Under-cover storage is available for bicycles.

 

 

Just 30 metres from the sea, the Hut sits on its own site called, with great accuracy, Clisham View, which is located in the hamlet of Eilean Anabuich, between the relatively larger villages of Maaruig and Rhenigidale.  Entering the hut through its own front door, you will step into a surprisingly spacious living area with the double bed on your left, the kitchenette in front of you and the en-suite shower, loo and basin.  In the kitchenette you will find an oven with a two-burner hob, a fridge, kettle and kitchen sink, the living area contains a small table and two chairs – just perfect for Lochside dining.  With its memory-foam mattress the double bed is very comfortable indeed, ideal for sinking back, relaxing and enjoying the views.  The floor is of natural wood, very practical in the space available and whole atmosphere inside the Hut is made homely and welcoming with carefully selected decorations and enhancements.

 

Other than its very many natural charms there are plenty of other sights to see and things to do, fishing and golf are available nearby, Luskentyre Beach and other spectacular beaches are not far away – what is there not to enjoy?
