Bike and Kayak Hire.
From an afternoon exploring the ancient Callanish stones to an exciting trail ride through the Harris hills, being on a bike is a great way of enjoying the islands. We now have a small fleet of sit-top Kayaks, so once you're done playing on terrafirma why not take to the seas to explore our magnificent coastline, who knows what you might find.

Flavour is a concept that my partner and I designed whilst traveling around the world. It began relaxing on the beaches of Australia and continued while sipping tea in the tea fields of India, drinking fresh coconuts in Thailand and watching sunsets in Colombia. Flavour combines a love of food from countries all over the world. We spent the last 4 years on the road travelling to more than 30 countries dreaming of living permanently by the beach. Never in our wildest dreams did we believe that we would be lucky enough to find our perfect settling place in our home country of Scotland. However, we stumbled across the breath-taking Isle of Harris. We instantly decided to set up home here and the idea of Flavour was born.
