Isle of Harris Distillery
The Isle of Harris Distillery is situated in the centre of Tarbert. Drop in for a tour of the distillery and maybe buy a bottle of the much lauded 'Harris Gin'. At the heart of the distillery sits a peat burning fire bringing you the cosy, welcoming atmosphere of a traditional island home.
There are a varied selection of quality gifts for purchase. Entry to the distillery is free with distillery tours costing £15 per adult. Please contact the distillery directly on 01859 502212 or send an email to email@example.com for further information or to book onto a tour.
St Clements Church
St Clement’s Church has been praised as ‘the grandest medieval building in the Western Isles’, and it’s easy to see why. The church is always open and entry is free. Wander through the atmospheric rooms and take in the history of centuries gone by.
Many weddings are still held in this enigmatic building and it is well worth a visit.
