“Cosy cottage in spectacular location”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Seol Mara is a comfortable, well-equipped cottage on the edge of the spectacular Luskentyre sands, ideal for couple or family (double bed plus bunks for two and single bed). Great view from kitchen over beach and also feels secluded. Cosy central heating and excellent wood-burning stove. Satellite TV and Xbox, with broadband on the way! Good selection of books including local guides and maps. Highly recommended for year-round stays. And owner Peter couldn't have been more responsive or helpful. We would love to return!

Just back from a fantastic week here. Seol Mara is a beautiful cottage in a breath-taking location. Lots to see in the local area, or just sit out back and watch the tide come in at the edge of the garden. Great service from the owners from the point of booking through to the end of our stay, couldn't ask for more! Harris is beautiful, and Seol Mara is ideally located for all the amazing beaches it has to offer, oh and look up towards the most stars I've ever seen!

“Cosy Cottage with Outstanding views”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for a week in this beautifully renovated crofters cottage. the cottage itself stands in its own grounds with outstanding views across the bay and gave us many opportunities to sit outside and view the wide variety of birds and wildlife.
Inside, the cottage is beautifully furnished and very well equipped, dish washer, washer/dryer, coffee pod machine and Beautiful Emma Bridgwater and Denby crockery. Coming back after a days walking felt like coming home and the views from the kitchen window are amazing.

As we stayed in the summer, we didn't need heating but did use the log burner on a couple of the cooler evenings. If you were staying in the cooler months this house would be lovely and cosy! There is a large flat screen tv with dvd player and games console and plenty of books for rainy days/evenings.

Communication with the owners was easy and friendly and they responded very quickly to any questions we had.

I would highly recommend this beautiful cottage on the wonderful Isle of Harris. We had an unforgettable holiday and are already planning when to visit again!
