Wonderfully comfortable cottage in an ideal location, short drive from Tarbert but isolated enough to enjoy uninterrupted scenery. Lovely wood burning fireplace. Peter very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a great stay (10/10) would highly recommend.

“Fantastic cottage and superb views”
Reviewed March 28, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Seol Mara. The location is fantastic with views towards Luskentyre and Taransay - the picnic table in the garden was a great spot to admire the scenery. We found the cottage very welcoming and a home away from home - it was cosy with a great shower, good heating and a fab wood burning stove. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook tasty dinners and everything was spotlessly clean. We couldn't have asked for more! Even the weather was kind to us :) Thank you very much for a wonderful time!

“Lovely cottage ”
Reviewed October 24, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This house was just the in the perfect place for us on our trip of the Outer Hebrides.

The house itself was great, fully equipped with all things we could have needed, a fab comfy bed and great shower needed after a long day of hill walking!

It is ideally situated right beside the most beautiful beach, and not a far drive from shopping/ dining facilities.

The owner Peter was very helpful, and only a text or email away if we needed anything.

All in all I would recommend this place, and have done so! A very homely cottage. Thank you for a lovely stay.

“Cosy cottage in spectacular location”
Reviewed October 18, 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 September 6, 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!
