This wee cottage exceeded all of our expectations - as did the weather! Just brilliant.
Peter had already been most helpful with lots of advice and tips on where to go and he was spot on. We arrived early so went exploring the nearby beaches and enjoyed the sunshine. Unfortunately the much anticipated cakes and coffee in the gallery next door were not available as it is up for sale. Never mind, there are plenty of other spots and we ended up in the Temple Cafe at Northton and consequently booked for dinner on the Thursday! When we did get back to the cottage Effie, from over the road, had it absolutely sparkling and it immediately felt comfortable and welcoming. Everything was of good quality and the fit and finish of the cottage was excellent. We would love to return sometime - and it is not very often that we say that. PS Try the North Harbour Bistro & Cafe for dinner on Scalpay (BYOB) - 01859 540218 - yummy!!! Vegetarians also catered for if advised beforehand. Altogether a great holiday!
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.
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!
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.
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!
