Having been to the outer Hebrides several times we had high expectations for this beautiful corner of the world. Lag na mara surpassed all our wildest dreams - it is superb in every way. The property itself is spotless, spacious, really well equipped, cosy but airy, private, and best of all a small gate in the corner of the well kept garden leads straight onto a golden beach with green blue water and very few people. The rabbits and deer kept us company, and a corn crake woke us up one morning! Beautiful and accessible hills lie all around with lochans galore to take your breath away. The proprietor was lovely to deal with - responsive and helpful. We were tempted to write a poor review to make sure we can go back. We have already booked for next year!!!! Worth at least 10 out of 5!!!

“Superb Hebridean retreat”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Lag Na Mara (“Hollow by the Shore”) is located in the tiny hamlet of Cliobh (Cliff) in the parish of Uig on the West coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Self catering accommodation doesn't come much better than this. The location is stunning, the house backing onto the yellow sands of Cliff Beach surrounded by rocky cragg and moorland. It is luxurious and spacious with two bedrooms (one double with en suite and one twin); a generous sized bathroom with large bath and roomy power shower enclosure; a large ridiculously well equipped kitchen with built in fridge, freezer and dishwasher; a comfortable lounge with sliding doors leading out onto a decking patio overlooking the beach; and a large dining room with picture windows that flood with natural light. There is also a utility room with washing machine and tumble drier. This warm, comfortable house is the perfect foil to the rugged and isolated terrain it occupies. There are two leather couches in the lounge to relax with Sky TV, a Blu-ray player, CD music system; even a Play Station.

This is very much a self-catering holiday. You can't nip down to the pub for a beer and basket meal because there isn't one. You're an hour drive from such facilities in Stornoway though there is the Auberge, a very highly rated (but pricey) restaurant down the road at Carnish and the Old Schoolhouse a 15 minute drive away at Lochroistean. To all extent and purpose though you're on your own here. There is a well-equipped community shop with a small café and Wi-Fi access a ten minute drive away but for anything beyond the basics, you should stock up on the way out.

If you enjoy the great outdoors and dramatic landscapes, and if you're not fazed by strong winds and the almost inevitable rain; if you'd welcome isolation (the sound of silence; no mobile signal, no Wi-Fi) and you don't mind paying a bit more for high standard accommodation; then like us you'll love Lag Na Mara. And when the sun does shine, you’ll find no finer beaches anywhere in the world.

“Excellent cottage and fabulous location”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Arrived just after the rain and the sun came out making the colours spectacular. The cottage was about 10 yards above the perfect beach (Cliff Bay). It was really comfortable and well-equipped. Never been to Lewis before and really enjoyed getting to know it - my favourite place was the amazing standing circle of stones.

I would prefer to keep Lag na Mara a secret as it is such a perfect place for a holiday so please do not tell anyone else how fantastic it is!! The house is very comfortable and well-equipped and sits in its own wee corner of paradise. I am counting the sleeps till we return!
