“Fantastic ”
Reviewed April 7, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have just returned from spending a week in this beautiful house. Location was excellent and our girls enjoyed the direct access to such a lovely beach. The house was well equipped with everything we needed and more! We enjoyed the tranquility and would highly recommend it to family and friends. It was the first time we have been to Lewis and won't be the last. Thank you Marlene , we will be back!

Lag na Mara on the Isle of Lewis is in a breathtakingly beautiful setting, Granite cliffs with waterfalls and beautiful sandy beach. The house itself was lovely, well laid out kitchen with everything you need to self cater. large rooms with comfortable beds and furniture and the whole house was exceptionally clean. The host Marlene was very friendly and helpful with local attractions and information. We had a fantastic stay.

“Perfect mini adventure”
Reviewed October 23, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had the most amazing week in Lag Na Mara, could not have been more perfect. If you want to get away from it all there us no better place.the house itself is more than you would expect from a holiday home,warm, cosy, well equipped, spacious and the most stunning view's. We are lucky enough to have seen many beautiful beaches around the world but this is now my favorite. Heaven in a nutshell. Thank you and we will be back. Best holiday ever. Marlene is wonderful! X

“Perfect holiday home!”
Reviewed October 19, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We have never been to Scotland before, so decided to go as far as we could.
Choosing the Isle of Lewis turned out to be a good choice and picking Marlene and Fraser's lovely holiday home was a brilliant choice...Sometimes when you arrive, a place isn't as good as what you expect it to be, but Lag Na Mara is even better then we expected. Fabulous cottage ...in a beautiful spot with a gate in the garden leading down to a stunning beach....we had lovely weather. We knew it would be quite isolated, so we stocked up with groceries in Tesco Stornoway, and ate in every night using the fabulous kitchen...after walking up mountains....along windy beaches , and cycling here there and everywhere...we loved chilling out at the end of the day in the house. Constantly looking through binoculars through the many big windows!!!! We also did an online Tesco shop! We went to the local church on the Sunday morning...which was a lovely service, and with very friendly people.
Marlene is a lovely person...very friendly and welcoming, and she even let me go out riding with her...along a lovely white sandy beach...so that was a real bonus...Gary had a nice chat with Fraser while we were out.We drove down to Harris...which is lovely, but Lewis is even better.
All in all.... a brilliant holiday... Also the scallops from the seatreck
Place were scrumptious...a quick fry in butter..done.....best fast food ever!!!!
Thanks very much Marlene......A very special place .

“Exceptional self-catering in idyllic location on Lewis.”
Reviewed April 3, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just spent a wonderful,week at Lag Na Mara. couldn't have been better. We had everything we needed for home from home. This is really important on Lewis as the weather's unpredictable and you need a good base where you can cook and feel at home. This little cottage Is really exceptional. Immaculate and very well equipped there is everything you can possibly need to have a great stay. Huge thanks to Marlene for making sure everything was so perfect. We would recommend whole-heartedly to anyone who wants to explore this very special, remote part of the UK. A real gem.

“Unspoilt, peaceful and stunning”

Lag Na Mara is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful area. The cottage itself is incredibly well equipped. It is inviting and friendly, cosy and tastefully furnished. It cannot be faulted. The area itself is possibly one of the best areas on Lewis to visit. We were lucky enough to have a small archaeological dig going on behind the house which was fascinating. A short drive towards Uig and we saw Golden Eagles and another drive located Sea Eagles on Harris.
I am loath to say stay at Lag Na Mara simply because I love the tranquility it offers and want to book it again myself, but honestly, contact Marlene and book yourself a holiday there, you won't regret it.

This property gives everything it promises and more. We can only agree with every positive comment in previous reviews. This was our third visit to Lewis, and this was the best property yet.
We didn't eat out as we had our resident chefs with us, but had favourable reports from those who did eat out.
We greatly enjoyed our trip out with Seatrek, and would recommend this, check their trips to choose the right one for you. Also adjacent to Seatrek is the scallop shack, selling delicious fresh scallops, and free shells to bring home.
Everyone locally is so friendly and on one day out to Callanish stones and beyond we spent most of the time talking to people, at Herbridean Soap, The Blue Pig,Norman Mackenzie at Carloway Harris Tweeds, etc etc.
The property setting was great in all weathers, watching the gales form crashing waves, the rain squalls coming down the valley and out to sea, and relaxing on the beach or on the decking in blazing sunshine. We can fully understand why people chose this property for their wedding.
We would certainly recommend Lag Na Mara and look forward to returning.
