What Other People Think

We want our guests to love the place, whatever the occasion, whatever they do, whatever the weather. We believe we've provided everything you could possibly need during your stay. We know the location of the cottage will take your breath away. Don't just take our word for it:


"Seol Mara is the most comfortable, well-equipped and beautifully-located cottage we have ever rented for a holiday. We spent a week here in March and wish we had arranged to stay for a fortnight. The location is incomparable. You can walk out of the back door, across the back lawn and straight down onto Seilebost beach. The walk out towards the ocean with the ever expanding view across to Luskentyre and the Harris mountains is stunning."

"Lovely property with absolutely everything you could need for a wonderful stay. Right next to the beach, great views, every possible facility. Fab location on Harris, great for walking. Very well furnished, peaceful, large garden. The owners are easily contactable and ready to help or advise on anything, really friendly."
