      What our guests say about Seol Mara
       

      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.”

      And not forgetting Corran
       

      “We loved the house, it was the most perfect romantic gateway you can wish for. The house is exceptionally well equipped.. the view from windows in every room is stunning. It’s the best self-catering accommodation we ever stayed in.”

      “We’ve stayed in Harris several times and this house and location were up there with the best. Very well equipped and furnished house with stunning views over Luskentyre beach. Easy walk to the beach. Fully and highly recommended.”
