Unique situation on the shore, Seol Mara is an extensively renovated traditional crofter's cottage in the small village of Seilebost, set across the bay from Luskentyre sands, frequently voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Situated on the stunning west coast of the Isle of Harris, Seol Mara is a few minutes drive from the ferry terminal. Access to the shore is from the fenced garden. The cottage has a wood burning stove, tumble drier, washing machine, Tassimo coffee maker, small worktop freezer and slow cooker. Oil fired central heating throughout.
