Property information

Riof Ocean Cottage is just idyllic and there is no other way that best describes it. Ideally situated in the heart of Uig, on the shore of Loch Roag, Riof Ocean Cottage is a luxurious 4 star self catering cottage which is graded M2 for disabled access. The cottage is five minutes from the beach, but seconds from the loch shore and there is plenty of space for kayaks, boats and bikes. The cottage has a built-in barbecue on which you can cook freshly caught seafood. Dine outside, overlooking the sea and enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching the eagles soar. there are otters along the shoreline but they are notoriously shy.

The interior of the cottage is beautifully presented, combining traditional with contemporary. Cosy in winter with a wood-burning stove and deep walls, the cottage is ideal throughout the year. The bathroom is suitable for a wheelchair user and there is smooth access to the cottage.

Riof Ocean Cottage is just 5 minutes from the magnificent, mile-long sandy beach at Riof and there are other excellent beaches fringing the Uig peninsula, the best known being Uig, Valtos and Cliff. The latter is ideal for surfing. Uig is a thriving township famous for white sands, turquoise seas, warm hospitality and the renowned Lewis Chessmen which were found near here. There is an excellent community shop which can provide all you need for the week.

At nearby Miavaig is the base for Sea Trek, a company offering sailings to St Kilda but also to other islands and fishing trips around the area; gear and rods can be hired. From here it is often possible to buy freshly caught seafood - returning to Riof Ocean Cottage to enjoy lobster, scallops and a glass of wine. What more could you want!

    Just returned from an excellent short break at Riof, a lovely property, warm, welcoming hosts, initial provisions are a lovely touch, and helped so much. The cottage was lovely and warm, even through a few March squalls, and was an excellent base from which to explore the Uig Peninsula with it's many beautiful beaches. A wee tip.......a trip to Maivaig (5 mins) will let you buy some hand dived scallops......delicious, or of course you can just relax and enjoy all that Riof has to offer, we saw cormorants diving, sea eagle, many ducks, turnstones are lovely wee birds to watch as are the oystercatchers. Would strongly recommend a stay at Riof.

    Riof was simply stunning, the cottage is very cosy and so well equipped and comfortable, thank you for a fabulous week and we even saw some sun! We hired bikes and a kayak through Jonny at Bike Hebrides ( book in advance) who delivers to the cottage and the children spent hours kite flying on a practically empty Reef beach - heaven.
