More information about 5 Riof

Property information

5 Riof has been a labour of love by the present owners who, taking an unremarkable bungalow, have totally reworked and restructured the house to present a beautifully designed, cedar clad, holiday lodge on the southern shores of Loch Roag. Internally the house has been decorated tastefully and in keeping with its surroundings and location in order to maximise the benefit of the amazing views. The furnishings are all top quality and you will find luxury linens and towels for your stay. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms this is a very comfortable holiday house for 2 couples sharing or for a family of four. The kitchen will be a delight to work in being equipped to a high standard and forming part of the main open plan area. Those with a love of the great outdoors will not be disappointed and will find that the garage offers the space to store bikes and kayaks safely. Kayaking on Loch Roag is a popular activity and for those needing a more challenging sea experience, how about taking a trip to St Kilda with SeaTrek - just along the road at Miavaig harbour. Riof is approximately an hour drive from Stornoway and slightly longer to Tarbert in Harris, both Ferry Terminals from the mainland and Skye. Being this distance from both opens up day trips to Harris and to the north of Lewis. So much to see and so much to do, but we are certain the attractions of 5 Riof will be hard to leave!
