    “Stunning isolated location with fab views.”

    Lovely open plan living area. Excellent kitchen facilities - all you need for self-catering. Great to have 2 bathrooms for 2 bedrooms (1 ensuite; 1 separate). Good for 2 couples or family of 4. Only one slightly negative comment if 2 couples staying is complete lack of hanging space for clothes in 2nd bedroom. For family OK as clothes can be hung in "parents" double room in huge wardrobe but for 2 couples, having to go into other bedroom to get hanging clothes isn't really convenient... ...

"Path" down to beach is uneven - fine for most people but not for anyone with any mobility issues! Would we book again? Of course!!

The property

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 excellent 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, the open coastline offers exciting sea stack negotiating! 5 Riof is approximately an hour drive from Stornoway and slightly longer to Tarbert in Harris, both are 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!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
