Hello, we're Cliff Cottage - a charming cosy 3-bedroom Hebridean self-catering property nestled in the sleepy village of Cliff in Uig on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis, making it the perfect place to explore, with a choice of spectacular beaches nearby.     

Cliff Cottage is the perfect base for your hebridean vacation, get-away or remote working – and there is so much to explore.  Whilst this is Cliff Cottage’s first year operating, we also operate a successful property let in Stornoway and have been awarded the BOOKING.COM TRAVELLER REVIEW AWARD – winners in both 2023 and 2024, based on an Exceptional Score from our guest reviews.

Cliff Cottage is only a few minutes walk from Cliff Beach and Traigh Bhorgaidh Beach, 1.5miles from Reef Beach, and 5miles from Uig Sands (Ardroil Beach) where the Lewis Chessmen, 12th century Viking chess pieces were found (replicas can be viewed in the Uig Heritage Centre).  Cliff Beach is also a favourite of surfers, and the village is ideally located for exploring the many delights of the Isle of Lewis and its neighbouring Isle of Harris. 

The area is also a haven for wildlife.  As well as local livestock such as sheep and cattle being commonly seen throughout the district, guests may be fortunate to see majestic wild deer within the village. 

There are a wide variety of bird species within the vicinity, including eagles (Golden and White-tailed), falcons, heron, cormorant, and the cuckoo and corncrake, to name a few.  Local sightseeing and wildlife boat trips are also available, and guests may be fortunate to spot pilot whales, orcas, seals and dolphins (nearby boat trips via Uig's Seatrek Hebrides).  The abundance of nearby lochs are also a favourite for those who like to fish.

During spring, the sounds of newborn lambs is commonly heard, whilst during late summer, the nearby stunning local machair offers a carpet of flowers attracting birds and insect life, with yellow flowers dominating at first which then fade into reds, whites and blues.  In addition, the spectacular Northern Lights are also visible at certain times of the year.

The local community shop (4 miles away) is well stocked and features a Post Office and petrol pumps.  Nearby is the Uig Sands Restaurant, which is one of only 8 restaurants in Scotland to have been awarded Tripadvisor ‘Best of the best’, and has also been ranked among the best 1% in the WORLD.  Local cafes, Uig Community Café and The Edge Café, both serve lunches, tea, coffee and cakes.  You may also wish to visit the Uig Museum, and the Abhainn Dearg Distillery, the small local whisky distillery.

The area is described by many as having a 'special feeling' to it.  So why not visit and live life in a different, slower pace, and relax, take a well earned break, and breathe in our fresh Atlantic coast air.


Recently renovated, Cliff Cottage was originally built in 1933 and offers a fusion of new and old, retaining aspects of previous generational charm with modern daily living.

On arrival, our guests are provided with a small welcome pack to help get started. We also provide all the basics to help make our guests stay as comfortable as possible, including superfast WiFi - and we even include an emergency care pack, for those unexpected issues or forgotten items.

This property is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with severe mobility issues due to steep gradients and steps. 

Whilst there is a daily bus service (excluding Sunday) from Uig to Stornoway town centre, due to our rural location, guests are advised to have their own vehicle transport to get around (no electric car charging is permitted on the property; nearest electric charging point 4.5 miles away).

There is a further locked private bedroom on the first floor (family use only), to the rear of the third bedroom, but guests are assured it does not interfere in any way to the guest accommodation.

The property is located on a working croft with uneven and rocky terrain and appropriate fencing for local wildstock (sheep and cattle) nearby. Guests are expected to keep themselves safe at all times to avoid injury; keeping a safe distance from any wildstock and be aware of any uneven terrain around the vicinity.  The property owner does not accept any liability for any guest injuries obtained during their stay.
