Traigh na Clibhe (Cliff Beach) is the best beach in Uig for surfing. Mangurstadh is definitely for experienced surfers only and Dalmore Beach on the Westside is renowned for good surf.  For the surf report and forecast see Magic Seaweed and if you would like to learn to surf click below to get in touch with Surf Lewis.  Uig Sands is a recognised kite surfing and wind surfing location, with it’s extensive sands it is the perfect location to catch the wind!

Kayaking

What better way to experience the wonder of the islands than from the water?  Adventure on the water for a day on a level with the birds and gaze down through the clear waters.  You could take a picnic over to Pabbay or reach those tempting secluded beaches.  We even have kayaks for hire here at SEAcroft.  There is also kayak hire available with Bike Hebrides.

Cycling

Cycling is a great way to explore our island.  There are cycling routes to suit all ages and abilities, and minimal traffic on many island roads, cycling on Lewis and Harris can be as leisurely or as challenging as you choose including coastal rides and ascents of the Harris Hills or dedicated mountain bike trails.

Walking

There are so many different walks to choose from including coastal routes, wildlife spotting and historic sites.  There are some waymarked routes and in Scotland you have the freedom to responsibly roam.  We have a good range of maps and walking books at SEAcroft and are happy to talk through routes and ideas.  There are also several several walking resources:  walkhighlands Lewis, walkhighlands Harris, Mapmywalk, Independent walk of the month

Fishing

There are a number of lochs locally where you can enjoy a day’s fishing for salmon, sea trout or brown trout.  We can arrange brown trout fishing for no charge.  Brown trout fishing is usually free of charge, but check with one of the Ghillies. If you would prefer salmon or sea trout fishing this has to be arranged in advance (see link below).

What Our Guests Say

Our first trip to the Hebrides couldn't have begun better. Arriving to Andrew and Sarah's outstanding hospitality was only the beginning. Wonderful conversation and details of what is like living so remote from our personal experience was followed by an amazingly special dinner.

Cheryl - USA

This was our third visit to SEAcroft B&B and yes, we like it so much we keep coming back! Sarah and Andrew made us feel so welcome again. The room, as well as the house, is nicely decorated, comfortable, warm and clean. We did not want for anything and our room was refreshed half way through our stay.

Marion & Andy - UK

Thank you Sarah & Andrew for a truly magical stay during our family history detective hunt on Lewis in April. The room, view, food & hospitality were all superb. Such a great atmosphere with your own choice of conviviality or privacy. We enjoyed the great selection of books on Lewis history.

John & Yvonne - Australia

It pains me to leave this review because I don't want other people to beat me to my next booking!  Sarah & Andrew deserve a great review for their excellent hosting, comfortable rooms and delicious food.  Our veggie breakfasts were perfectly cooked and our evening meal was superb

Ann & Nigel - UK

Loved everything about SEAcroft, starting with Sarah and Chef Andrew, the relaxing and inviting lounge, breakfast and dining room, and top of the line room accommodations.  Curtains, pillows and bed spreads of beautiful coordinating Harris Tweed fabric.  Selections and preparations are gourmet and elegant.

Louis - USA

This was one of the nicest holidays we have ever had.  The welcome was very warm and the service exceeded our expectations.  The room was nice and clean, and the dinner was outstandingly good.  We did not expect such quality located at 'the end of the world'.

Ekkehard & Susanne - Germany

Room was wonderfully clean, beautifully decorated and had a superb view!  We had dinner the first night and breakfast both mornings, everything was cooked to perfection.  We had our spaniel with us and even she was provided with a breakfast treat.  Sarah was a wonderful host and we will recommend to friends and family.

Rhod, Wendy & Ellis - UK

I fell in love with Harris & Lewis, and this B&B was part of the experience.  Sarah was an incredibly nice and warm host, very helpful, keen on sharing her love and knowledge of the area, funny and charming.  Her husband cooks delicious meals and breakfasts!  The location is perfect, Uig Bay is (according to me) the most beautiful part of the island.

Muriel & Antonin - France

We happened upon the SEAcroft B&B.  We were absolutely delighted by the way we were received.  A friendly, warm welcome.  Sarah is a marvellous host and Andrews is a terrific chef.  Food and preparation was exquisite.  Hospitality?  Real.  There's a multitude of outdoor activities available... it's worth the time to stay awhile.
