Cliff (Scottish Gaelic: Cliobh) is a small settlement on the Isle of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Cliff is within the parish of Uig.[1] The settlement is situated on a minor road, off the B8011.[2] The picturesque beach is unsafe for swimming. At low to mid tide holds an excellent barrelling beach break wave. Breaks up to 12 ft+ for experienced surfers and bodyboarders[2]
