This traditional croft house on our family croft on Skye is set in a stunning location overlooking the Sound of Raasay. Conveniently just 5 miles south of Portree, the cottage is within easy walking distance of beaches.
Taigh Mairi is perfect for touring Skye, watching wildlife or simply relaxing. It is fully equipped and refurbished to a very high standard. Taigh Mairi (Mary’s House) was our family home for generations, and it was last lived in by a beloved Aunt. After we inherited the house, we fully refurbished it to a very high standard including polished hard wood flooring throughout. There are works by local craftsmen, artists and painters.
Just 6 miles from Portree, Taigh Mairi is an excellent base for exploring the island. Wildlife lovers are often lucky to see dolphins leaping in the bay only yards from the house. Birdwatchers will also be kept busy – the sea eagle is not infrequently seen from the croft.
Skye is of course, a very popular tourist destination with many world-class sites. These range from the spectacular Cuillin mountains to the more relaxing atmosphere of several famous restaurants. Boat trips, adventure centres, gardens, castles and other historical monuments are numerous. See our Isle of Skye page for details.
