Tigh (meaning house or home) Mairi was originally a croft dwelling house, then a hay barn in the 1800s, named after the daughter of Andrew and Mary Sim who combined both modern and traditional when rebuilding the cottages. Cross a stone bridge over the stream separating Tigh Mairi from the other three cottages on the croft to reach this perfect self-catering accommodation.

Views to the front take in the Strathaird peninsula across to Glasnakille and beyond to Sleat and the Isle of Rum.

Sleeping four people with a traditional veiled boxed king size bed downstairs and a gallery room with two single beds upstairs (accessed via a foldaway ladder). Travel cot available.

Tigh Mairi has all the comforts you need whether you want a base for exploring the beautiful Skye wilderness, dark skies, or a tranquil retreat to relax and recharge.

We are dog-owners ourselves, so are genuinely pet-friendly, can give you suggestions for dog-friendly walks of various lengths, and welcome up to two well-behaved dogs, by prior arrangement. The area around the cottages is enclosed by fencing.
