This comfortably refurbished and highly commended family owned croft house has panoramic views from virtually all of it's rooms, and stunning sunsets which can be enjoyed from the comfort of the south facing sunroom across to Loch Dunvegan and the Islands of North and South Uist.

Living up to its Gaelic name, 'Tigh na Mara' (house by the sea) is situated in its own croft of 28 acres. As a family owned home, which was built as a croft house by the current owners late grandparents, Tigh na Mara affords a spacious, very comfortable base, for a family holiday or for a group of friends who simply wish for peace, quiet, and relaxation amongst some of the most stunning views of the West Highland Scottish coastline.
