NB: This is googles most up-to-date satellite image. Since it was taken, new properties have been built which have in no way impacted or disturbed any of our guests, many who have been returning over the last decade to stay each year in Tigh na Mara.
There are some great places to visit and things to do nearby!
Close by Tigh na Mara is a local potter and pottery, and Shilasdair, the Skye
yarn company. Skye Skyns a family-run sheepskin business established in 1983, and the Skye Cottage
Museum where several original crofts have been restored. Fifteen miles away is the dramatic Dunvegan Castle, one of the oldest inhabited castles in Scotland, which is set amongst beautiful gardens on the edge of Loch Dunvegan. From here you can enjoy a boat trip out to the local seal breeding colonies along the coast.
“Dunvegan Castle is a castle a mile and a half to the North of Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, situated off the west coast of Scotland. It is the seat of the MacLeod of MacLeod, chief of the Clan MacLeod. Dunvegan Castle is the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland and has been the stronghold of the chiefs of the clan for nearly 800 years.”
If you drive to the east side of Loch Snizort (33 miles) you will find Monkstadt, where Flora Macdonald brought Bonnie Prince Charlie to safety in 1746. Skye has many fishing and crofting villages, townships, ancient ruins and standing stones to explore. To the south of the island are the scenic and dramatic Cuillin Hills
that dominate the skyline amongst breathtaking scenery. The mountains give plenty of scope for walkers and climbers with 15 Munro’s, (mountains higher than 3,000 ft) to carefully walk.
“The Cuillin (Scottish Gaelic: An Cuilthionn or An Cuiltheann) are a range of rocky mountains located on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. The true Cuillin are also known as the Black Cuillin to distinguish them from the Red Hills (Am Binnean Dearg) across Glen Sligachan. The Red Hills are lower and, being less rocky, have fewer scrambles or climbs.”
