A review of Tigh Mairi from one of our lovely guests: "Fantastic stay at Tigh Mairi. The Cottage is in a beautiful location, with amazing views over the landscape. The cottage itself was immaculate and we loved the Welcome pack , especially the thoughtfully prepared dog pack. Our hosts thought of everything! The beds were super comfy and the overall feel of the Cottage is one of comfort. Great place to relax and unwind . Lots of walks nearby and plenty of wildlife to spot . Very sad to go home. Would highly recommend booking this holiday home. It's a little gem :)"

Since it's national poetry day today, here's a little poem just for our fans. Enjoy and feel free to share.
Sometimes you need
To just get away
From the hustle and bustle
And escape from the frey
Or something romantic
May be on your mind today
But you can’t think of anything
So where should you stay?
A pretty, thatched cottage
Set right off the shore
With modern convenience
Could you really want more?
How about a host
That’s really a hoot
Who speaks quite good Gaelic
Plays the bagpipes to boot
Plan out your wedding
And your honeymoon, too
At Mary’s Thatched Cottages
A place just for you
The prices are reasonable
Give it a try
Live out your dreams
On the Isle of Skye
