  • “Location was peaceful & quiet on a single track road.”

    We found the house had a musty smell every time we returned. There was a stronger smell in the main bedroom. Lighting candles helped a little. Biggest complaint is that our clothes smelled musty once we returned home. They had only been hanging in the wardrobes for a week. We overcame the brown water situation by buying & using bottled water for drinking. We feel people should be aware of these issues before booking.

The property

Portree 12.5 miles.

Set in a luscious crofting glen on the Isle of Skye, close to Loch Mor and with easy access to the main road, taking you to the harbour town of Portree, is this lovely bungalow.

Maramor offers just the break for you, with opportunities to explore a wonderful part of The Hebrides.

Bring your family or friends along to share a memorable holiday together, where you can spend your down time in the sitting room by the warmth of the fire on a cool winter's night.

The well-appointed kitchen is ideal for cooking up a home-made meal and getting everyone together around the dining table as you enjoy a bottle of wine and exchange stories from times gone by.

Set all on ground floor level, you can easily access the bedrooms after a tiresome day uncovering the hidden gems of the area.

Choose from one of two doubles, while the single is ideal for a child and the shower room is conveniently located just off from the kitchen.

The children can play on the lawn as you sip a cooling summer’s drink and watch pleasantly on by in the enclosed garden.

You are within easy reach of the village of Uig, where you can climb aboard a ferry to the outer islands and discover an enchanting part of Scotland.

There are a number of places to eat out and the nearby Fairy Glen is a fascinating place to visit, offering a whimsical walk through a beautiful valley.

The A87 road will take you on a journey down to Portree, where you can uncover a series of cultural attractions and spend a day browsing the shops or enjoying a theatre production at the Aros Centre.

There are also many outdoor activities to make the most of, such as rock climbing, sea kayaking and swimming, while the many walking trails nearby will satisfy your thirst for breath-taking landscape scenery.

The Trotternish Circuit is of particular interest, offering a hilly 50-mile circular route around the northernmost peninsula on the island, with towering cliffs, rock formations and stunning views over the sea.
