  • review rating 5  We were there in the middle of August, the first time to visit the Isle of Skye, and we could not have hoped for a better place to stay. Patricia and Gordon made us feel so welcomed and attended to, so considerate and helpful and with a very personal touch. They are just lovely people, and the room is wonderful, the bed AMAZING, exceptionally clean, and the breakfast was great - and to sit and eat it with such a view is soulful pampering. It was the highlight of our memorable honeymoon.

    review rating 5  We stayed at Tigh-Na-Mara end of August. The location is perfect to visit all the north attractions of the island. The room was just perfect : really comfortable, stunning view, clean,... And what about the host ! Patricia and Gordon are wonderful welcoming people, always giving nice little attention making your stay at their place perfect. We enjoyed Skye, definitely for what the island has to offer. But Patricia and Gordon also contribued a lot to make our stay memorable. We'll definitely come again. Thanks again !!

    review rating 5  We spent 3 nights at Tigh-Na-Mara where we were made very welcome by our hosts Gordon and Patricia. The accommodation was excellent, a large comfy bed in a warm spacious room, tastefully furnished with en-suite bathroom. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided and a nice touch was the delicious chocolate brownie cake for our arrival. (We were also able to hang up any wet outdoor clothes to dry, a necessity on Skye!!) Our continental breakfast was more than sufficient:- tea/coffee, orange juice, yoghurt, cereal, toast and fresh fruit with plenty left over to make a packed lunch. We would highly recommend Tigh-Na-Mara without hesitation. Paula and Doug Young (and Bruce the Bear!)

    review rating 5  The Tigh Na Mara bnb is in the beautiful town of Staffin, with a gorgeous view of northern Skye coastlines. Gordon and Patricia were generous, thoughtful and ideal hosts - when we arrived after 8pm, exhausted after a long drive, they heated up pizza for us rather than direct us to Portree which would be the nearest town with available restaurants. The room is spacious with fantastic views of the bay, and the bnb is close to plenty of fantastic hikes and glorious cliffs and coastline including the Quiraing. I will definitely come back!
