Mary's Cottages are regarded as one of the top honeymoon locations. The cottages combine the traditional charm of 'black house' dwelling with modern comforts to ensure a wonderful stay on the Isle of Skye.
The four cottages, "Tigh Phadraig", "Tigh Mairi", "Tigh Lachie", and "Tigh Seonag", each offer a taste of luxurious self-catering accomodation including a traditional veiled boxed bed (better than any four poster!), under floor heated stone floors throughout (absolutely wonderful on bare feet!), and a stove sits in the large stone fire place, prefect for watching the flickering flames & sipping at a wee dram during your romantic retreat.
A well equipped fully fitted kitchen is also installed, but if you don't fancy cooking there are many fine restaurants on the Isle of Skye, including one just a short walk away. Enjoy the perfect vacation in some of the finest thatched cottages (or 'black houses') in Scotland. The cottages have been awarded Four Stars by the Scottish Tourist Board and are available to rent throughout the year.
The cottages are situated in the secluded small fishing village of Elgol. Down at the shore there is a small harbour where local fishing boats land their catches of lobster and langoustine among others. Boat trips run from the jetty into Loch Coruisk, in the heart of the Cuillins and there is extensive scope for a variety of outdoor pursuits. Excellent restaurants such as the renowned Three Chimneys Restaurant are to be found on Skye.

Located in the renowned, but secluded small fishing and crofting village of Elgol on the Isle of Skye. The view from the jetty at the bottom of the village, looking across Loch Scavaig into Loch Coruisk and the magnificent Cuillin mountain range is arguably the finest in the country.
At the small harbour local creel and trawling boats land their catches. Other boats run trips, across Loch Scavaig to Loch Coruisk and the Cuillin Hills. The holiday cottages are perfectly situated for those looking to do some climbing or hill walking with nearby access to Blaven and the other Cuillins.
"Tha mi dachas gu bi sibh toilichte ann" - Approximate translation - "Enjoy!"
Cross the Skye Bridge and head west to Broadford onto the A87. Elgol is reached by the turning left onto the B8083 from Broadford. The journey takes approximately 30 minutes and you will find breath taking views of the montains, the sea and the Small Isles around every corner. Portree, Skye's capital is only a 45 minute drive from Elgol. You will find shops, restaurants, petrol at either Broadford or Portree and a small Post Office and shop at Elgol will mean that you will not need to worry about supplies. There are very many restaurants on Skye catering for varied tastes. .
