We are a short walk from the beach and the house is also just under a minutes walk to the bus stop for the main bus route through the islands.As parents of 3 young children we know what it is like taking them on holiday so Taigh Mairi has a variety of facilities including a travel cot, high chair and a selection of toys to make your stay more comfortable. I would also like to take this opportunity to tell you a wee bit about the island that I grew up on. Grimsay is a small, peaceful, beautiful island which is skirted by the main causeway carrying the road from North Uist to Benbecula. The island is renowned for the quality of the seafood caught off its shores, particularly its lobsters and I would highly recommend a visit to the harbour in Kallin. North Uist is a paradise for wildlife and beach lovers, one of the best places to visit is the Balranald Nature Reserve and my favourite beach has to be Hosta with Baleshare a close second. Whilst travelling around North Uist there are many interesting sites nearby, such as Barpa Langais, Teampall Na Trionaid and the very picturesque Scolpaig Tower. I look forward to welcoming you soon.More

Perfect house for our needs- three generations of one family. Very well equipped. Short drive to riding stables and many local eating spots. Discovered local seafood harbour and shop 3miles from the house at Kallin- fabulous. House traditional in decor and furnishing, but very comfortable....More
