Tigh Cilmartin, Isle of Skye - Luxury self catering, sleeps six, free wi - fi.



Updated: 22-Oct-2016
Formerly a Church of Scotland Manse, the house was designed by Thomas Telford.

Elegant and spacious accommodation awaits you at this former Church of Scotland manse, on the beautiful Isle of Skye. Bursting with character and lavishly equipped with all of the mod cons you would hope for, Tigh Cilmartin offers self catering accommodation of the highest standard for up to 6 people. Set within the tranquil and magnificent surroundings of the crofting community of Staffin, located on the north-east coast of the Isle of Skye, the house boasts glorious views of the Quiraing and surrounding countryside.

The Walker Family pride themselves on attention to detail and having taken many self-catering holidays themselves, they decided that Tigh Cilmartin would have everything that they and their guests would expect from a luxury holiday home, to ensure that every need is catered for and relaxation is paramount.

After an exciting and invigorating day of exploring this magnificent Island, enjoy a wonderful night’s sleep in the super king-size beds, adorned with crisp cotton sheets and cosy duvets whilst relaxing to the tranquil sounds of the River Kilmartin outside your bedroom window.

Extra care has been taken to ensure that guests will be comfortable whatever the weather, including a cosy wood burning stove with a plentiful supply of logs, central heating, a good supply of books and DVD’s and for when the sun is shining, a BBQ to enjoy in the grounds of this idyllic holiday home. There is also free wireless broadband available.

If you want to get away from the fast pace of everyday life and feel the need to recharge your batteries, plan your trip to the magical Isle of Skye and make Tigh Cilmartin your home from home. Tigh Cilmartin is a very special and much loved home for the Walker family and they hope that their guests will benefit from spending time in it as much as they do.

Mid-week and short break stays are available throughout the year.

Formerly a Church of Scotland Manse, Tigh Cilmartin was designed by Thomas Telford and built in 1828.

Lovingly renovated by The Walker family, The House is a category B listed property and has maintained many of its original features, including sash and casement windows, wood panelled walls and open fireplaces.

Dry stone walls surround the house, which stands on the banks of the River Kilmartin, benefiting from spectacular views of the Quiraing Pinnacles.

Tigh Cilmartin is perfect for a family or 2-3 couples who are looking for that little bit extra, with spacious accommodation offering more freedom and flexibility than a hotel. The House is also equipped with free wireless broadband for those who wish to stay in touch.

Wish We Could Stay Longer

  • 5 of 5

This was a three night stay on a 2 week tour of Scotland with 4 adults and 1 child. The cottage was the perfect country getaway. It was so well appointed and was fully what we expected and more. The beds and linens we heavenly, like a luxury hotel. The kitchen, dining, living and bathrooms were all spacious and relaxing. We loved the sheep roaming in the field around the house and the sound of the creek running passed the yard. The house is quiet and private, just set back from the road and still very easy to find. We enjoyed the wifi and selection of books and movies at the end of a long day of exploring. The location is very convenient to hiking and the northern part of Skye. Portree was a short drive for ample restaurants and shopping. The owner provided excellent information in advance and upon arrival about the house and area.
