Taigh Mairi in Grimsay, North Uist, is a fantastic place to stay. Its central position makes it ideal for visiting all the islands, north and south. During our stay we visited Eriskay in the south and Harris in the north. The ferry port at Loch Maddy is an easy 20 minute drive from the house. The views from every room are magnificent. Sitting on the front porch watching the evening sun set over the ford is a special treat.
The house itself is super. I've stayed in many holiday houses, both in the UK and abroad. Where Taigh Mairi differs is that it isn't set up as a holiday let, the feeling is that you've been invited to stay in someone's home. It's spacious, comfortable and three en-suites as well as a main bathroom is great for families. The garden is safe and secure for small children (and pets) with friendly sheep in the neighbouring field.
The only downside is that I only booked for one week - won't make that mistake next time!! Can't recommend this house highly enough!
Location was ideal - not too far to the nearest shops, petrol etc, but also handy for exploring North Uist. Plenty of space and great views from every window. Had a great week.
