​​Taigh Mairi was my home for some time therefore our aim is to make your holiday as enjoyable and comfortable as possible and we would like to think that Taigh Mairi will be like a home from home for you too.

 We are a short walk from the beach and the house is also less than a minute walk to the bus stop for the main bus route through the islands.  As parents of 3 young children I 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, DVDs and books to make your stay more enjoyable.

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.

Kallin Harbour.jpgI 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.
