The scattered crofting township of Bornesketaig is situated on the popular Trotternish Peninsula which lies approximately 5 miles north of the village of Uig and approximately 21 miles from Portree the principal town of the Isle of Skye. The area is renowned for its scenery and spectacular sunsets as well as being popular with walkers and wildlife enthusiasts.

Although there are no shops in Bornesketaig itself there is a shop/bakery and further small shop with a petrol station in Uig where you will also find a primary school, pub, hotel, brewery and pottery, Uig is also the ferry port for ferries going to Lochmaddy on North Uist and Tarbert in Harris. Portree offers a wider range of shops as well as leisure facilities, library, secondary school, dentists and doctor’s surgery.

Tigh Mhartainn is a large detached property situated in a quiet rural location enjoying wonderful views out towards the Western Isles and across to the Trotternish Ridge. Although the property is very much a warm and welcoming family home the layout of the acommodation lends itself to those wishing to offer B & B to visitors to the island. On the ground floor of the property are two reception rooms, a large bathroom, utility room and a good sized kitchen with ample space for a dining table and sofa. Also on the ground floor is a large store room which offers potential for a number of uses. There are two staircases leading up to the top floor of the property, one at the front giving access to two bedrooms and a shower room and another staircase to the rear giving access to a further two bedrooms and further shower room. The reception rooms and front bedrooms are afforded views towards the Trotternish Ridge whilst the kitchen, store room and one of the rear upstairs bedrooms enjoy views towards the Western Isles. The focal point of the kitchen is the oil fired Rayburn which also provides heat to the rest of the house as well as hot water and is a very pleasant place to sit with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the wonderful views across the Minch to the Western Isles.
